Meanwhile, net profits of the listed transport companies jumped by 51 percent to hit SR1.06 billion by the end of the year compared to SR706 million in 2012, according to the media report



Based on the latest data, the capital market of the four-listed transport firms stood at SR16.2 billion, or 0.89 percent of the Saudi stock market, as their capitals reached SR4.9 billion



The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) recorded the highest revenues of the four firms at SR1.17 billion compared to SR852 million in 2012, on an increase of 37.7 percent



Net profits of the company rose by 48.43 percent to SR748.1 million in 2013 compared to SR504 million in 2012. The profit growth was attributed to the increased profits of its subsidiary companies



Meanwhile, Budget Saudi Arabia was the second largest firm in terms of revenues which jumped to SR615 million in 2013 compared to SR532.2 million in 2012, or an increase of 14.47 percent. Its net profits rose by 19.42 percent to hit SR150.2 million compared to SR125.77 million in 2012.

Profits of the company also grew by 5.1 percent to SR77.58 million in 2013 compared to SR73.8 million in 2012.
