"We achieved the double digit growth we promised our shareholders at last year's Shafafiyah Investor's Forum thanks to the solid performance of our companies throughout the year. The 2013 results mark KIPCO's twenty-second consecutive year of profitability. The very positive performance trends in all our core sectors - including banking, media, real estate and insurance - were evident in the growth and profitability of our companies during 2013. In particular, our broadcast company, OSN, continued to deliver strong improvement in revenue and profit, and subscriber numbers are now close to the one million mark. We believe that all signs point to an economic recovery that will allow KIPCO to continue its growth trend in the coming years.
