Dhcog said it had serviced all public and bank debts and repaid them upon maturity negotiated settlements with contractors and made timely payments and continued development of infrastructure and construction to hand over completed units to its customers. this has resulted in reduction of these liabilities from dh36.7 billion in 2009 to dh19.2 billion in 2013.



Dhcog has made remarkable progress in managing its public and bank debts and has achieved an eight per cent annual reduction from dh15.2 billion in 2009 to dh10.9 billion in 2013. the group’s debt-to-equity ratio dropped from 1.04 in 2009 to 0.6 in 2013 well within the optimal range and industry norms.
