Abu Dhabi, UAE – March 24, 2022: AD Ports Group today released its audited 2021 financial results for the 12 months ended December 31, 2021, following on from the announcement of its preliminary financial results in February 2022.
The Group reported revenue growth of 14% year-on-year to AED 3.9 billion in 2021, compared with AED 3.4 billion in 2020, driven by volume growth, business diversification and new partnerships.
EBITDA increased to AED 1.6 billion during 2021, up from AED 1.5 billion in 2020.
Net Profit reached AED 853 million in 2021, up from AED 397 million in 2020.
As of December 31, 2021, the Total Assets of the Group stood at AED 28.1 billion, while the Equity increased to AED 10.7 billion.
General cargo volumes reached record levels of 45 million metric tonnes in 2021, up from 30 million metric tonnes in 2020, while economic cities and free zones leased 3.0 million sqm of land during the period, reflecting the wider economic recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Container throughput grew to 3.4 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in 2021, up from 3.2 million TEUs in 2020, despite the ongoing supply chain constraints faced in the global shipping and container market.

In February 2022, AD Ports Group announced that it had acquired Divetech Marine Engineering Services, a UAE-based topside-subsea solutions provider. Additionally, in February 2022, the Group raised equity of AED 4.0 billion through a pre-listing primary issuance.
