The company’s debt settlement arrangements, an initiative which began in 2020, remained successful this year, and enabled four financiers to fully settle their exposure during the period H1 2021.
Amlak’s focus on efficient operations in 2021 delivered a 16% reduction in operating costs to AED 43 million in H1 2021 (H1 2020: AED 51 million).
