Orascom Financial Holding has made a total net income of EGP 36.7 mn since its inception in December last year on revenues of EGP 248.4 mn, according to the company’s financial statements (pdf). In 2Q2021, OFH generated EGP 17.3 mn in net income on revenues of EGP 119.7 mn.

Pioneers Holding’s net income fell over 57% to EGP 223.2 mn during 2Q2021 from EGP 529.7 mn the year before, according to the company’s financial statement (pdf). The drop came despite revenues climbing 22% to EGP 2.2 bn during the quarter from EGP 1.8 bn last year.

Tourism developer Remco generated net income of EGP 197.4 mn during 2Q2021, rebounding from a tough quarter last year when the company made a EGP 209.9 mn loss due to the shuttering of the country’s tourism sector due to covid, figures from the company’s quarterly financials (pdf) show.
