Sales of SAR 174.88 compared to SAR 116.95 in 2020, an increase of SAR 57.93 or 50%, primarily driven by the increase in the average selling prices where the four segments recorded double digits increase in sales for the year ended December 31, 2021 despite the lower sales volume by 3%. Petrochemicals and Specialties sales represent 86% of the group’s total sales in the amount of SAR 149.88, an increase of SAR 49.24 or 49% compared to 2020.

Income from operations of SAR 33.24 compared to SAR 4.57 in 2020, an increase of SAR 28.67 principally due to the improved products margins resulted into an increase in gross profit by SAR 28.45 despite the increase in feedstock prices. Furthermore, the improved margins has also led to an increase in the share of results from integral joint ventures by SAR 2.27, from SAR 1.01 in 2020 to SAR 3.28 in 2021. This was partially offset by an increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses primarily due to the increase in freight costs.
