Hussain Sajwani, executive chairman and chief executive officer of DAMAC, says: “2013 was a transformational year for DAMAC, with a significant increase in sales and profitability. This was achieved against the backdrop of a recovery in the Dubai economy and the real estate market which allowed us to launch innovative new projects including our first master development ‘AKOYA by DAMAC’, into an environment where high customer demand for luxury product far exceeds a low supply.
‘’2014 has started well and we are well positioned for continued robust growth, albeit on a more measured basis in the medium to long term. It is particularly pleasing to note that our brand is now synonymous with the highest quality luxury developments, not just in Dubai, but throughout the Middle East.
‘’Following our successful listing on the London Stock Exchange, we now look forward to another busy and successful year.”
