According to the company, the decrease in revenues is due to a delay in the execution of Solel Boneh projects, but this was partially offset by an increase in activity in Nigeria, Uganda and Ethiopia and an increase in revenues from the sale and rental of apartments in Israel.

Half of this came from the company’s share in the profits of investee companies, which amounted to NIS 66.8 million, compared with a loss of NIS 18.3 million in the corresponding quarter. The change is due to an increase in the profits of companies in the energy sector of NIS 59 million and an improvement of NIS 28 million in the results of companies in the field of franchising. Net financing costs in the quarter amounted to NIS 84.9 million, compared with NIS 66.1 million in the corresponding quarter last year. Most of the increase is due to a 0.8% increase in the index compared to a 0.1% increase in the corresponding quarter.
