Management’s Comments
SABIC Vice Chairman and CEO Mohamed H. Al-Mady noted that the rise of net profits for the first quarter over last year can be attributed to the rise of both production and sales volumes, as well as a remarkable improvement in the prices of most petrochemical products and plastics.

Al-Mady also expressed appreciation for the efforts of all the employees of SABIC and its affiliates, and for their success in adopting the best practices across the board. “We are overcoming the impacts of the global financial crisis, as well as continuing our strategy of growth and investment in new industrial plant,” he said.

He also pointed out that the current year is seeing more productive capacity added through the completion of projects at SHARQ, YANSAB and the joint-venture petrochemical complex in Tianjin, China. “As economies strengthen this will also positively affect the company’s performance and production,” Al-Mady said.
