We continued to grow our global platforms and made new investments into promising international markets. We remain firmly focused on helping to develop a diversified, globally integrated and innovation-driven economy for Abu Dhabi with strong career opportunities for its citizens.”

Financial highlights for the period ended 30th June 2013:

  • Total comprehensive income increased to AED 2.1 billion compared to AED 1.1 billion in H1 2012 driven by improvements in the fair value of many of the Group’s financial investments and other assets.
  • Revenues decreased to AED 14.8 billion compared to AED 16 billion in H1 2012. The year-on-year decrease was in large part due to the one-time exceptional revenue increase recorded in 2012 related to semiconductor manufacturing and to lower hydrocarbon revenues. Significant revenue increases were seen in Mubadala’s satellite communications business, Yahsat, in comparison to H1 2012.
  • Operating income decreased to AED 614 million compared to AED 2.3 billion in H1 2012 due to an increase in investment-related spending across the Group, in particular accelerated research and development.
  • Total assets increased to AED 204 billion as at the end of June 2013 compared to 202.2 billion as at the end of 2012.
  • Total equity increased to AED 141.2 billion as at the end of June 2013 compared to AED 135.4 billion at the end of 2012.
  • Total liabilities & leverage. Total liabilities decreased to AED 62.7 billion as at the end of June 2013 compared to AED 66.8 billion as at the end of 2012. Mubadala’s gearing ratio decreased from 18.6% at the end of 2012 to 14.3% at the end of June 2013.
  • Mubadala’s credit ratings were recently reaffirmed among the top corporate ratings globally at Aa3/AA/AA by Moody’s, S&P and Fitch, respectively.
