In the first nine months of 2023, MEEZA’s Net Profit reached QR 46.0 million, representing a 29.0% (or QR 10.4 million) increase over the same period last year and the highest nine-month period profit in the Company’s history, mainly driven by revenue growth.

The Company’s revenue grew by 23.8% (or QR 59.8 million) to reach QR 311.2 million, led by growth in the IT Solution Services and Managed Services segments.
EBITDA for the period increased by 4.1% (or QR 3.7 million) to reach QR 92.8 million, primarily driven by revenue growth and continued cost optimization. EBITDA margin declined from 35.5% to 29.8% due to a higher contribution of IT Solution Services revenue to the overall revenue mix.
MEEZA boasts a healthy financial position with a cash balance of QR 258.6 million, in addition to QR 1.2 billion in future committed contract value.
Most notably during the third quarter, the Company officially listed 100% of its shares on the Qatar Stock Exchange (ticker: MEZA) on 23 August 2023.
