"Agility continues to grow the bottom line with all entities showing improvements in their financial performance.

"At the same time managed to improve net revenue margins by boosting commercial performance in other areas and realizing gains in technology-driven transformation and productivity initiatives. Agility Infrastructure companies continue to grow, fueled by new opportunities in the Middle East and Africa." The Group's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) were KD 25.50 million, an 8 percent increase compared to Q3 2013 with margin improving from 7.23 percent in Q3 2013 to 7.57 percent in this quarter, reads the statement.

"Agility also remains open to any business opportunity that might be accretive in value for our shareholders." Sultan added.
As for Agility's Global Integrated Logistics (GIL), the statement unveiled that the GIL revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was KD 267.80 million a 4 percent decline from the same period last year; however, net revenues have improved by 2.2 percent, with margins expanding from 21.8 percent in Q3 2013 to 23.34 percent in Q3 2014 driven by better performance of contract logistics specifically in the Middle East.
"We have managed to stay agile and responsive in a world where growth is slowing, trade patterns are changing and competition is intensifying. We have shown good progress in our technology driven transformation, where we are building a new operating system aimed at improving productivity, service and growth.
Meanwhile, Agility's Infrastructure Group contributed KD 69.39 million to third quarter 2014 revenues, a 16 percent increase over Q3 2013. Agility Real Estate grew revenue by 11 percent this quarter compared with the same period last year.
