SABIC today reported its earnings for the second quarter of 2022. The company’s revenue for the second quarter reached SAR 55.98 ($ 14.93 billion), representing an increase of 6% compared to the previous quarter and a 32% increase year-on-year.
Net income during the second quarter totaled SAR 7.93 billion [$ 2.11 billion]. This is higher than both the net income of SAR 6.47 billion [$ 1.73 billion] in the previous quarter and the net income of SAR 7.64 billion [$ 2.04 billion] in the second quarter of 2021.
Yousef Abdullah Al-Benyan, SABIC’s Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The second quarter strong financial results demonstrates SABIC’s robust operational performance across the different segments. Our commitment to sustainability and innovation was evident through winning two silver and three bronze awards in the prestigious Edison Awards. These awards also reflect our commitment to helping achieve our long term objective of carbon neutrality by 2050.
Mr. Al-Benyan continued, “Distributing dividends to our shareholders remains a priority for SABIC. In June 2022, SABIC’s board approved a cash dividend distribution of SAR 2.25 per share for the first half of 2022, approximately 29 % higher than the cash dividend distribution of SAR 1.75 per share for the first half of 2021.
