Dubai's DP World says first-half profit jumps almost 52%

DUBAI, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Dubai’s DP World said on Thursday profit jumped almost 52% in the first half of 2021, fuelled by higher consumer spending and a rebound in global trade since the coronavirus pandemic.

DP World, one of the world’s biggest port operators, said profit attributable to owners of the company jumped to $475 million in the period ended June 30, from $313 million last year.

Revenues rose 21% to $4.95 billion, from $4.0 billion in the year earlier period.
