Manama, March 31, 2011

Underwriting profit increased from BD1.95 million for 2009 to BD2.08 million last year, shareholders were told at the company's annual meeting yesterday.
Al Ahlia deputy chairman Adel Hassan Ali Al Aali said that despite a marginal reduction in gross premium, the company could improve both net profit and underwriting profit for 2010 as it scrupulously followed prudent underwriting measures and efficient claims management system.
The company's investment income for 2010 was BD984,996 compared to the previous year income of BD871,677 and earnings per share for the year was 43 fils as against 2009 earnings of 37 fils.
