The above was adversely counteracted by: 1- Decline in Revenue by 68% to SAR 61.5 million during the first quarter 2018, compared to SAR 193.9 million in the same quarter of 2017, mainly due to decline in new project awards, significant liquidity challenges facing the contracting industry due to delay in payments, reflected in slower progress on ongoing construction projects. 2-Other income has decreased by 37% (SAR 8.7 million) mainly due to decrease in the refund receipts of the government compensation for the increased 2400 expat levy during the first quarter of 2018, as compared to the same quarter of 2017 3-Increase in Zakat expense by (SAR 0.25 million)

External auditor's report containing reservation Qualified Report on the Review of Consolidated Financial Statements Basis of qualified conclusion As of March 31, 2018, the contracts in progress were SR 1.37 billion (December 31,2017: SR 1.39 billion) and trade and other receivables were SR 597.2 million (December 31,2017: SR 593 million) out of which SR 1 billion and SR 299 million respectively are outstanding for more than one year. As required by the International Financial Reporting Standards, the management had carried out an exercise to assess the impairment of the said contract assets as of December 31, 2017 but no additional impairment was booked in the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 based on the said exercise. Moreover, the assumptions and information used in the said impairment exercise were very subjective and we were not provided with detailed workings substantiated with proper evidence to support these at the time of our annual audit. The management maintained the same position by not booking impairment in the consolidated condensed interim financial statements for the three months period ended March 31, 2018. In the absence of a proper analysis of impairment of contract assets as of March 31, 2018, we were unable to determine whether any adjustment for impairment was required to be made against these contract assets. Qualified conclusion Based on our review, with the exception of the matter described in the preceding paragraph, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying consolidated condensed interim financial statements for the three months period ended March 31, 2018 are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting that is endorsed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Material uncertainty relating to going concern Without further qualifying our conclusion, we draw attention to Note 2.4 to the consolidated condensed interim financial statements which indicates that the Group has incurred a gross loss of SR 4.3 million (2017: SR 11.4 million) and net loss of SR 12.7 million (2017: SR 17.7 million). During the three months period March 31, 2018, the Groups revenue has been decreased significantly by 68%. As March 31, 2018, the accumulated losses of the Group were SR 27.1 million (2017: SR 14.4 million). As stated in note 2.4, these events or conditions, along with the other matters as set forth therein, indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on the Groups ability to continue as a going concern However, the management believes the Group as a going concern based on the mitigation plans mentioned in note 2.4 to these consolidated condensed interim financial statements
