Agility Reports US$197 Million EBITDA for the Second Quarter 2023
Agility has reported second quarter 2023 earnings of US$46 million, or 17 cents per share, a decrease of 11.7% over the same period in 2022.

On a like-for-like basis -- excluding the performance of Menzies Aviation and HG Storage International, which were acquired in August 2022 -- Agility’s EBITDA increased by 9.5% to US$135 million, and revenue grew 8.9% in the second quarter of 2023.
For the first six months of 2023, Agility’s net profit stood at US$97 million, an increase of 2.3%, EBITDA increased by 70.4%, and revenues increased by 139.7% compared to the same period last year.
