Dubai-based Emaar Properties said on Sunday it posted a net profit of $1.55 billion in 2017, about 8 percent higher than a year earlier.

The developer of the more than 160-storey Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower, had made $1.43 billion in net profit in 2016.

The company clarified on Saturday that the figure was before depreciation.
