How Do Unusual Items Influence Profit?

To properly understand National Industrialization's profit results, we need to consider the ر.س375m expense attributed to unusual items. It's never great to see unusual items costing the company profits, but on the upside, things might improve sooner rather than later. We looked at thousands of listed companies and found that unusual items are very often one-off in nature. And that's hardly a surprise given these line items are considered unusual.
