The bourse made Dh563 million in the first quarter of this year.
The firm expects to earn as much as Dh1.2 billion this year, helped by new regulations lowering the minimum sale for public offerings, Kazim told Reuters in May.
A new law, to be introduced in the second half, would allow a lower minimum public float of 30 per cent, down from the current 55 per cent, on new offerings, he had said. This is likely to encourage more companies to seek listings, Kazim added.The main index of Dubai's bourse has risen 9.39 per cent this year.
