CAIRO Jan 29 (Reuters) - Palm Hills, Egypt's second-biggest listed property developer, turned a profit of 236.8 million Egyptian pounds ($34 million) in 2013, the company said on Wednesday.

The luxury real estate developer made a net loss of 134.6 million pounds in the previous year, it said in a statement.

The firm struggled in 2012 after it faced investigations into previous state land sales and client cancellations after an uprising toppled president Hosni Mubarak in 2011. ($1 = 6.9618 Egyptian pounds) (Reporting by Asma Alsharif; editing by Tom Pfeiffer)
