Adnoc Distribution Q2 profit rises 2.2% as company eyes expansion
Adnoc Distribution, the UAE’s biggest fuel and convenience retailer, reported a 2.2 per cent rise in second-quarter net income as the company looks to expand.
Net profit rose to Dh595 million for the three-month period ending June, the company said in a regulatory filing to the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, where its shares trade. Revenue declined by 5.2 per cent to reach Dh5.5 billion.
"During the remainder of 2019 we are focused on the acceleration of our domestic network expansion, particularly in Dubai, and the growth of our non-fuel business to provide a superior experience to our customers,” acting chief executive Saeed Al Rashdi said.
"Our priorities remain growth and shareholder returns, underpinned by our progressive dividend policy. As previously announced, we intend to boost top-line growth in both our fuel and non-fuel businesses, and have targeted in excess of Dh3.67bn of Ebitda [earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation] by 2023,” he said.
Adnoc Distribution, which floated 10 per cent of its shares in 2017, has since expanded its portfolio to 379 retail fuel stations in the UAE by the end of the second quarter.
Three new stations were opened in the country in the first half of the year while two are under commission. The company remains on track to open 20 to 30 new stations across the Emirates this year, with a focus on expanding in Dubai, Adnoc Distribution said.
Net profit for the first half, meanwhile, increased by 4.3 per cent to Dh1.17bn, despite a 1.7 per cent decline in total volume of fuel and lower inventory gains. The company credited the performance to its cost optimisation as well as continued momentum in convenience stores.
In an interview with Bloomberg, chief operating officer, Mohamed Al Hashimi, said Adnoc Distribution is open to acquisitions and is focused on entering the Indian lubricants market, which is also on the radar of the other UAE fuel retailer, Emirates National Oil Company.
