UAE-based fuel and convenience retailer ADNOC Distribution has reported a 39 per cent rise in net profit equalling Dhs2.33bn for the first nine months of 2022. It rose 45 per cent year-on-year in Q3 to reach Dhs767m.

Its EBITDA rose 26 per cent to total Dhs2.86bn for the first nine months of the year and amounted to Dhs868m for Q3, marking a 18 per cent rise.

The company said that it witnessed a 7 per cent year-on-year rise in total fuel volumes over the first nine months of 2022, on the back of the UAE’s economic growth, increased traffic at service stations, and substantial increases in corporate fuel volumes.

A total of 37 sites are now in operation across Dubai, while its nationwide network consists of 481 stations, as of September 30, 2022. The company also noted a 18 per cent increase in non-fuel transactions for Q1-Q3. Non-fuel gross profit also rose 9 per cent, driven by initiatives, higher traffic at stations and higher F&B sales, the statement added.

During the first nine months of 2022, ADNOC Distribution opened 21 new stations in the country, nine of which opened in the third quarter. The company also advanced its international expansion, announcing a transaction to acquire a 50 per cent stake in TotalEnergies Marketing Egypt. The acquisition is expected to be completed in Q1 2023 pending satisfaction of certain conditions, including customary regulatory approvals.
