THIRD-QUARTER REVENUE: +13%
VOLUME GROWTH: +20%
The Group’s third-quarter 2015 revenue grew by 13% to €814 million (-5.7% at constant scope).
The main items of change in the scope of consolidation over the period were the full consolidation of SARA (up from 35.5%), Eres (bitumen) split between Rubis Énergie and Rubis Support and Services, and SRPP (Reunion Island) over two months.
At constant scope, total volumes were up a healthy 3.3%.
The continued decline in prices of petroleum products (propane: -56%) had a deflationary effect on Rubis Énergie’s nominal revenue (-6.7% at constant scope), while continuing to generate a favorable situation for the unit margin in the third-quarter.
There have been no events since the release of the interim financial statements as of June 30, 2015 liable to significantly alter the Group’s financial position, which remained strong at the end of the quarter.
Volumes sold in retail distribution by Rubis Énergie totaled 747,000 m3 over the period, an increase of 23%. At constant scope, volume growth was 1.2%.
Geographical breakdown of volumes
The inclusion of the bitumen and fuel oil business in West Africa and Reunion Island contributed to an increase of approximately 130,000 m3 over the quarter.
Rubis Support and Services which includes SARA revenues (Antilles refinery) and all shipping, trading and services activities, generated revenue of €175 million. The strong increase in revenue is attributable to the full consolidation of SARA and that of Eres, which is strongly positioned in shipping and trading activities.
Rubis Terminal overall storage revenues – taking into account 100% of all terminals under management – were strong, with an increase of 7.5% (46 €M).
Rubis Terminal’s storage revenues (excluding Antwerp and Ceyhan) totaled €33 million, a decline of 4%, prompting the following comments:
In France, revenue from all products combined fell slightly (-2%):
Rotterdam (-6%): marketing of a new contract on heavy fuel oil capacity began early in the period, helping gradually offset the delay accumulated in the first half. Chemical product revenues were stable (-1%).
Antwerp and Ceyhan (Turkey), the revenues of which are no longer consolidated, recorded growth of 32%, driven by a continuation of steep growth in Turkey (+104%) and a fair increase in Antwerp (+10%).
Trading revenue totaled €42 million (+5%), with no significant impact on results.
