“The volume of sales of fuels was approximately 886.6 million litres, about 11% above that of the previous year, thus overtaking growth in the industry which was 9%. The biggest contribution to sales revenue came from our two main products, “diesel” and “super” of which our Ron 95 variety is the market leader.”
Mr. Laryea also gave more insights into the company’s performance for last year.
“GOIL’s financial performance showed signs of recovery, registering a profit after tax of Gh¢ 98.74 million, up by 9% compared to the year 2020. However, the Company is yet to achieve a figure higher than the corresponding figure registered prior to the year 2020 which was approximately Gh¢ 105 million.
Earnings per share increased from Gh¢ 0.23 to GHS 0.253. Total assets increased from 2.1 billion Cedis to approximately 2.5 billion Cedis.”
“Our financial performance meant the Board was able to approve a final dividend of GH¢ 0.047 per share for 2021 compared with the Gh¢ 0.045 in 2020.”
