Unipetrol Q2 revenue escalates 31% to CZK 32.440 bn
Jul '14
In Q2 Unipetrol Group posted revenues of CZK 32.440 bn, indicating an increase of 31% y/y compared with the Q2 of 2013. The increase was especially driven by the operation of higher refining capacity in Ceska rafinerska and higher sales volumes across all segments (refinery, petrochemical, retail). 
-Continuous significant increase of sales volumes across all segments
-Very tough refining macro environment continued
-Profitability negatively impacted by impairment of fixed assets in refinery segment
-Operating profit EBITDA LIFO excluding impairment reached positive level of CZK 1.044 bn
-Petrochemical segment continued solid performance with EBITDA LIFO of CZK 856 million
-New crude oil transportation contract between Ceská Rafinérská and Transpetrol for 2015 – 2016 signed
Operational profit EBITDA LIFO was affected by one-off impairment of refining segment assets in Q2. Company recorded operational profit (EBITDA LIFO) of CZK-3.677 bn. Operating profitability excluding one-off impairment reached positive result of CZK 1.044 bn CZK in Q2 which implies improvement by CZK 381 m compared with Q2 of 2013.
“We recognized impairment of fixed assets of the refinery segment, due to the deteriorated mid-term outlook for refining business profitability. Operational profit EBITDA LIFO excluding this one-off item reached positive level of one billion CZK," said Marek Switajewski, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Unipetrol.”
“Very good results were posted especially within petrochemical segment, but higher sales volumes were recorded within all three segments y/y," added Marek Switajewski. 
In the refinery segment, the volume of crude processed in Q2 reached 1,331 kt, which represents 47% increase y/y. Nominal utilization ratio increased to 90% in Q2. The refinery segment recorded EBITDA LIFO of CZK -4.647 bn in 2Q14, mainly due to one-off impairment of fixed assets driven by deteriorated mid-term outlook. 
Excluding this one-off item the refinery segment posted slightly positive result (CZK +74m), first time since 4Q12. Group sales of refinery products increased to 1,130 kt (+39% y/y) in Q2, mainly due to completion of the transaction and increased share in Ceska rafinerska and thank to production without limitations compared to 2Q13.
