HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex) had sold 30 million shares at its subsidiaries in the first quarter of the year.
In a document sent to the HCM City Stock Exchange Petrolimex said it sold eight million shares at Petrolimex International Trading Joint Stock Company (PIT), accounting for 56.3 per cent of PIT’s chartered capital. After the transaction, it has no longer been a big shareholder at PIT.

It posted a consolidated pre-tax profit of VNĐ1.2 trillion (US$53 million) in the first quarter of the year.
This figure represented an 89 per cent year-on-year increase and met 24 per cent of the set target.
Petrolimex has announced its consolidated financial report of the parent company and its affiliates in all business areas: petroleum, gas, lubricants, petroleum transportation, engineering and mechanics.
Accordingly, the profit from its petroleum business was VNĐ611 billion ($27 million), equivalent to 50.6 per cent of the total consolidated profit. Up to 3.38 million cu.m. of petroleum was sold in the first quarter of 2018, an increase of 17.6 per cent over the same period last year.

Its total consolidated after-tax profit in the first quarter was VNĐ1 trillion ($44 million), of which that of the parent company was VNĐ898 billion ($39 million).
Its total consolidated net revenue was VNĐ45.4 trillion ($2 billion), up 27 per cent over the same period last year. The increased revenue resulted from the average price of crude oil in the first quarter of 2018 reaching $62.89 per barrel, a year-on-year rise of 21.5 per cent (the average price of crude oil in the same quarter of 2017 was $51.78 per barrel).
Petrolimex contributed VNĐ10.7 trillion ($471 million) to the State budget in the January-March period, posting a 17.7 per cent year-on-year increase.
The group would continue trading high quality products, protecting the environment and developing general solutions to mobilise all forces to increase sales of target commodities including E5 RON92 petrol, diesel level V and 95 IV petrol in the second quarter of the year.
It would increase investments to fortify the network of petrol stations, while continuing to accelerate restructuring, mostly focusing on divestment in the banking sector. — VNS
