01 Nov 2021

Global energy management company World Fuel Services (WFS) on Thursday (28 October) recorded 73.5% lower net income on year for the third quarter (Q3) of 2021.

The company posted net income of USD 21.7 million in Q3 2021 compared to USD 82.0 million in Q3 2020. Revenue in Q3 2021 was USD 8.35 billion, 86.4% higher than revenue of USD 4.48 billion in Q3 2020.

“A strengthening economy combined with easing global travel restrictions contributed to another strong year-over-year increase in aviation activity,” states Michael J. Kasbar, chairman and CEO of WFS.

“Despite lingering effects of the pandemic and ongoing supply chain disruptions, we are well positioned to drive growth in our core business activities while serving the evolving energy requirements of our customers.”

“Our marine segment generated gross profit of $21.9 million, a decrease of 32% year-over-year, driven by a decline in average margins in the core resale business,” added Kasbar.

Revenue of the marine fuels segment was $2.10 billion in Q3 2021, higher than revenue of 1.24 billion recorded in Q3 2020, while income from the segment was $3.6 million in Q3 2021, lower than income of $8.2 million in the similar period last year.

WFS sold 4.8 million metric tonnes (mt) of bunker fuel in Q3 2021, more than the 4.4 million mt delivered during Q3 2020.
