Dividend

The company is declared an interim dividend in respect of the financial period ended 30 June 2019 of USD1.11368 cents per share.



Company outlook

Performance for the first half of the year remained in line with the Group's expectations for the full year. We continue to expect volume growth for the full year, including the Engen-branded markets, to be within our guidance range of low to mid double-digit percentage growth. Overall gross cash unit margins are now expected to be at the upper end of or slightly ahead of the previous guidance of the high sixties per thousand litres for the year. We also expect to see an improvement in working capital in H2. We opened a net total of 41 service stations across our markets in the first half of the year and are on track to achieve our target of 80-100 new sites across our markets during 2019, with capital expenditures expected to be marginally below USD150 million for the year. We are excited by the future prospects of the enlarged Group and the opportunities that are ahead.

Vivo Energy plc, the pan-African retailer and marketer of Shell and Engen-branded fuels and lubricants, provides the following trading update ahead of its Annual General Meeting being held later today, 7 May 2019, in London.



Group performance

The Group had a positive start to 2019 with performance in line with expectations.



Q1 volumes of 2 441 million litres were 7% higher year-on-year, with volume growth resulting from good underlying growth in Vivo Energy's existing fifteen Shell-branded markets and one month of contribution from the eight new Engen-branded markets and the additional sites in Kenya. In March, the one month of the new combined Group, volumes were 13% higher year-on-year than Vivo Energy's standalone performance the previous year. With the full contribution from the new markets for the rest of 2019, we expect volume growth to be in line with full year guidance of low to mid double-digit percentage growth.



Gross cash unit margin of USD69 per thousand litres in Q1 was in line with full year guidance of high sixties per thousand litres (Q1 2018: USD74 per thousand litres), with Retail unit margins having stabilised in the quarter due to an improvement in market conditions in our deregulated markets. Commercial unit margin benefited from good performance in the LPG and Marine businesses, and Lubricants margins began to recover in Q1, primarily due to the impact of pricing improvements in retail lubricants, which started in 2018.

Vivo announced the completion of the transaction with Engen Holdings (Pty) Ltd. ("Engen" or "EHL") previously announced on 18 September 2018. The transaction adds operations in eight new countries and 230 Engen-branded service stations to Vivo's network, taking its total presence to over 2,000 service stations, across 23 African markets. The new markets for Vivo are Gabon, Malawi, Mozambique, Reunion, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Engen's Kenya operations (where Vivo already operates) is the ninth country included in the transaction.



As per previous announcements, consideration for the transaction comprises an issue by Vivo of 63.2 million new shares and USD62.1 million in cash. The cash element of the consideration has been funded by a draw down on Vivo's multi-currency facility.



The newly allotted and issued shares are expected to be admitted to the Official List and to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange on 4 March 2019 and to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on or about the 4 March 2019. Following the share issuance Engen will hold a circa 5.0% shareholding in Vivo Energy.



On the basis of information provided by Engen, Vivo believes that the 2018 financial performance of the target group will be similar to 2017. Increased fuel volumes, driven by the commercial segment, are expected to have been offset by lower margins, primarily due to mix effects. Vivo will provide full year guidance for 2019, incorporating the ten months of contribution of the new Engen markets, with its full year results announcement on 6 March 2019.



Following the transaction, EHL retains its interest in Engen Petroleum Ltd. (its South Africa business and refinery) and its businesses in Mauritius, Botswana, Ghana, Namibia, Swaziland and Lesotho, which are not part of the transaction. Engen's business in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) remains under evaluation by Vivo, pending any agreement between Engen and the DRC Government regarding the transfer of the subsidiary holding Engen's DRC interests.
