Activities and Strategy

ACTIVITIES

Rubis, formed in 1990, is an independent French operator specialising in three business areas:

  • The distribution of petroleum products (service station networks, commercial fuel oil, aviation fuel, LPG, bitumens, etc.), with operations in Europe, the Caribbean and Africa through our subsidiary Rubis Énergie;
  • Support and services, alongside our downstream petroleum products distribution activity, with a midstream position, grouping together refining, trading-supply and shipping operations;
  • Storage through our subsidiary Rubis Terminal, providing storage of liquid products for our customers (petroleum, chemical and agri-food products). Rubis Terminal is a leader in France and also holds operations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Turkey.
Group business model as of December 31, 2018

STRATEGY

The strength of our business model is derived from a unique combination of factors:

  • A strategic position through both geographical and product diversification;
  • The macroeconomic environment, with little exposure to the economic cycle (sale / distribution of essential goods or services);
  • A sound financial position with well-controlled debt, surplus cash flow and a steadily increasing dividend that offers a sizeable yield;
  • And a decentralized system that promotes short channels and encourages local managers to work with autonomy.
