Leading independent oil company Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc. (PNX.PM) posted a net income of Php 282 million in the first quarter of 2017, an 11% growth from the P255 million in the same period last year, as a result of better sales mix and higher efficiencies.
Revenues increased by 35% to Php 8.7 billion, driven by a 39% increase in fuel sales. The Company completed 515 Phoenix retail service stations as of the first quarter, with more stations being constructed to be opened this year. Phoenix also continues to acquire new direct accounts to grow its commercial business portfolio, which include power, transport, construction, aviation, and manufacturing sectors.
