Market

Independent petrol stations gain momentum – more than 40 per cent growth

The market for free petrol stations is booming. In 2013, the Spanish government passed a law decreeing that groups like Repsol, Cepsa, BP and Galp may only dispose of a maximum market share of 30%. At present, these groups unite approximately 60 per cent. This means that in a way the “monopoly” of the global players has been prohibited to enable free competition in this market segment for smaller and medium-sized market players, too.

Since then about 300 new “independent” petrol stations have opened in Spain in the last 18 months. These petrol stations will become part of everyday life.

Since the global economic crisis a new business model, which is based on the low-cost-principle, could increasingly established itself in the cities.
By means of simplifying the service, the customer is offered a better price.

Market

According to several studies in the industry the Spanish market is by far not yet saturated.
The fuel consumption increased from 36.4 billion litres in 2014 to 37.9 billion litres in 2015.
This corresponds to a sales increase of 4.12 per cent.


Business Model

What makes Westport Energie so successful?

The majority of petrol stations work on the principle of self-service, and to pay the customers need to go inside or to a counter to see the staff. These additional costs are obviously be added to the fuel prices.

To be able to offer our customer even cheaper prices, this process has mainly been automated in our petrol stations.

Financing

Fresh capital will be generated to finance the expansion of the business activities by means of an IPO in the 4th quarter 2017.

Why invest in Westport Energie?

  • Westport Energie is present in a highly profitable and fast growing market. Thanks to initial investments already made into petrol station the project has already been started. With the planned expansion to other locations amounting to 5 million euros – over the course of the next 2 years –
    the sales of the company will increase drastically.
  • The company has the necessary know-how on the Spanish market in the areas of industry, finance and marketing to be able to successfully give the company a stable position on the market and to establish it in the long term as a profitable entity.
  • WPE Group already operates petrol station with a proven success.
  • The business model realises a low working capital.
    This means: No funds are committed for the purchase of property or for warehouses.
  • According to market surveys of independent institutes the crude oil market will exist in its current focus for at least another two generations.

Differentiators

The majority of petrol stations work on the principle of self-service, and to pay the customers need to go inside or to a counter to see the staff. These additional costs must obviously be added to the fuel prices. To be able to offer our customer even cheaper prices, this process has mainly been automated in our Easy Fuel Stations.

The result:

  • Reduced costs
  • Lower end consumer prices
  • More sales
  • More profitability

Additionally, all petrol station operators in Spain must without exception purchase their fuel and lubricators from the only (state-owned) provider – the company CLH. This again increases the affordability of our products.

The flexibility practiced thanks to our corporate structure is a significant advantage compared to our competitors. The grown customer relations are maintained and fostered carefully, and new customers are canvassed and courted.

Westport Energie offers fuel of at least the same good quality and for up to 7 cents per litre below the price of its competitors.

In rural areas where there is less traffic and the network of petrol stations is not as close-knit as in metropolitan areas the system is already known and used. Now, this business model also enters urban areas. Consumers accept it very well. Whoever can save up to 15 euros for a standard tank of fuel, is normally not bothered if they have to put the nozzle in the tank themselves.

No tricks – only clever.

Westport Energie AG: Expansion of network of petrol stations is actively promoted, also through cooperation with local partners

14. December 2016

Continue reading

Baar/Madrid – At present, Westport Energie AG (ISIN: CH0323028271 / WKN: A2AJGC) – one of the fastest growing companies in the Spanish crude oil industry – focuses specifically on the planned operational growth as part of implementing its corporate structure. Four state-of-the-art, mainly automated petrol stations in the Spanish towns of Pisa, Barcelona, Chiclana de la Frontera and Lerma are already in operation. Construction is in process at a fifth site in El Puerto de Santa Maria in the province of Cádiz (Spain). In this project, the cooperation that started with local partners highlights how the management of Westport goes about the site selection and the subsequent construction.

Westport Energie AG does not only pay attention to the local infrastructure, but it also consciously seeks the proximity to potential large customers in the retail or wholesale sector. It has, for example, recently signed contracts with the food retailer “Día”, one of the largest Spanish supermarket chains, and with “SEUR”, a large logistics company. Both companies will fill their fleets at Westport, once the site is finished. Negotiations are also held with the beverage producer Coca Cola. Westport Energie AG shows that its offer is interesting for trade partners.

Other projects at predestined sites are at the planning stage. In the future, it is planned to open up to 10 petrol stations per year. Westport Energie AG assesses various options to finance the planned expansion of the network of petrol stations. Apart from new approved capital, which the Extraordinary General Meeting should pass on 21 December 2016, the shareholders are also suggested an ordinary capital increase of 500,000.00 CHF with a maximum of 500,000.00 CHF to a maximum of 1,000,000.00 CHF while being granted the shareholders’ legal subscription right. The issuing price will be determined at the Extraordinary General Meeting. It is still unclear whether, when and to what extent a capital measure will take place. This will also be discussed openly at the General Meeting, and the company invites the shareholders to actively participate in it.

Westport Energie AG is planning to implement the already proven way of selecting its site and cooperating with principal customers in the future in other projects. A successful local cooperation would have a positive effect on the sales and revenue development of the Westport Group.

Westport Energie AG is one of the fastest growing companies in the Spanish crude oil sector. The company offers crude oil products through its own brands in this high to medium-frequency market segment.

In this difficult and often sad everyday life the foundation “Wunderlampe” creates a moment of joy and light with a wonderful unforgettable event. Since its creation in 2001 it has been able to make many desires come true. The foundation “Wunderlampe” endeavours to fulfil the heart’s desire of every child in a very personalised manner and full of empathy, because every child’s fate is different.
