New opportunities and challenges have been created for the Company in the natural gas market, on which where we are becoming an active participant. Therefore, personal changes on key positions are a natural need, which results from the dynamic development of both projects. The goal of the new President will not only be to continue the expansion of the Company, but also to ensure that strategic goals of the whole Group are being achieved. With reference to the plans of UNIMOT S.A. for the oncoming year, connected with transferring to the WSE Main Market, this is a responsible mission. I am convinced that Mr Robert Brzozowski is the right person to meet this challenge.

– I would like to thank the previous President Mr Przemysław Podgórski for the commitment and participation in the development of the UNIMOT Group, who presided the Board since August 2014, and in previous years was the Member of the Management Board of the Company. His precious experience and skills will be used in other aspects of the Group’s functioning.

The decision was made on the basis of initial results that the Company achieved in the nine months of the current year, which show that the formerly projected net result and EBIDATA have been exceeded by 20% and plans of the financial department for the remaining months in the scope of expanding the wholesale of diesel oil, dynamic development of biofuel sales and stable level of LPG sales constitute a basis for raising the forecasts.
The current forecasts assume that the Company will make the net profit of PLN 11 million, that is by 61% higher than in the former forecast, and the value of EBITDA is forecast at the level of PLN 16 million, that is by 39% more than it was assumed.
