NNPC Retail Limited, which primarily markets and sells refined petroleum, liquefied petroleum gas, and allied products, was founded in 2002 as a corporate strategic unit of NNPC.

It was formed in 2009 as a limited liability company as a wholly-owned subsidiary of NNPC. In 2020, the company generated 200.3 billion in income from five petroleum products: Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS), Automotive Gas Oil (AGO), Dual Purpose Kerosene (DPK), Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), and Lubricants.

The majority of the revenue was earned from PMS. It accounted for around 79 percent of total income generated, totaling 158.2 billion. The revenue earned by PMS grew by 7.07 percent in comparison to 2019.

AGO was the second-largest contributor, generating roughly $40 billion in 2020. It contributed for around 20% of total revenue. The revenue earned by AGO grew by 9.16 percent in comparison to 2019.

DPK generated 1.3 billion, accounting for 0.65 percent of total sales. DPK generated no income for the company in 2019. LPG generated 558.2 million, accounting for 0.28 percent of total income. This income line increased by 19.29 percent in comparison to 2019.

Lubricants earned the least revenue of any revenue line, accounting for 0.13 percent of total revenue. It earned roughly 255 million dollars. According to the study, NNPC retail did not generate any revenue from lubricants in 2019.
After deducting the cost of sales, the corporation had a gross profit of $17.8 billion. This marks a 15% increase above the $15.5 billion gross profit produced in 2019. Finally, NNPC Retail Limited reported a Profit After Tax (PAT) of 1.48 billion, a 47.33 percent decrease from the 2.82 billion reported in 2019.

This is primarily due to the income tax charged in 2020, which jumped by nearly 139 percent when compared to 2019, from 1.72 billion charged in 2019 to 4.11 billion charged in 2020.

In 2020, overall comprehensive income was negative by $934.8 million, compared to a gain of $2.62 billion in 2019. This was mostly due to a loss on re-measurement of defined benefit commitments of $2.42 billion. This line item was worth 201.6 million in 2019. In 2020, NNPC retail’s earnings per share will be negative 9.35.
