Tunisia : Income of over 1 Billion DT in 2007 and a decreasing RN .

After its failure to open to its strategic partner, the Tunisian State decided to liberate the capital of the national company for petrol distribution SNDP, at the Tunis Stock Market. We do not yet know officially what the amount of the float on the BVMT could be, but we think this will not exceed 20 % of the capital of this public company, whose capital exceeds 21,3 MDT. But, then how does the SNDP do?

Over 48 % market share.

Created in 1960 by the Italian group ENI, the Tunisian State buys three years later over 50 % of the capital and the rest in 1975. Two years later, it takes a new name and becomes the National Company for Petrol Distribution, to become in 2002 an SA. This enterprise

Through the development of its activities, AGIL S.A. ended in the first rank among the sector enterprises, with the sales volume as well as the importance of its turnover and the know-how of its human resources and it endeavours to keep this ranking by offering to its clients the best product and service quality», according to its presentation on its web site. It is everywhere through its 192 stations spread throughout Tunisia, its 54 port stations and its 6 air-port depots. 
The global market share of the enterprise is 48,70% of the fuel distribution market. In the aviation market it takes 60,51%, in the fuel market it takes 48,26%, 22,5 in the lubrificants and over 48 % in the gas distribution market.
