Financial Outlook

To bolster shareholder value, Galp will implement a buyback program of €350 million and increase its dividend for 2023 by 4% to €0.54 per share.

Fourth-Quarter Performance

In the fourth quarter of last year, Galp recorded a net profit of €336 million, a decline from the €455 million reported in the same period of 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter reached €720 million, down from €951 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBIT fell to €411 million from €475 million.

Factors Impacting Results

Galp acknowledged that while its upstream and midstream activities performed well during the quarter, limited refining operations due to renovations at its Sines site adversely affected results. The renovations were aimed at producing cleaner energy.

At 0829 GMT, Galp’s shares were down 1.5% to €14.17.
