    Michael, just looking for your opinion... For a partly-owned state company, GOIL appears to demonstrate strong performance and seems to be well managed. Do you have any thoughts on the long-term potential of the company? Thanks! (Great job on the website)

      In a year when fuel prices took a downward trend, it's remarkable that GOIL recorded 10.4% after-tax profit (GHS 22.21m) for the 2015 fiscal year. In fact, the company's fuel sales exceeded their own projections by ~20% and currently holds 17% market share of the oil marketing industry among 80+ competitors. So, yes, the company is doing well.

      But like most other big corporations, one simply cannot expect them to grow in an upsurge fashion because they hardly innovate. For instance, the company's current focus is on forming joint-venture partnerships and taking over distressed competitor stations and acquiring new ones. Then what? That's all? Indeed, GOIL is in good shape, and will continue its steady growth for the foreseeable future, but I don't expect a sharp one.
