World Fuel Services


Aviation, marine, and land fuel provider World Fuel Services spent 2018 sailing away from stormy weather. The oil supply glut of 2014 eased, with prices beginning to recover. Meanwhile, a string of recent acquisitions and the appointment of former IBM CIO Jeff Smith as COO shored up the company’s strategic bulwarks. Revenue rose 18% to $39.8 billion, and the company logged $128 million in net income, compared with a $170.3 million net loss in 2017. The turnaround was mainly due to record aviation fuel results and a rebound in profitability for its marine segment. Setting course for 2019, World Fuel paid down $225.5 million in long-term debt. U.S. sanctions on Iran’s oil exports should also bring smoother waters.
