The privately held trading house—which mainly deals in metals and oil—had a mixed year, as revenue climbed by about one-third but profits remained essentially flat. The stall in profit growth was largely due to losses in a bumpy oil market, the company said. By contrast, the metals business was boosted by rising prices of industrial staples such as zinc and lead. In December, Trafigura faced unwelcome scrutiny when it was drawn into an expanding corruption probe by authorities in Brazil into past dealings between commodities traders and the Brazilian state oil company, Petrobras. In a statement, Trafigura said that it takes the allegations seriously, that current management had no knowledge of improper activity, and that it has a zero tolerance policy on bribery and corruption.
