We’ve achieved a lot since 2011 and with over 100 years of the Shell brand in Africa we’re also proud of our heritage. Our vision is to become the most respected energy business in Africa.
Here are some highlights of our journey so far.
1st December 2011
Vivo Energy was established with Cape Verde, Senegal, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, and Tunisia the first countries to join.
We expanded the group with Burkina, Cote D’Ivoire and Guinea (March), Botswana and Namibia (October) and Kenya (November) joining.
We completed the current group with Uganda (February) and Ghana (August) taking us up to 15 markets across Africa.
We began our Retail network expansion programme, adding over 100 service stations in the year.
We launched our initiative to re-design and expand our convenience retail and food offer across our network to ensure our sites meet our customer needs and offer much more than just fuel.
We invested further in our retail network, signing partnerships with international partners such as Burger King and KFC and add innovative new offers for our customers such as our first loyalty programme in Mauritius.
We completed our 15th differentiated fuel launch in 3 years (bringing V-Power to Morocco and Tunisia) and signed a new agreement with Shell to secure the brand for a further 15 years.
We acquired a stake in Shell & Vivo Lubricants (SVL), so that it is jointly owned by Vivo Energy (50%) and Shell (50%). SVL is the company that sources, blends and manufactures Shell Lubricants in Africa.
We entered into a transaction with Engen Holdings to add a number of new markets to Vivo Energy’s network subject to regulatory approvals.
We completed an initial public offering (IPO) on the London Stock Exchange with a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. This was the largest African IPO on the London Stock Exchange in over a decade.
We restructured the transaction with Engen Holdings in order to add operations in eight new countries and over 225 Engen-branded service stations to Vivo Energy's network from 1st March 2019. On completion of the transaction, Vivo Energy’s footprint would expand to 23 countries and over 2,000 retail sites.
