Due to the loss by Orlen Trading Switzerland (OTS) of PLN 1.6 billion in prepayments for undelivered crude oil, Orlen expects to adjust its annual results for 2023 by this amount – the company announced on Wednesday.

As stated, the adjustment to the subsidiary's result results mainly from the analysis of its ability to recover the funds it paid as prepayments for the purchase of crude oil and petroleum products.

“Due to the lack of deliveries of crude oil and petroleum products within the deadlines specified in the relevant contracts, the subsidiary (OTS – ed.) requested the return of prepayments. The prepayments were not returned within the stipulated deadlines, and the possibility of recovering the prepayments due was deemed unlikely by the subsidiary. Based on the information obtained, the subsidiary assessed that the above event requires an adjustment to its financial result for 2023,” it was written.

“In connection with the information received, Orlen SA expects to include in the consolidated financial statements of the Orlen Group for 2023 in the item of other operating costs an additional amount of approximately minus PLN 1.6 billion, mainly as a result of writing off assets due to advance payments for deliveries” – it was reported .
