Anwim appoints BNP Paribas to explore strategic options

Anwim was founded in 1992 and initially it dealt solely with fuel wholesale. In 2009 the company launched retail operations and created an independent nationwide chain of petrol stations. Polish Enterprise Fund VIII, a private equity fund managed by Enterprise Investors, acquired a significant minority stake in Anwim in 2018. At the time the company had just over 180 fuel stations and EUR 730 million in annual revenues. Two years later – in 2020 – the fund increased its stake to majority position. Today Anwim, which operates over 400 service stations, is jointly owned by PEF VIII and minority shareholders, among whom are the company founders. Revenues last year approached EUR 2.8 billion.

MOYA is the largest independent chain of filling stations and the network is growing rapidly. MOYA stations are present in all Poland’s voivodeships, with outlets along the main transit routes and local roads as well as in towns and cities. In addition to fuel sales, the chain’s broad offer includes well-stocked convenience stores, Caffe MOYA outlets with food on the go, as well as other services. MOYA has also been growing quickly in the fleet segment, which was boosted by the company’s expansion into the international fleet card market in 2022 when it acquired The Fuel Company, TFC fleet card’s Dutch operator.
