SAO PAULO, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultrapar Participacoes S.A. (BM&FBOVESPA: UGPA3 / NYSE: UGP), a company engaged in fuel distribution (Ultragaz/Ipiranga), specialty chemicals (Oxiteno) and storage for liquid bulk (Ultracargo), hereby reports its results for the fourth quarter and the year 2012.
We present in 4Q12 one more quarter of positive results progression, with 32% and 36% growth in EBITDA and net income, respectively. We closed 2012 achieving significant growth and record levels of results, even in a more challenging macroeconomic environment.
"With great enthusiasm I assume the position of CEO of Ultrapar, a sound company that has presented sustained growth over its 75 years through different political and economic scenarios in Brazil. In 2012 it was no different: we closed the year with significant earnings growth, despite the lower economic growth. It was also a year of important achievements, conclusion of investments and recognitions. Looking to the future, we have businesses that present several growth opportunities, with quality and profitability, and I am confident that we will continue the path of value creation."
