MFT Energy posts record financial results for 2020

MFT Energy Leadership

MFT Energy exceeded expectations in 2020 and continues a fast-growing growth curve towards a stock exchange listing in 2023. Revenues are boosted by 297% to €461 million, achieving a profit before interest and tax of €7.8 million – an increase of 253%. Record financial performance along with significant investments across the entire business platform ensures that MFT Energy is ready to accelerate its global growth ambition.

“We have achieved a very satisfying result in 2020, especially in light of the worldwide impact of COVID-19. The circumstances have demanded an extreme willingness to adapt, requiring completely new ways of working amid intense unpredictability. I am extremely pleased by how we have overcome these upheavals. The entire organization has shown enormous flexibility and considerable grit in a challenging time. We were able to focus on our existing markets, yet still expand into new territories and successfully set up new trading desks in the US and in Singapore.”

Hiring talent and investing in the business platform

2020 saw the company establish new partnerships and increase its headcount by 27. To build a solid base from which to scale for planned growth, MFT Energy also invested heavily across the business platform – strengthening risk management capabilities, IT systems and analytical tools in particular.

MFT Energy also strengthened its management team in 2020, with Torben Nordal Clausen coming in as CEO in May. More recently, the company announced the appointment of Christian Pape as new Chief Financial Officer, effective 1 May 2021.

“I am most proud that we managed to improve the bottom line, continue hiring talent and invest in our business platform simultaneously. In line with our business strategy, 2020 was slated as a year for significant investment in making our foundations as safe and robust as possible. We have already experienced how beneficial these investments have been for our business. Now we have all the prerequisites in place to accelerate our growth and position ourselves as a leading global player in energy trading.”
