Ultrapar’s investment plan for 2021 totals R$ 1,891 million, an amount greater than that invested in 2019 and 2020.

The expansion portion, which represents around half of the investment plan, prioritizes the growth of the businesses through capacity expansion or efficiency and productivity gains, leading to better returns, in line with the Company's strategic planning. The main investments in expansion contemplated in the plan for 2021 are concentrated in Ipiranga, Ultracargo and Ultragaz.

Ipiranga’s expansion investments focus on (i) the expansion of the logistics infrastructure, with the construction of logistics facilities in Belém (PA), Cabedelo (PB), Vitória (ES) (concessions won in 2019) and Fortaleza (CE), (ii) the growth of the service stations network, through the addition of service stations with larger throughput, prioritizing volume growth, and (iii) the expansion of AmPm company-operated stores and new franchises.

Ultracargo’s expansion investments will be directed to the construction of the terminal in Vila do Conde (Belém, PA) and to the expansion of the Itaqui (MA) terminal, amounting to R$ 280 million, which will result in a 19% growth in the company’s current storage capacity.

Ultragaz will invest in expansion to build new bottling plants in Belém (PA) and Fortaleza (CE), amounting to about R$ 70 million in 2021, and to attract new clients mainly in the bulk segment.

 

Oxiteno and Extrafarma will focus their expansion investments in logistics optimization to increase productivity and in the growth of its digital platforms, respectively.

 

About half of the investment plan for 2021 will be directed to the sustaining of the businesses, including mainly investments in safety, maintenance of assets and market share, renovation and remodeling of points of sales, as well as investments in information technology.
