Some 99.8 per cent of Caltex Australia’s shareholders have supported a resolution to change its name to Ampol. The company aims to complete the rebranding of its petrol stations by the end of 2022. Caltex’s interim CEO Matt Halliday has noted the impact of coronavirus-induced travel restrictions; he says that convenience retail fuel volumes fell 16 per cent year-on-year in the 12 months to April, while demand for jet fuel has fallen by up to 90 per cent. Caltex is still looking to sell a 49 per cent stake in a portfolio of petrol stations, via an IPO or a trade sale.
