    The net profit of the twenty largest State Treasury’s companies has surpassed the achievements of the corresponding period of 2020, Businessinsider. com reported on Friday (16 Oct). Companies led by Orlen, KGHM, and PGE earned a total of PLN 11.1 billion. That’s 82 per cent more than last year!

    “PLN 15.4 billion – this is how much the 20 largest public companies and 20 largest private companies on the Warsaw Stock Exchange earned in net profit in the second quarter of 2021,” reports Businessinsider noting that this is a record.


    The hits among State Treasury’s companies when it comes to the biggest increase in profits are:

    – KGHM – net profit of PLN 2,359 million (PLN 2,349 million y/y),

    – Lotos – net profit PLN 1,058 million (PLN 1,135 million y/y).


    The biggest surprise was KGHM. Net profit in Q2 2021 was PLN 2.36 billion. This is the third-best result in history.
