The breakneck pace of DCC's (LON:DCC) acquisition programme shows no let up. At $293m, the purchase of ExxonMobil’s Norwegian petrol station network is its biggest yet. That suggests its strategy of picking up ancillary energy assets is taking on more urgency as oil prices rise. To be sure, scope to buy further high-quality assets in the space remains, as energy producers and less well-positioned services groups continue adjusting to the lower-cost environment.

However, we expect investors to increasingly query DCC’s RoIC assumptions as oil industry conditions recover, particularly given the group’s total debt as a proportion of underlying earnings is about 40% higher than that of its closest support rivals. For now though, investors remain on side in view of DCC’s growing niche in energy services among UK-listed support groups, synergies and benign financing costs (a 70 basis points advantage over rivals, according to Reuters data).
