Moscow, March 16th, 2022 – PJSC Enel Russia publishes its audited consolidated financial results for 2021 in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

  • Revenues showed strongly positive dynamics impacted by two important trends mentioned below:

    - On a positive side, they were boosted by higher volumes of electricity sales and favorable market prices. Increased electricity sales were mostly driven by growing demand in the energy system compared to last year, mainly caused by favorable weather conditions and general economic growth in Russia over 2021. Additionally, positive electricity demand dynamics triggered persistent growth of market electricity (DAM) prices in European Russia and the Urals (the first price zone) throughout the whole period, and which was further positively affected by the annual indexation of regulated tariffs and free capacity (KOM) prices for 2021.
    - On a negative side, they were undermined by lower capacity sales revenues, which were mostly caused by the expiration of thermal CSAs on CCGT units at Nevinnomysskaya GRES and Sredneuralskaya GRES in the end of 2020. However, this was partly offset by the start of renewable CSA sales related to the 90 MW wind farm in Azov following its launch in 2021.

  • EBITDA decreased by 12.9%, a drop caused by mixed dynamics of our revenue streams (capacity and electricity sales). More specifically, capacity sales revenues fell by 28.6% YoY to Rub 10.2 Bn due to the change in the CSAs perimeter. At the same time, electricity sales revenues increased by 29.8% YoY to Rub 34.2 Bn reflecting the growth in both volumes and DAM prices. However, larger electricity revenues were partially offset by proportionally higher fuel costs, which grew by 25% YoY to Rub 30 Bn. Last but not least, the Company’s management achieved substantial progress in the sale of Power Train equipment: sale-purchase agreement was signed, both deliveries and payments under this agreement started in 2021. This, alongside with continued actions targeting fixed cost optimization reinforced the EBITDA figure.

  • Reported EBIT underperformed the EBITDA dynamics, and was influenced by both operating and one-off items. First, it was negatively impacted by increased depreciation and amortization expenses compared to previous year, due to the start of commercial operation of Azov wind farm. Second, a certain increase in impairments YoY in relation to construction in progress was recorded, which altogether resulted in a 37.5% decrease of EBIT figure for 2021.

  • Ordinary EBIT, net of the impairments and provisions in respect of construction in progress, generally reflected the EBITDA dynamics YoY.

  • Ordinary net income overperformed the dynamics of the ordinary EBIT figure and decreased by 12.5%. Mostly it was positively driven by a 78% decrease in net financial charges, thanks to favorable foreign exchange dynamics and RUB appreciation during 2021, compared to previous year, when a certain negative exchange rate differences was recorded.

  • Net debt showed an expected growth from Rub 13.7 Bn as of year-end of 2020, to Rub 26.0 Bn as of year-end of 2021, driven by continued investments in Enel Russia renewables and modernization projects.
