Moscow, March 11th, 2015 – Today, Enel Russia published its audited consolidated financial statements for 2014 in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
Operating revenues totaled 74,405 million RUR, up 7% or 4,683 million RUR compared to the figure posted in 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily caused by higher power prices on the day-ahead market. Revenues were also positively impacted by higher power sales volumes and higher revenues from capacity sales due to higher free capacity prices.
EBITDA stood at 18,408 million RUR, 1,561 million RUR above the figure posted in 2013 (+9%). The increase in EBITDA mainly resulted from better profitability of company operations on the day-ahead market thanks to optimization of fuel costs, as well as favorable fixed costs dynamics. EBITDA margin for 2014 was 24.7%, an increase by 0.6 percentage points on the previous year.
Net income for 2014 was 5,582 million RUR, growing by 643 million RUR or 13% versus 2013. Higher net income is mainly attributable to EBITDA growth, one-off bad debt provision booked in 2013 and lower financial charges in 2014 due to debt repayment, only partially offset by an impairment loss in the fourth quarter of the year related to some plant equipment.
Net debt as of December 31st, 2014 stood at 21,081 million RUR, growing by 1,759 million RUR or 9% versus year-end 2013. The increase in net debt in spite of a strong operating cash flow is attributable to the revaluation of EUR-denominated loans due to the depreciation of the Russian Rouble versus the European currency over the year.
“In 2014, Enel Russia continued to improve its financials thanks to the positive impact of the efficiency measures implemented. At the same time, we were able to hedge the potential negative effect of sharp rouble devaluation on Company earnings. Once again, full-year results underscore the soundness of our operational decisions whilst reinforcing further our already solid balance sheet”
