MAIN FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS (millions of RUB)
|Net debt at the end f the period||17,889||20,348||-12.1%|
“Last year, our company posted a record in net income since its listing in 2005. This result was achieved through the contribution of higher capacity payments as well as managerial actions, which were able to offset the negative impact of overcapacity affecting our operational results and electricity pricing. This positive set of results allows Enel Russia to stand out in the Russian power utility sector, meeting all of its investment targets - including in renewables development - whilst also paying an attractive dividend to shareholders”
Moscow, March 15th, 2018 – PJSC Enel Russia has published its audited consolidated financial statements for 2017 in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
Revenues increased, mainly due to:
- higher DPM revenues received by both CCGT units that entered their seventh year of operation (as provided for by the DPM pricing methodology approved by the government);
- increased volume of delivered capacity, explained by higher capacity sales from Nevinnomysskaya CCGT (as the unit was in outage at the beginning of 2016), as well as lower unplanned outages at the majority of other facilities;
- higher revenues from regulated power and capacity sales due to annual tariffs increase.
This increase in revenues offset the lower production of conventional gas units that was mainly attributable to the System Operator’s lower use of the equipment due to overcapacity in the Central and Urals regions.
EBITDA grew significantly, largely due to higher revenues additionally supported by the decrease in 2 PJSC Enel Russia – Pavlovskaya 7, bld. 1, Moscow, Russia, 115 093 fixed costs. This cost decrease was mainly attributable to lower costs related to property tax, lower use of raw materials and supplies, as well as a long-term personnel cost optimisation programme.
The increase in EBIT reflected EBITDA growth.
Net income reflected EBIT growth, additionally supported by lower net financial charges that were mainly attributable to:
- optimisation of the company’s debt portfolio structure, including a reduced exposure to euro/rouble exchange rate fluctuations;
- decreased interest expenses as a result of the lower average debt level compared with 2016 and downward trend of the key rate in Russia;
- the recording in the first quarter of 2016 of a one-off accounting adjustment associated with the early repayment of a loan from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Net debt at the end of the reporting period decreased on the figure posted as of December 31st, 2016, mainly due to solid operating cash flow compensating the payments made over the period.
