The revenue from electricity transmission services for 1Q 2019 decreased by 1,6%, this decrease is mainly due to both partial transfer of consumer load to FGC UES’s grids and own generation, as well as to a decrease in electricity consumption of the industrial and fuel and energy complex in the regions of operations.

The revenue from grid connection services for 1Q 2019 was 0,3 bln RUB and remained at the last year’s level.

The main reason for the growth of other revenues by 50.0% compared to the same period last year is an increase in the volume of work performed in such areas as “Reconstruction of power grid facilities in the interests of customers”, “Provision of technical resources” and “Grid connection support”.

The prime cost for 1Q 2019 increased by 2,3% and amounted to 22,1 bln RUB. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) reached 5,3 bln RUB, relative to the same period last year it decreased by 10,2%, at the same time, its margin was 21,1%. The net profit for 1Q 2019 was 1,1 bln RUB, which is 35,3% lower than last year. The decrease in the financial result is due to a significant decrease compared to the last year’s level of sales of electricity transmission services while maintaining the level of fixed costs for maintenance of power grid facilities.

The volume of electricity transmission services was 12,5 billion kWh, compared to the same period last year, there was a decrease in the volume by 3,8%, which was a result of reduced consumption by PJSC “NLMK”, OJSC “Slavneft-YANOS”, “Gazpromtransgaz Ukhta” LLC. The increase in electricity losses by 0,02 p.p. to 12,58% is associated with integration of grids of the city Nelidovo (Tver region) from April 2018.
