The Company published its statements under RAS for 2011: key financial indicators showed an increase

11 March 2012

The Company’ s revenue over the same period last year grew by 12.7% to 68.1 billion rubles, including from electricity transmission — 65.7 billion rubles, from technological connection — about 1.7 billion rubles and other revenue — 780 million rubles. From the technological connection the revenue decreased by 22.7% due to the transition of all branches in 2011 to RAB-regulation.

The amount of electricity transmission[1],following the results of 2011, increased by 1.4% to 54.09 billion kWh, which is due to the growth of energy consumption in a number of branches of IDGC of Centre: in Belgorodenergo the growth of transmission was 4.4%, Lipetskenergo — 2.7% Kurskenergo — 2.6%, Orelenergo — 2.1%. This increase is associated with an increase in electricity consumption by large metallurgic companies.

Gross profit of IDGC of Centre for the period reached 12.6 billion rubles, which is 32.8% higher over the same period last year. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to 13.8 billion rubles, this is 25.5% higher over 2010. Net profit increased by 10.6% and the indicator reached 5.2 billion rubles.

The growth of the indicators is due to priority rates of the revenue growth over the cost growth, the growth of electricity consumption in the regions where the Company operates, the obtained effect of the costs management program in terms of reducing electric energy losses, the optimization of the personnel costs, reduced overheads and lower costs for the acquisition of production services.
