The reduction of productive supply in 2013 is due to lower electricity consumption by large industrial consumers in the Lipetsk and Tambov regions. Despite this it is planned to reduce electricity losses by 130 million kWh thanks to the implementation of the program «Energy saving and energy efficiency».
The revenue for 2013 is planned in the amount of 90,417 million rubles, which is 21,020 million rubles or 30.3% higher than the actual one in 2012. The main reason for the revenue growth is taking over the functions of a supplier of last resort to perform the features of a power retailer by IDGC of Centre’s branches. EBITDA is planned at 2,571 million rubles higher than the actual value in 2012, an increase of 21.0%. The main contribution to the planned increase in EBITDA is as a result of the depreciation growth due to the implementation of the investment program.
The adjusted Investment program of IDGC of Centre for 2013 has been approved in the amount of 14,158 million rubles. Total for the period up to 2018 capital investments in the amount of 89,733 million rubles will be disbursed. The main reason for the adjustment of the investment program was taking into account the limitation of growth of tariff rates starting from 2014.
