Key factors contributing to changes in financial performance:


- growth in the main revenue element - electricity transportation by 10.3 billion rubles on the account of tariff indexation.

- growing electricity and capacity sales by 8.1 billion rubles on the account of sales volume increase due to obtaining the status of guaranteeing supplier from some subsidiaries and dependent companies.

- operating expenses growth by 13.8 billion rubles was affected mostly by non-controllable expenses dynamics:

1.   electricity purchase to compensate losses, resulting from weighted average price growth for purchased electricity, alongside with losses reduction;

2.   services of other territorial network organizations, on the back of growing tariffs;

3.   purchase of electricity for sale, resulting from guaranteeing supplier status obtainment, herewith these costs are compensated by growth of revenue from electricity sales;

4.   amortization, resulting from commissioning of PP&E under the investment programm.

By the end of 6M 2019, Group assets grew by 3.5%, up to 2,607.7 billion rubles (2,518.6 billion rubles as of December 31, 2018), mainly on the back of growing PP&E, resulting from new capacity commissioned under the investment program, as well as growing right-of-use assets (considering IFRS 16 "Rent" application since January 1, 2019).

Pavel Grebtsov, acting in lieu of Deputy Director General for Economy and Finance, noted, that ROSSETI Group keeps demonstrating upward dynamics of profitability and financial stability highlights, along with unquestionable reliability of electricity transportation, quality and accessibility of electricity supply for consumers.
