Key events in H1 2017:
  • In accordance with the approved tariff decision for Federal Grid Company (Federal Antimonopoly Service order № 1892/16 dated 27.12.2016), starting from 1 July 2017, the Federal Grid Company tariff for electricity transmission on the UNEG was increased by 5.5% in relation to the tariff level that was in effect until 30 June 2017.
  • In the first quarter of 2017, Moody's changed its outlook for Federal Grid Company’s Ba1 rating to stable from negative; Standard & Poor’s changed its outlook on the Company’s BB+ rating to positive from stable. The outlooks were revised following similar actions with respect to the Russian Federation’s sovereign rating.
  • In June 2017, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders approved dividends for FY 2016 in the amount of RUB 18.2 billion and for the first quarter of 2017 in the amount of RUB 1.42 billion.

Financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2017

In the first half of 2017 the Group's total profit for the period amounted to RUB 24.9 billion, which represents a year-on-year decrease of RUB 20.0 billion. This result was primarily due to the Group's recognition in the reporting period of a loss of RUB 12.3 billion related to the regain of control over OJSC Nurenergo (on 27 January 2017, a cassation court reversed the bankruptcy of Nurenergo and sent the case for retrial in the court of first instance), as well as the recognition in H1 2016 of income from the loss of control of Nurenergo in the amount of RUB 11.8 billion. At the same time, adjusted profit (excluding the effects of the loss / regain of control over Nurenergo) amounted to RUB 37.6 billion, up by 9.6% year-on-year.

The Group's revenue amounted to RUB 101.6 billion, driven by:
- electricity transmission services amounted to RUB 90.7 billion, an increase of 9.8% (RUB 8.1 billion) year-on-year, even though tariffs rose by just 7.5% from 1 July 2016, thanks to higher volumes for direct customers;
- Revenue from connection services amounted to RUB 1.7 billion, down by 34.6% (RUB 0.9 billion) year-on-year due to the service schedule, which depends on customer orders;
- revenue from services rendered under general contractor agreements of Federal Grid Company subsidiaries was RUB 3.8 billion, a decrease of more than 3x (RUB 8.7 billion) year-on-year, due to the completion of major projects in previous reporting periods;
- revenue from electricity sales amounted to RUB 4.0 billion, a decline of more than 3x (RUB 7.8 billion) in connection with the termination of electricity sales by one of Federal Grid Company’s subsidiaries.

Total operating expenses70.4100%63.8100%(9.4%)

At the end of the reporting period, the Group's above-mentioned operating expenses amounted to RUB 63.8 billion, a decrease of 9.4% year-on-year.

Several expense line items increased due to higher allowances for depreciation of fixed assets and growth in tax payments in connection with the changes in legislation gradually abolishing property tax exemptions for electricity grid infrastructure.

Expenditures on materials, repairs and technical maintenance grew nearly 25% and amounted to RUB 1.6 billion, which is explained by preparation of electricity grid facilities for the 2017/2018 autumn/winter season and the necessity to fully complete the work by October 1st.

During the reporting period electricity transit costs decreased nearly 60%, due to a lower exchange rate for the Kazakh tenge and reduced electricity transmission through other countries.

At the same time, it is important to note the steady reduction of controllable expenses, including:
  • despite having an increased amount of equipment to service, personnel costs and related taxes were reduced by 1.5% through headcount optimisation;
  • reduced expenses (39%) for buying electricity for own operational needs due to the cease of electricity sales at one of the Group’s subsidiaries.

Financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2017

In the first half of 2017 the Group's total profit for the period amounted to RUB 24.9 billion, which represents a year-on-year decrease of RUB 20.0 billion. This result was primarily due to the Group's recognition in the reporting period of a loss of RUB 12.3 billion related to the regain of control over OJSC Nurenergo (on 27 January 2017, a cassation court reversed the bankruptcy of Nurenergo and sent the case for retrial in the court of first instance), as well as the recognition in H1 2016 of income from the loss of control of Nurenergo in the amount of RUB 11.8 billion. At the same time, adjusted profit (excluding the effects of the loss / regain of control over Nurenergo) amounted to RUB 37.6 billion, up by 9.6% year-on-year.

The Group's revenue amounted to RUB 101.6 billion, driven by:
- electricity transmission services amounted to RUB 90.7 billion, an increase of 9.8% (RUB 8.1 billion) year-on-year, even though tariffs rose by just 7.5% from 1 July 2016, thanks to higher volumes for direct customers;
- Revenue from connection services amounted to RUB 1.7 billion, down by 34.6% (RUB 0.9 billion) year-on-year due to the service schedule, which depends on customer orders;
- revenue from services rendered under general contractor agreements of Federal Grid Company subsidiaries was RUB 3.8 billion, a decrease of more than 3x (RUB 8.7 billion) year-on-year, due to the completion of major projects in previous reporting periods;
- revenue from electricity sales amounted to RUB 4.0 billion, a decline of more than 3x (RUB 7.8 billion) in connection with the termination of electricity sales by one of Federal Grid Company’s subsidiaries.

At the end of the reporting period, the Group's above-mentioned operating expenses amounted to RUB 63.8 billion, a decrease of 9.4% year-on-year.

Several expense line items increased due to higher allowances for depreciation of fixed assets and growth in tax payments in connection with the changes in legislation gradually abolishing property tax exemptions for electricity grid infrastructure.

Expenditures on materials, repairs and technical maintenance grew nearly 25% and amounted to RUB 1.6 billion, which is explained by preparation of electricity grid facilities for the 2017/2018 autumn/winter season and the necessity to fully complete the work by October 1st.

During the reporting period electricity transit costs decreased nearly 60%, due to a lower exchange rate for the Kazakh tenge and reduced electricity transmission through other countries.

At the same time, it is important to note the steady reduction of controllable expenses, including:
  • despite having an increased amount of equipment to service, personnel costs and related taxes were reduced by 1.5% through headcount optimisation;
  • reduced expenses (39%) for buying electricity for own operational needs due to the cease of electricity sales at one of the Group’s subsidiaries.
