The Group’s net turnover in 2020 reached 190.5 million EUR, EBITDA amounted to 26.5 million EUR. The Group’s net profit for 2020 was 11.2 million EUR*.
The JSC “Latvijas Gāze” in 2020 continued to invest towards improving the effectiveness and efficiency of core business and customer care processes. In total the JSC “Latvijas gāze” invested approximately 1.2 million EUR in IT projects to ensure most efficient operations and services to customers. At the end of December 2020 JSC “Latvijas Gāze” made the final transition to a new billing system MECOMS and a new self-service portal.
