Preliminary financial data of Ignitis Group (hereinafter – the Group) for 6 months of 2021:
|Revenue||EUR 122.6 million||EUR 96.4 million||27.2 %|
|Adjusted EBITDA*||EUR 23.6 million||EUR 13.7 million||72.3 %|
January - June
|Revenue||EUR 738.1 million||EUR 590.9 million||24.9 %|
|Adjusted EBITDA*||EUR 168.2 million||EUR 129.0 million||30.4 %|
In January – June 2021, the Group generated revenue of EUR 738.1 million, which is 24.9 % more compared to a respective period of 2020 (EUR 590.9 million). The results were driven by higher electricity volumes generated by the CCGT unit of the Flexible Generation segment, caused by positive spark spread. Also, Group's revenue increased as a result of higher electricity and gas sales to business customers in the Customers & Solutions, as well as higher distributed volumes in the Networks segments. Both of these effects were mostly related to overall higher energy consumption compared to the same period in 2020, partly as a result of colder weather conditions in Q1 of 2021. Additionally, increase of revenue was caused by the start of operations of Kaunas and Vilnius CHP’s in August 2020 and March 2021, respectively.
The adjusted EBITDA in January – June 2021 was equal to EUR 168.2 million, i.e. higher by 30.4 % compared to a respective period of 2020 (EUR 129.0 million). Adjusted EBITDA results grew in all Group’s operating segments:
- Green Generation segment result grew due to start of operations of Kaunas and Vilnius CHP’s as well as improved result of Kaunas HPP due to higher electricity market price and higher produced volumes as a result of higher water level in Nemunas river;
- Changes in gas market prices had positive impact for Customers & Solutions segment result;
- Flexible Generation segment grew due to higher commercial activity result from CCGT unit due to positive spark spread;
- Networks segment result grew mostly due to higher distributed volumes as a result of overall higher energy consumption compared to respective period of 2020. This effect will level off over the course of the year as annual ROI and compensated D&A is fixed for the year, but allocated between the months based on distributed volumes.
*The Group’s preliminary (2021) and actual (2020) result of adjusted EBITDA is presented after the adjustments made by the management by eliminating the impact of one-off factors.
