Elering’s 2020 operating profit remains stable excluding influence of 2019 extraordinary income

Elering’s total revenues for Q1 of 2020 was 43.0 million euros and the company’s net profit totalled 17.6 million euros.

Compared to 2019, the company’s total revenues decreased by 13.8 million euros. The main reason for the decrease however was the extraordinary income of 10.9 million euros received in Q1 of 2019 as a result of the resolution of an arbitration dispute in Elering’s favour.

The company’s sales revenues fell by 7.7% or 3.5 million euros. The drop in electricity transmission volumes due to warm weather was compensated by greater revenue from gas transmission. The greatest decline was related to balancing energy volumes totalling 2.2 million euros, but since expenses related to energy markets declined by close to the same amount, it did not affect the company’s profit. Not including the extraordinary income, the decrease in income not related to the energy markets was 2.2% or 842 thousand euros.

Operating expenses fell by 3.2 million euros. The main decrease of 2.2 million euros was related to a decrease in balancing energy volumes. The biggest influence on operating expenses was related to the significantly lower costs of losses - 2.8 million euros. The saving was mainly stemmed from cheaper electricity prices.

Overall, Elering earned 18.2 million euros in operating profit, which, when the 2019 extraordinary income is excluded, was at a level comparable to the previous period.

Elering’s cash flow from operating activity in Q1 totalled 23.1 million euros. Elering invested 35.4 million euros into non-current assets and 3.4 million euros came in as income from auctioning off cross-border transmission capacity. The company repaid 2.6 million euros in previously taken loans.

The volume of Elering’s assets as of the end of March was 1,024.5 million euros and equity capital stood at 405.9 million euros.
