Elering’s operating income grew by 23 per cent or 5.4 million euros compared to the third quarter of 2017. Of this, 2.8 million euros was due to balancing service and 1.9 million euros more revenue was received from electricity transit.

As to operating expenses, costs related to provision of balancing service saw the most growth – by a total of 3.0 million euros. Another key reason for growth of income was the steep rise in the electricity prices on the exchange. Loss electricity is purchased from the power exchange and its price has risen more than 40 per cent over the year, causing expenses related to electricity losses to rise by 1.4 million euros. Miscellaneous operating expenses dropped by 0.8 million euros. Financial costs dropped by 1.8 million euros in connection with the successfully refinanced Eurobond.

Q3 concluded with a 0.6 million euro loss, which is 3.2 million euros less than in the same quarter in the previous year. The losses in Q2 and Q3 were caused by the typical seasonal character of electricity and gas transmission. In the summer quarters, energy consumption is much lower, plus electricity transmission fees are lower than in the winter period.

Elering’s cash flows from operating activity in Q3 were -11.9 million euros, of which income tax on dividend made up 5.0 million euros. A total of 24.6 million euros was invested into non-current assets, while 2.0 million euros came in from cross-border auctions of transmission capacity.

A total of 225 million euros in bonds was redeemed and a total of 2.6 million euros in amortized loans were repaid in Q3.

Elering’s asset volume as of the end of the quarter was 943.7 million euros and equity stood at 372.7 million euros.
