Revenue from sales

The Group’s total consolidated sales revenue in January-June 2017 was equal to EUR 87 million, 5.7 per cent more than in the first half of 2016. Total revenue increased thanks to higher amounts of electricity traded and favorable meteorological conditions, which positively influenced electricity generation and sales from the wind park owned by the Group. The rise in the amount of electricity traded was mainly influenced by increased sales on the Lithuanian market and at the Latvian subsidiary, a result of higher number of contracts signed with clients on these markets.

The increase in sales revenues came on the back of higher trade volumes, but the average price of electricity sold was lower at the same time. As a result, the cost of electricity sold outpaced the increase in total revenues. Group’s cost of sales in January-June of 2017 amounted to EUR 78 million, 8.2 per cent more than during the first six months of 2016. The increase was a result of higher volumes of electricity traded and stable prices of electricity purchased.

Earnings

Gross profit of the Group in January-June of 2017 amounted to EUR 9.5 million versus EUR 10.8 mln in H1 2016, while the gross profit margin decreased to 10.89 per cent (12.99 per cent a year ago).

Group’s operating profit over the same period reached EUR 5.9 million versus EUR 7.2 mln a year earlier, with the operating profit margin decreasing to 6.75 per cent from 8.76 per cent. In segment breakdown, the power generation segment increased its contribution to Group operating profit to nearly 17% from just 4% a year before thanks to favorable meteorological conditions at the Vydmantai wind power plant and despite accounting for just 3% of the Group’s top line.
