The Company’s revenue for the first 9 months of 2012 decreased by 1.2% year-on-year to RUR 40,984.1 million. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to the following:

— an 8.5% reduction in the average electricity sales tariff in the wholesale electricity and capacity market because of a fall in prices in the day-ahead market and the balancing market: RUR 763.4 per MWh for the first 9 months of 2012 against RUR 834.0 per MWh for the first 9 months of 2011;

— a decline in the amount of capacity provided in forced mode since the beginning of 2012: at the end of the first 9 months of 2011, forced-mode generation accounted for 14.7% of the average monthly capacity sales; the figure for the first 9 months of 2012 was 0.1%;

— a drop in electricity exports caused by a slump in prices in the NordPool market: 539.8 million kWh for the first 9 months of 2012 against 993.4 million kWh for the first 9 months of 2011.

Revenue from electricity sales amounted to RUR 19,409.9 million, down 7.1% year-on-year. Receipts from electricity sales decreased by 1.4% in the day-ahead market and by 57.8% in the balancing market. However, an increase in the amount of electricity committed under regulated contracts and a rise in tariffs helped receipts grow by 37.7%.

With new combined cycle power plants coming on-stream, the company increased its capacity sales revenue by 17.8% to RUR 7,790.2 million. Capacity sales under Capacity Delivery Agreements doubled year-on-year. A greater amount of capacity that passed through the Competitive Capacity Procedure (CCP) in 2012 and an adjustment of the price limit on July 1, 2012 lead to a 29.1% jump in CCP capacity sales revenue for the first 9 months of 2012.
Heat sales revenue fell by 1.5% to RUR 13,613.1 million. Other sales totaled RUR 170.9 million.

Cost of production rose by 3.0% to RUR 38,515.5 million. As had been expected, this change in cost of production in the first 9 months of 2012 was caused by an increase in fuel costs and the depreciation cost of new equipment.

The Company’s gross profit for the first 9 months of 2012 was RUR 2,468.6 million. Net profit for the reported period of this year dropped by 33.1% compared with the same period last year to RUR 1,951.4 million.
