Update on the consequences of the Covid-19 sanitary crisis

The economic turmoil that follows from the current sanitary crisis results in a drop in power demand and significantly impacts many of the Group’s businesses, namely nuclear generation (which EDF indicates is currently under review and will be adjusted significantly below the initial assumption), new-build projects and services.

Consequently, the EDF Group withdraws all its financial targets for 2020, including the lower end of the EBITDA range of €17.5 billion, as well as for 2021.
