RusHydro announces first quarter 2021 RAS results

April 28, 2021. Moscow, Russia. PJSC RusHydro (MOEX, LSE: HYDR; OTCQX: RSHYY) announces non-consolidated financial results under Russian accounting standards (RAS) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Key highlights:

Despite the insignificant decrease in net profit and EBITDA as compared to record-high results of the prior year, 1Q EBITDA was 17% above the last five-year average, while net profit came in at the average of the last five years.

First quarter financial results only further supported sustainability of the company's business model - decrease in output  was compensated by sport market price increase aided by growth of DPM payments.

According to the Resolution of the Russian Government No. 1614-r and No. 1615-r of 28 July 2017, PJSC RusHydro was appointed as the recipient of a premium to the price for capacity provided by the Company in the price zones of the wholesale market under CCS agreements. The premium to the price for capacity is set in order to achieve the basic level of rates (tariffs) for electricity (capacity) planned for the next regulation period in the Far East constituent regions. The Company translates the collected amounts of margin in the form of free-of-charge targeted contributions to the budgets of the respective regions. The Group's companies being guaranteeing suppliers will receive compensation for the shortage of income related to the reduction of rates, through subsidies from the Far East constituent regions.

** EBITDA calculated as gross profit before depreciation.
