Georgeta Corina Popescu, CEO Electrica S.A.:

The results recorded by Electrica Group in the first three months of this year are above expectations in the current context. Since the end of the first quarter, we have experienced a unique situation, but which we have succeeded to manage well, reacting promptly and facing unprecedented operational challenges.

In this difficult period of constraints and shortcomings, we tried to be alongside the communities where we operate, providing support to frontline medical units, in order to purchase equipment and hygienic and sanitary materials vital in managing the COVID-19 crisis.

Also during this period Electrica proved that it remains one of the pillars of the economy, a strategic Group, consisting of solid companies both from an operational point of view as well as from a financial one, with stable cash flow and potential of maintaining the assumed investments.

The increase by over 200 percent in EBITDA compared to the same period of 2019 is remarkable. Also, the growth in revenues and the expenses’ decrease are already the effects of the new strategy’s implementation, of the transformation and efficiency processes at Group level.

We are confident and maintain our ambitious investment plans for this year, of course, subject to the limitations imposed by the evolution of the epidemiological context and, implicitly, by the availability of contractors and partners involved in carrying out investment works or delivering equipment and materials.

Electrica remains one of the companies that investors continue to trust, observing in recent months even a consolidation of the positions held by institutional investors, those with a medium and long-term investment strategy in line with our plans. We are pleased by this, and it shows us that we are on the right track.”
