Corina Popescu, CEO Electrica SA: ” The financial results of Electrica Group in the first nine months of this year are truly remarkable: a net profit increase of 230% compared to the same period of last year and EBITDA by 73%. In these nine months, we have not just reached, but we have already exceeded by 24% the net profit target for 2018.

On the supply segment we have managed to identify a balance between profitability and market share. This year, some stabilization of the energy purchase prices was noticeable, after we experienced the major imbalances in the energy market in the past year, but in the last period we notice a significant upward trend. There are still elements that point the need to improve legislation and to correct some market behaviors.

This year we continue our very ambitious investment program in our distribution networks, as well as the efforts to optimize and streamline our business, our priority being to improve the services that our 3.7 million customers benefit from, as well as ensuring sustainable financial results for our shareholders.”
