* Total profit without taking into account the impact of exchange rate differences.

As a result of financial and economic activities over the reporting period, the company received a profit of 17.8 billion tenge, while an actual loss for 2015 was (–77.8) billion tenge.

In 2015 foreign exchange losses in the amount of 106,9 bln. tenge pertaining to currency loans of the Head office (the Company) and “Moynak HPP” JSC, “Ekibastuz SDPP-2” JSC, “Bogatyr Komir” LLP were reflected in 2015 due to the decrease in the tenge exchange rate.

Compared to the result of 2015, without taking into account the impact of foreign exchange losses, the decrease was due to the reduction in operating profit of “SDPP-1” LLP resulted from a decrease in sales volumes and tariffs associated with economic downturn. In accordance with the approved Development Plan, profit in 2017 is planned at 10, 39 bln. tenge, in 2018 at 19.32 bln. tenge.

The Company’s Development Plan for 2017–2021 provides for the sale of the following assets – “Tegis Munay” LLP, “Mangyshlak Munay” LLP, “EKREC” JSC, “Shygysenergotrade” LLP, “MDPGC” LLP, “Aktobe CHP” JSC – in the forecast for 2017 they are referred to discontinued operations, and assets of “AZhC” JSC, “APP” JSC, “Almatyenergosbyt” LLP are expected to be sold in 2019.

EBITDA amounted to 71,6 billion tenge in 2016, while the fact in 2015 was 76,5 billion tenge. The decrease in sales volumes and tariffs has negatively affected the operating profit of “SDPP-1” LLP in 2016, which in turn affected the EBITDA. In the forecast for 2017, the indicator is adjusted to 74.1 billion tenge, the growth of which compared to 2016 is mainly due to the increase in electricity sales volumes of “ESDPP-1” LLP. It is planned to further increase “ESDPP-1” LLP sales volumes in the forecast for 201, owing to its export potential.

EBITDA margin also tends to slightly decrease by 2016 (39 %) and gradual adjustment in the future by years.

Electricity production volumes in 2016 have increased by 1 % comparedto the volume of 2015 (taking into account the volumes of “ZHSDPP” JSC). The main increase in volumes occurred as a result of electricity exports by “ESDPP-2” JSC to Russia in the amount of 1,859 mln. kWh, and also due to an increase in the output by 1,128 million kWh by Moynak and Kapchagay HPPs, “APP” JSC due to growth of water inflow.

OTHER PRODUCTION FIGURES

ICUF (Installed capacity utilization factor)

In 2016 the installed capacity across all energy producing plants was at the level of 2015 except for Aktobe CHP, the increase in installed capacity was due to the introduction of turbo generator No. 3.

The decrease in the ESDPP-1 ICUF is due to crisis phenomena in the economy of large industrial enterprises’ consumption, the purchase of electricity from lower-tariff energy sources (HPPs) due to the abnormal increase in water inflow in 2016.

Installed capacity (MW)

Despite the decrease in the ESDPP-1 ICUF owing to the operation of the power units in the optimal mode, a higher degree of HPH use resulted in the reduction of SCEF from 371 g / kWh to 370 g-kWh.

The growth of ICUF at ESDPP-2 is due to an increase in the sales of electricity for export. The SCEF decreased from 394 g / kWh to 393 g / kWh due to the growth of the ICUF.

The growth of APP ICUF is due to the increase in the output of Kapchagay HPP due to the increase in water inflow. The decrease in SCEF is due to the increase in the share of CHPP-2 in the generation of electricity by TPP which has lower specific fuel consumption for electricity sale.

The growth of Aktobe CHP ICUF occurred due to the input of the turbogenerator No. 3.

The increase in SCEF is associated with the operation of the turbogenerator No. 3 in the condensing mode.

The decrease in heat production volumes in 2016 by 2 % (by 108 thousand Gcal) was caused by reduction of the heating load due to the higher temperature of the ambient air compared to climatic temperatures.

Electricity transmission volumes amounted to 12,117.6 mln. kWh, with an insignificant increase to the level of 2015 volumes –12,113.6 mln. tenge (an increase by 4 mln. kWh).

Dynamics of changes in the heat production volumes, thous. Gcal

Losses in grids are reduced owing to implementation of activities on the modernization of grids and ASCAPC in AZhC and MDPGC by 0.8 % and 0.2 %, respectively. However, at the EC REC losses were increased by 0.7 % due to a decrease in transmission volumes by 56 million kWh. In general, the level of losses across all RECs is below the established standard of CRNM PC.

According to the results of 2016, the total length of power transmission lines was 69 203 km, which is by 0.4 % or 240 km higher than the same period.

Electricity transmission volumes (mln. kWh) and losses in grids (in %)

length of power transmissioni lines (km)

Mainly the increase in the length of the lines occurred owing to AZhC:

  • implementation of 2016 investment program
  • reconstruction of existing grids
  • acceptance of power grids of third party organizations to the balance of AZhC

The total volume of electricity sales by ESO for the reporting period amounted to 8,438 million kWh, which is almost at the level of 2015 (growth of 0.3 %).

Despite the increase in the number of consumers, the volume of consumption remains without significant changes for the following reasons:

      AES – in respect of industry category, the decline in 2016 compared with facts of 2015 was 2.7 % or 21.97 million kWh due to a slowdown in production growth in industries and service sector; an increase in the average monthly temperature and the transition of consumers to another power supply organization. This decrease is compensated by the increase in the category “population”, the actual increase in 2016 compared with 2015 was 1.4 % or 26.9 million kWh.

      ShET – The decrease in consumption occurred in respect of legal entities, mainly in the state-financed organizations and in construction area.

The net cost of as of year-end 2016 amounted to 136,127 mln. tenge, which is 6 % higher than the fact of 2015. However, the net cost excluding controlled expenses (depreciation and taxes) for 2016 amounted to 86,944 mln. tenge, a slight increase in comparison with last year by 1,172 mln. tenge or by 1 %.

The main changes occurred in the following types of expenditures:

Fuel, OL, energy:

The decrease in fuel costs is due to a decrease in production volumes of SDPP-1 by (–2,035) mln. tenge (or 16 % compared to the fact of 2015) due to a decrease in demand. Also, the decrease is due to the increase in ICB between AES and APP taking into account the growth in the output of APP owing to Kapchagay HPP (- KZT2,073 million). At the same time, the expenses for purchasing electricity from RES (+ 919) million tenge are growing. The increase in prices for gas, coal, transportation led to an increase in fuel costs for APP by (+ 1 015) million tenge.

Repairs:

Reduction of repair works in connection with conducted surveys on the actual need for repairs and, accordingly, a change in the schedule of repair work with a shift to the right (EGRES–1, APP).

Transmission and sale related services:

The increase in expenditures for KEGOC services is due to the annual increase in tariffs (transmission services tariff growth by 7 %, dispatching services tariff increase by 27 %), as well as an increase in the output of Kapchagay HPP of “APP” JSC due to the high water content of the water reservoir in 2016 (in the case of production at other CHP, KEGOC services are not added to an ultimate consumer).

Net cost structure by core business lines

Labor costs for production personnel:

The increase is due to annual indexation under the collective agreement of subsidiaries and affiliates.

Other production works, services andlease:

Increase in respect of the item “Maintenance of production equipment” is connected with conclusion of the agreement for SS–220/35 kV substation “WPP Ereymentau1” maintenance with “FWPP” LLP in 2016.

Other:

Increase in costs for raw materials and supplies (chemical agents and beaters) at “SDPP-1” LLP, due to replacement of materials on filters of the regenerator. Also in comparison with 2015 there was a rise in price of purchased services and materials.

Forecast for the future period: In the forecast for 2017, the cost of sales and services rendered increases by 20 943 mln. tenge (15 %). The main increase is associated with an increase in fuel costs, due to the increase in electricity production and the annual increase in prices for purchased fuel, depreciation due to assets upgrading and purchased electricity from renewable energy sources. And also growth is connected with an annual increase in staff salaries taking into account the inflation factor and an increase in prices for services rendered by third-party organizations. In the forecast for 2018, expenses for net cost are also increasing due to the above reasons.
