Statement of Corina Popescu, CEO of Electrica S.A.:

"The Romanian energy market recorded in the third quarter of this year,
similar to the European markets, a steep increase in energy prices, of about
50% compared to the same period of the previous year. The volatile environment
from this exceptional period is an important risk factor for both energy
suppliers and distributors. We have considered all potential scenarios, we
have identified solutions to ensure supply continuity and to strengthen our
resilience to future shocks, we have met our commitments to customers, but the
recording of significant additional costs, especially from the energy
acquisition, it also had an impact on the financial results for this quarter.

During this complicated period, we continued the efforts to implement
Electrica Group growth strategy, also by diversifying the financing sources
for the important projects in the renewable energy production sector, energy
efficiency projects, as well as investments in the distribution segment. We
continue to be focused on operational performance increasing and improvement
of the services provided, while optimizing costs.

In the current epidemiological situation, which prolongs not only the public
health crisis, more predictability is needed, at least for the next period,
especially in the complex mechanisms implementation context for offsetting
invoices and capping prices for certain customers categories, recently
