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

"In the context of profound and fast transformations in the energy market, one dominated by unpredictability, energy trading prices have risen significantly in the last period, reaching record levels even in the Romanian market. This evolution, difficult to anticipate, determined by factors external to the company, generated a significant increase in the electricity purchase costs. Despite our risk management policies, part of the effect was also felt on the financial results for first half of the year.

This effect is also highlighted by the comparison with the performance recorded in 2020 on the supply segment, an exceptional one, which also came from the favorable effect of the recoveries related to the previous years. 

However, we are a solid company and we have taken responsibility towards our customers, making every effort to maintain a balance, including by costs optimization for the end-customer, even in this unfavorable context.

Throughout this period, we focused our efforts on continuing to make major investments, in the area of production from renewable sources, on operational efficiency, on improving services offered, but also on diversifying the business through offers and services customized to customer needs. All these measures will allow the sustainable development of the Group in the directions pursued by the approved strategy, with beneficial effects on the company's profitability".
