Impact on the consolidated financial statements of the ENEA Group

In the Generation Area, the test results indicated an increase in the carrying amount of assets, which will be recognized by reversing the impairment losses posted in 2016 (as disclosed by the Issuer in Current Report No. 10/2016), in the Financial Statements of ENEA Wytwarzanie sp. z o.o. for the total amount of PLN 11.6 million. Moreover, in the Biogas Cash Generation Unit (CGU) of the Renewable Energy Sources Area, an impairment of assets in the amount of PLN 1.3 million was recognized.

With reference to Current Report No. 6/2020 of 14 February 2020, the Issuer hereby reports that on 31 March 2020 a decision was made to recognize, in the consolidated financial statements of the ENEA Group, an impairment loss on Polska Grupa Górnicza S.A. shares in the amount of PLN 52.7 million.

The recognition of these events will reduce profit before tax of the ENEA Group by PLN 62.8 million and the net profit for the reporting period of the ENEA Group by PLN 60.8 million, respectively, but will not affect the consolidated EBITDA.

At the same time, with reference to Current Report No. 9/2020 of 21 February 2020, the Issuer hereby reports that the consolidated results for 2019 will also be affected by the reversal of the provision for the dispute described in the said report in the amount of PLN 129 million. The effect of this accounting operation on the profit before tax will be PLN 129 million, on the net profit for the reporting period will be PLN 104.5 million and on the consolidated EBITDA will be PLN 129 million.

In aggregate, the operations described above will improve the ENEA Group's profit before tax by PLN 66.2 million and net profit for the reporting period by PLN 43.7 million, respectively, and the ENEA Group's consolidated EBITDA by PLN 129 million.

In connection with the completion of the said tests for impairment of the assets of ENEA Wytwarzanie sp. z o.o., a decision has been made to recognize, in the Issuer's accounting ledgers, the amount of PLN 238.4 million on account of the reversal of impairment losses posted in previous years on the carrying amount of ENEA Wytwarzanie sp. z o.o. shares, which the Issuer disclosed, in particular, in Current Report No. 10/2016 of 4 March 2016.

Moreover, the tests demonstrated the need to recognize an impairment loss of PLN 28.8 million on ENEA Ciepło sp. z o.o. shares.
