In Q1 2017, the Group's revenue grew by RUB 12.8 billion, or 5.9% year-on-year, to RUB 230.9 billion. Revenue from electricity transmission rose by 9.1% to RUB 203.7 billion.

Revenue from electricity and capacity sales decreased by RUB 1.4 billion, or 6.8% year-on-year, mostly due to discontinued sales of electricity to a company which is part of the FGC UES Group.

Other revenue was down by RUB 2.8 billion due to lower volume of services performed by the FGC UES Group's subsidiaries under general contract agreements (an almost four-fold decline, down by RUB 2.2 billion) as key project milestones were completed in the previous reporting periods.

Operating expenses in Q1 2017 were largely flat year-on-year at RUB 186.3 billion.

The net profit dynamics in Q1 2017 was also affected by the recognition of other expenses resulting from changes in the Group's structure (regained control of OJSC Nurenergo, a subsidiary). Excluding this effect, adjusted net profit for Q1 2017 would have increased by 52.7% year-on-year to RUB 39.4 billion, with adjusted EBITDA up 20.7% to RUB 84.1 billion.
