Georgeta Corina Popescu, CEO Electrica S.A.: “We are pleased to say that, despite the challenging context, Electrica Group managed to overcome a part of the negative conditions of the energy market and the regulatory framework and to record a consolidated net profit of RON 109 million in the first 6 months of the year, which represents 90% of the budgeted value for 2019.

It is also worth noting the operating revenues’ increase, a natural consequence of both the increase in consumption during this period and the investments made, in particular, in our distribution networks and in improving the services provided.

Moreover, we are in the process of development of some new major projects, of which we will provide details in the near future. We have ambitious plans for the next period, which, in addition to continuing the optimization programs of the Group’s activity, include the products and services offer improving in the supply segment, as well as meeting the needs of our customers, both by developing new solutions and services, as well as by sustained investments in networks and technology.”
