Endesa's earnings in the first nine months of year continued to follow the positive trend marked until June, indicating that the company is likely to meet the targets for 2019 set out in its Strategic Plan ahead of time.

These positive results are still predicated on the good management of its deregulated business under complex electricity and gas market conditions, in addition to the stability of the regulated market and successful cost containment policy.

It should also be noted that there was a substantial fall in electricity demand in the first nine months of the year (-3% like-for-like) due to high temperatures during the period and the impact of the economic slowdown on the consumption of large companies.

The higher price of CO2 emission rights, coupled with a substantial fall in gas pricesand reduced hydro output made coal-fired plants significantly less competitive for covering market demand, leading them to be increasingly excluded. Therefore, given that the situation is unlikely to improve in the future, the company announced in September that it was shutting down these plants, and as a result, an accounting record of impairment of 1,398 million euros was recognised, with an impact of 1,052 million euros on net income.

The accounting record of impairment will not affect the company's ordinary net profit, nor will it impact on shareholder remuneration through dividends.

At the same time, the aforementioned market situation is causing the company to step up the decarbonisation of its electricity generation assets in Spain. Therefore, Endesa has substantially increased the investments required to develop 879 MW of new renewable energies capacity awarded in the auctions held by the government in 2017.

Endesa's CEO, José Bogas, confirmed that 'the investments in renewable energies and digitalisation being made by the company are key to enabling us to continue producing good results in an increasingly complex market. 50% of all our investments and 80% of all investments in development in the first nine months of this year corresponded to renewables projects. In this way, we will continue to lead the energy transition process in Spain, as evidenced by our portfolio of new renewables projects, some 12,000 MW currently, of which 4,600 MW have already been awarded connection points'.

Trends in key financial figures

Trends in the company's key financial figures in the first nine months of 2019 were as follows:

  • EBITDA rose by 4% year-on-year thanks to the good performance of the deregulated business, stability in the regulated business, and the successful efforts to rein in fixed costs:

-The company's strategy on the deregulated market helped pave the way for an 18% increase in EBITDA to 1,160 million euros.

  • The gross margin in the deregulated business to increased 2,043 million euros (+9%). This performance was driven mainly by:

-The resilience of the integrated margin for electricity (variable costs were practically flat) in a market climate shaped by lower demand, falling hydro output and higher CO2 prices.

-The positive contribution of Endesa's renewables subsidiary, Enel Green Power España (EGPE), which reported EBITDA of 160 million euros, due mainly to the increased investment in renewables and the consolidation of the facilities acquired from Gestinver.

-The improvement in the margin in the gas business (+71%), to 183 million euros.

-EBITDA in the regulated business fell 4% to 1,738 million euros, due to the reduction in EBITDA in non-mainland territories generation. However, the margin in the distribution business was stable in the territory covered by this activity as a whole. EBITDA for the regulated business accounted for 60% of the total for Endesa.

  • Further, Endesa went to great lengths to rein in costs: fixed operating expenses fell by 1% like-for-like in a period characterised by a sharp increase in renewables investments made by the company.
  • EBIT decreased by 80% due mainly to the impairment in the value of coal-fired plants for the amount of 1,398 million euros, and the impact of IFRS 16, the new international standard that requires companies to activate lease agreements. Application of this standard resulted in the recognition of 23 million euros under depreciation and amortisation to 30 September.
  • Net financial losses increased by 37 million euros year-on-year due mostly to the update of provisions for workforce restructuring and the dismantling of facilities, in addition to the impact of IFRS 9 and 16.
Operating cash flow, net financial debt and investments
  • Endesa's operating cash flow in the first nine months of 2019 totalled 1,810 million euros, an increase of 59% on the same period in 2018. This was mainly the result of the rise in EBITDA and the improvement in working capital (+526 million euros).
  • Net financial debt climbed by 1,455 million euros compared to 31 December 2018 due to various factors, specifically the aforementioned implementation of IFRS 16, which resulted in the recognition of an additional 271 million euros of net debt, the investments made to develop new renewable generation capacity and the payment of an interim dividend against 2018 profits, for the amount of 1,511 million euros.
  • The net debt/EBITDA ratio is just 1.9x, leaving the company plenty of room to undertake the substantial investment in renewable energies and digitalisation it has committed to in order to meet the objectives of its Strategic Plan and energy transition targets.
  • Gross investmentstotalled 1,502 million euros, up 73%, due mainly to efforts being made by the company in the area of digital transformation and to develop new wind and photovoltaic capacity.
