RESULTS OF THE LW BOGDANKA GROUP FOR Q1 2019:
STRONG FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE

 

LW BOGDANKA S.A., the most modern and effective hard coal mine in Poland, making part of the Enea Group – one of the leaders in the Polish power market, has announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter of 2019. Consolidated revenue for that period amounted to PLN 540.8 million (increase by 35.6%), EBITDA – PLN 222.9 million (+74.8%), operating profit – PLN 128 million (+348.9%), and net profit – PLN 110 million (+374.6%).

In the first quarter of 2019 LW Bogdanka S.A. drilled 7.9 km of roadway excavations. In this period, the production of commercial coal amounted to over 2.5 million tonnes, which translates into a year-to-year increase of about 21%. Coal sales amounted to almost 2.4 million tonnes, which represents an increase of about 20% compared with the previous year. The average yield amounted to 64.7%, in comparison to 56.7% the year before.

In Q1 LW Bogdanka S.A. also strengthened its market position reaching a high (26%) share in the sales of coal to commercial power plants. The share in total power coal sales accounted for 20%.

About 85% of sales generated during the first quarter of 2019 were executed for Enea Wytwarzanie and Enea Połaniec.

In Q1 of 2019, the LW Bogdanka Group had investment expenditure close to PLN 80 million. The largest portion of this sum, i.e. PLN 62.4 million, was used for new excavations and modernisation of the existing ones.

Artur Wasil, President of the Management Board at LW Bogdanka S.A.:
We entered 2019 well-prepared, which reflected in the great results for the first quarter. The improvement of our results in this period was due to both increased production and sales, as well as higher contractual prices as of January of this year. We maintain the intention to increase production to 9.4 million tonnes this year. Our priority is also continuous work on costs and operational excellence, in addition to preparing ourselves to make the Ostrów deposit available by the end of next year. Considering the Company’s good standing, we have decided to recommend payment of dividend at PLN 0.75 per share, thus distributing about 49.4% of net profit generated in 2018.
