In addition, the positive effect on the revenue resulted from a complete reconstruction of power unit #7 at Novocherkasskaya GRES. This positive effect was enhanced by growing electricity prices at the day-ahead market and increased prices at the competitive capacity outtake (CCO) in 2013 (which includes the effect of CCO price indexation since January 2013). At the same time, due to reduced output, there was a decline in sales volume of electricity at the wholesale market by 12.8%.

Operating expenses were decreased by RUR 1 bln 23 mn (-4.0%). The cost of fuel, employee benefits and depreciation and amortization of property, plant, equipment and intangible assets were down to RUR 1 bln 438 mn (-7.1%). Cost of purchased electricity, capacity and heat was slightly higher year-on-year, by RUR 18 mn (+0.8%). Other expenses increased by 397 mn (+12.3%). The company has provided lower operating costs on the account of capacities` workload optimization (reduced proportion of inefficient capacity in the output), and cost-cutting activities.

As a result, operating profit for the 3 months of the 2013 increased by RUR 2 bln 220 mn (+162.4%) year-on-year and totaled RUR 3 bln 587 mn.
