Rome, February 1st, 2013 The Board of Directors of Enel Green Power SpA (Enel Green Power), chaired by Luigi Ferraris, met today to review the preliminary consolidated results for 2012.
Total revenues of the Enel Green Power Group amounted to 2.7 billion euros, up 8.0% from the 2.5 billion euros posted in 2011. Both figures include non-recurring items. The growth in revenues amounted to 0.2 billion euros. Such an increase is mainly attributable to the sale of electricity resulting from higher output achieved in Iberia and Latin America, North America and the rest of Europe.
EBITDA totalled 1.7 billion euros, an increase of 6.3% compared with the 1.6 billion euros registered in 2011. Both figures include non-recurring items.
