CEZ Group Achieved EBITDA of CZK 31.6 Billion in H1 and Increases its Full-Year Outlook

Operating results for H1 are in line with the initial ambitions; CEZ Group increases its full-year outlook for EBITDA to CZK 58 to 60 billion and net profit adjusted for extraordinary items to CZK 18 to 20 billion. EBITDA reached CZK 31.6 billion in H1, a year-on-year decrease of CZK 7.1 billion. However, the year-on-year comparison was affected by the sale of Romanian assets in Q1 2021 and specific temporary market effects of CZK 3.9 billion due to the revaluation of hedging contracts for production supplies, mainly due to last year's drop in commodity prices on wholesale markets following the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic to Europe. Nevertheless, we have seen a positive development across all segments throughout the year, which is why we are raising our full-year EBITDA outlook to CZK 58 to 60 billion and net profit adjusted for extraordinary items to CZK 18 to 20 billion as a result.
