The ČEZ Group earned CZK 14.5 Billion last year, which is up CZK 4 billion year-on-year

The CEZ Group’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) was CZK 60.2 billion, up 21% year-on-year. Net income increased by 38% to CZK 14.5 billion. The increase is mainly due to the rise in selling prices of the electricity generated in the Czech Republic thanks to the multi-year presales in the wholesale markets in Germany and also higher profit from commodities’ trading, which at end of year contributed to the significantly higher than expected profit of the ČEZ Group. Net income adjusted for extraordinary effects was CZK 18.9 billion.
