Korea Electric Power Management Discusses Q3 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Taking a closer look, operating revenues rose 9.6% to KRW31.6 trillion. Power sales revenue, the principal component of our operating revenues, went up by 8.2% totaling KRW29.9 trillion. This increase is attributed mainly to the overall average tariff increase of 3.5% in August 2010, and 4.9% in August 2011 as well as 5.6% growth in power sales volume, which was caused by increased demand (inaudible). Operating expenses witnessed a 15.3% rise in the third quarter of 2011 compared to the same period last year, recording KRW21.9 trillion.

KEPCO’s total operating expenses, fuels costs increased 14.8% year-on-year to KRW15.8 trillion in the third quarter of 2011. The rise in fuel costs can be attributed to a 1.2% increase in power generation due to rising power demand and a 13.6% jump in unit cost of fuel such as coal and LNG. At this time, I will explain KEPCO’s financial income and expenses. The company’s net financial loss for the third quarter of 2011 was KRW1.7 trillion, an increase of 23.4% compared to the KRW1.4 trillion net loss in the third quarter of 2010. This is attributable to increase in interest payments and increase in FX related loss.

[Foreign Language – Korean]

Equity net income of KEPCO affiliates totaled KRW118 billion, an increase of KRW52 billion over the KRW66 billion recorded in the third quarter of 2010. This is primarily attributable to a significant rise in net income from our overseas affiliates which recovered from a KRW17 billion net loss in the third quarter of 2010, to a KRW70 billion net income in the third quarter of 2011. As a result of the above factors, we recorded a net loss of KRW1.37 trillion for the third quarter of 2011 as compared to a net loss of KRW185 billion for the third quarter of last year. This concludes my overview of KEPCO’s earnings results for the third quarter of 2011.
