EQUITY INCREASES BY 340 MILLION EUROS
Total Equity of 6.1 billion euros increased by 340 million euros during year, with 93 million euros attributable to noncontrolling interests. The increased equity attributable to the shareholders of EDPR of 247 million euros is a result of the 135 million euros of Net Profit, reduced by the 35 million euros in dividend payments, as well as the sale of noncontrolling interests which contributed 147 million euros.
While equity increased, total liabilities reduced 7% to 531 million euros, mainly in financial debt (-182 million euros) and accounts payable (-185 million euros).
With total liabilities of 7.0 billion euros, the debt-to-equity ratio of EDPR stood at 1.2x by the end of 2013, which is a decrease from the 1.3x in 2012. Liabilities were mainly composed of financial debt (53%), liabilities related to institutional partnerships in the US (12%), and accounts payable (20%).
Liabilities to tax equity partnerships in the US stood at 836 million euros (-106 million euros or -11% from prior yearend).
Deferred revenues related to institutional partnerships primarily represent the non-economic liability associated to the tax credits already realized by the institutional investor, arising from accelerated tax depreciation, and yet to be recognized as income by EDPR throughout the remaining useful lifetime of the respective assets.
Deferred tax liabilities reflect the liabilities arising from temporary differences between the accounting and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. Accounts payables include trade suppliers, PP&E suppliers, deferred income related to investment grants received and derivative financial instruments.
As total assets totalled 13.1 billion euros in 2013, the equity ratio of EDPR reached 46%, versus 43% in 2012, highlighting the continued de-leveraging of the company. Assets were 79% composed of net PP&E – property, plant and equipment, reflecting the cumulative net invested capital in renewable energy generation assets.
Total net PP&E of 10.4 billion euros changed in the year for the new additions during the year of 584 million euros, and reduced by 505 million euros for depreciation charges, impairment losses and write-offs plus an additional 260 million euros due to forex conversion, mainly as the result of a weaker US Dollar.
Net intangible assets mainly include 1.3 billion euros from goodwill registered in the books, for the most part related to acquisitions in the US and Spain, while accounts receivable are mainly related to loans to related parties, trade receivables, guarantees and tax receivables.
