SUSTAINABILITY ACROSS INDIA


As wind power will accelerate our growth and create a diversified generating portfolio that delivers strong returns to shareholders. It also gives India its first large scale wind project built using an independent developer model. With the difficulties facing India’s conventional power sector, hydropower – along with utility-scale wind power – is now the most attractive asset class in the country.

Greenko reports on its secured capacity in three categories

XXX MW Projects under construction XXX MW Active development XXX MW Operating assets

Together, these represent XXX GW of capacity

Chairman’s Statement

(Taken from old report)

This approach means we mitigate risk, secure multiple revenue streams and are well positioned to capture the most attractive new opportunities.

Picture to be replaced

The financial year ending 31 March 2012 was one of good progress for Greenko, as the foundations for significant capacity growth were completed and we reinforced our status as one of India’s leading clean energy producers. In particular, we added 1,071 MW of new projects and concessions; completed a technology partnership with GE; and secured approximately £130 million of new funding to give us the balance sheet capability to reach our target of 1 GW in 2015. We are pleased to report further progress in the early months of the new financial year, as Greenko’s first wind farm began generating power and our Executive Directors demonstrated a commendable commitment to the business with their agreement to invest £5 million at 225 pence per share. Greenko’s strategy is to create a well-diversified power portfolio that maximizes the return for its investors. We differ from most of our competitors by ensuring the business is not constrained by fuel supply, environmental permitting issues, power off-take risks or technology provider. Our intention is to work in those States that offer a good renewable resource, as well as a supportive economic and regulatory environment for renewable energy. As such, we are increasingly developing clusters of projects, as this builds on our local knowledge and goodwill, ensures faster implementation, better operational management and more robust resource data.

The Company’s profitable progress and strong underlying operational performance was achieved despite the challenging times in the Indian power market and difficult economic environment. The depreciation of the Rupee against the Euro by approximately 8 percent over the year has led to significant foreign currency translation differences in our consolidated accounts. The drop in power revenue of 12 percent was largely due to the weakness of our functional operating currency (the Indian Rupee) relative to our reporting (presentation) currency, and to the drop in headline revenue from our LVS project. Neither of these factors have an economic impact on our business or its actual profit. However, we have also taken significant steps to improve the underlying profitability through active and successful management of operational expenses and improved revenue realization at our biomass plants. We were again grateful for our shareholders’ on-going support when we raised £50 million in June 2011 through an equity placing. This was followed by investment commitments of US$50 million from GE Financial Services into our wind business and US$70 million by Standard Chartered via our Mauritian holding company, both at attractive terms for our existing shareholders. While the relationship with GE had previously only been through their wind turbine manufacturing business, the armslength investment by GE Financial Services is a welcome endorsement of our wind power strategy. We also expect to benefit from Standard Chartered’s strong expertise and ability to deploy its balance sheet into debt solutions for its investments, as the bank has globally mobilized US$6.4 billion of debt and equity into renewables since 2008, with Greenko being their first Indian renewable investment. We made significant progress over the year and while the headline megawatt figure did not increase as swiftly as we had anticipated a year ago, we have maintained a disciplined focus on only delivering high-quality assets that will produce attractive long-term cash flows. This discipline will not change. During the year, Greenko began executing its wind strategy, with 950 MW of new concessions announced and construction starting at our first two wind projects at Ratnagiri in Maharashtra and Basvanbagewadi in Karnataka. We also formalized our Technology Partnership with GE Energy, which gives us

to minority shareholders, mainly Global Environment Emerging Markets Fund III (“GEEMF”), which invested in the Group at the Mauritius subsidiary level in 2009, while profit after tax attributable to equity shareholders improved to €9.5 million (2011: €8.9 million).

Introduction It is a pleasure to present Greenko’s audited financial results for the year ended 31 March 2012, our fifth operating year as a public company. We demonstrated profitable growth, with an 8.5 percent increase in EBITDA and continued to build a portfolio that establishes Greenko as a mainstream utility player in the Indian energy market. Following successful fund raisings that brought commitments totaling approximately £130 million, we now have the balance sheet strength required to reach our 2015 target of 1 GW. The total power portfolio under our control represents 1.67 GW. This is made up of 183 MW operational at the year-end, over 550 MW in construction and 910 MW in active development. Financial Review For the full year, the Company’s revenue was €36.9 million (2011: €44.4 million), with generation of 769.8 GWh (2011: 807.6 GWh). EBITDA, a key performance indicator for Greenko, increased to €27.3 million (2011: €25.2 million), despite the financial performance being impacted by adverse currency movements and a weak market for CERs. Profit after tax was flat at €11.5 million (2011: €11.4 million) as EBITDA growth was offset by lower interest income. Basic EPS was 6.95 cents (2011: 7.44 cents). Profit after tax of €2.0 million (2011: €2.6 million) was attributed

The Group’s Plant, Property and Equipment and Intangible Assets increased by 42 per cent to €305.8 million (2011: €215.2 million), primarily due to a significant increase in construction activity. The funds raised during the year were deployed in various projects under implementation and the cash (including deposits) balance at the end of the year was €63.1 million (2011: €37.6 million). Post the year end, ACMK Enterprises Ltd, a company controlled by Anil Kumar Chalamalasetty and Mahesh Kolli, two of Greenko’s Executive Directors, subscribed to 2,222,222 new shares of face value € 0.005 at 225 pence per share amounting to £5 million. Total borrowing at the end of the year was €153.1 million (2011: €82.8 million) and as of the end of June, Greenko had approximately €252 million of committed but undrawn debt facilities in place. In the year, it also drew US$60 million from the Standard Chartered and GE commitments, with a further US$60 million still available to be drawn. As at 31 March 2012, the Company had a stock of 346,300 Certified Emission Reductions (“CERs”) (2011: 109,177). Market Environment and Group Strategy The macro environment within India continues to support Greenko. Over a third of India’s population does not have access to power and the country’s GDP growth is still estimated to be in excess of 7 per cent per annum. Given the continued population and GDP growth, plus a wider electrification programe, the country’s installed capacity is expected to reach 290 GW by 2017, from a current base of approximately 200 GW. Therefore, with fossil fuel’s difficulty in delivering sufficient cost-effective power capacity, Greenko remains well positioned to become a leading Indian power producer. Our projects benefit from long term power purchase agreements (“PPAs”) that are not available to conventional power producers, thereby enhancing the security and long-term visibility of our revenue. Most of our projects are registered under the Clean Development Mechanism
