February 26, 2015 – 2014 annual results: all financial targets achieved.
– Current operating income (after share in net income of entities accounted for using the equity method) show strong organic growth of + 8.2%, excluding weather effect in France and gas tariff recoup booked in 2013.
– Dividend of EUR 1 per share with respect to fiscal year 2014, payable in cash (including interim dividend of €0.50/share paid in October 2014. Subject to approval at the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting on April 28, 2015).
The Group reaches its objectives at average weather in France thanks to (a) its geographic diversity, (b) its well balanced portfolio between regulated/contracted activities and merchant activities and (c) the synergies and performance gains realized in the context of the Perform 2015 plan, despite unfavorable exogenous events (drought in Brazil and temporary outage of three nuclear units).
