Balanced financial result (profit minus loss) Final financial result revealed on the basis of accounting of all business operations of organizations. Represents the sum of profit (loss) from sale of goods (work, services), fixed assets, and other assets of the organization and incomes from non-sales transactions minus the sum of expenses for these operations.

It measures the relation of cost of the fixed kit of goods and services in the current period to its cost in the previous period
Distribution grid company, DGC Open joint stock company established as a result of division of AO-Energo by types of activity on the basis of power grid facilities not related to the Unified National (All-Russian) Electric Grid
Dividend Part of net profit of the Company, allocated between shareholders
EBITDA (abbr. Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) — analytical indicator equal to the volume of profit before deduction for expenses on interest, tax payments, and depreciation charges
Electric power industry Branch of economy of the Russian Federation, including a complex of economic relations arising in the course of production (including production in the mode of combined generation of electric and heat power), transmission of electric power, operatively-dispatching management in the electric power industry, sales and consumption of electric power with the use of production and other property objects (including those entering the Unified Energy System of Russia), belonging by right of ownership or other basis prescribed by Federal Laws to subjects of the electric power industry or other persons. The electric power industry is the basis of functioning of the economy and life-support
Electric power industry system The electric part of the power supply system and receivers of electric power fed by this grid, united by a generality of the process of production, transmission, distribution and consumption of electric power
Industrial production index Relative indicator characterizing the change of scale of production in the compared periods. Individual and composite indices of industrial production differ. Individual indices reflect changes in output of one product and are calculated as the relation of volumes of output of the given type of product in natural material expression in the periods compared. The composite index of industrial production characterizes cumulative changes of production of all types of goods. The index characterizes the change of cost created in the course of industrial production as a result of change only of physical volume of produced goods. To calculate the composite index of production of industrial output, individual indices by concrete types for industrial output are gradually aggregated into indices by economic activities and industrial production as a whole
