We continue to pursue our strategy and are moving ahead with the required measures to satisfy the expectations of our customers and investors.”

The company is headquartered in Dusseldorf.
Strong gas business drives operating earnings:
• First-half adjusted EBITDA up by about 50 percent year on year
• Significant impairment charges lead to first-half net loss
• Spinoff from E.ON nears finish line
Uniper’s operating business delivered improved numbers for the first half of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA of €1.5 billion was about 50 percent above the prior-year figure of €1 billion. Adjusted EBIT roughly doubled, increasing from €0.5 billion to €1.1 billion. The main drivers were the previously announced modifications to the terms of long-term contracts for procuring natural gas from Russia along with further positive impetus in the Global Commodities segment, whose adjusted EBITDA increased significantly to €1.2 billion (prior year: €0.4 bililon).
By contrast, adjusted EBITDA in the European Generation and International Power segments declined. European Generation continued to be plagued by continued low wholesale power prices in Germany and Scandinavia. This segment’s adjusted EBITDA declined by about one fifth to €0.4 billion (prior year: €0.5b illion).
Maasvlakte 3, a new generating unit in the Netherlands, made its first positive contribution to earnings.
International Power suffered from the consequences of the fire damage to unit 3 at Berezov power station in Russia and from a persistently weak ruble. This segment recorded adjusted EBITDA of €5 million (prior year: €150 million).
The extensive repairs to Berezov 3 likely will not be completed before mid-2018.
