Eni's Board of Directors, chaired by Lucia Calvosa, yesterday approved the unaudited consolidated results for the first quarter of 2021. Having examined the results, Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi said:

“The first quarter of 2021 has been significantly impacted by ongoing national lockdowns, however despite this Eni has achieved significantly improved results, most notably driven by E&P and the chemicals business. Meanwhile, our retail G&P business continued to grow steadily, with year-on-year EBIT increasing by 19% as we leverage our unique and expanding customer base in the power segment and benefit from a greater contribution from extra-commodity services.

The performance of R&M was largely driven by lower demand for fuels across Europe due to the pandemic, plus negative refining margins. Against the backdrop of an ongoing complex scenario, adjusted EBIT of €1.3 billion is in line with the first quarter of last year and three times higher than the fourth quarter of 2020, while net profit grew to €270 million, an almost five times increase compared to the first quarter of 2020. Across the quarter, we generated around €2 billion of organic cash flow before working capital, significantly larger than the €1.4 billion of expenditure incurred during the same period. With the pandemic situation gradually improving, and a broadening economic recovery looking more likely, we have been able to improve our outlook for the coming months, forecasting free cash flow generation in 2021 of more than €3 billion under a Brent scenario of 60 $/bbl. In this environment, we will continue implementing our decarbonization and energy transition strategy, maintaining a strong focus on the robustness of the balance sheet and targeting a competitive distribution policy to our shareholders.”

Quarterly highlights

  

 

·A strengthened upstream price environment in the first quarter 2021 was driven by a recovery in the main market benchmarks: the Brent crude at 61 $/bbl on average was up by 21% and 38% respectively from the first quarter and fourth quarter 2020. Eni’s hydrocarbons realized prices did not capture this improvement entirely due to the appreciation of the cross-rate EUR vs. USD which was up by about 10%.
·Eni’s benchmark refining margin “SERM” was in negative territory (down to minus 0.6 $/bbl) due to the impact of lockdowns and a delayed recovery in air traffic.
·Adjusted EBIT: €1.3 billion in the first quarter of 2021, a strong improvement from the fourth quarter of 2020 (up by 171%) with flat hydrocarbon production (1.7 million boe/d).

The first quarter 2021 EBIT was unchanged from the first quarter 2020 notwithstanding 86 kboe/d of lower production, mainly in liquids, and the negative performances of R&M (down by €240 million) driven by an unfavourable refining scenario (the SERM was negative) and lower sales volumes due to regional lockdowns (a 10% decrease at the network of service stations), and of the GGP business which was down by €263 million mainly due to one-off positive contributions from portfolio optimization in the year-ago quarter and narrowing spreads between the PSV vs. the TTF spot gas prices.

The E&P segment EBIT was up by €341 million due to higher crude oil prices. Versalis (up by €104 million) responded to the unusual industry-wide disruption from extreme winter weather in the US by leveraging on higher plant availability against the backdrop of an improving demand for commodities.

·Adjusted net profit: €270 million, almost five-fold the result reported in the first quarter 2020.
·Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital at replacement cost: €1.96 billion and net capex of €1.4 billion (-27% vs. IQ 2020). Organic free cash flow generation was robust at approximately €600 million before changes in working capital.
·Portfolio: net cash outflows of about €400 million, fully invested in the green business.
·Net borrowings ante IFRS 16: €12.2 billion, a slight increase vs. December 31, 2020 due to the financing of M&A transactions and currency translation effects. Leverage was flat at 31%.

 

 

Outlook 2021

  

 

·The rebalancing of the global oil market and a recovery in fuel consumption in the course of 2021 are exposed to continued risk from the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in a number of large global economies, such as in multiple West European countries that are still in lockdown, as well as new restrictions being reimposed in other parts of the world.
·Reaffirming the guidance for hydrocarbon production at about 1.7 million boe/d for the FY, assuming OPEC+ cuts of about 35 kboe/d through the year on average, and an organic capex spending forecast for 2021 of approximately €6 billion; forecast cash flow from operations before working capital requirements at replacement cost higher than €9 billion at current Brent prices of 60 $/bbl.
·Cash neutrality at a Brent price of 51 $/bbl to fund organic capex and the floor dividend.
·The outlook for oil prices will be reassessed in Eni’s 2021 interim report in July for the purpose of establishing the variable dividend as well as in view of the possible resumption of the buy-back of the Eni share. The floor dividend set at €0.36 per share will be complemented by a variable dividend, which amount will increase when the Brent reference price for 2021 rises above the threshold of 43 $/bbl. The share buy-back program is expected to resume with a Brent reference price 2021 of at least 56 $/bbl.

Business overview

  

 

Exploration & Production

·Hydrocarbon production in the first quarter: 1.7 million boe/day, down by approximately 4% compared to the same period of 2020 (net of OPEC+ production cuts, positive price effects at PSAs and marginal portfolio effects) due to a slowdown in expenditures for the development of reserves, partly offset by a strong recovery of natural gas production in Egypt spurred by higher demands.

Production at the Zohr gas field achieved a record 3,200 mmscf/d, at full capacity.

In April, started-up the Merakes gas field offshore Indonesia, in synergy with the Jangkrik FPU.

In the first quarter 2021, start-ups and ramp-ups added 33 kboe/d mainly due to Berkine in Algeria, Agogo in Angola, and the Mahani gas project (Eni’s interest 50%), in the Sharjah Emirate (UAE), which was started just one year after discovery.

·Exploration successes: in line with the exploration strategy focused on areas and basins close to existing infrastructure (infrastructure-led-exploration) and short time-to-market, in the first quarter of 2021, we delivered:
-the Cuica-1 oil discovery in the operated block 15/06 (Eni's interest 36.84%) off Angola, the second discovery in the Cabaça development area, which will allow for the extension of the useful life of the FPSO operating the field;
-two oil discoveries off Norway made by the JV Vår Energi close to producing assets in the Blasto Main prospect in the North Sea and Isflak in the Barents Sea, with reserves of oil in place expected to be in the range of 200-350 million of barrels.
·Renewal of exploration portfolio with approximately 9,000 square kilometers of new leases:
-the United Arab Emirates: assigned Block 7 (Eni's interest 90%), located in the Ras Al Khaimah onshore area;
-Vietnam: completed the acquisition as operator of the Block 115/09 (Eni's interest 100%), in the Song Hong basin;
-United Kingdom: awarded the operatorship of the P2511 exploration license (Eni's interest 100%) in the North Sea;
-Norway: awarded to the JV Vår Energi ten new exploration licenses, of which two as operator in the North Sea and three as operator in the Barents Sea. The licenses acquired are located nearly areas in production or under development.
·Portfolio rationalization:
-Pakistan: signed an agreement to divest to a local player the entire upstream activity in the Country, including interests in eight development and production licenses and in four exploration licenses.
-Nigeria: divested the onshore production and development block OML 17 (Eni’s interest 5%).
·Received funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the UK Government's body that supports research and innovation in the country, to fund part of ongoing planning and projects studies relating to the development of the integrated HyNet North West project aimed at the realization of carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure in the UK. Eni will be the operator of the transporting and storing activities of the CO2 in its depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs, located at around 30 kilometers offshore the Liverpool Bay.
·E&P’s adjusted operating profit continued rebounding in the first quarter 2021 at €1.38 billion, up by approximately 70% compared to the fourth quarter 2020. The comparison against the previous year reporting period (up by 33%) was driven by a recovery in the scenario for hydrocarbon prices.

Global Gas & LNG Portfolio

·In March 2021, it was agreed with the Arab Republic of Egypt (ARE) and the Spanish partner Naturgy of the JV Unión Fenosa Gas to resolve all pending issues with the Egyptian partners and to resume operations at the Damietta liquefaction plant. A few LNG loadings have been made already.
·Through the subsequent restructuring of the UFG venture, Eni acquired a 50% interest in the Damietta plant and related liquefaction capacity as well as the gas marketing activities in Spain owned by UFG. The deal will strengthen Eni’s portfolio of LNG and its integrated strategy, leveraging on the integration with its upstream assets.
·GGP’s adjusted operating result: was a loss of €30 million in the first quarter, worse than the performance achieved in the first quarter 2020 (down by €263 million), due to one-off positive contributions from portfolio optimization in the year-ago quarter and narrowing spreads between the PSV vs. the TTF spot gas prices.

Refining & Marketing and Chemicals

·Started up a new Biomass Treatment Unit at the Gela bio-refinery enabling the use up to 100% of biomass not in competition with the food chain for the production of biofuels.
·The construction of new units for the enhancement of the feedstock pre-treatment facilities at the Venice bio-refinery are currently under evaluation, aiming at increasing the plant flexibility to achieve zero use of palm oil to manufacture biofuels by 2023.
·In line with Eni’s growth strategy in circular economy, signed an agreement for the acquisition of FRI-EL Biogas Holding, the Italian leader in the biogas producing sector, in order to transform biogas into biomethane to be supplied to the Eni’s network.
·Launched a new range of solid polystyrene products for food packaging as part of the Versalis Revive® products, containing up to 75% of recycled solid polystyrene. This new product developed by Versalis and Forever Plast S.p.A., is the result of the collaboration with a number of partners engaged in the polystyrene recycling business, such as Corepla, Pro Food and Unionplast.
·R&M’s adjusted operating result: adjusted operating loss of €159 million in the first quarter, a marked decline compared to first quarter of 2020 due to an unfavorable refining scenario and lower sales volumes due to an ongoing crisis in fuel demand in the main reference markets (Italy and Western Europe) due to COVID-19 mitigation measures.
·Chemicals’ adjusted operating result: rebounded strongly delivering an adjusted operating profit of €39 million, compared to a loss of €65 million reported in the first quarter of 2020, as the business took advantage from unusual industry-wide disruption from extreme winter weather in the US by higher plants availability and from a spike in commodity prices, against the backdrop of a mild recovery of demand for plastics across all end-markets.

 

Eni gas e luce, Power & Renewables

·Entered the Iberic energy market with the signing of an agreement to acquire 100% of Aldro Energía, with a portfolio of approximately 250,000 retail customers of power, natural gas and services, and an agreement with X–Elio for the acquisition of three photovoltaic projects for an overall capacity of 140 MW.
·Agreement with the Italian operator Be Charge, to increase the national supply of charging infrastructures for electric mobility. The charging stations will be powered by renewable energy supplied by Eni gas e luce.
·Established GreenIT, a joint venture with the Italian agency CDP Equity, for building, commissioning and managing power generation plants from renewable sources in Italy. The JV will target an installed capacity of approximately 1 GW.

-4- 

 

·Retail portfolio substantially in line with the end of 2020, with 9.56 million of PoD.
·Expansion of the generation capacity in renewable energies: as of March 31, 2021, reached an installed capacity of 307 MW (up by 56 MW compared to March 31, 2020). More than 1 GW of capacity already installed or sanctioned.
·EGL, Power & Renewables’ adjusted operating result: €202 million in the first quarter of 2021, up by 6% compared to the same period of 2020, notwithstanding a still weak recovery of the Italian economy.

·In the quarter oil and natural gas production averaged 1.704 million boe/d and decreased by 5% compared to the first quarter of 2020. Net of positive price effects, the decrease was 6% driven by the need to comply with OPEC+ production cuts and marginal portfolio effects (overall effect of two percentage points), a spending slowdown in the development of reserves with lower contributions from Nigeria, Kazakhstan, and Angola, as well as mature field declines. These negatives were partly offset by continuing production ramp-up in Mexico, better contribution of Libya and increased gas supplies to Egypt spurred by a demand recovery in the local market.
·Liquids production in the quarter was 814 kbbl/d, down by 9% from the first quarter 2020. The reduction was due to an expenditure slowdown, the effect of OPEC+ production cuts, as well as mature field declines partly offset by continuing production ramp-up in Area 1 in Mexico, and growth in Libya.
·Natural gas production in the first quarter amounted to 4,726 mmcf/d, slightly decreased compared to the first quarter of 2020. Lower production was partly offset by a robust recovery of natural gas demand in certain areas (mainly in Egypt), and growth in Algeria due to the start-up of the Berkine gas project.

·In the first quarter of 2021, the recovery in the profitability of the Exploration & Production has strengthened as signaled by a 70% increase in the adjusted operating profit of €1,378 million from the fourth quarter 2020. The increase over the same period a year ago was also remarkable, up by 33%, driven by an improving crude oil price environment (the marker Brent up by 21%) supported by an acceleration in the global economic activity and active supply management by OPEC+ countries. Against this backdrop, E&P realized prices of liquids increased by 31%, whereas natural gas realized prices increased by just 6% due to time-lags in oil-linked pricing formulas. The positive trend in the pricing environment was softened by a stronger Euro (up by 9% versus the USD) and lower production volumes driven by capital discipline in developing hydrocarbons reserves and the effects of OPEC+ production quotas. The result was helped by a reduction in the cost base and lower write-offs of exploration expenditures relating unsuccessful wells.
·The segment reported an adjusted net profit of €730 million in the first quarter of 2021, more than three-fold the result of the first quarter of 2020 due to a recovery in operating profit, better results of the Vår Energi JV (up €99 million) supported by the scenario and a lower tax rate due to a more favorable geographical mix of profits, which lowered the relative weigh of jurisdictions characterized by higher tax rates.

·In the first quarter of 2021, the Eni Standard Refining Margin was in negative territory at minus 0.6 $/barrel compared to 3.6 $/barrel in the comparative period, due to a significant recovery in the cost of the crude oil feedstock not reflected in the prices of derivative products, particularly the middle distillates, which remained at depressed values due to the low demand. Refining margins were also negatively affected by narrowing spreads between sour crudes like the Ural vs. light-sweet crudes, such as the Brent, due to the lower availability of sour crudes due to OPEC+ cuts, which resulted in low margins at conversion plants.
·Throughputs on own account at Eni’s refineries in Italy were 3.85 mmtonnes, 5% lower than the first quarter 2020 in response to a sharply depressed refining scenario. Throughputs elsewhere increased by a large amount because the year-ago performance was negatively affected by a prolonged plant standstill of ADNOC Refining’s plants.
·In the first quarter of 2021, bio throughputs were 163 ktonnes, down by 13% compared to the same period of 2020, due to a less favorable scenario than in 2020.
·In the first quarter of 2021, retail sales in Italy were 1.04 mmtonnes, down by 7% particularly at the service stations along the national highways. The decline was driven by lower consumption due to effects associated with the pandemic, with negative impacts mainly in gasoil and gasoline segments. The market share in the first quarter 2021 was 22.9% (23.3% in the first quarter 2020).
·In the first quarter of 2021, wholesale sales in Italy were 1.29 mmtonnes, down by 15% compared to the same period of 2020, driven by weak industrial activity and in particular by lower sales of jet fuel to the airline sector, which was severely affected by the pandemic.
·In the first quarter of 2021, retail sales in the rest of Europe of 0.43 mmtonnes decreased by 17% compared to the first quarter of 2020, due to pandemic which negatively affected the quarter.
·In the first quarter of 2021, wholesale sales in the rest of Europe were 0.43 mmtonnes, down by 25% vs. the same period of 2020, following lower product availability from refineries in Germany due to the unfavorable scenario.
·Sales of petrochemical products were 1.18 mmtonnes in the first quarter, up by 33% compared to the same period of 2020, driven by unusual industry-wide disruption from extreme winter weather in the US to which the Company responded by increasing production of monomers and basic petrochemicals and sales volumes leveraging on better plant availability. Sales volumes of polyethylene were also supported by a growing European demand, while the elastomers also benefitted from higher demand at the automotive sector.

-8- 

 

·Petrochemical product margins improved significantly driven by a sharp increase in spot prices of commodities due to the above-mentioned supply disruption. Significant increases were recorded in the polyethylene and styrenics/elastomers segment, driven by lower monomers prices.

·In the first quarter of 2021, the Refining & Marketing business reported an adjusted operating loss of €159 million, a significant contraction from the first quarter 2020 due to the persistent low fuel demand in the reference markets (mainly in Italy and Western Europe) due to the restrictive measures adopted against the COVID-19 pandemic, which drove down the Eni benchmark refining margin (SERM) in negative territory. The throughputs were reduced by 5% in response to the depressed trading environment. The result of the marketing business was negatively affected by lower sales volumes due to the pandemic-related restrictions. The optimization of the industrial setup allowed to recover part of the scenario.
·In the first quarter of 2021, the Chemical business, managed by Versalis, reported an adjusted operating profit of €39 million, significantly better than the first quarter of 2020 when an adjusted operating loss of €65 million was incurred. The business took advantage from unusual industry-wide disruption from extreme winter weather in the US by higher plants availability, which translated into higher sales volumes (up 33%) and better margins for polymers and elastomers. Global demand for plastics has improved thanks to a broadening economic recovery, with many end-markets like consumer durables and the automotive and packaging sector performing well, which sustained volumes.
·Adjusted net loss of €131 million in the first quarter, compared to the net loss of €64 million in the same period of 2020, following the worse result of R&M, including the investment in ADNOC Refining & Global Trading (a loss of €35 million in the first quarter of 2021 vs a loss of €18 million in the comparative period).

·Retail gas sales amounted to 3.52 bcm in the first quarter of 2021, down by 3% compared to the same period of 2020 as result of reduced consumption in Italy, particularly in the small and medium-sized enterprises segment, due to the economic downturn following the restrictive measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, partly offset by higher volumes sold in the European markets.
·Retail power sales to end customers were 3.65 TWh in the first quarter of 2020, increasing by 11%, benefitting from the growth of the retail customers portfolio.
·Energy production from renewable sources amounted to 117 GWh in the first quarter of 2021, almost a three-fold increase from the same period of 2020 (44 GWh in the first quarter of 2020) due to the entry into production of new plants in Italy and abroad, as well as the contribution of the U.S. assets acquired in the fourth quarter of 2020.
·As of March 31, 2021, the installed capacity from renewables was 307 MW, in line with December 31, 2020. Compared to March 31, 2020 the capacity increased by 56 MW thanks to the completion of Batchelor and Manton Dam plants in Australia (up by 25 MW), as well as the acquisition of the U.S. assets, already fully in operation (up by 30 MW).
·As of March 31, 2020, the capacity under construction/advanced stage of development amounted to over 0.6 GW mainly relating to the Dogger Bank A and B project in the UK (480 MW in Eni share, wind offshore) and to new capacity in Kazakhstan (98 MW, of which 48 MW wind onshore and 50 MW PV solar).
·Power sales in the open market were 6.42 TWh in the first quarter of 2021, slightly decreased by 1% from the comparative period, due to the economic downturn.

·In the first quarter of 2021, the retail gas and power and renewables business reported an adjusted operating profit of €176 million, up by 17% from the first quarter of 2020, notwithstanding the fact that the Italian economy was still undergoing a contraction. The performance was supported by gains in the extra-commodity business, also leveraging the integration of the distributed photovoltaic business (Evolvere) acquired last year, a growth in the customer base, particularly in the power segment, and lower expected credit losses, following an improving trend in collecting invoiced amounts.
·The power generation business from gas-fired plants reported lower results down by 37% to €26 million, driven by a lowered crack spread of power against the backdrop of weak demand and reduced plant availability.

Adjusted results

·In the first quarter of 2021, the Group reported an adjusted operating profit of €1,321 million, unchanged from the same period in 2020 due to a strengthening upstream scenario in line with the recovery in crude oil prices (Brent price up by 21% in USD). This positive trend was offset by the appreciation of the euro over the US dollar (up by 9%), lower production volumes due to OPEC+ cuts and capital discipline in the development of hydrocarbons reserves as well as the negative results suffered by the GGP and the R&M businesses. The chemical business rebounded strongly driven by higher plant availability and improved product margins due to higher demand and unusual industry supply conditions. A positive result was also reported in the retail gas and power and renewables segment. The Group result compared strongly with the fourth quarter 2020, reporting an approximately threefold increase due to a recovery in the oil price scenario, while maintaining a flat hydrocarbons production level.

-11- 

 

·The Group reported an adjusted net result of €270 million in the first quarter 2021, a noticeable improvement compared to first quarter 2020 (up by 358%) due to lower finance expenses, higher results at equity-accounted JVs and associates, in particular the positive performance of the Vår Energi JV, as well as a lower tax rate (down by approximately 17 p.p.).

 

Review of the Group’s tax rate

The first quarter 2021 result was affected by a consolidated tax rate which decreased to 75% from about 90% in the first quarter of 2020. The main driver of this reduction was the E&P tax rate which landed at about 50% vs 75% in the year-ago quarter, reflecting an improved geographical mix of profits on the back of a better scenario, which lowered the relative weigh of jurisdictions characterized by higher tax rates, like Libya, Egypt, Algeria and UAE. The higher average Group tax rate was due to the circumstance that the Group did not recognize deferred tax assets for its operating losses at Italian businesses due to uncertainty about their future recoverability. A normalized measure of tax rate which normalizes this latter trend is disclosed below:

Special items

The breakdown of special items recorded in operating profit by segment (a net gain of €77 million in the first quarter 2021) is as follows:

·E&P: reported net gains of €76 million related to disposal of non-strategic assets in Nigeria as well as provisions for extraordinary credit losses (€15 million);
·GGP: net gains of €101 million included the accounting effect of certain fair-valued commodity derivatives lacking the formal criteria to be classified as hedges or to be elected under the own use accounting (€154 million); a gain due to the difference between the gas inventories value accounted for under the weighted-average cost method provided by IFRS and management’s own measure of inventories which moves forward at the time of inventory drawdown the margins captured on volumes in inventories above their normal levels leveraging the seasonal spread in gas prices net of the effects of the associated commodity derivatives (€31 million); and the reclassification to adjusted operating profit of the positive balance of €83 million related to derivative financial instruments used to manage margin exposure to foreign currency exchange rate movements and exchange translation differences of commercial payables and receivables;
·R&M and Chemicals: net charges of €53 million included the write down (€24 million) of capital expenditures made for compliance to safety rules and stay-in-business at certain Cash Generating Units with expected negative cash flows. Other special items related to environmental charges (€24 million), as well as the accounting effect of certain fair-valued commodity derivatives lacking the formal criteria to be classified as hedges (charge of €22 million);
·EGL, Power & Renewables: net gain of €28 million included the accounting effect of certain fair-valued commodity derivatives lacking the formal criteria to be classified as hedges.

 

Special tax items essentially included the offset of the notional tax debt on the profit on stock (€ 135 million).

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter 2021 was €1,376 million. This benefitted from a higher amount of trade receivables due in subsequent reporting periods divested to financing institutions compared to the fourth quarter 2020 (+€0.46 billion).

Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital at replacement cost was €1,960 million. This non-GAAP measure includes net cash provided by operating activities before changes in working capital excluding inventory holding gains or losses and provisions for extraordinary credit losses and other charges, as well as the fair value of commodity derivatives lacking the formal criteria to be designated as hedges and the fair value of forward gas sale contracts with physical delivery which were not accounted in accordance with the own use exemption.

Cash outflows for capital expenditure, investments and business combinations were €1.6 billion, including the acquisition of a 20% interest in the Dogger Bank A/B offshore wind project in the North Sea. The restructuring of the UFG joint venture resulted in an overall net cash inflow to Eni, accounted for in the “disposals” item of the statement. Disposals also included the consideration on the sale of certain non-strategic assets in the E&P segment. Net of the above-mentioned non-organic items and of utilization of trade advances cashed by Egyptian partners in previous reporting periods in relation to the financing of the Zohr project (€0.27 billion), net capital expenditures amounted to €1.4 billion, 30% lower than the same period of 2020 leveraging the curtailments implemented by the management following a review of the industrial plan 2020-2021 in response to the pandemic COVID-19 crisis.

·As of March 31, 2021, fixed assets increased by approximately €3 billion mainly due to the appreciation of the US dollar vs. the EURO (the EUR vs. USD exchange rate was 1.17 as of March 31, 2021 vs. 1.22 as of December 31, 2020), while capital expenditures and acquisitions made in the period were offset by DD&A.
·Net working capital (-€14 billion) was broadly unchanged y-o-y. A higher balance between trade payables and trade receivables (approximately up by €1.1 billion) and an increased value of oil and products inventories due to the weighted-average cost method accounting in an environment of rising prices (+€0.5 billion) were offset by increased tax liabilities due to indirect taxes in Italy (payment of excise duties for the month of December in the same month).
·Shareholders’ equity (€40 billion) increased by approximately €2.5 billion compared to December 31, 2020 due to the net profit for the period (€0.86 billion) and positive foreign currency translation differences (+€1.5 billion).
·Net borrowings before lease liabilities[1] as of March 31, 2021 were €12.2 billion increasing by €0.67 billion from 2020 mainly due to the financing of M&A transactions and exchange rate differences.
·Leverage[2] – the ratio of the borrowings to total equity - was 0.31 at March 31, 2021 unchanged compared to December 31, 2020.

Alternative performance indicators (Non-GAAP measures)  

 

Management evaluates underlying business performance on the basis of Non-GAAP financial measures, which are not provided by IFRS (“Alternative performance measures”), such as adjusted operating profit, adjusted net profit, which are arrived at by excluding from reported results certain gains and losses, defined special items, which include, among others, asset impairments, including impairments of deferred tax assets, gains on disposals, risk provisions, restructuring charges, the accounting effect of fair-valued derivatives used to hedge exposure to the commodity, exchange rate and interest rate risks, which lack the formal criteria to be accounted as hedges, and analogously evaluation effects of assets and liabilities utilized in a relation of natural hedge of the above mentioned market risks. Furthermore, in determining the business segments’ adjusted results, finance charges on finance debt and interest income are excluded (see below). In determining adjusted results, inventory holding gains or losses are excluded from base business performance, which is the difference between the cost of sales of the volumes sold in the period based on the cost of supplies of the same period and the cost of sales of the volumes sold calculated using the weighted average cost method of inventory accounting as required by IFRS, except in those business segments where inventories are utilized as a lever to optimize margins.

Finally, the same special charges/gains are excluded from the Eni’s share of results at JVs and other equity accounted entities, including any profit/loss on inventory holding.

Management is disclosing Non-GAAP measures of performance to facilitate a comparison of base business performance across periods, and to allow financial analysts to evaluate Eni’s trading performance on the basis of their forecasting models.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be read together with information determined by applying IFRS and do not stand in for them. Other companies may adopt different methodologies to determine Non-GAAP measures.

 

Follows the description of the main alternative performance measures adopted by Eni. The measures reported below refer to the performance of the reporting periods disclosed in this press release:

 

Adjusted operating and net profit

Adjusted operating profit and adjusted net profit are determined by excluding inventory holding gains or losses, special items and, in determining the business segments’ adjusted results, finance charges on finance debt and interest income. The adjusted operating profit of each business segment reports gains and losses on derivative financial instruments entered into to manage exposure to movements in foreign currency exchange rates, which impact industrial margins and translation of commercial payables and receivables. Accordingly, also currency translation effects recorded through profit and loss are reported within business segments’ adjusted operating profit. The taxation effect of the items excluded from adjusted operating or net profit is determined based on the specific rate of taxes applicable to each of them.

Finance charges or income related to net borrowings excluded from the adjusted net profit of business segments are comprised of interest charges on finance debt and interest income earned on cash and cash equivalents not related to operations. Therefore, the adjusted net profit of business segments includes finance charges or income deriving from certain segment operated assets, i.e., interest income on certain receivable financing and securities related to operations and finance charge pertaining to the accretion of certain provisions recorded on a discounted basis (as in the case of the asset retirement obligations in the Exploration & Production segment).

 

Inventory holding gain or loss

This is the difference between the cost of sales of the volumes sold in the period based on the cost of supplies of the same period and the cost of sales of the volumes sold calculated using the weighted average cost method of inventory accounting as required by IFRS.

 

Special items

These include certain significant income or charges pertaining to either: (i) infrequent or unusual events and transactions, being identified as non-recurring items under such circumstances; (ii) certain events or transactions which are not considered to be representative of the ordinary course of business, as in the case of environmental provisions, restructuring charges, asset impairments or write ups and gains or losses on divestments even though they occurred in past periods or are likely to occur in future ones. Exchange rate differences and derivatives relating to industrial activities and commercial payables and receivables, particularly exchange rate derivatives to manage commodity pricing formulas which are quoted in a currency other than the functional currency are reclassified in operating profit with a corresponding adjustment to net finance charges, notwithstanding the handling of foreign currency exchange risks is made centrally by netting off naturally-occurring opposite positions and then dealing with any residual risk exposure in the derivative market. Finally, special items include the accounting effects of fair-valued commodity derivatives relating to commercial exposures, in addition to those which lack the criteria to be designed as hedges, also those which are not eligible for the own use exemption, including the ineffective portion of cash flow hedges, as well as the accounting effects of settled commodity and exchange rates derivatives whenever it is deemed that the underlying transaction is expected to occur in future reporting periods.

Correspondently, special charges/gains also include the evaluation effects relating to assets/liabilities utilized in a natural hedge relation to offset a market risk, as in the case of accrued currency differences at finance debt denominated in a currency other than the reporting currency, where the cash outflows for the reimbursement are matched by highly probable cash inflows in the same currency. The deferral of both the unrealized portion of fair-valued commodity and other derivatives and evaluation effects are reversed to future reporting periods when the underlying transaction occurs.

As provided for in Decision No. 15519 of July 27, 2006 of the Italian market regulator (CONSOB), non-recurring material income or charges are to be clearly reported in the management’s discussion and financial tables.

 

Leverage

Leverage is a Non-GAAP measure of the Company’s financial condition, calculated as the ratio between net borrowings and shareholders’ equity, including non-controlling interest. Leverage is the reference ratio to assess the solidity and efficiency of the Group balance sheet in terms of incidence of funding sources including third-party funding and equity as well as to carry out benchmark analysis with industry standards.

 

Gearing

Gearing is calculated as the ratio between net borrowings and capital employed net and measures how much of capital employed net is financed recurring to third-party funding.

 

Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital at replacement cost

This is defined as net cash provided from operating activities before changes in working capital at replacement cost. It also excludes certain non-recurring charges such as extraordinary credit allowances and, considering the high market volatility, changes in the fair value of commodity derivatives lacking the formal criteria to be designed as hedges, including derivatives which were not eligible for the own use exemption, the ineffective portion of cash flow hedges, as well as the effects of certain settled commodity derivatives whenever it is deemed that the underlying transaction is expected to occur in future reporting periods.

Free cash flow represents the link existing between changes in cash and cash equivalents (deriving from the statutory cash flows statement) and in net borrowings (deriving from the summarized cash flow statement) that occurred from the beginning of the period to the end of period. Free cash flow is the cash in excess of capital expenditure needs. Starting from free cash flow it is possible to determine either: (i) changes in cash and cash equivalents for the period by adding/deducting cash flows relating to financing debts/receivables (issuance/repayment of debt and receivables related to financing activities), shareholders’ equity (dividends paid, net repurchase of own shares, capital issuance) and the effect of changes in consolidation and of exchange rate differences; (ii) changes in net borrowings for the period by adding/deducting cash flows relating to shareholders’ equity and the effect of changes in consolidation and of exchange rate differences.

 

Net borrowings

Net borrowings is calculated as total finance debt less cash, cash equivalents and certain very liquid investments not related to operations, including among others non-operating financing receivables. Financial activities are qualified as “not related to operations” when these are not strictly related to the business operations.

Leverage and net borrowings  

 

Leverage is a measure used by management to assess the Company’s level of indebtedness. It is calculated as a ratio of net borrowings to shareholders’ equity, including non-controlling interest. Management periodically reviews leverage in order to assess the soundness and efficiency of the Group balance sheet in terms of optimal mix between net borrowings and net equity, and to carry out benchmark analysis with industry standards.

Eni’s Board of Directors approves launch of strategic project
to list or sell a minority stake in new business unit formed by
Eni gas e luce and renewables

 

San Donato Milanese (Milan), 30 April 2021 - The Board of Eni, chaired yesterday by Lucia Calvosa, has approved the launch of a strategic project to define and evaluate the industrial and financial plans of the new corporate entity that will result from the union between the retail and renewable energy activities.

The study also envisages the evaluation of multiple options to extrapolate the maximum value from this new entity during the course of 2022, subject to market conditions. Options under consideration include a stock exchange listing through an initial public offering (IPO), or the sale or exchange of a minority stake in the new entity.

Today, Eni can count on about 10 million customers, which are an important source of value for the company. The merger of the retail and the renewables businesses, whose development plan envisages a significant growth in installed capacity, will foster value generation, broadening the direct offer of services, infrastructure and green energy to customers.

The objective of the new company will be to develop renewable generation capacity in excess of 5 gigawatts by 2025. This capacity will be offered to the company’s growing customer base, which is expected to include over 11 million customers by that time, with an overall EBITDA expected to grow from 600 million euros in 2021 to over 1 billion euros in 2025.

The project, for which Eni has formed an internal team supported by strategic and financial advisors, is part of the Company’s wider commitment to delivering value through the energy transition. It will contribute to reaching scope 3 emission reduction targets, which are a key part of the broader strategy that will turn Eni into a carbon neutral company by 2050.
