CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF ENEL AMÉRICAS GROUP

AS OF MARCH 31, 2021

(numbers expressed in millions of US dollars)

 

·Income accumulated as of March 2021 showed a 0.3% increase as compared to the first quarter of 2020, reaching US$ 3,227 million, explained by higher revenues in Brazil, partially offset by lower revenues in Argentina, Colombia, and Peru.

 

·EBITDA during the period fell by 12.7% to US$ 741 million. This is mainly explained by lower results in Argentina and Brazil, coupled with a negative impact of the devaluation of currencies in the four countries, especially Brazil. Isolating the exchange rate effect, EBITDA would have fallen by 3.3%.

§Operating income (EBIT) accumulated as of March fell by 13.8% to US$ 470 million, explained by the decline in EBITDA.

 

§Net income attributable to the parent company reached US$183 million, 11.8% less than in the same period of 2020. This is explained by the lower results at the EBITDA level, partially offset by a better net financial result. Not considering the negative effect of the exchange rate, the net result would have fallen by 1.8%.

 

§Net financial debt reached US$ 4,516 million, 2.0% more than at the end of 2020, mainly explained by higher net debt in Brazil's subsidiaries, which was partially offset by decreases in net debt mainly in Emgesa and Codensa. The exchange rate effect had led to a US$ 407 million decrease in net debt.

 

§CAPEX for the period reached US$291 million, 2.7% less than the previous year because of currency devaluation. Isolating this effect, CAPEX increased by US$ 44 million, or 14.8%, mainly from greater investments in Edesur, Enel Goiás and Enel Sao Paulo.

SUMMARY BY BUSINESS SEGMENT

 

Generation and transmission

 

The generation and transmission business showed a 16.7% drop in EBITDA compared to the first quarter of the previous year, reaching US$ 331 million. This is explained by lower performance in the four countries, especially Argentina and Brazil as a result of lower energy sales. Also, the devaluation of currencies in the four countries had a negative US$ 24 million impact. Without this effect, EBITDA would have fallen by 11.0% as compared to the first quarter of the previous year.

Total Sales (GWh)14,18614,831(4.3%)
Total Generation (GWh)  9,69810,646(8.9%)

 

 

Distribution

 

In distribution, EBITDA was 8.4% lower than in the first quarter of 2020, reaching US$ 432 million. This is mainly explained by the negative impact of currency devaluation in the four countries, especially in Brazil, and by lower results in Argentina mainly due to higher costs of rising inflation. Without the negative impact of the exchange rate, EBITDA would have increased by 3.4%.

 

 

As of March 31, 2021, the number of consolidated customers showed a 1.4% increase of 358,533 clients compared to March of the previous year, while physical sales fell by 0.3% during the period.

PRESS RELEASE

AS OF MARCH 31, 2021

 

 

FINANCIAL SUMMARY

 

The Company’s available liquidity has remained strong, as shown below:

 

• Cash and cash equivalents US$ 1,170 million

• Cash and cash equiv. + cash investments over 90 days US$ 1,185 million

• Available committed lines of credit (*) US$ 1,022 million

 

 

(*) It includes two lines of credit committed between related parties. One of them for US$ 140 million of Enel Brasil with Enel Finance International (EFI) is fully available, another of Enel Américas with EFI totaling US$ 387 million.

 

The average nominal interest rate in March 2021 decreased to 5.1% from 5.9 % of the same period of the previous year, mainly influenced by better rate conditions in debt refinancing in Colombia, Peru and Holding. This was partially offset by an upward trend in indices associated with variable debt rates in Brazil.

 

Hedging and protection:

 

To mitigate the financial risks associated with foreign exchange rate and interest rate fluctuations, Enel Américas S.A. has established policies and procedures aimed at protecting its financial statements against the volatility of these variables.

 

·Enel Américas Group´s foreign exchange rate risk hedging policy establishes that there must be a balance between the index currency of the flows generated by each company and the currency in which they assume any type of debt. Therefore, the Enel Américas Group has entered into cross currency swaps of US$ 474 million and forwards of US$ 540 million.

 

·To reduce the volatility of the financial statements stemming from interest rate changes, Enel Américas Group keeps an adequate debt structure balance. To achieve the above, we have entered into interest rate swaps totaling US$ 267 million.

EBITDA of our generation segment in Argentina as of March 2021 reached US$ 22 million, representing a US$ 34 million decrease compared to the same period of the previous year. The main variables, which explain this decrease in March 2021, are described below:

 

Enel Generación Costanera S.A.: Lower EBITDA of US$ 21 million mainly due to the conversion effects of the Argentine peso in relation to the US dollar and lower power generation.

Operating income of Enel Generación Costanera's decreased by US$ 27 million, or 57.0%, as of March 2021 compared to the previous year. The decrease is mainly explained, (i) by US$9 million lower revenues as a result of the devaluation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar; (ii) US$ 4 million for lower sales revenue mainly due to lower energy sales of (-278 GWh), lower generation as a result of CAMMESA's lower dispatch requirement, mainly of the combined cycles (it should be noted that in the first quarter of 2021 there was a 2.65% decrease in the country's electricity demand as compared to the same period of the previous year, due to the macroeconomic context prevailing since the beginning of mandatory preventive social isolation (ASPO by its Spanish acronym)); (iii) US$ 3 million less in revenue from the application of the new Resolution No. 31/2020 applicable as of February 2020, which established that energy and power values should be maintained in Argentine pesos and not adjusted by inflation and (iv) US$ 11 million less from sales revenues as a result of the effects of Resolution No. 12/2019 which established that the company's own fuel supply that marginalized the company should again be supplied by CAMMESA.

 

Enel Generación Costanera’s operating costs decreased by US$ 9 million and are mainly explained by lower gas consumptions application as a result of Resolution No. 12/2019 mentioned above.

 

Staff costs were kept in line with the same period of the previous year.

 

Other expenses by nature increased by US$ 3 million and are explained by higher costs as a result of higher disbursements in maintenance of immobilized assets for US$ 5 million, offset by US$ 2 million as a result of the devaluation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar.

EBITDA of our generation and transmission subsidiaries in Brazil totaled US$ 52 million as of March 2021 representing a US$ 26 million decrease in relation to the same period of the previous year. The main variables, by subsidiary, that explain this income increase in March 2021 are described below:

 

EGP Cachoeira Dourada S.A.: Lower EBITDA of US$ 22 million mainly due to a fall in energy sales in the regulated market

 

Operating revenues increased by US$ 112 million or 94.9% as of March 2021. The increase is mainly explained by a US$ 165 million increase in energy sales which is mainly explained by US$212 million from higher energy imports from Argentina and Uruguay for commercialization from October 2020, which led to more energy sales. This was partially offset by: (i) US$ 47 million from lower physical sales to the regulated market (-702 GWh), mainly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; and (ii) US$ 53 million less in revenues as a result of the devaluation of the Brazilian real in relation to the US dollar.

 

Operating costs increased by US$ 135 million or 171.8%, as of March 2021, mainly explained by increased energy purchase imports of US$ 206 million. This was partially offset by: (i) US$ 23 million lower energy purchases due to lower customer demand in the regulated market, mainly due to the effect of COVID-19; and (ii) US$ 49 million less from the conversion effects due to the devaluation of the Brazilian real.

 

Staff costs were in line with the same period of the year before.

AS OF MARCH 31, 2021

 

 

Enel Generación Fortaleza: Higher EBITDA of US$ 2 million mainly due to higher revenues from energy sales partially offset by the devaluation effect of the Brazilian real against the US dollar.

 

Enel Generación Fortaleza’s operating revenues increased by US$ 21 million, mainly due to higher energy sales of US$ 37 million for higher demand (+804 GWh) that motivated a greater generation of the Fortaleza plant leading to a surplus of energy that was eventually placed on the free market. This was partially offset by US$ 16 million stemming from the conversion effects of the devaluation of the Brazilian real in relation to the US dollar.

 

Enel Generación Fortaleza’s Operating costs increased by US$ 19 million, mainly for (i) US$24 million from increased purchases to meet additional energy demands; (ii) US$ 6 million higher gas consumption mainly because of higher generation in 2021; and (iii) US$ 11 million lower costs because of the devaluation of the Brazilian real in relation to the US dollar.

 

Enel Generación Fortaleza’s Staff costs were in line with the same period of the year before.

 

Enel Generación Fortaleza’s Other expenses by nature were in line with the same period of the year before.

 

Enel Green Power Volta Grande: Increased EBITDA of US$ 2 million mainly due to lower purchased energy value

 

Volta Grande´s Operating revenues were in line with the same period of the year before.

 

Volta Grande´s operating costs decreased by US$ 2 million due to lower prices of purchased energy.

 

Volta Grande´s staff costs were in line with the same period of the year before.

 

Volta Grande´s s other expenses by nature were in line with the same period of the year before.

 

Enel Cien S.A.: EBITDA was in line with the same period of the previous year, explained by a US$ 2 million increase stemming from higher revenues from the adjustment of the allowed annual collection, offset by a US$ 2 million decrease resulting from the negative conversion effect due to the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar.

 

Enel Trading Brasil S.A. (start trading in 2021): Negative EBITDA of US$ 6 million as a result of temporary mismatch of contracts that forced the company to purchase energy at higher prices than those that were eventually established to comply with energy sales contracts.

EBITDA as of March 31, 2021 in Emgesa, our generation subsidiary in Colombia, reached US$180 million, representing a US$ 4 million decrease as compared to March 2020. The main variables that explain this situation are described below:

 

Emgesa S.A.: Lower EBITDA of US$ 4 million mainly due to lower physical sales volume and lower average sale prices.

 

Emgesa’s operating revenues decreased by US$ 12 million or 3.9% as of March 2021. This decrease is mainly explained by: (i) a price effect of US$ 8 million because of lower average sales prices, affected by lower spot prices given the high hydrology recorded in the 2021 period; (ii) lower physical sales of (-85 GWh) reporting lower revenue of US$ 5 million, due to lower market demand as a result of the effects of the pandemic; (iii) lower gas sales of US$ 2 million due to the termination of the Mexichem contract; and (iv) lower revenue from the devaluation of the Colombian peso in relation to the US dollar of US$ 1 million. The above was partially offset by US$ 5 million in higher revenues in relation to the sale of certified carbon bonds.

 

Emgesa’s operating costs decreased by US$ 8 million mainly explained by: (i) a US$ 12 million decrease related to energy purchases as a result of lower purchase price of US$ 20 million, minus the effect caused by increased physical purchases of US$ 8 million (+135 GWh); and (ii) US$ 10 million less in fuel consumption due mainly to lower generation of the Thermozipa Power Plant, due to the decrease in spot prices. This was partially offset by US$ 9 million due to higher transport costs by an increase of unit costs and higher expenditure from other variable provisions and services totaling US$ 5 million.

 

Emgesa’s staff costs were in line with last year’s results.

 

Emgesa’s other expenses by nature were in line with last year’s results.

EBITDA of our generation subsidiaries in Peru reached US$ 77 million as of March 31, 2021, which represents a US$ 2 million decrease in relation to the previous year. The main variables that explain such a decrease in the March 2021 result are described below:

 

Enel Generación Perú S.A.: Lower EBITDA of US$ 3 million mainly from lower revenues caused by the negative effect of the conversion effects resulting from the devaluation of the new Peruvian sol, partially offset by higher revenues due to increased physical sales and average sale prices.

Operating income decreased by US$ 6 million or 5.5% as of March 2021. This decrease is largely explained by US$ 8 million lower income from conversion due to the 7.5% devaluation of the new Peruvian sol in relation to the US dollar. This was partially offset by US$ 2 million related to a higher volume of physical energy sales (+80 GWh) and higher average sale prices, thanks to increased availability of water resources in the country and dispatch of our plants for the maintenance of other units in the Peruvian generator park.

 

Operating costs decreased by US$ 1 million or 4,1%, March 2021, mainly due to the conversion effect of the devaluation of the new Peruvian sol against the US dollar.

 

Staff costs of Enel Generación Perú decreased in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of last year by US$ 1 million because of the conversion effect, due to the devaluation of the new Peruvian sol against the US dollar.

This is mainly explained by the following decreases: (i) Enel Distribución Sao Paulo for US$ 8 million, due to the conversion effects of the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar; (ii) US$ 1 million in Enel Distribución Río composed of US$ 5 million due to the conversion effects of the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar, offset by US$ 4 million for higher depreciations for higher activations; (iii) Enel Distribución Ceará of US$ 1 million, composed of US$ 4 million due to the conversion effects of the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar, offset by US$ 3 million for higher depreciations for higher activations; (iv) Enel Generación Costanera for US$ 4 million due to the conversion effects of the devaluation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar, (v) Enel Generación Peru for US$ 2 million as a result of US$ 1 million from the conversion effects as a result of the devaluation of the new Peruvian sol against the US dollar and US$ 1 million for lower fixed asset depreciations; (vi) Central Dock Sud for US$ 3 million stemming from the conversion effects as a result of the devaluation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar.

All these decreases were partially offset by the increase in (i) Edesur of US$ 17 million, consisting of a US$ 29 million increase from higher depreciations for the new investments required by regulatory bodies, minus US$ 12 million as a result of the devaluation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar.

At the same time, impairment losses from the application of IFRS 9, on financial assets, totaling US$ 50 million as of March 2021, representing a US$ 30 million decrease compared to the same period of the previous year, which is mainly explained by decreases in: (i) Enel Distribución Goiás of US$ 22 million; (ii) Enel Distribución Ceará of US$ 9 million; (iii) US$ 8 million in Edesur; (iv) US$ 9 million, due to the conversion effects of functional currencies with respect to the US dollar.

Financial Income

 

Financial income reached a US$ 81 million loss as of March 31, 2021 which represents a US$ 33 million decrease in relation to the same period of the previous year. The foregoing is mostly explained by:

(a)Higher financial income of US$ 21 million, mainly explained by US$ 37 million attributable to the update of financial assets associated with assets under the IFRS 12 concession in Enel Distribución Rio, Enel Distribución Sao Paulo, Enel Distribución Goiás, and Enel Distribución Ceará. This effect was partially offset by US$ 16 million, as a result of the conversion effect stemming from the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar.

 

(b)US$ 13 million in higher financial expenses mainly attributable to Edesur for US$ 20 million, mostly explained by financial update for debts for energy purchase from supplier (CAMMESA) partially offset by Emgesa for US$ 7 million lower financial expenses due to lower financial debt at the close of March 31, 2021.

 

(c)The results for adjustments increased by US$ 2 million and correspond to the financial income generated by the application of IAS 29 Financial Information in Hyperinflationary Economies in Argentina. They reflect the net balance that arises from applying inflation to non-monetary assets and liabilities and to income statements that are not determined on an updated basis, converted to the US dollar at the closing exchange rate.

 

(d)US$ 23 million lower negative results from exchange differences as compared to the previous year, mainly due to: (i) US$ 19 million lower negative exchange differences in Enel Américas Holding, mainly due to lower placements in national currency compared to the same period of the previous year, and (ii) US$ 10 million lower negative exchange differences related to accounts receivable in foreign currency for VOSA credits in Argentina. This was partially offset by the conversion effects of the currencies in the various countries in which we operate, of approximately US$ 6 million.

 

The gains tax levied on companies’ profits reached US$ 101 million as of March 31, 2021, which represents a US$ 21 million decrease in expenditure as compared to the same period of the previous year. This decrease is mainly explained by: (i) lower expenditures in Argentine subsidiaries: Edesur for US$9 million, mainly because of the US$ 27 million inflation tax on immobilized assets offset by the conversion effects of the Argentine peso against the US dollar;  Enel Generación Costanera, Central Dock Sud and Enel Generación el Chocón for US$ 10 million, US$ 11 million, and US$ 10 million respectively for lower results for the period as compared to 2020, and (ii) US$ 12 million in EGP Cachoeira Dourada mainly by lower results for the period as compared to 2020. The above was partially offset by higher tax expenses in Enel Brasil for US$ 15 million, due to lower accounting losses compared to better results of the period compared to the previous year, and US$ 12 million in Enel Generación Peru, mainly from the US$ 9 million of tax profit recorded in 2020 and better results in 2021 compared to the same period of the previous year.

PRESS RELEASE

ENEL AMÉRICAS GROUP’S CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

AS OF MARCH 31, 2021

 

 

 

MAIN RISKS RELATED TO THE ACTIVITIES OF ENEL AMÉRICAS GROUP SA

 

The Group’s operations are subject to a broad set of governmental regulations, and any changes introduced in them might affect their operations, economic situation, and operating income.

 

The Group’s operative subsidiaries are subject to a wide range of tariff regulations and other aspects that govern their operations in the countries in which they operate. Consequently, the introduction of new laws or regulations, such as the modification of laws or regulations currently in effect, could impact their operations, economic situation, and operating results.

 

Such new laws or regulations sometimes modify regulatory aspects that may affect existing entitlements; which, as the case might be, may adversely affect the group’s future results.

 

The Group’s activities are subject to wide-ranging environmental regulations that Enel Américas continuously complies with. Eventual modifications introduced to such regulations could impact its operations, economic situation and operating income.

 

Enel Américas and its operative subsidiaries are subject to environmental regulations, which, among other things, require preparing and submitting Environmental Impact Studies for projects under study, obtaining licenses, permits and other mandatory authorizations and complying with all the requirements imposed by such licenses, permits and regulations. Just as with any regulated company, Enel Américas cannot guarantee that:

 

Public authorities will approve such environmental impact studies.
Public opposition will not derive in delays or modifications to any proposed project.
Laws or regulations will not be modified or interpreted in a manner such as to increase expenses or affect the Group’s operations, plants, or plans.

 

The Group’s Commercial activity has been planned to moderate eventual impacts resulting from changes in the hydrologic conditions.

Enel Américas Group’s operations include hydroelectric generation and, therefore, they depend on the hydrological conditions that exist at each moment in the broad geographical areas where the Group’s hydroelectric generation facilities are located. If the hydrological conditions generate droughts or other conditions that may negatively impact hydroelectric generation, then, the outcome will be adversely affected, reason why Enel Américas has established -as an essential part of its commercial policy - to refrain from contractually committing 100% of its generation capacity. The electric business, in turn, is also affected by atmospheric conditions such as mean temperatures that condition consumption.

Depending on weather conditions, differences may arise in the margins obtained by the business.

The financial situation and commercial outcome of may be adversely affected if exposure to interest rate risk, commodities and currency exchange rates are not effectively managed.

RISK MANAGEMENT POLICY

 

The companies that make up the Enel Américas Group follow the guidelines of the Risk Management Control System (RMCS) established at the Holding level (Enel Spa), which sets the guidelines for risk management through the respective standards, procedures, systems, etc., to be applied at the different levels of the Company, in the processes of identification, analysis, evaluation, treatment and communication of risks that the business must continuously face. These are approved by the Board of Directors of Enel SpA, which houses a Controls and Risks Committee which, in turn, supports the Enel Américas Board's assessment and decisions regarding internal controls and risk management system, as well as those related to the approval of periodic financial statements.

 

To comply with the above, there is a specific Risk Management and Control Management policy within each Company, reviewed and approved at the beginning of each year by the Enel Américas Board, observing and applying local requirements in terms of risk culture.

 

The company seeks protection for all risks that can affect achieving business objectives. A new risk taxonomy for the entire Enel Group, which considers 6 macro categories and 37 sub-categories.

 

The Enel Group's risk management system considers three lines of action (defense) to obtain effective and efficient risk and control management. Each of these three "lines" plays a different role within the organization´s broader governance structure (business and internal control areas, acting as the first line, Risk Control, acting as second line and Audit as the third line of defense). Each line of defense has an obligation to inform and keep senior management and Directors up to date on risk management, with Senior Administration being informed by the first and second line of defense and the Board of Directors in turn by the second and third line of defense.

 

Within each company in the group, the risk management process is decentralized. Each manager responsible for the operational process in which the risk originates is also responsible for the treatment and adoption of risk control and mitigation measures.

 

Interest Rate Risk

 

Interest rate fluctuations modify the fair value of those assets and liabilities that accrue a fixed rate of interest, as well as the future flows of assets and liabilities indexed at a variable rate of interest.

 

The aim of managing the interest rate risk is to reach a debt structure equilibrium that would enable minimizing debt costs while reducing Income Statement volatility.

 

Depending on the Group’s estimates and on the objectives of its debt structure, various hedging operations are performed by contracting derivatives to mitigate such risks. The instruments currently used are rate swaps of variable rates to fixed rates.

 

The comparative structure of the financial debt of the Enel Américas Group, according to fixed and/or protected and variable rates of interest over total gross debt, after the derivative contracts, is the following:

Gross position

 

 

 

Risk control through specific processes and indicators allows to limit potential adverse financial impacts while optimizing the debt structure with an adequate degree of flexibility. During the pandemic, financial markets have been characterized by interest rate volatility, which has been offset by risk mitigation actions through derivative financial instruments.

 

 

Foreign exchange rate risk

 

Foreign exchange rate risks are primarily inherent to the following transactions:

 

-Debt contracted by Group companies denominated in currencies other than those in which their cash flows are indexed.

 

-Payments to be made in currencies other than those in which their cash flows are indexed, for material purchases associated to projects and payment of corporate insurance policy premiums, amongst others.

 

-Income of the Group’s companies directly linked to the fluctuation of currencies other than those of its own cash flows.

 

-Cash flows from foreign subsidiaries to parent companies in Chile exposed to foreign exchange rate variations.

 

To mitigate the foreign exchange rate risk, the hedging policy of the Enel Américas Group regarding foreign exchange rates is based on cash flows and aims at maintaining a balance between US$-indexed flows, or local currencies if there are any, and the level of assets and liabilities in such currency. The objective is to minimize the exposure of cash flows to foreign exchange rate variations.

 

The instruments currently used in compliance with the policy are cross-currency swaps and foreign exchange rate forwards. Similarly, the policy seeks to refinance debt in each company’s operating currency.

 

During the first quarter of 2021, the exchange rate risk management continued in the context of compliance with the risk management policy mentioned above, without difficulty accessing the derivatives market. During the pandemic, financial markets have been characterized by exchange rate volatility, which has been offset by risk mitigation actions through derivative financial instruments.

Commodities risk.

 

The Enel Américas Group might be exposed to the risk of price variations of certain commodities, primarily through:

 

-Fuel purchases in the process of electric energy generation.
-Spot energy purchases in local markets.

 

In order to reduce the risk under extreme drought conditions, the Group has designed a commercial policy that defines sale commitment levels in line with the capacity of its generating centrals during a dry year, by including risk mitigation clauses in some contracts with free clients. In the case of regulated clients subject to long-term tender processes, indexing polynomials are determined in order to reduce commodity exposure.

 

In consideration of the operative conditions confronted by the electricity generation market, plus the drought and commodity price volatility in international markets, the Company is continuously checking the convenience of hedging the impact of these price variations in its income.

 

As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 there were no operations to buy or sell energy futures for the purpose of hedging the procurement portfolio.

 

Thanks to the mitigation strategies implemented, the Group was able to minimize the effects of commodity price volatility in the results of the first quarter of 2021.

 

Liquidity Risk

 

The Group maintains a liquidity policy that consists in contracting long-term credit commitment facilities and temporary financial investments for amounts sufficient to support the projected needs of a given period, which, in turn, is a function of the overall situation and expectations of the debt and capital markets.

 

The above-mentioned projected needs include maturities of net financial debt; namely, after financial derivatives. For additional information regarding the characteristics and the terms and conditions of such financial debt and financial derivatives see notes 18 and 21.

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Enel Américas Group held a liquidity position of US$ 1,170 million in cash and other equivalents. As of December 31, 2020, the Enel Américas Group’s liquidity position totaled US$ 1,507 million in cash and cash equivalents.

ENEL AMÉRICAS GROUP’S CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

AS OF MARCH 31, 2021

 

 

Credit Risk

 

The Enel Américas Group monitors its credit risks continuously and in detail.

 

Commercial accounts receivable:

 

In relation to the credit risks of accounts receivable from commercial activities, this is a risk that has been historically quite limited since the short collection term afforded our clients prevents significant individual accumulation. The foregoing is applied to both our electricity generation and distribution lines of business.

 

In our electricity generation line of business, in certain countries, when confronted to payment defaults it is possible to cut off supply, and almost every contract establishes non-payment as a cause for contract termination. To that effect, we continuously monitor the credit risk and measure the maximum amounts exposed to payment risk, which, as said earlier, are limited.

 

In the case of our electricity distribution companies, cutting access to electricity, in all cases, is the attribution of our companies in case of payment default on part of our customers, which is applied in accordance with the regulations in force in each country, which facilitates the process of evaluation and control of credit risk, which by the way is also limited. Nonetheless, the cut-off measure in the face of defaults from vulnerable customers was suspended during the health emergency period in the countries in which Enel Américas operates. In Argentina, in accordance with Decree 311/2020 issued on March 24, 2020, and subsequently extended, the measure shall be in force until March 2021. In Brazil, according to Resolution 878 issued on March 24, 2020, however, the disconnection of services has now been resumed, with the exception of Rio de Janeiro, which will maintain the measure until July 2021. In Colombia, in accordance with Decrees 417 and 457 issued on March 17, 2020, and in Peru, in accordance with Decree 35-20 issued on March 16, 2020. To date, both countries have resumed disconnection of services as normal.

 

Regarding the Covid-19 impact, specific internal analysis results did not reveal significant statistical correlations between major economic indicators (GDP, unemployment rate, etc.) and solvency.

 

Assets of a financial nature:

 

Cash surpluses are invested in top domestic and foreign financial institutions with pre-established limits per institution.

 

In our selection of banks for investments, we consider those ranked with investment grade according to the three top international risk classification agencies (Moody’s, S&P and Fitch).

 

Our placements may be backed up with treasury bonds of those countries in which we operate and/or bank notes issued by top banks, preferring the latter since they offer better returns (always framed within current placement policies).

 

It can be seen that the falling macroeconomic scenarios affected by COVID-19 did not have a significant impact on the credit quality of counterparts.

Risk measurement

 

The Enel Américas Group prepares a Value at Risk measurement for its own debt positions and financial derivatives, with the purpose of monitoring the risk assumed by the company, thus circumscribing Income Statement volatility.

 

The portfolio of the positions included for the purposes of calculating the present Value at Risk, is comprised of:

 

-               Financial debt.

 

-               Derivatives for debt hedging

 

The calculated Value at Risk represents the possible value variation of the above-described positions portfolio within one quarter and with 95% certainty. To that effect we have studied the volatility of the risk variables that affect the value of the position’s portfolio, in relation to the Chilean peso, which includes:

 

-               The USS Libor rate of interest.

 

-The various currencies in which our companies operate, the habitual local indices of bank practices.

 

-               The exchange rates of the different currencies implied in the calculation.

 

 

The Value at Risk calculation is based on the extrapolation of future market value scenarios (one quarter out) of the risk variables based on real observations for the same period (quarter) through a 5-year period.

 

The Value at Risk for the next quarter, with 95% confidence level, is calculated as the percentile of the most adverse 5% of the possible quarterly variations.

 

Considering the scenarios described above the Risk Value in a quarter, of the above-mentioned positions, is attributable to US$ 384 million.

 

This value represents the potential increase in the debt and derivatives portfolio, therefore this value at risk is intrinsically related, among other factors, to the value of the portfolio at the end of each quarter.

BOOK VALUE AND ECONOMIC VALUE OF ASSETS

In relation to the assets of higher importance, the following should be noted:

 

Real estate properties, plant and equipment are valued at their purchasing cost, net of their corresponding accumulated depreciation and losses experienced on account of depreciation. Properties, plant and equipment, net of their residual value, as the case might be, are depreciated lineally by distributing the cost of their different integral elements over their estimated useful life, which is the period during which the companies expect to use them. Such useful life estimate is reviewed periodically.

 

The goodwill (lower value of investments or commercial funds) generated in the consolidation exercise represents the excess acquisition cost over the group’s participation in the fair value of assets and liabilities, including contingent liabilities and any non-controlling shareholdings identifiable in a subsidiary company as of the date of acquisition. Goodwill is not amortized, but rather, at the closing of each fiscal year it is estimated whether it has been the subject of any depreciation that might reduce its recoverable value for an amount below its registered net cost, in which case its value is restated accordingly. (See Note 3.e of the Financial Statements).

 

Throughout the year and, primarily at its closing date, an evaluation is performed to determine whether there is any indication that any given asset would have possibly suffered a loss due to impairment. Should there be such an indication, we estimate the recoverable amount of such asset to determine, as the case might be, the amount of such impairment. If these are identifiable assets that do not generate independent cash flows, we then estimate the recoverability of the cash generating unit to which such asset belongs, understanding as such the smallest identifiable group of assets that generates independent cash inflows.

 

Foreign-currency-denominated assets are shown at their rate of exchange at the closing of the period.

 

Notes and accounts receivable from related companies are classified according to their short and long-term maturities. Operations adhere to fair conditions like those that prevail in the market.

 

In short, assets are valued pursuant to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), whose criteria are set forth in Notes No. 2 and 3 of these Enel Américas’ Consolidated Financial Statements.
