CEC Africa Extract from 2018 Annual Report

Revenue for year ended 31st December 2017 largely remained relatively flat at K2,070.2 million (US$216.8 million), a 6% decrease from the previous year. This is despite the slight improvement in billing efficiency at Abuja Electricity Distribution Company Plc (AEDC) on the back of low energy supply growth.

The company incurred a net loss for the year ended 31 December 2017 of K2,578.5 million (US$270.05 million) [(2016: Loss K 942.73 million (US$91.87 million)] and, at that date the company’s total liabilities exceeded total assets by K3,171.58 million (US$318.65 million) [(2016: K479.58 million (US$48.60 million)]and the current liabilities exceeded its current assets by K6,279.87 million (US$631.00 million) (2016: K3,331.73 million US$337.63 million).

The Group continued to expend significant effort to further restructure the US Dollar denominated acquisition finance facility that was obtained from UBA to finance the acquisition of 60% of AEDC through KANN Utility Company Limited (KANN). Interest payments on the facility are current.
In Nigeria, the implementation of the Power Sector Recovery Program (PSRP) commenced signalling the commitment of the Federal Government to ensure commercial viability of the entire power sector value chain, including, ultimately delivering optimal benefit to the end users. In the short to medium term, it is expected that the application of the PSRP principles will turn the CEC Africa asset, the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company Plc (AEDC) into a profit making entity.

No dividends were declared and paid by the Company during the year (2016: Nil).
