Hydro-Quebec Key Developments

Hydro-Quebec Eyes Acquisitions

Hydro-Quebec would consider foreign acquisitions and believes it would be a good opportunity for growth in the coming years, in the same way that exporting electricity would be. Éric Martel, President of the provincial utility, let the plans be known in front of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal on Thursday and with a media briefing that followed the event. “I think we are realizing that there would be a value in exporting our expertise, to have assets outside Quebec, too, and assets that will increase in value over time,” Martel said. “We are in a situation where the world of energy (companies) is in upheaval and that gives us the chance to have some opportunities.”

Hydro-Quebec Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015

Hydro-Quebec announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015. For the quarter ended September 30, the company reported a net result of $339 million, compared to $329 million in 2014. This rise is mainly due to a $68 million increase in net electricity exports as a result of volume growth of 1.9 TWh. For the nine months, the company reported net result of $2.5 billion. In a context marked by very cold winter temperatures, it totaled $2,472 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2015, compared to $2,545 million in 2014. Net electricity exports increased by $102 million as a result of volume growth of 3.1 TWh. However, this increase was offset by a $94 million decrease in supplies provided by Hydro-Québec Production to Hydro-Québec Distribution, due in part to lower market prices in winter 2015 that benefited Québec customers.
