The Supervisory Board of DONG Energy A/S has today approved the company's
annual report for 2009.
DONG Energy's activities and financial performance in 2009 were affected by the
financial crisis. However, taking a longer-term view, 2009 was also a year of
vital strategic decision-making that will ensure that DONG Energy will lead the
transition to a greener future.
DONG Energy invested DKK 18 billion in 2009, predominantly in offshore wind
farms, development of natural gas and oil fields and natural gas-fired power
Given the tough market conditions, EBITDA is considered to be satisfactory.
Furthermore, DONG Energy succeeded in maintaining strong cash flows from
• Revenue was down 19% at just under DKK 50 billion as a result of lower
prices, partly offset by higher natural gas production
• EBITDA was down DKK 4.8 billion, at DKK 8.8 billion, reflecting lower natural
gas and oil prices as well as timing differences relating to natural gas
• Profit for the year was DKK 1.1 billion compared with DKK 4.8 billion in 2008
• Cash flow from operating activities was DKK 9.5 billion compared with DKK
10.4 billion in 2008.
EBITDA in 2010 is expected to be significantly ahead of 2009.
