Commenting the results for 4Q 2016, Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin said:

“Rosneft 4Q 2016 financial results were impacted by a series of market-moving events. The execution of the Government decree on the Company’s privatization led one of the largest international investment fund, Qatar Investment Authority and a major oil trading company, Glencore to become Rosneft’s shareholders. The Company also acquired control of Bashneft. The strategic partnership with new shareholders offers the opportunities in the global trading of hydrocarbons and other projects’ development. The seasonality patterns in the investment program take into account, resulting in the growth of capital expenditures by 40.1% quarter-on-quarter. 2016 Upstream capex increased by more than one-third y-o-y, or in line with our targets. A 10% oil price growth, efficient cost control and production increase led to EBITDA growth by 25% and a twofold net income increase in 4Q 2016 vs. 3Q while maintaining positive free cash flow. The Company proceeds with the efficient integration of the new assets. We expect to realize the synergy at about RUB 40 bln this year.”

Financial performance

Revenues and equity share in profits of associates and joint ventures

4Q 2016 revenues increased by 21.4% and amounted to RUB 1,485 bln (USD 24.1 bln) with a 7.0% oil price growth in RUB terms. The efficient marketing and Bashneft consolidation supported positive revenues dynamic.

Despite a 10% decline in average RUB oil pricing, revenue decreased by only 3.1% in 2016.

EBITDA

Oil price recovery and positive effect from export duty lag contributed to EBITDA increase by 25% to RUB 365 bln in 4Q 2016. EBITDA organic growth (excl Bashneft consolidation impact) was at 15.1% in 4Q 2016.

EBITDA amounted to RUB 1,278 bln (USD 19.3 bln) in 12M 2016, rising by 2.7% y-o-y. Excluding Bashneft consolidation impact, EBITDA remained flat year-on-year (+0.3%) despite a significant negative impact from the external factors: lower oil pricing – RUB 30 bln, additional tax burden mainly related to the tax maneuver – RUB 165 bln. Strong upstream cost control (RUB 163/boe, excl. new acquisitions) make a material contribution to the financial performance of the Company.

4Q EBITDA margin improved by 0.7 p.p. to 24% with 2016 EBITDA margin reaching 25%.

Net income attributable to Rosneft shareholders

Net income attributable to Rosneft shareholders doubled to RUB 52 bln in 4Q 2016 driven by improvement in operating profit. Adjusted net income (net of one-offs and FX) amounted to RUB 113 bln in 4Q 2016 vs RUB 93 bln in 3Q 2016.

Net income is the base for the dividend payments. The approved changes in the Company’s dividend policy assume the dividends payments at least twice a year. Therefore, this year dividend payments might include not only the distribution of 2016 profit, but also interim dividends for 2017.

Capital expenditures

Taking into account the seasonality, capital expenditures increased by 40.1% in 4Q 2016. The growth in spending reached 19.2% in 2016 mainly driven by the development of the greenfields and the fields infrastructure construction, including the large-scale oil treatment facility construction at the Russkoe field, building the pipeline from the Srednebotuobinskoe field and launching the 1st oil treatment unit at the Suzun field and the Suzun-Vankor pipeline.

Free cash flow

Despite significant capex increase, EBITDA growth and the efficient working capital management allowed sustaining the free cash flow generation, remaining positive during last 19 quarters.

Net debt / EBITDA

The Company maintains an adequate level of financial leverage. As of the end of 2016 Net debt / EBITDA ratio remained flat at 1.5x1 in USD term (including Bashneft consolidation). Improved operating efficiency and synergy effect from the new assets integration secures the fulfillment of all obligations resulted from the strategic acquisitions.
