Financial Results

In 2013, our revenue remained largely flat at RR 269,814 million compared to RR 271,330 million in 2012. Our energy product group delivered strong performance on higher sales volumes. Our revenue from sales of energy products increased by 11.8% year-on-year to RR 144,716 million from RR 129,409 million in 2012, which was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes of the vast majority of products despite flat average selling prices. The Company also increased revenue from sales of plastics & organic synthesis products that was attributable to the commercial launch of new production facilities and targeted acquisitions in 2012. Higher production and sales volumes in basic polymers group on the launch of Tobolsk-Polymer additionally supported our revenue in 2013.

This was fully offset by declining revenue from sales of synthetic rubbers, intermediates & other chemicals, processing services, trading and other sales. Our synthetic rubber business remained under significant pressure in a persistently negative market environment.

We also saw a decrease in revenue from sales of intermediates & other chemicals, including monomers, used as a feedstock for synthetic rubbers production. The decrease in trading and other sales was attributable to a termination of trading activity in favour of the mineral fertilisers business and deconsolidation of OOO Yugragazpererabotka(5) (our former joint venture with RN Holding) as of 12 March 2013, which reduced our sales of processing services from the second quarter of 2013, as we deconsolidated the JV’s revenue.

Our 2013 EBITDA amounted to RR 78,862 million, a year-on-year decline of 4.2% from RR 82,291 million in 2012. Our EBITDA margin totaled 29.2% compared to 30.3% reported a year earlier. The year-on-year decrease in EBITDA and EBITDA margin was primarily attributable to downwards dynamics in the synthetic rubber product group.

SIBUR’s adjusted profit for the year decreased by 15.2% year-on-year to RR 50,939 million in 2013 from RR 60,085 million a year earlier. The profit was adversely affected by the foreign currency loss.

In 2013, the Group recorded a non-cash charge related to the equity-settled share-based payment plans. Under the IFRS standards, following the increase in the Group’s directors and key management stake and the respective grant of equity-settled share-based payment plans, the Group has to recognise current and past service costs associated with the plans in the statement of profit or loss. In 2013, SIBUR reported non-cash gain from deconsolidation of OOO Yugragazpererabotka. Accounting for these non-cash items, SIBUR’s profit decreased by 24.3% year-on-year to RR 45,458 million.

Despite the decline in EBITDA, our net cash from operating activities increased by 16.1% year-on-year to RR 72,741 million from RR 62,661 million in 2012 that was largely attributable to changes in working capital.

In 2013, our capital expenditures decreased by 5.7% to RR 70,010 million from RR 74,274 million a year earlier, resulting from completion of several large-scale projects.
