Financial Results

In 2014, SIBUR posted strong financial results despite the challenging external environment in the second half of the year. Our EBITDA for the period amounted to RR 102.8 billion, an increase year-on-year of 30.3%, which was largely attributable to threefold EBITDA growth in petrochemicals and EBITDA growth in energy products. We also increased production and sales of polypropylene following our continued capacity ramp-up at the Tobolsk-Polymer plant during 2014. The launch of the Purovsk–Pyt-Yakh–Tobolsk pipeline provides SIBUR with access to additional available volumes of raw NGL, and the expanded fractionation capacity in Tobolsk enabled us to increase production volumes of energy products.

Our revenue increased by 33.8% year on year to RR 361 billion. Our revenue from sales of energy products increased significantly by 50.1% year-on-year to RR 217.2 billion. The solid performance of our energy product group was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes on expanded naphtha trading activities following the launch of the Ust-Luga transshipment facility in the end of 2013 and higher LPG and naphtha production following the launch of the transportation and fractionation capacities, as well as growth in APG processing volumes. Our revenue from sales of basic polymers increased by 68.3% year-on-year to RR 38.4 billion, largely attributable to operations at the Tobolsk-Polymer plant. The increase of revenue from sales of plastics and organic synthesis products was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes of PET and BOPP-films following respective capacity expansions. Our synthetic rubber business remained under significant pressure on the back of persistently negative market environment for our synthetic rubber grades resulting in a decrease of revenue by 14.1% year-on-year to RR 27.8 billion. Our revenue from sales of petrochemical products increased by 14.2% year-on-year to RR 132.5 billion.

Rouble depreciation positively affected our revenue and EBITDA as sale prices for the majority of products are primarily linked to international commodity benchmark prices quoted in in dollars and euros, while operational expenses are predominantly denominated in roubles.

Our net profit in 2014 decreased by 44.8% to RR 25.1 billion. It was negatively affected by the substantial Russian rouble depreciation that resulted in net foreign exchange loss in the amount of RR 85.4 billion, which was partially offset by non-cash gains related to the consolidation of Yugragazpererabotka and its further revaluation at market value.

In 2014, our capital expenditures decreased by 3.3% to RR 67.7 billion as we completed several large-scale projects in 2013 and early 2014, while we started financing ZapSibNeftekhim (ZapSib-2) at the end of 2014.
