Selected estimated operating data for:

(a) 9 months of 2018: Commercial coal production: 3.61 million tons Commercial coal sales: 3.54 million tons
Gross electricity production: 11.90 TWh Heat production: 7.42 PJ Distribution of electricity: 38.84 TWh (including to final consumers: 37.25 TWh) Retail electricity sales: 25.37 TWh

(b) Q3 2018: Commercial coal production: 1.09 million tons Commercial coal sales: 1.04 million tons Gross electricity production: 4.35 TWh Heat production: 0.70 PJ Distribution of electricity: 12.83 TWh (including to final consumers: 12.25 TWh) Retail electricity sales: 8.17 TWh

Significant factors impacting Q3 2018 earnings (versus Q3 2017):

a) lower volume of commercial coal production resulting from the longwall retooling schedule at three mining plants of TAURON Group and difficult mining and geological conditions (Mining segment),

b) higher costs of the provision related to the purchase of CO2 emission allowances resulting from the increase in market prices of allowances and higher unit costs of hard coal consumption (Generation segment),

c) financial income from positive exchange rate differences on debt denominated in euro, which resulted in PLN 85 million increase in the gross financial result of TAURON Group in Q3 2018. In Q3 2017, the recognition of exchange rate differences on euro-denominated debt contributed to the reduction of gross financial result of TAURON Group by PLN 60 million (no impact on EBITDA).

The Company reserves that the figures presented above represent estimated values and may be subject to change. The final values will be presented in the consolidated report for Q3 2018, scheduled to be published on November 6, 2018. Legal basis: Art. 17, clause 1 of MAR – inside information
