5 THE SITUATION AND MAIN INDICATORS OF THE ALBANIAN POWER CORPORATION (KESH sh.a.)

6 PREFACE Referring to the statement of IMF mission (25 April 8 May 2007) related to the Preliminary Agreements with the Albanian authorities on Third Review Under the Program, Albania has reached a pivotal stage in its economic development. Increasing foreign direct investments and rapid financial sector development, supported by macroeconomic stability, point to a faster pace of convergence to emerging market standards. However, risks – primarily to price stability, but also to - growth have increased reflecting as well as the deterioration of financial position of the KESH. This is consider as a major obstacle to progress of country development. The main risk - the weakened financial position of our public electricity utility, KESH –poor collection performance –sharp increase in the import price of electricity the result – reduced cash flow and net worth Referring to the statement of IMF mission (25 April 8 May 2007) related to the Preliminary Agreements with the Albanian authorities on Third Review Under the Program, Albania has reached a pivotal stage in its economic development.

10 Energy sector weaknesses reflect a combination of factors: Poor hydrological conditions are expected to reduce domestic power generation by about 30% this year compared to the LAKE LEVEL (m)

11 DESPITE ALLOWING FOR LIMITED AND WELL –PLANNED LOAD SHEDDING OF POWER TO PARTLY OFFSET THE SHORTFALL IN PRODUCTION, THE AMOUNT OF NECESSARY ELECTRICITY IMPORT WILL BE INCREASED IN – 1,800 GWh – 1 ¼ GDP

12 The regional import prices for the electricity have increased sharply and are well above the domestic retail prices which have remained fixed since the last year..

13 There are problems with the debtors arrears.

14 2 How has to be expeditiously and comprehensively addressed the situation?

15 Temporarily the companys financial position stabilization. New management Foreign (Italian) management consultancy Seventh Power Sector Action Plan Incentive package for the key employees in sale and collection to achieve performance targets Eliminating the financial gaps of the power utility in 2008 and beyond including through higher tariffs, if necessary Financing from the foreign donors (WB) for the technical improvements needed to reduce losses and theft. New investments for the increasing the power generation and supply (TEC Vlora, etc.) KESH – reduction cost and improving performance (revenue collection increased equal to 0.6 percent of GDP. Budgetary support of leke 5 Billion (about 40.6 million EURO) or 0.5 percent of GDP And the last but not the least strong political support and determined efforts, KESHs financial performance could be improved relatively quickly New management Foreign (Italian) management consultancy Seventh Power Sector Action Plan Incentive package for the key employees in sale and collection to achieve performance targets Eliminating the financial gaps of the power utility in 2008 and beyond including through higher tariffs, if necessary Financing from the foreign donors (WB) for the technical improvements needed to reduce losses and theft.
