In addition, strong growth in generation in Europe (+43.4%) was largely due to a 9.2% increase in generation at Endesa Italia, which reflects that its repowering programme is nearing completion, plus the contribution from ENDESA's French subsidiary Snet, which in the period January-September 2004 only contributed for that month as it was not fully consolidated in ENDESA until 1st September 2004.

Finally, in Latin America the growth in generation (+5.4%) was due to a higher utilisation rate in order to meet rising demand, along with contributions from the Ralco hydro plant in Chile and the newly converted open cycle gas generator an apparatus in which gas is evolved
a retort in which volatile hydrocarbons are evolved by heat
a machine in which air is saturated with the vapor of liquid hydrocarbon; a carburetor

Generation/sales balance

ENDESA has generated 91% of all its electricity sales in the first nine months of 2005. This balanced situation between production and demand should considerably reduce risk in its electricity business. This is a significant competitive advantage in the Spanish market, where ENDESA generated 93% of the electricity it sold in the first nine months of 2005.

Active management of the generation/sales balance reduces the Company's strategic exposure to fluctuations in wholesale prices, particularly important at times of high prices as at present.

Revenues growth outstrips costs

Total sales amounted to Euro 12,643 million in the first nine months of 2005 up 26.8% compared to the same period in 2004.

One should note that the electricity business in Spain and Portugal's sales include sales from Spain and Portugal to other EU markets.

The increase in sales was greater in economic than in operating terms, as prices were raised to offset the increase in costs.

Growth in revenues covered both fuel costs, which were up by 29.6% during the first nine months of this year compared to the period Jan-Sep 2004 and the cost of CO2 emission rights.

Significant growth in gross margin, EBITDA and EBIT

As revenues grew ahead of costs, the Company reported significant rises in gross margin (+16.2%), EBITDA (+15.9%) and EBIT (+19.4%).

Investment of Euro 2,420 million, 72.1% in Spain and Portugal

Total investment by ENDESA amounted to Euro 2,420 million in the first nine months of 2005.

Of this amount, Euro 2,078 million was in capex and the remaining Euro 342 million in financial investments.

ENDESA is entitled to finance Euro 1,104 million of the tariff deficit in revenues from regulated activities in Spain. As of 30 September 2005, ENDESA had paid out Euro 744 million to finance the tariff deficit.

Financial structure: fall in leverage

As of 30 September 2005, ENDESA had a net debt of Euro 20,419 million, which is Euro 1,721 million higher than at the beginning of the year.

Of this rise, Euro 880 million was due to the euro's depreciation vis-a-vis other currencies in which ENDESA's debt - and that of its subsidiaries, mainly Enersis - is denominated. The remainder of the increase is the consequence of the tariff deficit financing deficit financing

The sale of a ENDESA's 27.7% stake in Auna was completed on 8 November 2005, after authorisation was obtained from the European anti-trust anti-trust adj (COMM): anti-trust legislation → legislazione f antitrust inv  bodies. ENDESA made a gross capital gain of Euro 1,206 million (Euro 1,060 million net of taxes) on the Euro 2,221 million proceeds.

In the balance sheet as of 30 September 2005, Endesa recorded 27.7% of its stake in Auna as "assets held for sale" at its historical cost of Euro 913 million. ENDESA has booked the remaining 5.01% of its stake in Auna not included as part of the sale agreement as a financial investment at the market value inherent in the sale to France Telecom, recording gross hidden gains against reserves of Euro 211 million (Euro 185 million after tax).

Asset disposal: Euro 917 million

ENDESA has followed during the first nine months of the period its strategy of divesting assets, resulting in disposals totalling Euro 917 million in the first nine months of 2005, and generating a gross capital gain of Euro 207 million.

The main disposal in the third quarter of 2005 was the sale of 100% of Smartcom to Mexican operator America Movil for US$ 505 million (Euro 408 million), producing a gross capital loss of Euro 3 million (after-tax af·ter-tax also af·ter·tax

Progress with the Strategic Plan

The solid earnings obtained by ENDESA in the first nine months of 2005 and the expectations for the 4th quarter indicate that the Company is already obtaining a high degree of the terms presented in the Strategic Plan, as per the document, "ENDESA: Stronger business, greater value".

Companies that have contributed to the tariff deficit have a right to full recognition, as it is reflected in ENDESA's accounts. However, for the purpose of reflecting the sensitivities of ENDESA's results to other deficit recognition assumptions, and without meaning that it would imply any resignation of the right to the full recover of the deficit, we have analysed two different scenarios below. The first scenario A scenario (from Italian, that which is pinned to the scenery) is a synthetic description of an event or series of actions and events. In the Commedia dell'arte  includes the assumption in the aforementioned document "ENDESA: Stronger business, greater value" of establishing remuneration for hydro and nuclear power at Euro 36/MWh with the consequent effect on purchases at the "pool" done by the supply business, while the second scenario considers tariff deficit recovery without taking into account the effects of this assumption.

--Additionally, net income excluding income from the divestiture of Auna, would range from Euro 1,450 to Euro 1,700 million, implying growth of 15%-35% vs. 2004.

--If capital gains from the divestiture of Auna are included, net income growth will be above 100%.

--Debt would be around Euro 18,000 million by year-end, below the Euro 18,698 million figure at the beginning of the period.

--Year-end financial leverage will be under 1.2, which is below the 1.4 maximum level targeted in the Strategic Plan.

--High growth in EBITDA is expected in all businesses: in Spain and Portugal EBITDA is expected to range from Euro 2,800 million to Euro 3,150 million, implying 13%-27% growth; in Europe it is expected to reach around Euro 850 million, implying 60% growth; and in Latin America it is expected to reach around Euro 1,750 million, implying 15% growth.

--Net capital gains of Euro 1,060 million obtained from the sale of its telecom business, Auna, and the expected increase in net income, will clearly help ENDESA to accomplish its commitment to distribute Euro 7 billion in dividends in the next 5 years.



Key operating and regulatory facts for January-September 2005

High operating efficiency

ENDESA maintained its leading position in the Spanish electricity market in the first nine months of 2005, with a 37.8% market share in ordinary regime electricity generation, 42.7% in distribution, 36.7% in sales to deregulated clients and 40.7% in total sales to end customers.

Output in Spain totalled 69,769 GWh, 3.6% lower than in January-September 2004 given the low level of rainfall this year. ENDESA was also hit by downtime The time during which a computer is not functioning due to hardware, operating system or application program failure.  at group 4 of its plant in Puentes which was being converted into imported coal, and at Vandellos, from last March until last August, for technical reasons.

ENDESA has continued to improve its operating efficiency in line with the efficiency plan implemented in June June: see month. , the results of which began feeding through in the third quarter. In the third quarter of 2005, ENDESA has been able to achieve a reduction of fixed costs of 3% vs. 3Q 2004 and 6.3% vs. 2Q 2005. Specifically, other fixed costs have been 14.2% lower than in 3Q 2004.

Progress in New Capacity Plan

The Company has made further progress with its 2005-2009 New Capacity Plan.

The first 350 MW unit converted to imported coal at its plant in As Pontes (A Coruna) was connected to the grid in the third quarter. Work is also underway on the construction of an 800 MW CCGT at the same facility and on the 400 MW Cristobal Colon CCGT in Huelva, which is expected to start trial operations by year-end.

The Portuguese anti-trust authorities also gave the green light to ENDESA's acquisition of the Portuguese renewable energies Renewable energy utilizes natural resources such as sunlight, wind, tides and geothermal heat, which are naturally replenished. Renewable energy technologies range from solar power, wind power, and hydroelectricity to biomass and biofuels for transportation.  company Finerge in the third quarter of 2005. Finerge has installed capacity of 60 MW.

ENDESA is also adding another 305 MW of wind farm capacity in the Iberian Mainland. Out of which 52 MW will come on stream before the end of the year.

High growth rates Growth Rates

Remember, historically high growth rates don't always mean a high rate of growth looking into the future.
 in ENDESA's distribution markets

ENDESA's total demand in the first nine months of 2005 was 83,731 GWh, 5.6% higher than in the same period of 2004, once again showing its strong growth potential in the Spanish market.

The number of customers served by ENDESA's distribution facilities grew by 185,961 from the same period last year. Its number of deregulated customers at the end of the third quarter was 962,573.

 in the second half of 2004, has contributed to a significant improvement in the Company's quality of supply during the first nine months of 2005. This becomes especially relevant in a year with such a high growth in demand.

ENDESA's system average interruption duration index (SAIDI) improved 16% compared to the first nine months of last year.

The Company significantly improved the quality of supply in Andalusia and Catalonia, where the SAIDI improved by 19%.

ENDESA's retention rate for customers switching to the deregulated market was 86.9%, higher than the average for other companies in this industry, reflecting a high degree of loyalty towards the Company.

Net income up 24.4%

Net income from the electricity business in Spain and Portugal in January-September 2005 totalled Euro 1,051 million, up 24.4% on the same period in 2004. This figure represents 67.5% of ENDESA's total net income.

ENDESA divested Euro 120 million worth of Spanish non-core assets in the first nine months of 2005, booking a gross capital gain of Euro 102 million.

EBIT: Euro 1,634 million (+12.9%)

This business posted EBIT of Euro 1,634 million in January-September 2005, an increase of 12.9% on January-September 2004.

Sales increased by 23.6% to Euro 6,175 million, largely due to a rise in volumes and selling prices to end customers, and higher wholesale prices.

The increase in sales was sufficient to offset the sharp jump in fuel costs driven largely higher prices and volumes, and the net cost of the CO2 emission rights deficit.

In addition, low rainfall, high fuel costs and the cost of meeting the CO2 emission rights deficit meant that generation pool prices rose in average 81.5%.

Given the limited increase in the electricity tariff (just 1.7%) the system's costs could not be covered, particularly generation costs, given the pool price levels. As a result, the industry incurred an estimated deficit of revenues from regulated activities of Euro 2,500 million, of which Euro 1,104 million corresponds to ENDESA.

The Company has booked this amount as a recoverable asset following the same criteria as the rest of the industry. Not considering the deficit as revenue, net income from ENDESA's electricity business in Spain and Portugal would have fallen by 60.5%.

Companies financing the regulated activities tariff deficit are entitled to a full recognition, as it is reflected in ENDESA's accounts. However, for the purpose of reflecting sensitivities to ENDESA's results to other deficit recognition assumptions, and without meaning that it would imply any resignation of the right to the full recover of the deficit, it is worth noting that even if legislation establishes at Euro 36/MWh the remuneration to the hydro and nuclear power production, with the consequent effect on purchases at the "pool" done by the supply business, (hypothesis considered in ENDESA's strategic plan "ENDESA: Stronger business, greater value" released on 3 October 2005), revenues in Spain & Portugal would have been Euro 275 million lower, leaving total net income from the electricity business in Spain and Portugal at Euro 872 million, 3.2% higher than in January-September 2004.

Mainland generation

Electricity demand in the Spanish mainland system rose by 6.3% in the first nine months of 2005. Ordinary regime generation increased by 3.0%, while renewables/CHP output was up by 14.4%.

ENDESA's mainland electricity output in the ordinary regime reached 57,806 GWh during the period, a 5.4% decrease vs. the first nine months of 2004.

ENDESA's hydro output fell by 29.9% between January and September 2005 in comparison with the same period in 2004, while output for the rest of the industry declined by 45.8%. Thermal production in the industry rose by 39.8% versus an increase of just 6.1% by of ENDESA.

Contribution of coal plants to covering demand

The importance of ENDESA's coal-fired plants in meeting demand was highlighted by the low levels of rainfall seen in the first nine months of 2005.

These plants have achieved an availability rate of 86.9%, meeting the requirements of the system and demonstrating that, despite new capacity based on CCGTs and wind farms already added to the grid, coal power plants are still clearly essential in meeting the country's electricity needs.

More specifically, output from ENDESA's coal-fired plants has covered 14.7% of demand in the Iberian Peninsula Iberian Peninsula, c.230,400 sq mi (596,740 sq km), SW Europe, separated from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees. Comprising Spain and Portugal, it is washed on the N and W by the Atlantic Ocean and on the S and E by the Mediterranean Sea; the Strait of Gibraltar  over the first nine months of 2005.

Increase in ENDESA's sales to the pool

ENDESA's sales to the pool totalled Euro 3,776 million in the first nine months of 2005, 76.8% higher than in the same period in 2004, due to an 81.3% rise in the average pool price, including the capacity payment.

This rise in the pool price was due to higher fuel prices and the cost of meeting the CO2 emission rights deficit, together with the effects of the drought, which led to a very limited use of hydroelectric plants.

In absolute terms (Alg.) such as are known, or which do not contain the unknown quantity.

See also: Absolute
, the average pool price for the first nine months of 2005 including capacity payments, was Euro 59.33 per MWh vs. Euro 32.73 per MWh in January-September 2004.

ENDESA's supply and generation subsidiaries acquired energy from the pool for a total of Euro 1,600 million, acquisitions that were offset by the energy sold by the company to the pool. The markets and time bands were the same in both cases, and the purchase price therefore matched the selling price.

Output of ENDESA's renewables/CHP sites

Renewable/CHP subsidiaries fully consolidated by ENDESA produced 1,569 GWh in the first nine months of 2005. That figure represents a 14.2% increase in relation to the same period of 2004. ENDESA also has holdings in other renewable/CHP companies, which generated 2,912 GWh in the first nine months.

Revenues from sales of renewable/CHP energy generated by consolidated companies totalled Euro 151 million, 71.6% more than in the same period in 2004, EBIT rose 209.5% to Euro 65 million.

Supply to deregulated customers

ENDESA had 962,573 deregulated clients as of 30 September 2005. Out of which 913.918 are customers from the mainland liberalised market, 47,368 from the non-mainland systems, and 2,007 are form other European liberalised markets outside Spain.

ENDESA's sales to these customers totalled 27,442 GWh in the first nine months of 2005, 20.1% more than in the same period of 2004. Of this amount, 24,383 GWh were in the Spanish deregulated market, up 21.0% on the same period of 2004, and 3,059 GWh in other deregulated European markets, up 12.9%.

Revenues from supply to deregulated customers in Spain totalled Euro 1,178 million, a 23.9% increase on the first nine months in 2004.

Out of the revenues from supply to deregulated customers in Spain, Euro 1,098 million corresponded to the mainland liberalised market and Euro 80 million to the non-mainland market.

Finally, revenues from sales to deregulated European customers outside Spain stood at Euro 171 million, an increase of 35.7% on January-September 2004.


ENDESA distributed 83,731 GWh of electricity in the Spanish market in the first nine months of 2005, a 5.6% increase on the same period of 2004.

Revenues from regulated distribution increased to Euro 1,197 million, 2.7% more than in January-September 2004. This minor increase does not reflect the investment effort, and also the operational and maintenance work required to increase the security and quality of supply.

, its turnover on this business was not booked as revenue, as the only revenue from distribution is the remuneration already included in the tariff. The rest of the turnover merely corresponds to costs incurred and passed on.

Non-mainland generation

ENDESA's output in non-mainland systems in the first nine months of 2005 was 10,394 GWh, 5.2% more than in the same period of 2004. Sales rose 24.4% to Euro 975 million.

ENDESA's January-September 2005 accounts include revenues of Euro 110 million in addition to the compensation envisaged in the 2005 electricity tariff. This has been calculated, with conservative criteria, by applying the methodology set out in the draft regulation mentioned above.

No additional sum was included for previous years over and above the figure recorded as of year-end 2004. The Company awaits the definitive regulatory outcome due to be released in the following months.

Technological CTCs and deficit on regulated revenues

As already mentioned, in the first nine months of 2005 regulated revenues were not sufficient to offset system costs, leaving an estimated deficit of Euro 2,500 million.

According to the provisions of Royal Decree Law 5/2005 of 11 March, ENDESA must contribute 44.16% of the total amount of this deficit (Euro 1,104 million).

, the Company is entitled to the full recovery of the sums contributed. The government should, however, establish a specific procedure for the return of these sums, as it did in 2002.

Other Spanish utilities also support our view. For this reason, ENDESA's accounts as of 30 September 2005 include a financial asset of Euro 1,104 million to reflect its right to recover the amounts contributed in relation to the regulated revenues deficit.

In the first nine months of 2004, ENDESA's technological CTC CTC - Cornell Theory Center  revenues totalled Euro 142 million.

Gas distribution and supply

ENDESA sold 15,289 GWh of gas up to September 2005, through companies who are consolidated in the Group; this amount represents a 56.1% increase on the same period in 2004.

Of this amount, 13,355 GWh were sold in the deregulated market, an increase of 69.3%, and 1,934 GWh in the regulated market, an increase of 1.4%. In addition 791 GWh of total sales correspond to companies that are not fully consolidated given their limited contribution to the Group total.

Consequently, total sales in the regulated market amounted to 2,725 GWh a 0.3% increase versus January-September 2004.

The 16,080 GWh sold in both markets, together with the 16,637 GWh of gas consumed con·sume

 by ENDESA's generation plants, amount to a total of 32,717 GWh, implying an 11.9% share of the Spanish natural gas market. The target of 12% by 2007 envisaged in the Company's Strategic Plan has therefore already been achieved.

Revenues from gas sales in the deregulated market in the first nine months of 2005 totalled Euro 216 million, an increase of 111.8% on the same period in 2004.

Revenues from regulated gas distribution rose 14.3% to Euro 32 million.

Other operating revenues operating revenue

We would like to highlight that ENDESA's fuel unit cost for mainland generation in ordinary regime for the first nine months of 2005 stood at EUR 16.2/MWh, 24.7% below the rest of the industry.

Power purchases

Power purchases in the period rose by 123.8% to Euro 649 million.

The main component under this heading relates to gas purchases for supplying deregulated customers, which rose 128.9% due to the 69.3% increase in sales to this type of client and the increase in natural gas prices.

The rest corresponds to transactions made in the wholesale generation market. The increase of these purchases is related with the 81.3% increase in the average pool price.

Fuel consumption

Fuel consumption amounted to Euro 1,493 million in the first nine months of 2005, an increase of 34.9% vs. the same period in 2004.

This increase is due to the rise in fuel-oil production (higher unit costs than other technologies) and to the generalized gen·er·al·ized

 by the company's active fuel purchasing policy, which has enabled the company to beat market prices.

Other supplies and services

Other supplies and services expenses totalled Euro 674 million in the first nine months, up Euro 544 million vs. the same period last year.

This increase was due to the booking of Euro 477 million in expenses from emission rights required to cover the CO2 emissions made in the first nine months of the year, which totalled 39.2 million tonnes, out of which 29.8 million tonnes correspond to the mainland and 9.4 million tonnes for non-mainland emissions.

Expenses for mainland emissions were valued as follows:

--For the portion of these emissions covered by freely allocated emission rights, at the same price at which the revenues are booked, i.e. the market price at the beginning of 2005.

--For the portion of these emissions covered by rights acquired in the market, the expense is recorded at the price paid for these rights.

--The portion of these emissions for which ENDESA does not own rights was recorded at the market price of these rights as of 30 September 2005, Euro 22.85 per tonne tonne

 emission rights.

The net effect of revenues and expenses booked in January-September 2005 to cover CO2 emissions was Euro 131 million, corresponding to an estimated rights deficit of 5.9 million tonnes.

Personnel expenses

As of 30 September 2005, the workforce in Spain and Portugal totalled 12,730 employees, down 1.2% on 2004 year-end.

Personnel expenses amounted to Euro 673 million in January-September 2005, an increase of 11.2% vs. the same period in 2004. The increase was principally due to factors not related to regular wages.

From January to September 2005, an extra Euro 22 million was recorded in provisions to cover future pension or early-retirement commitments, primarily to offset the effects of higher real inflation over the period than that envisaged in the actuarial ac·tu·ar·y  
n. pl. ac·tu·ar·ies

 studies used to calculate this liability at the close of 2004. In 2004, this factor was only recorded at year-end.

Stripping out these provisions and other non-recurring expense items, mainly related to variables that affect future pensions or early-retirement commitments, personnel costs rose by 4.5%.

Other fixed operating expenses

Other fixed operating expenses totalled Euro 706 million in the first nine months of 2005, an increase of 3.8% with respect to the same period in 2004.

The cost reduction plan began to bear fruit in the third quarter of 2005 as evidenced by the 14.2% decline in other fixed costs for this quarter vs. the same quarter last year.

Net financial expenses: 10.3% improvement

ENDESA reported a net financial loss for the first nine months of 2005 of Euro 359 million, of which, Euro 356 million corresponds to net financial expenses. This includes Euro 45 million for the cost of preferred shares Preferred shares

On a like-for-like basis, net financial expenses decreased by Euro 86 million in January-September 2005, i.e. 19.5%.

As of 30 September 2005, net debt in Spain and Portugal stood at Euro 11,452 million, up from Euro 9,586 million at the beginning of this year. This rise can be explained by the Euro 744 million paid during the first nine months of the year to finance the tariff deficit, and the major distribution investment made in the period as part of ENDESA's Quality Excellence Plan.

Equity-accounted income

Equity-accounted income for ENDESA's electricity business in Spain and Portugal totalled Euro 42 million. This heading includes, among others, Euro 8 million in income from subsidiaries in Portugal and Euro 11 million from renewables/CHP generation subsidiaries. Equity-accounted income rose by 31.3% vs. the same period last year.

Asset disposals: Euro 102 million in capital gains

In the first nine months of 2005, ENDESA sold Euro 120 million worth of non-strategic electricity assets from its business in Spain and Portugal, posting gross capital gains of Euro 102 million. Among these we highlight the sale of land in Palma de Mallorca Palma is the major city and port on the island of Mallorca and capital city of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands in Spain. It is situated on the south coast of the island on the Bay of Palma.  where GESA's headquarters were formerly located and the sale of the "Lepanto" building in Barcelona Barcelona (bär'səlō`nə, Catalan bär'səlō`nə, Span. bär'thālō`nä), city (1990 pop. 4,738,354), capital of Barcelona prov. and chief city of Catalonia, NE Spain, on the Mediterranean Sea. , generating gross capital gains of Euro 89 million (Euro 75 million net of taxes).

In addition, ENDESA agreed to sell EDP the 49% stake held by Endesa Gas in Portuguese company, NQF Gas, for Euro 57 million. The deal is only pending to the materialization ma·te·ri·al·ize

 of certain conditions of the agreement. As a result, ENDESA ceased to account for the NQF stake under the equity method instead booking the investment under "assets held for sale". As of 30 September 2005, ENDESA's stake in NQF Gas had a book value of Euro 21 million. The corresponding capital gain is not reflected in the company's financial statements as of 30 September 2005.

Cash flow: Euro 1,669 million

Cash flow from operations Cash flow from operations

A firm's net cash inflow resulting directly from its regular operations (disregarding extraordinary items such as the sale of fixed assets or transaction costs associated with issuing securities), calculated as the sum of net income plus noncash expenses
 from the Spanish and Portuguese electricity business amounted to Euro 1,669 million in January-September 2005, an increase of 13.5% vs. the same period in 2004.

Investments: 70% increase in new generation capacity and 59.9% increase in distribution quality improvement

Total investment in Spain and Portugal reached Euro 1,746 million in the first nine months of 2005, up 62.7% on the same period last year.

85% of total investment was capex used in developing or improving electricity generation and distribution facilities, in order to maintain ENDESA's position of leadership in the Spanish market.

The capex breakdown reflects the considerable effort made by the Company over the last few years to improve its service quality, with investment in distribution facilities accounting for 61.7% of the total.

Additionally, it is significant the capex done by ENDESA's to increase its generation capacity; among which worth mentioning are: (i) the conversion to imported coal of group 4 and construction of 800 MWs of CCGT in As Pontes, (ii) the construction of 400MW CCGT in the Colon plant and (iii) the capacity increase of special regime generation.

The newly consolidated investment relates to the acquisition during the third quarter of this year of Portuguese renewables renewables nplerneuerbare Energien pl  Company, Finerge, for Euro 151 million.

Strong EBITDA growth for the year 2005

According to current estimates, Spain & Portugal's EBITDA would range from Euro 2,800 million to Euro 3,150 million by year-end 2005, implying a 13% to 27% increase vs. 2004.


Excellent results and sound outlook for growth

In the rest of Europe, ENDESA focused on its two main strategic goals: consolidating its position in this market and seeking new growth opportunities.

With regards to Endesa Italia, it is worth mentioning the strong growth achieved in main operating figures during the period: installed capacity has increased by 11%, electricity output by 9.2% and sales by 18.2%.

On the other hand, in 3Q05, ENDESA and the Italian group Merloni signed an agreement pursuant to which ENDESA will acquire 51% of the Italian company MF Power, owner of three Italian wind farms with a total capacity of 60 MW.

Moreover, the construction of two combined cycle A combined cycle is characteristic of a power producing engine or plant that employs more than one thermodynamic cycle.

Revenues reported by the Italian group grew 33.1% in the analysed period due largely to the 18.2% increase in energy sold.

The Company sold 23,153 GWh of electricity, compared to 19,589 GWh in the same period last year, which represents an increase of 18.2%. Out of the previous amount, 5,824 GWh were acquired from third parties at a cost of Euro 224 million, representing 2,107 GWh more than in the same period of 2004.

Total electricity generation of the Company was 17,329 GWh in the period January-September 2005, an increase of 1,457 GWh or 9.2% relative to the same period in 2004. Market share in the Italian market was 8.1% during the first nine months of 2005.

Progress in ENDESA fulfilling Italia's programme for repowering its thermal production plant has allowed it to increase production by using a more efficient mix that replaces fuel-gas output with power generated by CCGTs. This programme enables the Company to soften the impact of the increase in fuel prices.

Endesa Italia's fuel costs increased in the first nine months of the year by just 22.7%, or Euro 120 million. This figure is far less than the increase in revenues resulting from the higher electricity prices triggered by the jump in fuel prices.

The positive impact of the repowering programme is also clear when we compare the breakdown by technology for the group in the first nine months of 2004 with the same period of 2005: the weight of CCGT plant in the production mix has increased from 27.5% to 48%, while the weight of fuel-gas has declined from 34.6% to 16.1%.

The line "other supplies and services" includes, among other items, the estimated cost of CO2 emissions in the first nine months of 2005, which are not expected to be covered by the emission rights to be distributed by the Italian government.

On the other hand, on 23rd June 2005, a Decree was published in Italy granting Endesa Italia the right to charge Euro 169 million in stranded strand 1

 costs in 2005-2009.

Euro 25 million of the total amount approved was booked as an increase in revenues on the Profit and Loss account for the first nine months of 2005 and the remaining Euro 144 million was deferred according to the useful life of the related facilities.

Debt reduced by Euro 643 million

Net debt at ENDESA's electricity business in Europe stood at Euro 1,480 million at 30 September, 2005, compared to Euro 2,123 million at the beginning of the year - a reduction of Euro 643 million, or 30.3%.

Financial results reflected a cost of Euro 44 million in the first nine months of 2005, Euro 1 million less than in January-September 2004.

Cash flow: up 34.2%

Cash flow generated from operations stood at Euro 502 million, a rise of 34.2% compared to the same period in 2004.

Investments: Euro 160 million

Investment in the European electricity business was Euro 160 million in January-September 2005. Out of this amount, Euro 135 million was capex, with Euro 79 million of investment in Endesa Italia and Euro 56 million in Snet.

Financial investments for the period were Euro 21 million, including the purchase of minority interests in Sodelif, Snet's subsidiary, amounting to Euro 6 million.


In the first nine months of 2005, ENDESA has made the following divestments in its European business:

--The sale of a 5.33% stake in Endesa Italia to ASM Brescia for Euro 159 million, generating a net capital gain of Euro 24 million.

--The sale of Snet's 23.62% stake in the generator Sechilienne-Sidec for Euro 104 million, generating a gross capital gain of Euro 48 million (Euro 26 million after taxes and minorities).

--The sale of ENDESA's 18% stake in the Moroccan water utility Lydec for Euro 26 million, generating a net capital gain of Euro 12 million.

Strong EBITDA growth for the year 2005

According to current estimates, EBITDA for the European business will reach around Euro 850 million by year-end 2005, implying a 60% increase vs. 2004.

 enabled high growth in demand for electricity during the first nine months of 2005 vs. 2004 with average sales growth of 5.5% in all areas in which ENDESA's subsidiaries operate. This increase in demand boosted generation at ENDESA's subsidiaries, which showed average growth of 5.4% compared to the same period last year.

Better economic conditions also led to widespread increases in prices and business margins. As a consequence the EBIT rose by 5.0% in generation and transmission, and 21.6% in distribution.

Growth in volume sales in generation and distribution

Generation and distribution figures for ENDESA's Latin American subsidiaries were as follows:

Improved generation and distribution margins

Growth in demand and tighter reserve margins caused the unit margin of generation companies to increase by 11.4% in January-September 2005 compared to the same period last year, to US$ 20.6 per MWh produced.

It is significant that this increase has been achieved in an unfavourable environment due to the increase in liquid fuel prices and the gas shortages in Chile and Argentina Argentina (ärjəntē`nə, Span. ärhāntē`nä), officially Argentine Republic, republic (2005 est. pop. 39,538,000), 1,072,157 sq mi (2,776,889 sq km), S South America. .

The high degree pass through of the generation prices in the tariff reviews undertaken this year coupled with the operating efficiency of the companies, improved Distribution margins. Their VAD increased by 20.3% to US$ 27.9 per MWh distributed.

Development of regulatory framework

In the third quarter of the current year, further improvements of the regulatory framework on which ENDESA's subsidiaries develop their activities have come into place. Main milestones are:

--In Argentina, agreement between Edesur and Uniren, that ratifies the 28% VAD increase as a Transition Tariff Framework, brings forward the validity of the Integral Tariff Revision (programming) revision - A release of a piece of software which is not a major release or a bugfix, but only introduces small changes or new features.  (RTI RTI - Return from interrupt ) to 1 August 2006 and limits the distributor's contribution to the so called social tariff.

--In Peru, Edelnor tariff review, valid for the following four years, was successfully completed in the third quarter. A preliminary scheme, which maintains current VAD, was published on October 13th 2005.

Generation and transmission


In the first nine months of 2005, generation was impacted by the gas supply problems affecting the thermal plants, which required substituting gas with more expensive liquid fuels.

For ENDESA's subsidiaries this issue was more than offset by the 14% increase in energy generated from hydropower hy·dro·pow·er  
Hydroelectric power.
 thanks to the Ralco plant joining the grid in the third quarter of 2004. Therefore, EBIT increased 34.6% in the first nine months of 2005 vs. the same period last year to Euro171 million.

Lower rainfall led to a 1.8% reduction of energy generated. However, this fall was offset by the increase in the average sales price and the favourable trend in the Colombian peso Noun 1. Colombian peso - the basic unit of money in Colombia; equal to 100 centavos

 relative to the Euro, driving EBITDA to Euro 171 million and EBIT to Euro 135 million, increasing them by 6.9% and 4.7% respectively, versus the same period last year.

Brazil - Generation

Total electricity generation fell 17.3%, due to problems of gas supply that have affected Endesa Fortaleza Fortaleza (frtəlĕ`zə), city (1996 pop. 1,967,365), capital of Ceará state, NE Brazil, a port on the Atlantic Ocean. . However, favourable exchange rate movements together with higher prices and lower fuel consumption underpinned a 32.9% rise in EBITDA and a 31.7% jump in EBIT to Euro 97 million and Euro 83 million respectively.

Brazil - Transmission

The difficulties in finding available electricity in Argentina to export to Brazil due to gas supply restrictions had a negative impact on results at this interconnection, leading to an EBIT of Euro 21 million, Euro 33 million lower than in the same period last year.


Sales in the Peruvian generation business totalled Euro 218 million in the first nine months of 2005, 5.2% less than in the same period a year earlier. Effect of lower prices caused by improved rainfall was offset by a 23.2% increase in power generated.

Improved rainfall also drove a Euro 62 million decrease in fuel costs, contributing to a Euro 18 million rise both in EBITDA and EBIT to Euro 114 million and a Euro 87 million respectively.


Gas supply issues led to significant increases in fuel costs (+42.5%) due to the need to generate power using liquid fuels. As a result profitability fell even though generation sales volume increased. As a result of this, EBITDA and EBIT fell by 19.5% and 23.2% to Euro 70 million and Euro 53 million respectively.



EBITDA and EBIT in the Chilean distribution business rose 6.9% and 5.2% respectively, in the first nine months of the year.

These increases reflect the fact that growth in sales volume to meet higher demand is offsetting the squeeze Squeeze

EBITDA for the Colombian distribution business rose by 21.2% and EBIT by 24.0%.

, and, to a lesser extent, higher volumes of energy sold.

Sales growth easily outpaced cost increases, driving EBITDA to Euro 202 million and EBIT to Euro 152 million, representing an increase of 64.2% and 81.0%, respectively, on the same period last year.


EBITDA at the Peruvian distribution business in January-September 2005 amounted to Euro 54 million, 10.2% more than in January-September 2004. EBIT grew Euro 4 million (+14.3%).

Growth was driven by a 13.4% increase in sales on of first nine months of 2004 to Euro 220 million compared to an 11.9% rise in power purchases.

 distribution business fell by Euro 20 million and Euro 22 million, respectively, compared to the first nine months of 2004.

This was largely because the January-September 2004 figures included income of Euro 10 million corresponding to the compensation received from Alsthom due to the Azopardo supply incident. Higher costs, both power purchases and fixed costs, which were not offset by a corresponding increase in revenues ahead of the upcoming tariff hike - situation that might change in the future- accounted for the rest of the fall in earnings.

Financial strength: 23.7% improvement in financial results

Financial results for the electricity business in Latin America reflected a loss of Euro 290 million in the first nine months of 2005, Euro 90 million less than recorded in the same period of 2004.

Exchange rate differences were Euro 105 million higher, going from losses of Euro 33 million in January-September 2004 to gains of Euro 72 million in January-September 2005.

 decided to modify this paragraph, whereby translation differences are taken to reserves.

Until the EU authorities endorses this change, the previous version of IAS 21 remains in force in the IFRS adopted by the European Union European Union (EU), name given since the ratification (Nov., 1993) of the Treaty of European Union, or Maastricht Treaty, to the

European Community
. Depending on whether this change is endorsed and when it takes effect, if at all, the accounting of translation differences by ENDESA for 2005 could change.

The impact of these differences on ENDESA's net income as of 30 September 2005 was Euro 17 million.

Net financial expenses totalled Euro 362 million, Euro 15 million or 4.3% higher than in January-September 2004. This increase relates to the performance of the Euro with respect to the Latin American currencies and the dollar, which led to an increase in debt denominated in these currencies.

Net debt at ENDESA's Latin American business stood at Euro 6,237 million at 30 September 2005, an increase of Euro 887 million since the existing at the beginning of the year. The increase in net debt is due to the depreciation of the euro against the currencies in which the group's Latin American subsidiaries hold their debt, representing a total increase of Euro 873 million. Stripping out the impact of this depreciation, and taking account both the Euro 113 million dividends paid to the parent company, as well as the Euro 359 million capital reduction and dividends paid to third parties, the debt would have decreased Euro 458 million.

Enersis and Endesa Chile performance in financial markets

The strong business performance of ENDESA's Latin American business was reflected in the share prices performance of both Enersis and Endesa Chile - ENDESA's main subsidiaries - whose share prices have risen by 34% and 63% respectively, in the New York Stock Exchange, in the first nine months of 2005.

Two major rating agencies improved the credit rating outlook of both companies.

Cash flow: up 15.2%

Cash flow generated by the group's business in Latin America totalled Euro 766 million in the first nine months of 2005, an increase of 15.2% with respect to 2004.

Investments: Euro 512 million

Investments in the Latin American electricity business were Euro 512 million in the period January-September 2005. Of this sum, Euro 384 million was capex, broken down as follows:

The decrease in generation capex was due mainly to the completion of the construction of the Ralco hydroelectric plant Ralco Hydroelectric Plant is a hydroelectric power station in Bío-Bío Region, Chile. The plant uses water from the upper Bío-Bío River and produces 690MW of electricity.[1] The plant was builded by ENDESA in 2004.[1]

Optimisation of organisational structure

In the third quarter of 2005 ENDESA set up Endesa Brasil, S.A. At the end of October, this holding company's shareholders contributed all the assets owned by ENDESA in Brazil.

Also in the same month, an agreement was reached to merge See mail merge and concatenate.  Chilectra and Edesur, both of which were owned by Enersis, with stakes of 98.24% and 100%, respectively.

Transaction will be executed through the acquisition of Chilectra by Edesur and the operation forms part of the Group's strategy to simplify its corporate structure.

San Isidro II and Palmucho Plants Construction (Chile)

Endesa Chile plans to build a combined cycle plant using LNG LNG (liquefied natural gas): see under natural gas. . This facility, to be called San Isidro II, will have a total installed capacity of 377 MW.

In connection with this initiative, an EPC contract was signed by the Company with Mitsubishi Mitsubishi: see zaibatsu.  and the civil engineering plans are currently being drawn up.

The schedule envisages it coming on stream for open cycle plant operation with diesel in 2007, with capacity of 210 MW, moving to combined cycle diesel operation with capacity of 310MW in 2008 and to commercial operations fuelled by LNG once this arrives in Chile, currently scheduled for year 2009.

Endesa Chile started the construction of Palmucho, a 32 MW hydro power plant.

Strong EBITDA growth for the year 2005

According to current estimates, EBITDA for the business in Latin America will reach around Euro 1,750 million by year-end 2005, implying a 15% increase vs. 2004.

Because consolidated financial statements present an aggregated look at the financial position of a parent and its subsidiaries, they enable you to gauge

 (IFRS) endorsed by the European Union to date.

Under IFRS I, the date for transition to IFRS is January 1st, 2004. Therefore, figures for the third quarter of 2004 and to 31 December 2004 have also been drawn up under IFRS to facilitate comparisons. Therefore, they do not correspond to those presented in ENDESA's 2004 consolidated financial statements, which were prepared under Spanish GAAP GAAP

See: Generally Accepted Accounting Principles


See generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Under IFRS I, which regulates first-time adoption of IFRS, companies do not need to apply IAS 32 and 39 on financial instruments to figures from the 2004 financial statements presented for comparison purposes. ENDESA has taken up this option and 2004 figures therefore do not include the impact of IAS 32 and 39.

Note, however, that all references to balance sheet items "at 1 January 2005" or "at the start of 2005" refer to the information at 31 December 2004 adjusted for first-time application of IAS 32 and 39.

In order to facilitate investors and analysts with information regarding the effects of adopting IFRS, on 5 April 2005, the Company filed a press release containing the most significant adjustments made in transitioning from Spanish GAAP to IFRS and their implications.

The consolidated financial statements for 2005 and 2004 included in the annual accounts for 2005 must be prepared under the IFRS endorsed by the European Union as of 31 December 2005. Accordingly, any change in the rules endorsed by the European Union or interpretation of the same between now and the end of the year could lead to modifications in the consolidated financial statements as of 30 September 2005, although, given year-end is near, further significant changes to the accounts of ENDESA are not expected.
