2017, an Operational Excellence Year

Brendan Wauters, CEO of Glow, commented: "When comparing our NNP for 2017, at THB 8.7 billion, with our financial performance in the previous year,one needs to take into consideration that 2017 has been a particularly maintenance-intensive year. Post-outage availability levels have been excellent across our fleet. We continue to reap the benefit from our "SmartSave 2018" Program, which focuses on the optimization of our procurement activities and on identifying other "smart" savings in operating costs. Our interest expenses are also down substantially year-on-year, and we continue to use the strength of our balance sheet (TRIS has recently upgraded our rating to AA-) to raise funds at very attractive conditions. Finally, it is worth mentioning that 2017 was a record year in terms of sales of electricity and steam to our industrial customers: we sold 5.3 TWh and 7,885 ktonnes of electricity and steam respectively, and in each case, those are the highest sales volumes we have ever recorded."

Total dividend proposed at 5.75 THB/share for the third consecutive year

Pajongwit Pongsivapai, CFO of Glow, commented: "The Board of Directors has approved a total dividend for fiscal year 2017 at 5.75 THB/share, which is at the same level as in 2015 and 2016. Such dividend will be submitted for shareholders' approval during the Annual General Meeting at the end of April. The total dividend is comprised of an interim dividend of 1.531 THB/share, which was already paid in September 2017, and a year-end dividend of 4.219 THB/share, which will be paid after shareholders' approval. The total dividend can be broken down into two components: an ordinary dividend of 3.826 THB/share (this represents a 5% increase in ordinary dividend), and a special dividend of 1.924 THB/share."
