Commenting the results for 3Q 2016, Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin said:

“In 3Q 2016 the environment on the commodity markets remained difficult. Additional pressure on the company’s profitability was from considerable negative export duty lag effect. I would like to highlight positive results of Rosneft’s management cost control and generation of positive free cash flow over the last years in conditions of high market volatility. This is a unique achievement among the peers. In October the Company acquired the state-owned stake in Bashneft. We will make our best efforts to maximize the synergy potential from this asset integration. The first important steps on its realization are being conducted already at early consolidation stage in 4Q 2016.”

Financial performance

Total revenue and equity share in profits of associates and joint ventures

In 3Q 2016 revenue amounted to RUB 1,223 bln (USD 19.4 bln). Despite lower crude oil price in RUB terms revenues did not change significantly compared to 2Q 2016 as a result of higher oil production, crude oil processing and maximizing supply to premium channels.

For 9M 2016 revenues declined by 11.4% compared to 9M 2015 mostly due to lower oil prices:  average Urals price was at $40 for 9M 2016 vs. $54.6 for 9M 2015.

EBITDA

The Company keeps strengthening its OPEX discipline: upstream operating expenses per boe remained unchanged compared to 2Q 2016 and amounted to RUB 164/boe (USD 2.5/boe) in 3Q 2016.

In 3Q 2016, the earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) reached RUB 292 bln (USD 4.5 bln), EBITDA margin - 23.3%. EBITDA margin was negatively impacted by customs duty lag. As a result of significant growth in oil prices in 2Q 2016, the base for export duty materially increased while average pricing level remained almost unchanged in 3Q 2016. This translated into a negative effect on the profitability at around RUB 60 bln.  

In 9M 2016, EBITDA amounted to RUB 913 bln (USD 13.5 bln), declining only by 5.6% YoY despite a significant negative impact of external factors (lower ruble oil price - RUB 27 bln, additional tax burden related mainly to the tax maneuver - RUB 119 bln). 9M 2016 EBITDA margin increased up to 25.4% (1.3 bp growth vs 9M 2015) thanks to strong cost control and increased sales efficiency.

Net income attributable to Rosneft shareholders

In 3Q 2016, the Company net profit was at RUB 26 bln. The decline was primarily driven by lower operating profit.

CAPEX

CAPEX in 3Q 2016 increased by 8.4% up to RUB 167 bln (USD 2.6 bln) which was driven by planned growth of volume of production drilling.

9M 2016 CAPEX increased 16.1% Y-o-Y. Upstream CAPEX grew by 33.9%, mainly driven by increased volume of drilling and workovers and intensive development of new projects.

Free cash flow

Free cash flow amounted to RUB 48 bln (USD 1.3 bln) in 3Q 2016 and to RUB 189 bln (USD 4.1 bln) in 9M 2016. The Company keeps generating sustainably positive free cash flows despite quite volatile market conditions.

Debt burden

Since October 2015, gross debt of the Company went down by 2.5% in dollar terms, while net debt equaled USD 26.1 bln. In 3Q 2016 the Company paid off eurobonds (USD 1 bln of total nominal value) issued by the former TNK-BP Group in 2006.
