MANAGING DIRECTOR'S INTRODUCTION Ladies and Gentlemen, Let me present you with our results for the year 2013 which was very successful for PBS ENERGO, a.s. We managed to take advantage of the soon-to-expire legislation supporting power plants and heating plants burning biomass and residues of agricultural crops. We successfully designed, manufactured and commissioned three turbo-sets. The first turbo-set is installed in a bio power plant for burning straw located in Mostek near Dvůr Králové, and it features a condensing extraction turbine with maximum power on generator terminals of 5.4 MW. Another condensing extraction turbo-set of 1.7 MW now generates electricity in Návsí, the Frýdek-Místek District. In this case, the set is fuelled by wood chips. The third turbine – a steam back-pressure turbine of 1.1 MW – has been installed in the Mariánské Lázně Heating Plant. We successfully commissioned all three turbines within the required time-limits. In the first two cases we delivered a complete turbo-set including the accessories and the condensing part, while the third delivery consisted only of the turbo-set. Due to the subsidies of biomass electricity prices coming to an end in the Czech Republic, it was necessary to expand our business abroad. We succeeded in securing a very significant contract with a Hungarian chemical plant Nitrogenmüvek, which involves a turn-key delivery of a turbocharger. We continue to strengthen our position in the market with spare parts. In cooperation with our current business partners we are acquiring new customers – companies from Russia and the former Soviet Union countries. We support our foreign business activities by actively presenting ourselves at renowned energy industry trade-fairs RUSSIA POWER and POWER GEN. You may have seen us and our stalls in Vienna, Moscow or Orlando, USA, where we established many promising liaisons. In 2013, as every year, we successfully passed all certifications in the field of quality and environment management systems.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped us to achieve the 2013 results – the company employees as well as our business partners.

I am confident that we can continue with the positive trend in 2014 and that we will achieve our ambitious objectives through collective effort of all employees and the company management.

• Information about significant facts which occurred after the balance sheet day No significant facts occurred after the balance sheet day.

• Expected development of the accounting entity's activities With the modification of the state subsidy policy in the field of ecological waste processing to be expected, the development activities in the area of ORC units for energy utilisation of low-potential waste heat will continue. Increase in output range of axial steam back-pressure and condensing turbines.

• Activities in the area of research and development In 2013 the company invested approx. CZK 2.3 mil. in the field of research and development of the small-size turbine stage in cooperation with Výzkumný a zkušební letecký ústav, a.s. (Aerospace Research and Test Establishment). The company was granted a subsidy for this area of research and development in the amount of CZK 541 thousand.

• Activities in the area of environment protection and employment-related matters The activities in the area of environment protection include the continuous reduction in the impacts – for example the formerly introduced dripping collecting basins, the provision of the emergency set, or the inspections of compliance with the operating regulations, to name just a few. The records of the chemical substances and preparations, as well as the handling of the chemicals, are periodically inspected. Separation of waste has been a matter of course since the establishment of the company. The company is not listed as a source of air pollution for the external surroundings.


In the area of employment-related matters, the company has an extensive agenda: for example it arranges for canteen meals and provides subsidy to its employees amounting to 55% of the lunch price; it contributes to pension schemes and life insurance in the amount of up to CZK 2 thousand per month; it awards financial bonuses on the occasion of significant personal anniversaries; it arranges the cleaning of work clothes for the employees, at its own expenses; and it also enables the employees to work flexible working hours.
