Hordur Arnarson, the CEO:
"In the year 2013, Landsvirkjun's energy generation and sales reached new highs in the company's history with 13,186 GWh sold, an increase by 416 GWh from the previous year. The operation was successful and for the most part incident-free. Operating revenues, EBITDA and profit before unrealised financial items increased during the year.
Despite the positive results of electric power sales in a difficult market environment there was a loss on Landsvirkjun's operation last year. The reason for the loss can be traced to the decrease in world market aluminium prices, which among others is reflected in the significant decrease in the carrying amount of embedded derivatives, on which the company can have limited effects."
