Medellin-based multinational electric-power grid operator ISA reported August 13 that its second quarter (2Q) 2018 net income dropped 16% year-on-year, to COP$232 billion (US$77.6 million).
 
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for 2Q 2018 likewise dropped 3.8% year-on-year, to COP$945 billion (US$316 million), according to the company.
 
As for first-half (1H) 2018 results, net income is up 2.3% year-on-year, to COP$530 billion (US$177 million), while 1H 2018 EBITDA rose 4% year-on-year, to COP$2 trillion (US$669 million).
 
“In the second quarter of 2018, there were no extraordinary events. However, for comparative purposes, it should be taken into account that in second quarter 2017, the [upward] adjustment of the value of the RBSE [power transmission network] in Brazil was included,” according to ISA.
 
“This factor generated net operating income of COP$359 billion [US$120 million], a deferred income tax of COP$122 billion [US$41 million] and net income of COP$85 billion [US$28 million). Because this was a non-recurring event, we will exclude it in the [current] analysis.”
 
The 1H 2018 profit results “include the recovery of taxes in Colombia and Brazil, the entry into operation of new energy transmission and roads projects in Peru, Colombia and Chile and the incorporation of the results of [recently added transmission networks] TAESA and IENNE,” according to ISA.
 
As for 2018 plans, ISA plans to invest COP$3.5 trillion (US$1.17 billion), “one of the highest in recent years,” with 92% of that in its electric energy transmission businesses, followed by 4.5% in its highway concessions and the remainder in information technology, telecom and systems management, according to the company.
