Glow posts record high full year 2014 results.

- Normalized Net Profit increases 20% year-on-year, reaching a record high at THB 9.7 billion.

For the fiscal year 2014, Glow Group (“Glow”) posted:

For the fourth quarter of 2014, Glow Group (“Glow”) posted:
- Consolidated total revenue of THB 17,496 million,
- Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”), excluding adjustments for Financial Lease accounting, of THB 4,633 million,

Excellent performance of both the Cogen and the IPP business line

Brendan Wauters, CEO of Glow, commented: “Our record full year results confirm the trends we have observed throughout the year. In our Cogen business line, we have seen year-on-year volume growth of 8% and 4% for power and steam respectively, and a generally robust margin environment. In our IPP business line, the outstanding availability of our coal-fired Gheco-One plant, and the higher dispatch of our HHPC hydro plant in Laos have been key drivers of earnings growth. Glow remains committed to operational excellence and to value creation through disciplined investments, and we believe our 2014 results reflect the success of that strategy.”
