  • Today, in an extraordinary general meeting, new financial targets were established for Vattenfall. The company also presented its new sustainability targets. For example renewable energy growth rates should be higher than the market.
  • The current Head of Vattenfall's Media Relations, Ivo Banek, has been appointed to lead the company's External Relations & Communication (ER&C). Ivo Banek is starting in his new position as from now.
  • Vattenfall's owner, the Swedish state, announces new proposed financial targets for the company. The new targets will be decided at an Extraordinary General Meeting on 28 November 2012.
  • Vattenfall has initiated the procedure for approval of decommissioning and dismantling with the approval authority, the Ministry of Energy, agriculture, environment and rural areas in Schleswig-Holstein/Germany.
  • Vattenfall's Business Unit Trading has started trading the Czech gas market. The company trades physical gas contracts on the OTE market platform (the Czech electricity and gas market operator) and over-the-counter at the Virtual Trading Point in Czech Republic. In addition, Vattenfall engages in cross border gas trading between Czech Republic and Germany.
  • Vattenfall is reporting an underlying operating profit for the nine-month period 2012 that is nearly on par with 2011 for continuing operations – despite a challenging market. The industry is under continuous pressure from overcapacity, low prices and low margins, especially for electricity generation based on natural gas. Vattenfall has therefore recognized impairment losses of SEK 8.6 billion for the book value of goodwill and production assets in the Thermal Power business unit during the third quarter.
