Filing of the 2015 Reference Document - Annual Financial Report
Paris, 29 April 2016. EDF's reference document for the 2015 fiscal year was filed today with the French financial markets authority ( Autorité des marchés financiers ).
The following documents are included in the reference document:
· the 2015 annual financial report ;
· the report of the Chairman of the Board of Directors pursuant to Article L. 225-37 of the French Commercial Code (included in section 4.7);
· the information regarding the fees of the statutory auditors (included in section 6.5);
· a description of the share buyback program (included in section 7.3.2).
EDF raises attention to section 220.127.116.11.2 « Operation and technical performance of the nuclear fleet - Investment programme for the existing nuclear fleet in France » of the reference document. In particular, the optimisation work undertaken in 2015 has already led to a downward revision of the initial estimate of the « Grand carénage » investment programme, initially set at € 2013 55 billion, to €51 billion nominal over the 2014-2025 period, which represents a € 2013 9 billion reduction. In its report of February 2016 covering a longer time period until 2030, the French Cour des comptes estimated those investments at € 2013 74.73 billion, including € 2013 20 billion dedicated to the 2026-2030 period, thus allowing the costing established by EDF group and the Cour des comptes to be matched.
The reference document is available on EDF website at http://finance.edf.com , under the " Financial information " section. Copies of the reference document are also available at the company's head office located at 22-30 avenue de Wagram (75008 Paris).
