In Q4 2016 the FX differences on the EUR denominated debt led to a decrease of TAURON Group's gross financial result by PLN 16 m (no impact on EBITDA),

- setting up a provision in the amount of PLN 55 m for the payment of a one-time bonus to the workforce (including in the following segments: Mining: PLN 14 m, Generation: PLN 11 m, Distribution: PLN 23 m, Supply PLN 1 m, Other PLN 6 m),

- increasing the provision due to potential fees related to the transmission easement by PLN 26 m (Distribution segment),

- increasing the actuarial provisions due to the past service cost by PLN 17 m (Mining segment),

- increasing the provision due to a potential increase of the property tax related to grid assets by PLN 27 m (Distribution segment),

c)   dissolving a part of the provision in the amount of PLN 14 m as a contribution towards potential penalties imposed by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office (Distribution segment).
