Going concern

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared based on the assumption that the major companies of the Group will continue as a going concern for a period of at least 12 months from the reporting date. As at December 31, 2020, the subsidiary PGE Obrót S.A. shows negative values of equity, which is mainly the result of negative changes on the regulated retail electricity trading market. PGE Obrót S.A. – like the other PGE Group companies – has access to financing provided by PGE S.A., therefore the going concern assumption for this company is justified.

Apart from the issue concerning PGE Obrót S.A., as at the date of authorisation of these financial statements for publication, no circumstances were identified which would indicate any threat to the major PGE Group companies continuing as going concerns.
