The indexes below describe the Company’s solvency and liquidity as of January 1, 2007:
The accounts receivable vs. accounts payable ratio was 1.04 for TGC-1 at the end of 2006.
The financial standing of TGC-1 is deemed “satisfactory”.
In determining the financial standing of the Company, we employed JSC RAO “UES of Russia” Methodology used to assess the financial condition of TGC-1 for the purposes of awarding a credit rating.
As of January 1, 2007, the Company’s accounts receivable were down RUR 87.6 million from the beginning of 2006, totaling RUR 3,839.9 million, including: resale agents for electricity and heat (RUR 260.2 million), other accounts receivable (RUR 3,579.7 million), including advances paid (RUR 277.6 million) etc.
