Sales are the total amount of EDF‘s products and services sales. They are mostly composed of energy, transport and distribution services sales, in France and abroad.
The EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) is equal to the balance of sales and cash operating charges (buys, personnel expenses, taxes). This indicator measures the company's ability to be self-financing.
Consolidated sales rose by 11.4%, with organic growth of 5.8%, to reach €72.7 billion in 2012. Sales growth resulted from organic growth of €3,765 million and, to a smaller degree, the effects of changes in the scope of consolidation (+€2,983 million) and exchange rates (+€674 million, principally reflecting the pound sterling's rise against the Euro).
Consolidated EBITDA for 2012 amounted to €16,084 million, up by 7.7% from 2011, corresponding to organic growth of 4.6%. The foreign exchange effects amounting to +€154 million resulted from the favourable movements by the pound sterling against the Euro. Changes in the scope of consolidation had an effect of +€309 million, principally concerning Edison.
