The main factors which affected the dynamics of the financial indicators:

-    revenue from power transmission increased due to capacity transmission tariffs indexation starting from July 1, 2020 by 5.5% and increase of volume of services provided as result of electricity consumption recovery.

-    decrease in revenue from technological connection services is associated with the service schedule determined by customers' applications.

-    increase in revenue from construction services is due to a change in the percentage of completion of work at different stages of construction of projects implemented by subsidiaries of Federal Grid Company under general contracting agreements.

-    increase of operating expenses due to commissioning of new capacities (increase of depreciation by RUB 2.3 billion), increase of electricity consumption (growth of expenses for electricity purchased for losses compensation by RUB 3.3 billion due to increase in volume losses and higher weighted average price for the electricity purchased for production needs) and increase in expenses on construction projects commensurate with an increase in revenue (by RUB 1.0 billion).
