Ellomay Capital Reports Publication of Financial Results of Dorad Energy Ltd. for the Three Months
Ended June 30, 2016
 
Ellomay Capital Currently Indirectly Holds Approximately 9.4% of Dorad Energy Ltd.
 
Tel-Aviv, Israel, August 24, 2016 – Ellomay Capital Ltd. (NYSE MKT; TASE: ELLO) (“Ellomay” or the “Company”), an emerging operator in the renewable energy and energy infrastructure sector, today reported the publication in Israel of financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2016 of Dorad Energy Ltd. (“Dorad”), in which Ellomay currently indirectly holds approximately 9.4%.

On August 16, 2016, Amos Luzon Entrepreneurship and Energy Group Ltd. (f/k/a U. Dori Group Ltd.) (the “Luzon Group”), an Israeli public company that currently holds 50% of U. Dori Energy Infrastructures Ltd. (“Dori Energy”), which, in turn, holds 18.75% of Dorad, published its quarterly report in Israel based on the requirements of the Israeli Securities Law, 1968. Based on applicable regulatory requirements, the quarterly report of the Luzon Group includes the financial statements of Dorad for the same period.

The financial results of Dori Energy and of Dorad for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. Ellomay will include its share of these results in its financial results for this period, which are currently expected to be published on or about September 18, 2016. In an effort to provide Ellomay’s shareholders with access to Dorad’s financial results (which were published in Hebrew), Ellomay hereby provides a convenience translation of the Dorad financial results.

Dorad Financial Highlights
 
· Dorad’s unaudited revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016 - approximately NIS 517 million (or approximately USD 134 million, based on the exchange rate on June 30, 2016).
 
· Dorad’s unaudited operating profit for the three months ended June 30, 2016 - approximately NIS 26 million (or approximately USD 7 million, based on the exchange rate on June 30, 2016).

Based on the information provided by Dorad, the demand for electricity by Dorad’s customers is seasonal and is affected by, inter alia, the climate prevailing in that season. The months of the year are split into three seasons as follows: the summer season – the months of July and August; the winter season - the months of December, January and February; and intermediate seasons – (spring and autumn), the months from March to June and from September to November. There is a higher hourly demand for electricity during the winter and summer seasons, and the average electricity consumption per hour is higher in these seasons than in the intermediate seasons and is even characterized by peak demands due to extreme climate conditions of heat or cold. In addition, Dorad’s revenues are affected by the change in load and time tariffs - TAOZ (an electricity tariff that varies across seasons and across the day in accordance with demand hour clusters), as, on average, TAOZ tariffs are higher in the summer season than in the intermediate and winter seasons. Therefore, the results presented, which include the winter and intermediate months of January to June are not indicative of full year results.

A translation of the financial results for Dorad as of and for the year ended December 31, 2015 and as of and for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2016 is included at the end of this press release. Ellomay does not undertake to separately report Dorad’s financial results in a separate press release in the future. Neither Ellomay nor its independent public accountants have reviewed or consulted with the Amos Luzon Entrepreneurship and Energy Group Ltd., Dori Energy or Dorad with respect to the financial results included in this press release.
