Message from the Administration


Statement from the most senior decisionmaker of the organization (e.g., CEO, chair, or equivalent senior position) about the relevance of sustainability to the organization and its strategy.

Once again, we ended the year that the task was completed, adding value to our shareholders, and through our actions, reaffirming our role as a consolidator company in the Brazilian electricity sector.

We knew we would have challenges in 2013 in view of the tariff revision of Cemig Distribuição and the decrease in our transmission revenues due to compensation criteria established in MP 579, as well as the expiration of the 1st concession period of our Jaguara power plant, which we will have to discuss extending for an additional period, as provided for in our concession contract. However, despite these challenges, we made a profit of over R$ 3.1 billion in 2013. Although there was a profit of R$ 4.3 billion in the previous year, which would indicate a decrease in our performance, we should note that the profits of the previous year were the result of an extraordinary event, the early settlement of the CRC contract. Excluding this non-recurring event, our performance has improved over the previous year, which indicates Cemig’s continued growth. These results represent an earnings per share of R$ 2.47, where we paid R$ 4.6 billion in dividends in 2013 resulting in a dividend yield of 9.9%. With lower interest rates expected over the long term, these figures reported by Cemig make our actions an investment with an attractive return for our thousands of shareholders.

Despite the good results, our actions in 2013 were further affected by regulatory uncertainties in the electricity sector due to the effects of MP 579 and the capital outflow from emerging markets including Brazil in pursuit of bonds with a perceived lower risk, especially government bonds from the United States. Even in this unfavorable scenario, our common shares showed a positive variation of 4.0% and preferred shares fell 0.2% in 2013, compared to drops in the Ibovespa and the Electricity Sector Index of 15.50% and 8.83% respectively.

With regard to new investments, a number of significant events occurred for our Company in 2013.  A highlight in the renewable energy area is the acquisition of 51% of Brasil PCH, an investment of R$ 740 million, and an investment agreement that will give Cemig GT, our wholly owned subsidiary, a controlling stake in Renova Energia, which will enable this Company to implement a significant investment program in the coming years and consolidate our position as one of the major participants among Brazilian conglomerates in the renewable energy market.

We would also like to highlight the partnership with Vale S.A. to generate assets through a new company called Aliança Geração de Energia S.A., which was created with combined assets of over R$ 4 billion. With this partnership, we increase the potential to generate new business and maximize results in the energy generation area through the combination of experience in operational, financial, and project management.

In the energy distribution area, Cemig Distribuição reported R$ 884 million in investments in 2013, with investments of R$ 3.7 billion planned for the period between 2013 and 2017.

We also want to emphasize our commitment to society by improving the quality and reliability of service to our customers. The duration of service interruptions of Cemig Distribuição customers as calculated through the DEC Index was 12.49 hours in 2013 compared to 14.74 hours in 2012, an improvement of 15.26%. Moreover, the frequency of interruptions as measured by the FEC, which was already below the minimum levels required by the Regulatory Agency, also improved going from 7.04 interruptions in 2012 to 6.26 in 2013, an improvement of 11.08%.

Growth, consistent financial results, and commitment to providing our customers with quality service represent the materialization of our strategic vision, based on principles of sustainability and social responsibility, which is also evident by Cemig being selected for the 14th consecutive year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

Cemig was also selected in 2013 to be part of the UN Global Compact Index, the Global Compact 100 (GC100), which lists a hundred global companies committed to corporate sustainability linked to better performance in capital markets. This form of action demonstrates Cemig’s commitment to aligning its strategy with the principles of the Global Compact agreement.

In 2014, there will be major challenges once again for our Company and the Brazilian electricity sector. The low reservoir levels of power plants in late 2013 and early 2014 increased energy prices in the wholesale market to above R$ 800.00/Mwh putting pressure on the cash flow of distribution companies because of the significant cost of purchasing energy. This situation makes it essential for the federal government and regulatory bodies to provide support in building solutions to maintain the economic-financial balance of companies in the sector and enable the settlement of transactions between electric distribution and generation companies.

In this scenario, the rainfall in the coming months in comparison with the historical averages will be a factor in determining energy policy and prices for 2014.

Also, the Soccer World Cup will be held in 2014. The electricity sector has an important role to play in this world-level event by supplying reliable power during the period of the games.

Before ending, we would like to thank our employees, whose professional expertise is recognized nationwide. It is the commitment, expertise, and talent of all our collaborators that make Cemig “the best energy company in Brazil”.

Our results were only possible with the support of all company shareholders, who we would like thank for their support and trust throughout the year.
