CEO comments

Dear shareholders

the first year of operations for EOS Russia was an eventful one. EOS Russia was successfully listed on First North, a marketplace operated by OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm (OMX), and raised MUSD 423* in capital through several placements. The company began operations in May 2007.

We chose to set-up EOS Russia as an investment company with a listing of its shares in order to offer an accessible, liquid and transparent way to invest in the ongoing reform of the Russian power sector. During the year we have strengthened the organization in many aspects. We now intend to seek admission to OMX Nordic Exchange Stock- holm during 2008, a decision which we believe will further increase the liquidity in EOS’ shares. We will also continue to provide the market with a clear valuation benchmark by publishing our net asset value on a frequent basis.

Our head office is located in Stockholm and houses the CEO, the CFO, the head of risk and compliance and inves- tor relations. We opened our Cyprus office in Limassol dur- ing the fall, which is where we conduct all our investment activities and all trading in Russian power utility shares.

Lauri Sillantaka, our head of research is employed in Cyprus and in addition we recruited a trader during the year to execute all investment decisions.

The reform of the Russian electricity industry moves ahead at a fast pace and we see the climate for investments becoming increasingly attractive. The rapid growth in the Russian economy since the ruble devaluation in 1998 has led to a high increase in demand for electricity consump- tion, whereas the industry has seen little investment. As a consequence, Russia experienced the first shortages of elec- tricity in 2006-2007 and with continued economic growth and demand for electricity, the shortage of electricity capac- ity risks becoming a bottle-neck for the Russian economy.

To create an attractive climate for private investments, the government initiated the reform of the electricity industry already in 2000. The restructuring of UES (Unified Energy Systems of Russia), the state-controlled utility holding com- pany, and the introduction of wholesale prices of electricity are important parts of the reform.

We believe that the ongoing industry restructuring and gradual price liberalization creates an opportunity for a revaluation of our assets. We have already seen an increase in wholesale electricity prices and as electricity prices con- tinue to be liberalized, we expect these increases to continue and reach levels where new investments become profitable.

Starting out from a low price level we are confident that Rus- sian industry, which consumes more than 70% of the elec-

tricity in Russia, will be able to absorb these price increases.

In its current form UES would not have been able to finance the massive investments required for the coming decades. Hence in order to channel private investments into the sector, the government is on track to break up UES. UES has majority shareholdings in most utility companies in Russia controlling around 75% of the total industry capacity within generation, distribution, supply and repair and has full control over the grid. The break-up of UES is scheduled for July 2008 and shareholders will receive proportional holdings in the underlying assets.

Currently, the subsidiaries of UES are trading at higher valuations than UES and the break-up is expected to result in a release of hidden values and a revaluation of EOS assets.

Furthermore the underlying assets have lower valuations than emerging market peers, especially in certain sub-sec- tors, such as distribution.

Strategic interest in electricity generation companies in Russia is high and we believe that there is hidden value which can be extracted through in-depth industry knowl- edge. In this regard, we believe that we possess industry ex- pertise which is hard to replicate: Seppo Remes, our Chair- man of the Board, is a long-standing member of the Board of Directors of UES and is also on the board of a number of spun-off utility companies. He brings unique sector experi- ence and a wide contact network to the table. Our head of research, Lauri Sillantaka, previously head of research and top-ranked utility analyst at Troika Dialog investment bank, brings a wealth of capital markets and utility sector knowl- edge as well as strong valuation expertise.

Electricity sector investments are vital for the continued growth of the Russian economy. Throughout 2007, major in- ternational players have acquired stakes in various electrici- ty generation companies in Russia. Italian utility Enel gained majority control of OGK-5 and Finland’s Fortum recently acquired a stake in TGK-10, signifying the value that strate- gic investors see in the sector. This trend is set to continue in 2008 and onwards, and EOS will actively participate in the reorganization of the sector. We believe that UES is the cheapest entry into the sector and therefore our investment portfolio is more than 90% invested into UES.

2008 promises to be an exciting year for both EOS and the Russian utility sector, where the most important milestone is the break-up of UES. While the world economy is in an uncertain phase, the Russian electricity sector offers strong investment opportunities which we have a unique position to benefit from.

EOS Russia

EOS Russia was founded in May 2007 in order to capitalize on investment opportunities arising as a result of the dereg- ulation, restructuring and privatization of the Russian elec- tricity industry. A comprehensive reform program is gradu- ally being implemented until 2011, affecting all elements of the sector: structure, ownership and electricity pricing. The reason for the reform is the considerable investment need that has emerged as a result of rapidly increasing electricity demand. EOS Russia utelises the expertise, experience and network that the founders possess to identifiy investment opportunities within the power sector.

Strategic focus for 2008

Continue growing the capital base by means of additio-

nal cash issues and issues in kind and hence become a larger shareholder in UES (Unified Energy Systems of Russia) up until its break-up in 2008.

Through EOS Russia’ management expertise, benefit

from the opportunities offered by the valuation ineffi- ciencies among the Russian utility universe and create an attractive portfolio.

Risk and risk management

The board of directors of EOS AB is ultimately responsible for management of risks to which EOS Russia is exposed.

EOS Russia’s investment strategy is implemented by EOS Ltd, based on Cyprus, through which our investments are made and owned. EOS Ltd makes all investment decisions within the framework set by the parent. This means that the board of EOS Ltd, will, based on recommendations from the Head of Research, make decisions about sale and purchase of Russian shares within the electricity sector. The execution of decisions made by the board of EOS Ltd will be carried out by the trader, or, either a director or employee on the mandate of the board of EOS Ltd.

(9)

EOS Russia has assessed its risk exposure with the objective to:

Identify key risks

Ensure that management has controls in place

Allocate unecessary staff resources to risk management

The major risks were defined to be financial risk and coun- try and sector specific risk. The financial risk includes price risks, interest rate risk, liquidity risk and credit risk.

Through the chosen investment strategy EOS Russia has a high exposure to country-specific risk factors for Russia, such as for example political, economiclegal and legal risks.

In addition, EOS Russia is exposed to risks associated only investing in the Russian electricity sector. The investment strategy also means an initial high exposure to UES. While these risks are high for EOS Russia, they are also part of its business concept.

EOS Russia depends on the continued services and performance of our founders, management and other key personnel.

Through its operations, the Group is exposed to various types of financial risks, which are assessed and monitored by EOS Russia on a daily basis, see Note 19. Price risk is the risk that the fair value of or future cash flow from a financial instrument will vary due to changes in market prices. In EOS Russia’s operations share-price risk (other price risk) and exchange-rate risk are the most important price risks.

Share-price risk is the risk that the fair value of our future cash flows from a share will vary due to changes in mar- ket prices. Share-price risk is a central risk in the Group’s operations, since these consist of making investments in various forms of shares and share-based derivatives in the Russian stock market with a specific focus on the Russian electricity sector. Share prices of shares held in the portfo- lio will fluctuate. This risk is part of EOS Russia’s business concept and will not be hedged.

Exchange-rate risk is the risk that exchange-rate fluctua- tions may have a negative impact on our income statement, balance sheet and/or cash-flow.

EOS Russia’s exchange-rate risks largely derive from translation exposure that arises from recalculation of a foreign subsidiary’s assets and liabilities (USD) to EOS AB’s functional currency (SEK), known as recalculation exposure. EOS Russia also has certain limited exposure in the Russian ruble (RUB) in respect of those shares that are priced and traded in RUB. Translation-related exposure is not hedged.

Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows from a financial instrument will vary due to changes in market interest rates and for EOS Russia’s opera- tions, the interest rate risk arises when surplus liquidity is

rate risk also arises when EOS Russia finances operations by leveraging the stock portfolio. These interest rate risks are generally low, because the holding period is generally short in respect of investments in interest-bearing securities and is very short in respect of temporary leveraging of the stock portfolio.

Liquidity risk is the risk that EOS Russia will be affected negatively by inefficient handling and control of cash and payment flows, in part because investments only can be converted to liquid funds with certain loss of value or time.

EOS Russia primary source of liquidity consists of the proceeds that we have received in connection with previous share issues.

Credit risk is the risk that a party to a financial instru- ment cannot fulfill an obligation and thereby causes a financial loss for the counterparty. Credit risk can arise if EOS Russia enters into derivative agreements and in certain cases if EOS Russia invests temporary liquidity surpluses in interest-bearing securities. In EOS AB, credit risks mainly arise in connection with short-term lending to the subsidi- ary and with other current receivables from subsidiaries.

Accordingly, due to the focus of the operations, the credit risk that arises is limited.

Investment portfolio in securities

During the period May-October 2007 EOS Russia raised a total of approximately SEK 2,879 million or MUSD (432*) in several placements. On the balance sheet date EOS Russia’s investment portfolio consisted of approximately 81% shares or depositary receipts in UES. The remaining 19% consisted of holdings in wholesale generation companies (OGKs), territorial generation companies (TGKs) and other types of companies within the Russian electricity industry. For more information about the portfolio structure, please see note 19.

UES is a holding company, which together with its subsidiaries is the largest power company in Russia. UES principal business is the generation, transmission, distribu- tion and supply of electricity in Russia. In 2007, it generated approximately 70% of electricity output and approximately 33% of heat output in Russia. As of December 31, 2006, UES had approximately 72.1% of the installed electric capacity in Russia and, as of December 31, 2007, approximately 33% of Russia’s total installed heat capacity. It also owns approxi- mately 96% of the total length of Russia’s electric transmis- sion lines.

UES today has direct and indirect ownership as well as in most cases control of the regional and other individual power plants in Russia (OGKs and TGKs). The Federal Grid company, which owns and operates Russia’s high-voltage network is currently a wholly-owned subsidiary of UES.

The key strategic goals and objectives pursued by UES in

(10)

Russian electricity sector, are to attract massive investment in the electricity industry and create the conditions for raising private capital, to create a competitive market for electricity, to increase the efficiency of power utilities, to allow end-users to select an electricity supplier, to expand the market share of UES’ entities on the heat and electricity markets, to develop and implement a fair and transpar- ent system of regulation for power grid companies, and to improve its own and its subsidiaries’ corporate governance system.

The restructuring of UES will be finalized mid-2008 when all companies of the intended final sector structure will be spun off from UES, consisting of OGKs, a Russian hydro company (RusHydro), TGKs, Inter-regional distribution companies (MRSKs), the Holding MRSK, the Federal Grid Company, InterRAO and the Far Eastern Power Company.

According to the reform concept of the Russian electric- ity industry, generation, sales/retail and repair and service companies are to be privatized and operate in open and competitive markets. In contrast, the state is to increase its control over transmission and distribution.

Proposal for resolution at the annual general meeting 2008 regarding guidelines for remuneration and other terms of employment for the group management The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves on guidelines for remuneration and other terms of employment for the chief executive officer and other members of management for the time up until the next annual general meeting, which provide that the management shall be offered remuneration and other terms of employment in line with market practice. The total remu- neration may consist of the following components: (i) fixed remuneration; (ii) variable remuneration; and (iii) sever- ance pay following the company’s liquidation. No pension benefits shall be paid and no share related program shall be adopted. As regards the variable remuneration (bonus), this may amount to not more than 100 per cent of the fixed salary.

The board of directors may, in special circumstances and for specific individuals, decide to deviate from the guidelines.

Outlook

EOS Russia invests in the Russian electricity industry that currently is undergoing a reform process. The restructuring of the electricity sector, of which the restructuring of UES is a vital part, is aiming at a liberalization of generation and supply until 2011, whereas transmission and distribution will remain regulated monopolies.

The reformation process affects the structure, ownership and electricity pricing within the sector.

The main goals are to:

increase the efficiency of the existing energy companies

create an attractive climate for private investments

By mid 2008 UES will be broken up into different compa- nies, and its underlying subsidiaries will be distributed to UES’ shareholders. EOS Russia believes that the companies will receive a greater and fairer valuation as separated enti- ties compared with what they receive in the current holding structure of UES.

Dividends

EOS Russia’s main objective is to generate shareholder value by investing in Russian electricity sector assets until 2012. EOS Russia plans to reinvest capital gains. According to EOS AB’s Balance Sheet, the funds available for distri- bution by the Annual General Meeting amounts to SEK 2,533,175 thousand, of which SEK 68 thousand is net profit for the year. The board of directors and the CEO of EOS AB proposes that no dividends be distributed and that all funds available for distribution be carried forward of which share premium reserve is SEK 2,533,107 thousand.

Notes to the financial statements

Note 1 Accounting policies

Accordance with accounting standards and legal requirements

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in ac- cordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and interpretations announced by the Inter- national Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (IFRIC), as approved by the EC Commission for application within the EU. In addition, the Swedish Financial Account- ing Standards Council’s standard RR 30:06, Supplementary Accounting Regulations for Groups is applied.

The Company applies the same accounting principles as the Group, except in the cases stated below in the section

“Company accounting principles”. The deviations that occur between the accounting policies of the Company and the Group is attributable to limitations to apply IFRS in EOS AB due to the Annual Accounts Act, in certain cases for tax reasons. The Annual Report and consolidated accounts were approved for publication by the Board of Directors on March 28, 2008. The Group’s income statement and balance sheet and EOS AB’s income statement and balance sheet are subject to approval by the Annual General Meeting on April 22, 2008.

The basis of measurement for establishing the financial reports of the Company and the Group Assets and liabilities are measured at historical cost, except for some financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value. Financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value are derivatives, shares and participations.

Functional currency and reporting currency The Company’s reporting currency is Swedish kronor , which is also the reporting currency of the Group. This means that the financial statements are presented in Swed- ish kronor. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are rounded off to the nearest thousand SEK. By rounding the numbers in tables, totals may not always equal the sum of the included rounded numbers.

Assessments and estimates in the financial statements

Preparation of the financial reports in accordance with IFRS requires that the Group management makes assessments and estimates and also makes assumptions that affect the application of the accounting policies and the recognised

amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. The actual outcome may deviate from these assessments and estimates.

The assessments and assumptions are reviewed regularly.

Changes in estimates are reported in the period when the change is made if the change only affects this period, or in the period when the change is made and future periods if the change affects the period in question and future periods.

(i) Significant assessments in applying the Group’s accounting principles

The assessments made by Group management in applying the Group’s accounting principles that have the most signifi- cant influence on the financial statements are as follows:

The instruments that have the legal form of preference

shares and that are issued by subsidiaries and related payment do not comprise equity instruments, instead their financial implication is as a liability where the rela- ted payments consequently are allocated expenses in the income statement and are not treated as dividends.

The preference share payments that relate to the group’s

net assets do not represent payments on derivatives.

The payments that relate to EOS Ltd’s net assets do not

represent payments on derivatives.

Part of EOS Russia’s investment portfolio comprises sha-

res that, according to the assessment of Group manage- ment, do not have prices quoted on an active market.

In the evaluation of preference share related remunera-

tion, no consideration is given to valuation consequences of future share issues. Valuation only takes into account issues completed on the balance-sheet date.

(ii) Important sources of uncertainty in estimates The important sources of uncertainty in estimates made that carry a significant risk of a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the next finan- cial year are as follows:

Estimates of the fair value of shares and participations

that are not listed on an active market

The calculation of liabilities, provisions and the related

expenses for share-related remuneration. This uncerta- inty is primarily related to uncertainty in the assumption on volatility that is dependent on, for example, the struc- ture of the future asset portfolio.

(21)

Estimates used in the calculation of provisions for

certain remuneration to preference shareholders are dependent on the trend in the Group’s net assets, which in turn is dependent on such factors as the trend in the value of the underlying share.

New IFRS and interpretations not yet applied A number of new standards, changes in standards and statements of interpretation issued by the IASB and IFRIC apply from 2008 or later. These have not been applied in the preparation of these financial statements and EOS Russia does not foresee future early application.

The revised IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements, will be effective from 2009. An assessment into the effect that this standard will have on EOS Russia’s financial state- ments has not yet been performed.

IFRS 8 Operating Segments, effective from 2009, defines what an operating segment is and specifies which dis- closures are to be made about segments in the financial statements. EOS Russia is assessed as having one operating segment and the introduction of the standard will have no effect on EOS Russia’s financial statements.

IFRIC 11 IFRS 2: Group and Treasury Share Transactions explains how a transaction settled with equity instruments shall be classified in the entity that receives the services of employees. The interpretation is applicable from 2008. This statement is assessed as having no future effect on EOS Rus- sia’s financial statements.

Other new or changed standards and interpretations that are assessed as having no future effect on the financial statements of EOS Russia follow: Revised IFRS 3 Busi- ness Combinations and IAS 27 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements (effective from 2010). Revised IAS 23 Borrowing Costs (effective from 2009), IFRIC 12 Service Concession Arrangements (effective from 2008), IFRIC 13 Customer Loyalty Programmes (effective from 2009) and IFRIC 14 IAS 19 – The Limit on a Defined Benefit Asset, Minimum Funding Requirements and their Interaction (ef- fective from 2008).

Segment reporting

A segment is part of the Group that is identifiable in ac- counting terms which either provides goods or services (business activities) or goods or services in a certain eco- nomic environment (geographic area), which is exposed to risks and opportunities that is distinct from other segments.

EOS Russia has not identified any parts that are identifi- able in accounting terms regarding business activities or geographic area and accordingly no segment reporting has been prepared.

Basis of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements comprise EOS AB, and its subsidiaries. A subsidiary is a company which EOS AB controls. Control gives an indirect or direct right to shape a company’s financial and operational strategies with the purpose of obtaining financial advantages.

Subsidiaries are included in the consolidated financial statements using the purchase method. According to the purchase method, the acquisition is considered a transac- tion by which the group indirectly acquires the assets of the subsidiary and assumes its liabilities and contingent liabilities. An acquisition analysis in connection with the ac- quisition establishes both the cost of acquisition and the fair value of acquired identifiable assets and liabilities and con- tingent liabilities assumed. The cost of acquisition consists of the fair value of assets transferred, liabilities incurred or assumed and for equity instruments issued as consideration for acquired net assets, plus any transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition.

Where the cost exceeds the net fair value of acquired identifiable assets and liabilities, the difference is accounted for as goodwill. When the difference is negative, it is di- rectly recognised in the income statement. A subsidiary is included in the consolidated financial statements from the time of acquisition until the date on which control ceases.

Inter-company assets, liabilities, income, expenses and unrealised profits and losses arising from inter-company transactions between group companies are eliminated in their entirety.

EOS Russia is not involved in any entities that are to be classified as associated companies, joint ventures or special purpose entities.

Foreign currency transactions

Transactions in foreign currency are translated to the functional currency at the rate of exchange on the transac- tion date. Monetary assets and liabilities in foreign currency are translated to the functional currency at the exchange rate on the reporting date. Foreign currency differences that arise from translations are recognised in profit or loss. Non- monetary assets and liabilities recognised at historical cost are translated at the exchange rate on the transaction date.

Non-monetary assets and liabilities reported at fair value are translated to the functional currency at the rate prevail- ing on the date of the determination of fair value.

Foreign operations

Assets and liabilities in foreign operations, including good- will and fair value adjustments arising on acquisition, are translated from their functional currency to the reporting

(22)

currency of the Group (Swedish kronor), at the exchange rate at the reporting date. Income and expenses of foreign operations are translated to Swedish kronor at an average exchange rate comprising an approximation of exchange rates prevailing at each transaction date. Translation differ- ences that arise from currency translation of foreign opera- tions are recognised directly in equity as translation reserve.

Change in value of securities

Changes in value of securities, which are reported as revenue in operating income, consist of both realised and unrealised changes in value of securities in the portfolio management. Realised changes in value refer to the dif- ference between settlement received and the value at the beginning of the period. Unrealised changes refer to the changes in the value of the securities reported in EOS Rus- sia’s balance sheet on the balance sheet date. This item also includes the changes in value of equity options.

Operating leases

The Group has only one operating lease agreement.

Costs regarding operating lease agreements are recognised straight-line in the income statement over the leasing period.

Finance income and expenses

Finance income comprises interest income on temporary excess liquidity that is invested in fixed-income securities and that in the accounts is classified as financial assets avail- able for sale. Finance income also includes gains from the divestment of such items and gains in the change in value of currency futures used for financial hedging of the price of shares. For more information, see the “Financial instru- ments” section of the accounting principles.

Finance expenses comprise interest expenses on loans, losses in the change in value of currency futures used for financial hedging of the price of shares and impairment of financial assets.

Exchange rate gains and losses are reported at net amount.

Taxes

Income tax expense comprise current and deferred taxes.

Income tax is recognised in profit or loss except to the extent that it relates to items recognised directly in equity, in which case it is recognised in equity.

Current tax is tax that is to be paid or received for the cur- rent year by applying the tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date. Current tax also includes adjustments to current tax attributable to previous periods.

Deferred tax is recognised using the balance sheet method, providing for temporary differences between amounts used in financial reporting and taxation. The valuation of deferred tax is based on how underlying assets or liabilities are estimated to be accounted for or regulated. Deferred tax is measured by applying tax rates or tax regulations enacted at the reporting date. Deferred tax assets related to deductible temporary differences and loss carry-forwards are only reported to the extent that it is likely that they will be utilised. The value of deferred tax assets is reduced when it is no longer deemed likely that they can be utilised.

Financial instruments

Categories of financial instruments and measurements When a financial asset or financial liability is recognised initially, EOS Russia measures it at its fair value plus, in the case of financial assets and liabilities not at fair value through profit or loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the financial asset or liability. For financial instruments measured at fair value through profit and loss, transaction costs are recognised directly as expenses when they are incurred.

(i) Financial instruments held for trading

Investments in equity instruments are classified as held for trading and are measured at fair value (without any deductions for future transaction costs) with changes in fair values recognised in the income statement. Being the main activity of EOS Russia, the change in value of and dividends received from these securities are recognised as revenue in operating income.

Stand-alone and any potential embedded derivatives that are not closely related to the host contract also belong to the category financial instruments held for trading and are measured at fair value through the income statement.

Derivatives utilised for financial hedging consist of equity options and currency futures. The change in value of equity options is reported in “Net change in value of securities.”

Changes in the value of currency futures are reported in “Fi- nance income” and “Finance expenses”, since these futures are utilised to hedge financing.

(ii) Financial assets available for sale

In cases when the Group is temporarily over-funded await- ing the appropriate opportunity for additional investments, the liquidity surplus is invested in interest rate bearing financial instruments and the investments for measurement and recognition purposes, belong to the category financial assets available for sale, since the Group has no intention
