    • Current Situation  The electricity sector in the DR has shown little structural improvements, if any, in the last 12 months despite the efforts of the current administration administration.  Clearly, the drivers for the historical “vicious cycle” remain unchanged. unchanged  Although the underlying causes for the “vicious cycle” are well known we have the perception that we continue known, shooting in the wrong direction. Myths continue to fog the right path.  After describing briefly these negative drivers our intention is to share with you our view on how to transform them, and c ea e o ce aga create once again a “virtuous cycle” for the sector. uous cyc e o e sec o 2

    • Are AR an attractive financial business? 1,000  800  S$ mln 600  400  400 US AR 200  Sales ‐ Sep‐07 Sep‐08 Sep‐09 Jul‐07 Jul‐08 Jul‐09 Mar‐07 Mar‐08 Mar‐09 Mar‐10 Jan‐07 Nov‐07 Jan‐08 Nov‐08 Jan‐09 Nov‐09 Jan‐10 May‐07 May‐08 May‐09  Distribution companies’ late payments force generators to finance the deficit of the Electrical Sector with a negative carrying.  Generators pay 9 5% to 12% on their indebtedness (144A/Reg S Notes) 9.5% Notes).  Generators charge 7% to 9.5% to the DisCos (Historical USD Local Active Interest Rate under PPAs).  Additionally, merchant generators (mostly the DR Govt. throught CDEEE & EGEHID) charge 11%-18% interest rate in DOP plus an 18% penalty, which combined with exchange rate stability makes a 25%-35% USD effective interest rate on energy purchases of Contracted Generators.  Conclusion, except for merchant generators financing the DisCos is a very bad business. business  If the GenCos would monetize the AR, USD 400mln could be used to fuel a new wave of investments at higher rates of return. 14

    • What Reducing the Contract Prices Means  Private GenCos combined Net Income was US$154mln in 2009. Annual Deficit 900  800  154  700  600  US$ mln 500  400  831  300  676  200  100  ‐ Current GenCos Conceed Net Income  If GenCos were to reduce their prices in 0.02 US$/kWh their profit would disappear and still the hole would be unmanageable. Noted that without appropriate returns there are no investments.  Th problem i not i th G C The bl is t in the GenCos, it i i energy th ft non-focalized is in theft, f li d subsidies and tariffs. 16
    • Conclusions  We are at a critical point for decision making.  With the wrong incentives we will continue with the “vicious cycle” and run out of generating capacity in 3 years. u o ge e at g capac ty yea s  The electricity sector deficit representing ~1.8% of the GDP is unsustainable.  Implementing market oriented measures are the way to go:  A t h i l t iff which will provide th right price signal technical tariff, hi h ill id the i ht i i l  Focalized subsidies, below 150kWh/mo  Fully transfer the DisCos to private ownership  Eliminate arrears with generators g  Political will to enforce the law against electricity theft  Moreover, key elements for positive change are present:  Willingness of existing players to invest in new efficient capacity.  The country remains attractive for the investment community (telecom community. (telecom, tourism, recent placement of sovereign bond, etc.)  The right incentives and fulfillment of contractual obligations, are the only way to reduce long-term energy marginal costs. 17
