  8. 8. OMIClearOMIClear as a Central Counterpartyas a Central Counterparty - OMIClear’s activity is devoted to the role of Clearing House and Central Counterparty (CCP) in trades made on several derivatives products: Power & Gas, energy and capacity, through ETD (Exchange Trading Derivatives) or OTC. - As CCP, OMIClear becomes the buyer counterpart to every seller’s Clearing Member and the seller counterpart to every buyer’s Clearing Member, as soon as a trade is registered in OMIClear. - As CCP, OMIClear performs the netting of positions - As CCP, OMIClear register and manages the positions, performs risk management and settlements (physical and financial) that arise from the trades Buy Position: + 15MW Clearing Member Sell Position: - 10 MW Reduction of M b ’ Ri k Margin Less collateral 8 C ea g e be Account Net Position = +5 MW Member’s Risk Exposure g Reduction collateral required
  9. 9. Risk MinimizationRisk Minimization The CCP ensures the multilateral Clearing of positions reducing risks such as: Counterparty Risk Guarateeing the fulfilment of contract’s obligations of both counterparties Cash Settlement Risk both counterparties Operational Risk Debits & Credits are settled multilaterally G Reliable clearing system that calculates and provides on real time basis i & l iin TARGET2 payment system gains & losses, margins, collateral movements, operational limits, statistics Systemic Risk If M b d f lt lIf a Member defaults only affects the CCP instead the market as a whole 9 OMIClear is at the final phase of the EMIR re‐authorization process

  14. 14. Initial MarginInitial Margin Purpose: Minimize the Risk of having to close out positions, in a short time period, belonging to a Clearing Member that enters into default Applies when there is a “Potential Risk E ” Always a Responsibility of a Member Exposure” Covered with Guarantees (Cash / Bank with open positions IM Guarantees / Securities) IM Applies to both Trading & Based on a concept of Porfolio Other complementary Delivery Period of contracts Porfolio (SPAN based model)Based on the max price elements of the margin model are “Variation Margin” and “Mark to 14 max. price varation within “X” days Market”
  15. 15. One Single Collateral Pool to Cover Multiple  OMIClear Services With OMIClear, Participants can pledge 1 single collateral (e.g. cash and/or bank guarantee) to cover responsibilities arising from their participation in multiple productsg ) p g p p p p or services: Example: 40%1 single collateral pool ( G / To cover positions i f tly 40% (Bank Guarantee and/or cash) => margins of Spanish Power futures contracts 20% To cover positions => margins of Gas Capacity Rights Accepted Collateral: 15% 25% T iti i Cash Bank Guar.

  17. 17. Specific advantages of OMIClear as a CCP in the Iberian gas hub  Reduction of counterparty risk – OMIClear as CCP minimizes default probability OMIClear have default g Mitigation of credit minimizes default probability. OMIClear have default procedures in place already tested and approved by the regulators (CMVM and finalizing EMIR process) g risk (counterparty)  Most players in the gas hub are already members of OMIClear as CCP in the power market Broad participation (iberian non iberian; utilities Market participants both at the Iberian power and gas  Broad participation (iberian, non-iberian; utilities, financial players,…) power and gas market  Market participants may use one collateral pool to cover their market risk exposure both for power and natural gas Possibility of using one collateral pool for both power and NG gasp  OMIClear has a portfolio margin based on SPAN model 17 ‘Portfolio Margin’ for multiple products  OMIClear has a portfolio margin based on SPAN model that could allow for inter-commodity spreads

Development of a Gas Hub in Iberia and OMIClear • OMIClear is already working with BOTH trading platform initiatives (OMIE  gas and IBGH) to clear and settle natural gas physical products with delivery in g ) g p y p y the virtual point (AOC). – Short term and forward market: daily, weekly, BoM, monthly, year products … – Physical contracts. – Possible expansion to the Portuguese hub or joint virtual point (regulation) – Physical regulation (TSOs role) matter: OMIClear is following the discussions that y g ( ) g trading venues are maintaining with the TSO (Enagas – GTS) in order to define the  general framework and the relationship between “trades” and physical nominations  and balancing mechanisms  • OMIClear is working to identify those changes (instructions, IT systems, risk  management models,…)  that would be needed to be developed or modified in  order to be able to clear and settle natural gas productsorder to be able to clear and settle natural gas products. – OMIE gas – adapting the model to a short‐term organized market (energy regulation) – IBGH  ‐ main architecture will be applicable (EMIR) and  more work is needed on the  i   t  (li idit  &  l tilit   d l  l d  t  i d &  i   i ti   19 margin system (liquidity & volatility model – closed out period & price variation  (EbMPS))
