Copel reported an EBITDA of R$1,006.1 million in the 1Q17, 87.2% higher than the R$537.4 million recorded in the 1Q16, mainly due (a) the recognition of R$224.6 million concerning the remeasurement of transmission assets (RBSE), (b) the result of the distributor's 4th tariff review cycle, in June 2016, plus the 3.5% increase in the grid market, (c) the reduction in the cost of electricity purchase from Itaipu, as a result of the dollar's lower exchange rate, and (d) the 36.1% decrease in charges of the mains transmission and distribution grid, due to the smaller dispatch outside the order of merit. In the 1Q17, Copel reported a net income of R$417.3 million vs. R$136.1 million in the 1Q16.
