Unless otherwise specified, the entire content of the pages of this website, such as information, texts, images, photographs, illustrations, page organization and design, graphic materials and drawings, among other materials provided on the website and even other arrangements relating to such elements, brands, domain names, whether registered or not, are the property of CESP or of the third parties who lawfully assigned their right of use to CESP.

This website was prepared in accordance with Brazilian laws, including, but not limited to Law No. 12,965/14 (“Marco Civil da Internet” or “MCI”, the Brazilian Civil Rights Framework for the Internet), the decree regulating the MCI (Decree No. 8,771/2016), and Federal Law No. 13,709/2018 (“General Data Protection Law” or “GDPL”), also based on the principle of good faith, copyright and applicable internet advertising market guidelines.

Comments on EBITDA

EBITDA is defined by CESP as net profit (loss) plus net financial income, pension fund income, depreciation and amortization, non-operating income, goodwill amortization and taxes on income and social contributions. EBITDA is used as a performance measure by the Company’s management and is not a measure adopted by Brazilian or American accounting practices; it does not represent cash flow for the periods presented and should not be considered as a substitute for net income as an indicator of CESP’s operational performance or as a substitute for cash flow, nor as an indicator of liquidity.

CESP’s management believes that the EBITDA is a practical way of measuring its operating performance and that it allows for a comparison with other companies in the same segment. However, it should be noted that EBITDA is not a measurement established in accordance with Brazilian Accounting Principles (Brazilian Corporate Law or BR GAAP) or North American Accounting Principles (US GAAP) and can be defined and calculated differently by other companies.

Warning: By using or accessing this website and any of its pages, the user agrees to the Terms and Conditions set forth herein. Therefore, please cease browsing or making public consultations of the pages of this website if you do not agree with all of the above Terms and Conditions.
