Market Outlook
Before looking ahead to 2010, taking stock of 2009, we witnessed an exceptional year, due to
the financial crisis. In Navita’s annual report for 2008, we predicted a robust market in 2009 with
significant uncertainty range and dominated by physical players as opposed to banks and hedge
funds.

We also predicted a market tilted towards system market will be the choice between multi-year, large

Our customers
We acquired a significant number of new customers in 2009, and witnessed a number of existing
customers go into production in 2009. Below is a presentation of a selected few of key projects in
2009. These projects have been selected because they allow us to demonstrate the breadth of our
offerings, presented us with novel challenges, or in other ways represented sources of
organisational learning:

GdF Suez
Paris, France
GDF SUEZ is one of the leading energy providers in the world, with activities across the entire energy value chain, in
electricity and natural gas, and upstream to downstream. GDF SUEZ relies on diversified supply sources as well as
flexible and highly efficient power generation in order to provide energy solutions to individuals, cities and
businesses. The Group employs 200,650 people worldwide and achieved revenues of €79.9 billion in 2009.
When the Global Gas & LNG business line needed a system to perform risk metrics calculations while seamlessly inte-
grating into a complex systems architecture, they chose to contract with Navita for the installation of POMAX.
The system went into production in April 2009.

Romain Rochas, Market and Credit Risk Management IT Manager, said :


“Considering the multi-dimensional exposure to risk a group such as GDF SUEZ faces on a daily basis, we needed a product
robust enough to handle large amounts of data and interface with systems used in other parts of the business. A product
also capable of performing complex calculations and generating detailed reports in a timely manner. As of today, we can
say that POMAX has managed to deliver on all fronts.”

For more information about GdF Suez, see www.gdfsuez.com.

Mercuria
Geneva, Switzerland and Houston, Texas:
The Mercuria Energy Group is an international group of companies active over a wide spectrum of global energy
markets including crude oil and refined petroleum products, natural gas, power, coal, biodiesel, vegetable oils and
carbon emissions. The Mercuria group is one of the world’s five largest independent energy traders. In addition to its
trading core, the group has upstream and downstream assets ranging from oil in the ground in California, Canada and
Argentina to oil and products terminals in Europe and China, and a biofuels plant in Germany.

Mercuria in Geneva has been a Navita client for some time, and when Mercuria decided to set up a trading desk in
Houston, they chose to deploy POMAX as their ETRM system. The system successfully went into production on October
2009.

Chris Mudry, Chief Risk Manager, said:


“We were initially in some doubt about whether we wanted to deploy in Houston our ETRM solution for European power.
However, considering Navita’s existing familiarity with Mercuria’s processes and activities, we decided yes.
A highly-qualified blueprinting team with considerable ETRM consulting experience was assembled by Navita and the
system successfully went into production after a 3-4 months project.”

Annual Report 2009

Romande Energie
Morges, Switzerland
Fifth largest electricity distributor in Switzerland, Romande Energie reaches 260 000 residential and business
customers. Romande Energie is active in production, grid management and commercialisation. While historically
focused on the Vaud country and the lower Valais, the company is ideally positioned to cover the French part of
Switzerland.

It sources most of its electricity from a dozen of its own hydroelectric plants, a few renewable energy sources, and EOS,
the major supplier in Western Switzerland, in which it has a shareholding of just under 30%. When Romande Energie
needed a system for physical power trading, they chose to contract with Navita for the installation of POMAX.
The system went into production in January 2009.

Jean-Pierre Mitard, CEO of Romande Energie Commerce, said:


“Considering the complexity of our portfolio and the difficulties that most companies meet in the implementation of an
ETRM system, we were originally quite skeptical to whether NAVITA would be able to deliver the configuration and set-up
of POMAX in such a short timeframe. Less than 6 months after the launch of the project, we reached our objectives of
being fully operational within the promised timeframe and within the budget”.

Note 13 - Impairment test of goodwill and intangible assets


Recognised goodwill in the Navita Group as of 31.12.2009 amounted to MNOK 17,64 (MNOK 17,64 in 2008). The
Goodwill originated mainly from the acquisition of Navita Scotland Ltd (former Advantage Energy Solutions Ltd) in
Edinburgh, Scotland which was completed in 2007.
Recognised capitalised development costs in the Group as of 31.12.2008 amounted to MNOK 34,42 (MNOK 34,76 in
2008). These are mainly modules to POMAX and new technical solutions regarding POMAX.

The Group as a whole is considered to be the only cash generating unit (CGU) since there is no possibility to isolate and
measure the cash flow for any of the units or the products alone.

The impairment test is carried out by the Group’s accountanting department. The valuation was done in December
2009. The recoverable amount is set at the estimated value in use. The value in use is estimated as the net present
value of anticipated cash flows before tax, using a discount rate taking into account the duration of the cash flows and
the expected risk. Projected cash flows have been determined on financial budget approved by the management of the
Group. The cash flows are determined based upon the financial budget for 2010.

The following assumptions are used in the impairment tests:


• A continuing growth of the Group’s market share in the total market of 12% annually for the first 5 years, is
expected, and thereafter a reduction in year 6, because some products are not expected to have an economic
lifetime linger than 5 years. Thereafter, revenue growth continues at 12% in year 7 to year 10 of the expected
cash flows.
• An improvement of the EBITDA margin of 10% is expected, and that EBITDA thereafter will remain stable.
• The discount rate used for calculating the net present value of cash flows is 20,0%. This is based on a risk free rate
of 5,0% and a risk premium of 15%. The risk premium is based on uncertainty regarding the expected growth.

Sensitivity at changes in the key assumptions


As of 31.12.2008 goodwill and capitalised development costs in use amounted to MNOK 67,67, compared to a total
booked value of MNOK 52,06. An analysis of sensitivity based on reasonable possible changes in the key assumptions
regarding growth and margins shows the following reduction of value (amounts in MNOK) with following write-down
of goodwill and capitalised development cost (amounts in MNOK):

Growth: EBITDA Value in use Write down
