The net financial position rose from Euro 1,571.5 million as at 31 December 2008 to Euro 1,891.8 million as at 31 December 2009. The increase was due, other than to the changed consolidation perimeter for approximately Euro 20 million and to the repayment of the so-called "state aid" amounting to Euro 27.6 million, to the increased turnover and investments made.

An indebtedness mainly comprising medium/long term debt covering over 95% of total indebtedness, is confirmed, dully offsetting the Group's equity structure characterized by a high fixed assets value.

Hera S.p.A.'s long-term rating issued by Moody's is "A2" and Standard & Poor's rating is "A-" ,both with negative outlook.
