JSC RusHydro (ticker symbol: HYDR; MICEX, RTS and LSE) Board of Directors voted by proxy.
RusHydro JSC Board of Directors approved a list and target values of the Company’s annual and quarterly KPI and for 2010 and altered accordingly the Procedure for calculation and evaluation of JSC RusHydro KPI.
JSC RusHydro Board of Directors amended the Company’s 2010 Insurance Coverage Program approved by RusHydro JSC Board of Directors on 30.12.2009 (Minutes No.91).
Under this resolution the Company Management Board is to submit to the Board of Directors for review a valid proposal concerning the amount of indemnity limit under the 2010 all risks property insurance contract, sufficient to provide effective coverage for the Company.
The changes are connected with an increase in the indemnity limit per insured event that was earlier approved by JSC RusHydro Board of Directors’ resolution of 11.02.2010 (Minutes No.92).
In the amended Program the indemnity limit was increased to USD 600 million on all risks, except for «terrorism» and «machinery/equipment breakdown» risks.
The «terrorism» risk limit of USD 50 million remained unchanged given a low insured risk probability and the HPP (Hydroelectric Power Plant) being a specially protected site.
The «machinery/equipment breakdown» risk limit of USD 300 million was retained as the cost of one piece of equipment, which may break down and is to be indemnified under the limit for this risk, in no way exceeds USD 300 million. There is little point, therefore, in increasing the indemnity limit under this risk. However, if a breakdown of equipment affects any other pieces of the insured property, the increased indemnity limit will cover such property.
