AThree-month period ended December 31, 2018
Production increased 58% compared to the same quarter last year. The Corporation's facilities produced 1,747,708AMWh of electricity or 102% of the LTA of 1,719,485AMWh. Overall, the hydroelectric facilities produced 91% of their LTA, the wind farms produced 106% of their LTA, the solar farms produced 82% of their LTA and the geothermal facilities produced 110% of their LTA.The Corporation recorded revenues of $166.2 million, up 54%, and Adjusted EBITDA of $113.2 million, up 41%, mainly due to the contribution of the geothermal facilities acquired as part of Alterra in February 2018, to the 62% interest in the Cartier Wind Farms acquired in October 2018 and to higher production at the Upper Lillooet River hydro facility and French wind facilities. The Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreased from 74.1% to 68.1% for the three-month period due mainly to changes in our mix of segments as geothermal operations have a lower EBITDA margin due to their higher maintenance, daily operating costs and power purchasing costs. The Adjusted EBITDA Proportionate reached $133.0 million, up 60%, due mainly to higher Adjusted EBITDA and a higher Innergex's share of Adjusted EBITDA of joint ventures and associates stemming from the addition of the facilities acquired as part of Alterra and EnergAa Llaima in 2018. For the three-month period ended DecemberA31, 2018, the Corporation recorded net earnings of $14.0 million (basic and diluted net earnings of $0.10 per share), compared with net earnings of $3.5 million (basic and diluted net earnings of $0.05 per share) for the corresponding period in 2017. The $10.4 million increase in net earnings can be explained by the $33.1 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA and by the $15.0Amillion positive change in the share of earnings of joint ventures and associates, partly offset by the $15.0Amillion increase in finance costs, $13.9 million increase in depreciation and amortization and $6.7 million increase in other net expenses.Year ended December 31, 2018
Production increased 43% compared to last year. The Corporation's facilities produced 6,283,436AMWh of electricity or 98% of the LTA of 6,437,964AMWh. Overall, the hydroelectric facilities produced 94% of their LTA, the wind farms produced 100% of their LTA, the solar facilities produced 101% of their LTA and the geothermal facilities produced 104% of their LTA.The Corporation recorded revenues of $576.6 million, up 44%, and Adjusted EBITDA of $385.1 million, up 29%, due mainly to the contribution of the geothermal facilities acquired as part of Alterra in February 2018, the French wind facilities acquired in 2017 and the 62% interest in the Cartier Wind Farms acquired in October 2018. The Adjusted EBITDA Margin decreased from 74.6% to 66.8% for the year due mainly to the same factors as for the three-month period. The year's margin was also impacted by challenging post-commissioning activities that have been mostly addressed at the Upper Lillooet River facility. The Adjusted EBITDA Proportionate reached $459.1Amillion, up 49%, mainly due to the addition of the facilities acquired in 2018.For the year ended DecemberA31, 2018, the Corporation recorded net earnings of $25.7Amillion (basic and diluted net earnings of $0.21 per share), compared with net earnings of $19.1Amillion (basic and diluted net earnings of $0.22 per share) for the corresponding period in 2017. The $6.6Amillion increase in net earnings can be explained by the $86.4Amillion increase in Adjusted EBITDA, $29.5Amillion positive change in the share of earnings of joint ventures and associates and $4.4Amillion positive change in income taxes, partly offset by the $52.3Amillion increase in finance costs, the $42.4Amillion increase in depreciation and amortization, the $12.8Amillion negative change in other net expenses (revenues) and the $6.2Amillion negative change in unrealized net loss (gain) on financial instruments.Free Cash Flow and Payout Ratio
For the year ended DecemberA31, 2018, the Corporation generated Free Cash Flow of $105.1Amillion,A compared with $87.2Amillion for the corresponding period last year. The increase in Free Cash Flow is due mainly to higher cash flows from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital items, partly offset by greater scheduled debt principal payments, higher Free Cash Flow attributed to non-controlling interests and higher maintenance capital expenditures net of proceeds from disposals.For the year ended DecemberA31, 2018, the dividends on common shares declared by the Corporation amounted to 86% of Free Cash Flow, compared with 82% for the corresponding period last year. This change results mainly from higher dividend payments as a result of the issuance of 24,327,225Ashares on FebruaryA6, 2018, related to the Alterra acquisition, to the increase in the quarterly dividend, to additional shares following the exercise of share options and to additional shares issued under the Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP").FOURTH QUARTER OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
On October 22, 2018, Innergex completed the acquisition of the Hillcrest photovoltaic solar prospective project of approximately 200 MWAC located in Brown County, Ohio. Interconnection service agreements are in place with PJM to interconnect to the Duke Energy-owned Hillcrest substation, that would allow a commercial operation date in the fourth quarter of 2020.On October 24, 2018, the Corporation completed the acquisition of TransCanada's 62% interest in five wind farms in Quebec's GaspA peninsula, known as Baie-des-Sables, Carleton, Gros-Morne, L'Anse-A-Valleau and Montagne SA?che (the "Cartier Wind Farms"), and its 50% interest in the operating entities of the Cartier Wind Farms (the "Cartier Operating Entities") for a total consideration of approximately $620 million. Innergex already owned the remaining interests in both the Cartier Wind Farms and Cartier Operating Entities.Also on October 24, 2018, the Corporation obtained two short-term credit facilities to cover the purchase price and transaction costs in their entirety. Innergex has obtained a $400 million one-year non-recourse credit facility to be repaid using the proceeds of a non-recourse long-term project level financing. The Corporation also obtained a one-year term credit facility of $228 million to be reimbursed through the strategic divestment of selected assets that would be optimal for the long-term performance and outlook of the Corporation.On December 19, 2018, the Corporation announced the closing of a non-recourse financing of $570.4 million with regards to four operating wind farms ("Cartier Credit Facility"), known as Carleton, Gros-Morne, L'Anse-A-Valleau and Montagne SA?che. The Baie-des-Sables wind farm is not included to secure the Cartier Credit Facility as it secures the corporate revolving credit facilities. The Cartier Credit Facility has a term of 14 years. Proceeds of the loan were used to repay the existing credit facilities of the L'Anse-A-Valleau, Carleton and Montagne SA?che wind farms and to repay the $400 million one-year secured bridge loan granted to the Corporation at the time of the acquisition of the Cartier Wind Farms and Cartier Operating Entities. Innergex used the rest of the proceeds, net of expenses, to deleverage its corporate revolving credit facilities.On December 19, 2018, Innergex amended and restated its corporate revolving credit facilities to adjust the security package and extend the maturity date from December 2022 to December 2023.In the three-month period ended December 31, 2018, construction work continued at the Phoebe solar project in Texas.AA The contractor has completed clearing of the site and installation of the piles and trackers has commenced. The Foard City wind project also in Texas encounters delays in obtaining the Determination of No Hazards from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which could result in a reduction of total installed capacity of the project and affect its expected commercial operation date, which was postponed to the fourth quarter of 2019. The negotiation with the FAA, whose deadline has been affected by the United States government shutdown, is based on an acceptable airspace perimeter determination. Mitigation solutions focused on a reduced perimeter with airspace users have been identified and a final agreement is being drafted by the parties. Issuance of permits by the FAA is expected to resume and to follow its normal course. Most scheduled construction activities are ongoing at the site.APPOINTMENT TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Principal Assumptions



Principal Risks and Uncertainties



Expected productionFor each facility, the Corporation determines a long-term average annual level of electricity production ("LTA") over the expected life of the facility, based on engineers' studies that take into consideration a number of important factors: for hydroelectricity, the historically observed flows of the river, the operating head, the technology employed and the reserved aesthetic and ecological flows; for wind energy, the historical wind and meteorological conditions and turbine technology; for solar energy, the historical solar irradiation conditions, panel technology and expected solar panel degradation and for geothermal power facilities, the historical geothermal resources natural depletion of geothermal resources over time, the technology used and the potential of energy loss to occur before delivery. Other factors taken into account include, without limitation, site topography, installed capacity, energy losses, operational features and maintenance. Although production will fluctuate from year to year, over an extended period it should approach the estimated LTA. On a consolidated basis, the Corporation estimates its LTA by adding together the expected LTAs of all the facilities in operation, for the facilities that it consolidates. This consolidation excludes however the facilities which are accounted for using the equity method (Dokie, East Toba, Flat Top, Guayacan, Jimmie Creek, Mampil, Montrose Creek, Pampa Elvira, PeuchAn, Shannon, Umbata Falls and Viger-Denonville).A



Improper assessment of water, wind, solar and geothermal resources and associated electricity productionVariability in hydrology, wind regimes, solar irradiation and geothermal resourcesRisks inherent in geothermal resourceEquipment supply risk, including failure or unexpected operations and maintenance activityNatural disasters and force majeureRegulatory and political risks affecting productionHealth, safety and environmental risks affecting productionVariability of installation performance and related penaltiesAvailability and reliability of transmission systemsLitigation



Projected revenuesFor each facility, expected annual revenues are estimated by multiplying the LTA by a price for electricity stipulated in the PPA secured with a public utility or other creditworthy counterparty mainly. In most cases these PPAs stipulate a base price for electricity produced and, in some cases, a price adjustment depending on the month, day and hour of its delivery. This excludes facilities, which receive revenues, based on the market (or spot) price for electricity, including the Miller Creek hydroelectric facility, which receives a price based on a formula using the Platts Mid-C pricing indices, the Horseshoe Bend hydroelectric facility, for which 85% of the price is fixed and 15% is adjusted annually as determined by the Idaho Public Utility Commission. Revenues at the HS Orka facilities also fluctuate with the price of aluminum, as certain of those PPAs are linked to such price. In most cases, power purchase agreements also contain an annual inflation adjustment based on a portion of the Consumer Price Index. On a consolidated basis, the Corporation estimates annual revenues by adding together the projected revenues of all the facilities in operation that it consolidates This consolidation excludes however the facilities which are accounted for using the equity method (Dokie, East Toba, Flat Top, Guayacan, Jimmie Creek, Mampil, Montrose Creek, Pampa Elvira, PeuchAn, Shannon, Umbata Falls and Viger-Denonville).A



See principal assumptions, risks and uncertainties identified under "Expected Production"Reliance on various forms of PPAsRevenues from certain facilities will vary based on the market (or spot) price of electricityFluctuations affecting prospective power pricesChanges in general economic conditionsAbility to secure new Power Purchase Agreements or Renew any Power Purchase Agreement



Projected Adjusted EBITDAFor each facility, the Corporation estimates annual operating earnings by adding (deducting) to net earnings (loss) provision (recovery) for income tax expenses, finance cost, depreciation and amortization, other net expenses, share of (earnings) loss of joint ventures and associates and unrealized net (gain) loss on financial instruments. The Adjusted EBITDA consolidated excludes however the facilities which are accounted for using the equity method (Dokie, East Toba, Flat Top, Guayacan, Jimmie Creek, Mampil, Montrose Creek, Pampa Elvira, PeuchAn, Shannon, Umbata Falls and Viger-Denonville). Innergex believes that the presentation of this measure enhances the understanding of the Corporation's operating performance. Readers are cautioned that Projected Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings, as determined in accordance with IFRS.A



See principal assumptions, risks and uncertainties identified under "Expected Production" and "Projected Revenues"



Estimated project costs, expected obtainment of permits, start of construction, workA conducted and start of commercial operation for Development Projects or Prospective ProjectsFor each Development Project and Prospective Project, the Corporation may provide (where available) an estimate of potential installed capacity, estimated project costs, project financing terms and each project's development and construction schedule, based on its extensive experience as a developer, in addition to information directly related incremental internal costs, site acquisition costs and financing costs, which are eventually adjusted for the projected costs and construction schedule provided by the engineering, procurement and construction ("EPC") contractor retained for the project.The Corporation provides indications based on assumptions regarding its current strategic positioning and competitive outlook, as well as scheduling and construction progress, for its Development Projects and its Prospective Projects, which the Corporation evaluates based on its experience as a developer.



Uncertainties surrounding development of new facilitiesPerformance of major counterparties, such as suppliers or contractorsDelays and cost overruns in the design and construction of projectsAbility to secure appropriate landObtainment of permitsHealth, safety and environmental risksSocial acceptance of renewable energy projectsAbility to secure new power Purchase Agreements or renew any power purchase agreementRelationships with stakeholdersEquipment supplyInterest rate fluctuations and financing riskRisks related to U.S. PTCs and ITCs, changes in U.S. corporate tax rates and availability of tax equity financingRelationships with stakeholdersRegulatory and political risksHigher-than-expected inflationNatural disasterAbility of the Corporation to execute its strategy for building shareholder valueFailure to realize the anticipated benefits of completed and future acquisitionsChanges in governmental support to increase electricity to be generated from renewable sources by independent power producersRegulatory and political risksForeign market growth and development risksOutcome of insurance claims



Qualification for PTCs and ITCFor certain Development Projects in the United States, the Corporation has conducted on- and off-site activities expected to qualify its Development Projects for PTCs or ITC at the full rate and to obtain tax equity financing on such a basis. To assess the potential qualification of a project, the Corporation takes into account the construction work performed and the timing of such work.



Risks related to U.S. PTCs and ITCs, changes in U.S. corporate tax rates and availability of tax equity financingRegulatory and political risksDelays and cost overruns in the design and construction of projectsObtainment of permits



Potential divestiture of selected assetsThe Corporation ability to successfully identify potential purchasers for some of the Corporation's assets and its ability to assess and realize the value of such assessment in a successful divestiture and the timing of the completion of the transaction.
