Prague – The ending energy group Bohemia Energy will meet all its obligations to customers, employees, banks and suppliers. The company rejects the claim that it went bankrupt. The company announced this in today’s press release sent to ČTK. She stated that she slowed down her activities and stopped supplying electricity and gas precisely because such a situation did not occur.

With around 900,000 supply points on Wednesday, the group announced that it had decided to close its business and supply electricity and gas to customers of Bohemia Energy, Comfort Energy, Energie ČS, Europe Easy Energy and X Energie. The electricity market operator (OTE) subsequently announced that these companies had lost the opportunity to supply electricity a gas.

The clients of the largest group of alternative energy suppliers in the Czech Republic are now taken over by the so-called suppliers of last resort (DPI), ie the main distributor in the given distribution area. These include ČEZ, E.ON, PRE, Pražská plynárenská and innogy, which will now secure energy supplies. “We are very sorry about the situation of our customers and we apologize to everyone for the problems we have caused them. At the same time, we want to assure everyone that all overpayments will be returned to them after the final bill,” said Jiří Písařík, owner of the Bohemia Energy group.

The company said today that the European energy market has found itself in a completely unprecedented situation, when, for example, in Britain, 15 suppliers have already been forced to close their energy supplies and these companies are heading for bankruptcy. “However, our situation is completely different. We decided to curb our activities precisely because of the fact that insolvency would not occur and we could settle all liabilities,” Písařík said. The company claims that it communicated with customers and business partners quite openly and well in advance so that they have time to secure energy supplies before the winter.

“Since 2015, the group’s shareholders have not shared any profit share and returned to the group most of the profit share distributed in 2014. The slowdown in the group’s activities and the cessation of energy supplies was caused by extreme market developments that no one could have expected or prepared for. , “the group added. Last year, the revenues of the Bohemia Energy energy group increased by seven percent year-on-year to CZK 23.1 billion. According to the results published in the Collection rose net profit of the parent Bohemia Energy entity by a third to 647.2 million crowns. The owner of the Písařík company with his family is according to last year’s magazine ranking Forbes 32nd richest Czech with assets of 7.3 billion crowns.

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (YES) said on Wednesday that negative phenomena and unfair, deceptive and “blacksmith” business practices had been evident at Bohemia Energy for a long time. The company strongly rejected this in response. “By no means can we say that Bohemia Energy has committed any fraud. The company has not broken any law. On the contrary, we are playing fair and we are closing down at a time that will ensure that Bohemia Energy settles all its obligations and no one loses money.” said today the company’s spokeswoman Hana Novotná.
