UPDATE: DOMLEC rakes in over $14-million in profit for 2014

McKenzie announced the company's profit to the media on Friday

Dominica’s sole electricity company, DOMLEC, is reporting a profit of $14.82-million in 2014 after tax.

This is over 67 percent increase from a profit of $8.8-million reported in 2013.

General Manager, Bertilia Leblanc- Mckenzie, said at a press conference held at the DOMLEC’s office in Roseau on Friday that the company’s profit was announced during an Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Fort Young Hotel with its shareholders on Thursday.

“We had our Annual General Meeting yesterday at which we spoke to our shareholders about our performance in 2014,” she said. “We were pleased to report to our shareholders that DOMLEC made a profit, after tax, of $14.82 million, which is about 67.6 percent above that of 2013.”

According to Mckenzie, reasons for the profit include a two percent increase in electricity sales, a decrease in expenses by 11 percent and “miscellaneous revenue figure of $1.08 million which was insurance proceeds.”

She noted that the company suffered a crank shaft failure at a plant in 2013, “so we expended money on that and we got back the insurance proceeds of $1.08 million in 2014 which led to an increase in the profitability.”

She said the increase in profit was not based on a rise in electricity rates to customers.

“DOMLEC has not had a tariff review since 2007, so it cannot be said that DOMLEC has increased the rates to the customers,” she stated. “That has not happened at all. What I am saying is a company which performed in such a way, managed itself in such a way that it was able to decrease it expenses by 11 percent.”

Mckenzie stated further that there have been an increase in electricity sales, “and what we have seen is the fuel surcharge dropped in 2014 from a high in July of 14.09 cents to a low in December of 36.78 cents.”

She believes that when customers notice a reduction in the fuel surcharge, “they probably use some more electricity.”

“That’s what I attribute it to. I attribute this increase in sales to a drop in fuel surcharge and people are tempted to use more electricity, they will conserve more when the price is higher,” she explained.

She added, “I cannot apologize for a company that is well run, which was able to bring down its expenses by 11 percent. Given the fact that we have not had a tariff increase since 2007, so it cannot be said at all that electricity rates increased.”

Meantime Mckenzie revealed that in 2014 the company lost $240,201 to businesses that self generate elecricity such as operating Solar PV.

“They self generate and if they have excess supply, they are hooked up on our grid so they sell it to us, so that’s what happens,” she said. “So when they sell to us we have to pay them.”

Mckenzie reminds customers that the company is in the midst of a tariff filing review process, “and what we want for the customer is the least cost electricity.”

    DNO a high in July of 14.09 cents to a low in December of 36.78 would indicate that there has been an increase rather than a decrease. clarify please.

    Why oh why has the government not taken Domlec back. That 14 million could have been in the government hands, but no this money has left the island and is now in the hands of who?
    Electricity, Water, Lpg gas, must be under the control of all governments around the world.

    Domlec has even rendered Dominica a very dark place. From Roseau to Pt. Michel is so dark at night, it is my hope that they will light up the manager’s village at least to show some respect to her. Have you looked from Roseau south towards Pt. Michel at night? I rest my case. Hardly a third if the homes can kep a light on outside their homes for their own safety. My thanks to the IRC for defining profit level for Domlec, I hope this has teeth and Domlec will stick to it or face the courts.

    Before Domlec Dominicans were able to afford leaving a light on outside their homes, making our country a place you can take a walk after the sun goes down. Today the village councils can hardly afford to improve on the few street lights in existence. All the villages, including many parts of Roseau are very dark. What a shame. Solar panels are a must. Domlec should at least reinvest 6 out of that $14 mil on Dominica’s hydro they inherited and neglected, for the Good of all.

    That’s the cost of capitalism. The onus is to generate profits for the shareholders . One cannot blame the company . In addition ,the only competitors are conservation and renewables . Therefore let us build more efficient houses and invest in renewables like solar and wind . We would probably still need Domlec ; however we would recover some $$ .

    The Dominican elite do not want or like competition. They maintain an iron grip on every aspect of Dominican life. Nassief do not want anymore hotels that will compete with Fort Young, but he complains about poor airline service when his bottom line is affected.

    Trained Dominicans will not return, because they are not wanted in their own land. Trained doctors are frustrated by older ones.
    Stop living in dream land John.

    May 15, 2015

    Wow! This is unbelievable. Sales up by only 2%, expenses down by 11%, and profit up by 67%! Now the true expenses I am sure did not go down by even 5% if that 1 million dollars which the insurance gave back was not factored in. And this is the profit AFTER tax, so the true profit is over 20 million dollars. Magray sah! Who needs rocket science to know that the rates are way too high.

    Anyway Domlec, thanks for shooting yourself in the foot here and blowing your big horn. Because I hope the policy makers and IRC are taking note and will reward the customers with a 67% rate reduction based on the abundant proof you just provided. I am sure your 8 million profit of last year was more than enough already.

    It is surprising that DOMLEC recently reported a loss in revenue. Today it reported $14M profit? Wow! DOMLEC could afford to either decrease the cost of electricity for a month or give customers a free month of electricity. Asking for and expecting too much? :lol:
    Sometime ago someone told me of the high electricity bill which had to be paid. I was shocked of the amount. Dominicans should try to decrease electricity usage, if possible.

    I am a little puzzled, wasn’t it a few weeks ago Domlec was complaining about people using solar and they loosing money? These kind of monopoly companies won’t be satisfied until they suck the blood dry out of Dominicans. I hope they to use that money to improve service, invest in equipment and give customers a rebate.

    To begin with; that profit could be ours had it not been for the UWP Recklessness of the period 1995 to 1999. The preoccupation seem to be with the rate of increase in profits. What was the base figure? We have a historical problem with people making money. Where would new investment come from? Someone comment earlier that Astaphan and others arrived years ago with a bag and the shirt on their back ( and so are the Haitian brothers and sisters now)…. and another aa said the other day that you never see a China man….or anyone for that matter….run into a burning building. The question is; what is it that foreigners see that we don’t? DOMLEC is one of the most progressive companies on island; always uping their game; most responsive following a disaster, philanthropic, significant personal development of persons with minimum education to highly skilled workers. Note the high capital costs and overheads dictated by our terrain (see Phillip Nassiefs article New Chronicle article)…

    • I luv Dca
      May 19, 2015

      Funiti, please understand this……Where a monopoly exists, profits as exorbitant as DOMLEC realized is inevitable. Dominicans need to invest in a few solar panels, battery power and light up their own homes with energy from the sun. We do have a choice. An initial investment of EC$10,000 will save us hundreds of thousands in the future on electricity. Then we can listen for the next annual report of DOMLEC’s profitability. Just saying.

    OK people lets not get carried away here, companies are in business to make profits and the higher the risk the higher the returns should be to compensate the owners of the company. Let me say that i haven’t reviewed the financials, but from the statement made i am concluding as follows: There was a mismatch of revenues and expenses between the two years from the insurance proceeds which showed an increase in profits in 14 compared to 13. There was a slight increase in revenues/sales in 14 which amounts to 1.2M and an increase in efficiency. You cannot fault a company for meeting its consumers needs and at the same time improving its operational efficiency. So i say well done domlec hope to see continued high level results in the future.

What the government should do is to issue directives for those who are able and receive monthly sustenance should seek employment in their field. This should be a condition for obtaining government funds. Surely, there are some who could qualify for this type of work.

      If Domlec is not able to make a profit, they will not beable to supply electricity, so it is very good that Domlec can operate in the black. What we have to do is continue to support Domlec so that it can continue to make profit and employ people. More Dominicans should be buying shares in Domlec.

And you are still sending your money to the cubans who don’t like you and all you do is blame the government for every thing stop giving people your money learn to keep it in the black family like the Asthapans when are we going to learn. Millions are leaving our hands is there Greece in our hands or are we stupid or crazy in our head the only freedom we have is to give our money to strange people.

      May 15, 2015

      My brother, we blacks have been programmed to support those of another race rather than our own. We have been made to despise our own and support others. Instead of patronising each other, we rather patronise the Arabs who don’t care about us. Many rich people have gotten their wealth on the backs of black people. We are not united as a people and that’s where our problems lie. It is called The Willie Lynch syndrome, which has instilled the class system among us. The lighter ones against the darker ones, etc., We are usually on the bottom of the ladder anywhere we live under the sun.
      The only people who can change that is us. We need to look at ourselves collectively and determine our destiny instead of others doing so for us. We are Africans first and foremost. When we learn to accept each other for who we really are then there will be unity among us. We see ourselves as Dominicans, Antiguans, Trinidadians, Bajans, St. Lucians, etc., and not Africans. Therein lies the problem.

      Every successive government from the colonial days up to the Freedom led administration ensured that land was kept in the hands of the mulattos. This meant that generations of Dominicans were kept in perpetual servitude.

      It wasn’t until the 1980s that land reform came to pass. This allowed the lower class to use this land as collateral and attempt to start businesses etc.

  29. REAL!!!!
    May 15, 2015

    Profits are up 67% after paying corporate tax of 30%.

    This is why Dominicans should be investing heavily in renewable energy for their homes.

    I don’t have to see the books but base on top analysis____ without significant increase in customers through increase in population or influx of new factories on island. Domlec is clearly ripping off the poor consumers an island population of 68000 people.

    We need more companies on island offering a renewable energy solution to the population.

    Over 14 Million in profit for 2014 and Domlec have the nerve to stop the process where customers pay their light bills by Credit Card? This is the most primitive and backward decision that a Company serving every Dominican could take. This is very inconveniencing and Domlec need to revisit this decision. A Company needs to implement policies which will make the lives of customers more comfortable and rewarding. They sight that they have to pay a 2% tax on credit card payments. What is a 2% tax at the expense of the satisfaction and convenience of Customers. All small companies offer this service to its customers. I know that some Companies take advantage of the situation and pay their bills with personal credit cards to enable them to collect miles on Airlines etc. Domlec could easily implement a decision that NO COMMERCIAL BILLS ARE PAYED WITH CREDIT CARDS.
    I hope Management and possibly Government can intercede to ensure that this matter is addressed at the earliest.

    Dominica have the highest electricity rates in the Caribbean which discourage foreign investments and add a heavier burden on Dominicans since they are paying a higher rate. This is nothing to be proud of this is actually robbery, a monopoly making 15 million in profit in a country of 68000 people.

    Good God, profits up by 67% on the previous year. In any other organised country that would be considered profiteering. Surely this mammoth increase is not as a result of many new customers.

    This is exactly what happens when one company has a monopoly on the market and rivals cease to exist. This is very bad for Dominica. I look forward to seeing competition from solar companies

  49. No Surprise

    • May 15, 2015

      That’s not true at all. On the contrary Domlec is the ONLY company which passed on the decreasing rates in fuel prices to their consumers. Prices of all other commodities remained up while electricity fluctuated to reflect the changing fuel prices

        If you feel like you are working like a donkey why when you get the break to speak up and say how you feel you keep your mouth shut and all your say is you have no problems you are happy with eveything at work. Oh I see so you all want to apply for job and say yes to everything in the interview when you get the job you dont want to work. hahahahahaha surprise surprise I cant believe its you “Who feels it knows it that speaking so” Hmmmm

    Owner ship by the people buy it now before the new power come on stream sell power to the french islands to pay for it . All the Lawers and P.H D. People in dominica should educate their people in owner ship . Do we have people to run and operate hotels, we must keep our eyes on the price. We have to learn to own and run things well we were trained to work we must change that we spend more time in Roseau begging than thinking. The British help us set up a university to work for them we must change the way we teach kids. One contractor went to the university of the westindes his name is Williams construction company he does all the big jobs in the caribean and he is a white Bajan . The Blacks went to the same school and they are all working for governments. We are very good at quoting Shakespeare.

      They should invest in DOMLEC and be some of the stakeholders.

    that is not a lot of money, especially since DOMLEC has to do capital improvements

        if domlec was making a loss you should be more worried. a failing enterprise like domlec would require a bailout (tax money) by the government, and that would mean social security would loses (your money again).

        now 14 M, what is that in terms of capital improvements? improvements in the power grid? reduction of loss of electricity due to capacity.

        the funny is this, domlec can more probably make larger profits, if they produce electricity cheaper, and make more money on increased usage

      We expect they will pay their fair share of taxes and on time.

        I dare you “The Facts” to go to inland revenue and enquire whether or not the taxes are paid and on time. I can attest to the fact that DOMLEC is always the first company to pay their taxes on time every month un like some companies owned by ur leaders and friends who dont pay at all and even have a caveat filed so that Inland revenue cant interfere in their accounts etc. So my dear DOMLEC pays their taxes well and on time.

    A 67% increase in net after-tax profit over the previous year!!! INSANE! I have never heard of that! Maybe…just maybe DOMLEC can reduce its exorbitant rates so Dominicans can have a life?

      When you want to leave above your means which 4 tv is each room and all of them on every day and you hardly put them off. etc and have all electrical appliances that comes out then you got to pay ur damn bills. All DOMLEC staff pay bills as well ok.

      Well well if you are not pleased with your salary why havent you brought it up to ur supervisor and HR manager when you are appraised etc. You keep saying that all is well with you. One thing I know for a fact DOMLEC can get A+++ for the manner in which it treats its staff members.
