ULTS CONFERENCE CALL
TSX : AXY
Forward-Looking Information
This presentation contains certain “forward-looking information” within the meaning of Canadian securities laws, which may include, but is not limited to,
statements with respect to future events or future performance, management’s expectations regarding Alterra’s production capacity, results of operations,
cash flows, revenues and requirements for capital, future demand for and prices of electricity, and Alterra’s business prospects and opportunities.
These statements reflect the current views of Alterra with respect to future events and are necessarily based upon a number of assumptions and estimates
that, while considered reasonable by Alterra, are inherently subject to significant business, economic, political and social uncertainties and contingencies.
Many factors, both known and unknown, could cause Alterra’s actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from the results,
performance or achievements that are or may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements contained in this presentation, and Alterra has
made assumptions based on or related to many of these factors. Such factors include, without limitation: fluctuations in currency markets (particularly with
respect to the Icelandic krona, the U.S. dollar and Canadian dollar); risks related to the technological and operational nature of Alterra’s business; changes
in national or regional governments, legislation, regulation, permitting or taxation; political or economic developments in Canada, the United States, Iceland
or other countries where Alterra may carry on business; risks and hazards associated with the business of renewable energy generation; risks relating to the
creditworthiness and financial condition of suppliers and other parties which Alterra will deal with; inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance to
cover these risks and hazards; employee relations; relationships with and claims by local communities and First Nations; availability and costs of equipment
and labour; litigation; the success and timely completion of planned expansion and development programs; the growth rate in net electricity consumption;
support and demand for renewable energy; government initiatives to support the development of renewable energy generation; the reliability of technical
data and capital expenditure estimates; and availability of capital to fund development and expansion programs. Forward-looking information and
statements are also based upon the assumption that none of the identified risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forwardlooking information and statements will occur.
Although Alterra has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause
results not to be as anticipated, estimated, described or intended. There can be no assurance that the forward-looking information will prove to be
accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information. Accordingly, prospective investors should
not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. Other than as required by applicable securities laws, Alterra does not assume any obligation to
update or revise such forward-looking information to reflect new events or circumstances.

Here and elsewhere, EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure as defined in the Company’s MD&A.
Pro forma operating results for Dokie 1 reflect what the results would have been if the Company's ownership had been 25.5% in Q3 2013.
3Q 2013 includes the results from ABW Solar, a 50 MW solar generation project located in Ontario, Canada, that was sold on November 29, 2013.
•
Generation and revenue were lower in 3Q 2014 despite strong operating performance (100% of budget) vs. 3Q
2013 where generation was 103% of plan (when including pro forma generation at the Montrose facility)
•
EBITDA increased overall per increased sales at HS Orka and lower head office expenses
