Commodity market

WSE added commodity trading to its operating segments in 2010. The poee WSE Energy Market opened in December 2010.

WSE acquired the Polish Power Exchange in 2012 and held 100% of its shares and votes at the end of 2012. WSE holds 100% of shares of the Warsaw Commodity Clearing House through its subsidiary PolPX.

In those circumstances, the WSE Management Board has decided to concentrate trading in electricity in the WSE Group within PolPX and to discontinue organising trading on the poee WSE Energy Market. Consequently, the presentation of the activities of the WSE Group on the commodity market in the following sections of this Report focuses only on offer of the Polish Power Exchange.
