  December
  2018 2017 Change
Revenue EUR 137.6 million EUR 117.6 million 17.0 %
Adjusted EBITDA* EUR 19.3 million EUR 27.7 million -30.3 %
       
  January - December
  2018 2017 Change
Revenue EUR 1 262.1 million EUR 1 100.8 million  14.7 %
Adjusted EBITDA* EUR 224.8 million EUR 238.7 million   -5.8 %

In January-December 2018, Lietuvos Energija generated revenue of EUR 1 262.1 million, which is 14.7% more compared to a respective period of 2017 (EUR 1 100.8 million). The Group's revenue has grown due to the price change in the gas and electricity markets. Also, income growth has been influenced by the Energijos Tiekimas subsidiary in Poland. 


The adjusted EBITDA indicator of the Group in January-December 2018 was equal to EUR 224.8 million, i.e. 5.8% less compared to a respective period of 2017 (EUR 238.7 million). Better result from the electricity and gas distribution activities due to increased investment in renewal and modernization of distribution networks was outweighed by the lower results from the electricity trading activities. It was influenced by high electricity prices in the market. Increased demand for electricity with high electricity purchase prices, but fixed sales prices have negatively affected the EBITDA of this segment.
