Just Energy has completed a strong quarter of growth. A highlight was the smooth merger of our business with that of our most recent acquisition, Universal Energy Group. The second quarter results are the first that consolidate the Universal business and they demonstrate the accretion inherent in that transaction.

Operating measures showed strong results with growth in all key financial measures. There were two reasons for this, accretion from the acquisition of Universal Energy Group ("Universal") and very successful marketing by our team of independent sales contractors.

Just Energy acquired Universal and its 430,000 long term customers by issuing 16% of the Fund's total units to Universal shareholders. Accordingly, growth of more than 16% year over year would be accretive. The table above shows Just Energy's growth which for the second quarter, exceeds 16%. The first column shows nominal year over year growth and the second shows growth per unit which better shows actual accretion. Overall, our growth is higher than 16% in every category.

To date, the merger of Universal operations is proceeding smoothly. The consolidation of administrative functions and elimination of overlap is well underway and synergies will be achieved of $10 million in general and administrative cost savings. The combination of our two sales forces is also ahead of expectations with few key sales contractors lost in the transition. Early results from the merged National Home Services water heater division have also been strong.

The tables shown earlier detail the operating results of the Fund for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009. Margin per customer remained strong aided by newly added customer margins of $204 per year, reflecting the very strong take-up of the Green Energy Option product.

The numbers include operating losses at Terra Grain Fuels, the ethanol plant acquired as part of the Universal acquisition, and the start up of National Home Services, our water heater sales and rental business. Both these businesses are expected to be self financing by fiscal year end which should enhance our growth in future periods.

Distributable cash has grown less than gross margin due to the onset of significant cash tax on the Fund's growing US operations and Universal. Just Energy is actively looking for opportunities to minimize this impact.

The Universal acquisition was not the only driver of growth in the second quarter. Management's efforts to reenergize our salesforce over the past year continue to be successful. Gross customer additions of 140,000 achieved by our sales forces was the strongest quarter in the history of Just Energy.

Net customer additions through marketing for the quarter were 36,000, again the highest total of any recent quarter. While this was up more than 200% versus the comparable quarter of fiscal 2009 and Q1 of fiscal 2010, it was adversely affected by continued high attrition in foreclosure impacted US natural gas markets. There was a small improvement in this attrition for the quarter moving from an annualized 31% to an annualized 28% and management is hopeful that this trend will continue. Attrition in our other markets was in line with company targets.

Sales of Green Energy Option ("GEO") electricity and natural gas products continue to be a major success. Year to date, 41% of our new customers have elected green supply taking, on average, 78% of their consumption through GEO.

In regards to the second quarter, CEO Ken Hartwick noted: "For the second consecutive quarter, Just Energy has delivered substantial growth in the face of a continued deep recession. This is the seventh consecutive year of double digit growth for our company."

Mr. Hartwick added: "Recently acquired Universal Energy has shown its potential as a contributor to our future growth. Merging the two operations has been a tremendous challenge to our team and I want to congratulate them on the success of their efforts to date."

"Our other main success was marketing. We signed more customers in the second quarter than any quarter in the history of the company. Combining this with higher margins on these new customers driven by very strong take up of our GEO product, it is difficult not to be optimistic about the future of Just Energy."

Chair Rebecca MacDonald added: "We have provided guidance that per unit growth in gross margin and distributable cash will be 5% to 10% in fiscal 2010. We are maintaining this forecast at this point in time, despite the fact that the first six months have seen growth of 34% and 29% respectively. The Universal acquisition brought with it 145,000 customers in markets where we will not operate or with short term contracts which we do not expect to renew. These customers generated margin of approximately $9.5 million in the second quarter which will not continue in future periods. Further, there will be more merger realization costs for the remainder of the year. Universal is an accretive transaction but the true accretion will not be seen until fiscal 2011."

"The growth we have noted in the second quarter is another step toward our goal of growing our cash flow by the 2011 trust tax conversion date with the expectation that a converted Just Energy would be able to pay $1.24 in dividends replacing the more heavily taxed $1.24 distribution. This cannot be assured but we continue to be optimistic that it is a realistic expectation. It appears clear that we will need another special distribution to offset undistributed profits for calendar 2009. We expect that this distribution will be in the range of $0.10 to $0.15 per unit and will be paid early next year."

The Fund

Just Energy's business involves the sale of natural gas and/or electricity to residential and commercial customers under long-term fixed-price and price-protected contracts. By fixing the price of natural gas or electricity under its fixed-price or price-protected program contracts for a period of up to five years, Just Energy's customers offset their exposure to changes in the price of these essential commodities. Just Energy, which commenced business in 1997, derives its margin or gross profit from the difference between the fixed price at which it is able to sell the commodities to its customers and the fixed price at which it purchases the associated volumes from its suppliers.

The Fund also offers "green" products through its Green Energy Option (GEO) program. The electricity GEO product offers the customer the option of having all or a portion of his or her electricity sourced from renewable green sources such as wind, run of the river hydro or biomass. The gas GEO product offers carbon offset credits which will allow the customer to reduce or eliminate the carbon footprint for their home or business. Management believes that these products will not only add to profits, but also increase sales receptivity and improve renewal rates.

In addition, through National Home Services, the Fund sells and rents high efficiency and tankless water heaters and produces and sells wheat-based ethanol through its subsidiary Terra Grain Fuels.

Non GAAP Measures

Adjusted net income (loss) represents the net income (loss) excluding the impact of mark-to-market gains (losses) arising from Canadian GAAP requirements for derivative financial instruments on our future supply positions. Just Energy ensures that customer margins are protected by entering into fixed-price supply contracts. In accordance with GAAP, the customer margins are not marked-to-market but there is a requirement to mark-to-market the future supply contracts. This creates unrealized gains (losses) depending upon current supply pricing volatility. Management believes that these short-term mark-to-market non-cash gains (losses) do not impact the long-term financial performance of the Fund.

Management also believes the best basis for analyzing both the Fund's operating results and the amount available for distribution is to focus on amounts actually received ("seasonally adjusted"). Seasonally adjusted analysis applies solely to the Canadian gas market (excluding Alberta and B.C.). Just Energy receives payment from the LDCs upon delivery of the commodity not when the customer actually consumes the gas. Seasonally adjusted analysis eliminates seasonal commodity consumption variances and recognizes amount available for distribution based on cash received from the LDCs.

Forward-Looking Statements

The Fund's press releases may contain forward-looking statements including statements pertaining to customer revenues and margins, customer additions and renewals, customer attrition, customer consumption levels, distributable cash and treatment under governmental regulatory regimes. These statements are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to, levels of customer natural gas and electricity consumption, rates of customer additions and renewals, rates of customer attrition, fluctuations in natural gas and electricity prices, changes in regulatory regimes and decisions by regulatory authorities, competition and dependence on certain suppliers. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect the Fund's operations, financial results or distribution levels are included in the Fund's annual information form and other reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities which can be accessed through the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com or through the Fund's website at www.justenergy.com.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS ("MD&A") - November 5, 2009

Overview

The following discussion and analysis is a review of the financial condition and results of operations of Just Energy Income Fund ("Just Energy" or the "Fund") for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009 and has been prepared with all information available up to and including November 5, 2009. This analysis should be read in conjunction with the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009, as well as the audited consolidated financial statements and related MD&A for the year ended March 31, 2009, contained in the Fund's 2009 Annual Report. The financial information contained herein has been prepared in accordance with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). All dollar amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars. Quarterly reports, the annual report and supplementary information can be found under "reports and filings" on our corporate website at www.justenergy.com. Additional information can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Just Energy is an open-ended, limited-purpose trust established under the laws of the Province of Ontario to hold securities and to distribute the income of its directly or indirectly owned operating subsidiaries and affiliates: Just Energy Ontario L.P., Just Energy Manitoba L.P., Just Energy Quebec L.P., Just Energy (B.C.) Limited Partnership, Just Energy Alberta L.P. ("JE Alberta"), Alberta Energy Savings L.P. ("AESLP"), Just Energy Illinois Corp. ("JEIC"), Just Energy New York Corp. ("JENYC"), Just Energy Indiana Corp., Just Energy Texas L.P., Just Energy Exchange Corp. ("JEEC"), Universal Energy Corp., Universal Gas and Electric Corp., Commerce Energy, Inc. ("Commerce"), National Energy Corp. ("NEC") operating under the trade name of National Home Services ("NHS"), Newten Home Comfort L.P. ("NHCLP"), and Terra Grain Fuels Inc. ("TGF"), collectively, the "Just Energy Group".

Just Energy's business involves the sale of natural gas and/or electricity to residential and commercial customers under long-term fixed-price and price-protected contracts. By fixing the price of natural gas or electricity under its fixed-price or price-protected program contracts for a period of up to five years, Just Energy's customers offset their exposure to changes in the price of these essential commodities. Just Energy, which commenced business in 1997, derives its margin or gross profit from the difference between the fixed price at which it is able to sell the commodities to its customers and the fixed price at which it purchases the associated volumes from its suppliers. In addition, through NEC and NHCLP, the Fund sells and rents high efficiency and tankless water heaters. TGF, an ethanol producer, operates an ethanol facility in Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan.

The Fund also offers "green" products through its Green Energy Option ("GEO") program. The electricity GEO product offers the customer the option of having all or a portion of their electricity sourced from renewable green sources such as wind, run of the river hydro or biomass. The gas GEO product offers carbon offset credits which will allow the customer to reduce or eliminate the carbon footprint for their home or business. Management believes that these new products will not only add to profits, but also increase sales receptivity and improve renewal rates.

Forward-looking information

This MD&A contains certain forward-looking information statements pertaining to customer additions and renewals, customer consumption levels, distributable cash and treatment under governmental regulatory regimes. These statements are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to, levels of customer natural gas and electricity consumption, rates of customer additions and renewals, fluctuations in natural gas and electricity prices, changes in regulatory regimes and decisions by regulatory authorities, competition and dependence on certain suppliers. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect the Fund's operations, financial results or distribution levels are included in the Fund's annual information form and other reports on file with Canadian security regulatory authorities which can be accessed on our corporate website at www.justenergy.com or through the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

Policy Change

Effective July 1, 2008, the Fund changed its practice from treating future supply hedging positions as hedges for accounting purposes. Accordingly, all mark to market adjustments for supply contracts are reflected in the consolidated statements of operations. In the view of management, the previous practice offered no greater clarity for the financial statement user and was very labour intensive and costly to produce. The new accounting practice consolidates all the unrealized, non-cash changes in value of future supply into a single line on the consolidated statements of operations. The Fund's MD&A reports the adjusted net income excluding all non-cash mark to market adjustments for all supply-related derivative instruments and the related tax effect. The expected future net margin is set based on the derivative instruments and is effectively unchanged with commodity market movements. Given commodity volatility and the size of the Fund, the annual swings in mark to market on these positions can be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Just Energy believes that the result of this practice change and the associated MD&A disclosure is that actual period operating results will be more transparent for investors.

Key terms

"Attrition" means customers whose contracts were terminated primarily due to relocation or death, or cancelled by Just Energy due to delinquent accounts.

"Delivered volume" represents the actual volume of gas and electricity provided on behalf of customers to the LDCs for the period.

"Failed to renew" means customers who did not renew expiring contracts at the end of their term.

"Gross margin per RCE" represents the gross margin realized on Just Energy's customer base, including both low margin customers acquired through various acquisitions and gains/losses from sales of excess commodity supply.

"LDC" means a local distribution company, the natural gas or electricity distributor for a regulatory or governmentally defined geographic area.

"RCE" means residential customer equivalent or the "customer", which is a unit of measurement equivalent to a customer using, as regards natural gas, 2,815 m3 (or 106 GJs or 1,000 Therms or 1,025 CCFs) of natural gas on an annual basis and, as regards electricity, 10 MWh (or 10,000 kWh) of electricity on an annual basis, which represents the approximate amount of gas and electricity, respectively, used by a typical household in Ontario.

Non-GAAP financial measures

All non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Seasonally adjusted sales and seasonally adjusted gross margin

Management believes the best basis for analyzing both the Fund's results and the amount available for distribution is to focus on amounts actually received ("seasonally adjusted") because this figure provides the margin earned on actual customer consumption. Seasonally adjusted sales and gross margin are not defined performance measures under Canadian GAAP. Seasonally adjusted analysis applies solely to the Canadian gas market and specifically to Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba.

No seasonal adjustment is required for electricity as the supply is balanced daily. In the other gas markets, payments for supply by the LDCs are aligned with customer consumption.

Cash Available for Distribution

"Distributable cash after marketing expense" refers to the net cash available for distribution to Unitholders. Seasonally adjusted gross margin is the principal contributor to cash available for distribution. Distributable cash is calculated by the Fund as seasonally adjusted gross margin, adjusted for cash items including general and administrative expenses, marketing expenses, bad debt expense, interest expense, corporate taxes, capital taxes and other items. This non-GAAP measure may not be comparable to other income funds.

"Distributable cash after gross margin replacement" represents the net cash available for distribution to Unitholders as defined above. However, only the marketing expenses associated with maintaining the Fund's gross margin at a stable level equal to that in place at the beginning of the period are deducted. Management believes that this is more representative of the ongoing operating performance of the Fund because it includes all expenditures necessary for the retention of existing customers and the addition of new margin to replace those of customers that have not been renewed. This non-GAAP measure may not be comparable to other income funds.

For reconciliation to cash from operating activities please refer to the "Cash Available for Distribution and distributions" analysis on page 6.

Adjusted net income

"Adjusted net income" represents the net income (loss) excluding the impact of mark to market gains (losses) arising from derivative financial instruments on our future supply. Just Energy ensures that customer margins are protected by entering into fixed-price supply contracts. In accordance with GAAP, the associated customer contracts are not marked to market, but there is a requirement to mark to market the future supply contracts. This creates unrealized gains (losses) that are not offset by the related customer gains (losses).

Management believes that these short-term mark to market non-cash gains (losses) do not impact the long-term financial performance of the Fund. The related future supply has been sold under long-term customer contracts at fixed prices; therefore the annual movement in the theoretical value of this future supply is not an appropriate measure of current or future operating performance.

Standardized Distributable Cash

Standardized Distributable Cash is a non-GAAP measure developed to provide a consistent and comparable measurement of distributable cash across entities.

"Standardized Distributable Cash" is defined as cash flows from operating activities, as reported in accordance with GAAP, less an adjustment for total capital expenditures as reported in accordance with GAAP and restrictions on distributions arising from compliance with financial covenants restrictive at the date of the calculation of Standardized Distributable Cash.

For reconciliation to cash from operating activities please refer to the "Standardized Distributable Cash and Cash Available for Distribution" analysis on page 10.

Acquisition of Universal Energy Group

On July 1, 2009, Just Energy completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding common shares of Universal Energy Group Ltd. ("UEG") pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Under the Arrangement, UEG shareholders received 0.58 of an exchangeable share ("Exchangeable Share") of JEEC, a subsidiary of Just Energy, for each UEG common share held. In aggregate, 21,271,804 Exchangeable Shares were issued pursuant to the Arrangement. Each Exchangeable Share is exchangeable for a Trust Unit on a one-for-one basis at any time at the option of the holder and entitles the holder to a monthly dividend equal to 66 2/3% of the monthly distribution paid by Just Energy on a Trust Unit. JEEC also assumed all the covenants and obligations of UEG in respect of the UEG's outstanding 6% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures (the "Debentures"). On conversion of the Debentures, holders will be entitled to receive 0.58 of an Exchangeable Share in lieu of each UEG common share that the holder was previously entitled to receive on conversion.

The acquisition of UEG was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The Fund allocated the purchase price to the identified assets and liabilities acquired based on their fair values at the time of acquisition as follows:

All contract and intangible assets are amortized over the average remaining life at the time of acquisition. The gas and electricity contracts acquired are amortized over periods ranging from 8 to 57 months. The water heater contracts are amortized over 174 months and the intangible assets are amortized over 6 months. The purchase price allocation is considered preliminary and as a result, it may be adjusted during the year.

Operations

Gas

In each of the markets that Just Energy operates, it is required to deliver gas to the LDCs for its customers throughout the year. Gas customers are charged a fixed price for the full term of their contract. For our residential customers, Just Energy purchases gas supply in advance of marketing. The LDC provides historical customer usage to enable Just Energy to purchase an approximation of matched supply. Furthermore, in many markets, Just Energy mitigates exposure to customer usage by purchasing options that cover potential differences in customer consumption due to weather variations. The cost of this strategy is incorporated in the price to the customer. To the extent that balancing requirements are outside the options purchased, Just Energy bears the financial responsibility for fluctuations in customer usage. Volume variances may result in either excess or short supply. Excess supply is sold in the spot market resulting in either a gain or loss compared to the weighted average cost of supply. In the case of greater than expected gas consumption, Just Energy must purchase the short supply at the market price, which may reduce or increase the customer gross margin typically realized. For our commercial customers, Just Energy purchases gas supply that matches the forecasted new customer volume required.

Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Michigan

In Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Michigan, the volumes delivered for a customer typically remain constant throughout the year. Just Energy does not recognize sales until the customer actually consumes the gas. During the winter months, gas is consumed at a rate which is greater than delivery and in the summer months, deliveries to LDCs exceed customer consumption. Just Energy receives cash from the LDCs as the gas is delivered, which is even throughout the year.

Manitoba and Alberta

In Manitoba and Alberta, the volume of gas delivered is based on the estimated consumption for each month. Therefore, the amount of gas delivered in winter months is higher than in the spring and summer months. Consequently, cash received from customers and LDCs will be higher in the winter months.

Alberta's regulatory environment is different from the other Canadian provincial markets. In Alberta, Just Energy is required to invoice and receive payments directly from customers. AESLP entered into an agreement with EPCOR Utilities Inc. ("EPCOR") for the provision of billing and collection services in Alberta which was amended and extended in December 2008. Pursuant to the amended agreement, EPCOR will continue to provide billing and collection services for AESLP until November 30, 2011 with respect to AESLP's existing customers. In September 2009, Just Energy, through JE Alberta, began billing and collection services directly for all new customers signed as well as renewing customers.

New York, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and California

In New York, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and California, the volume of gas delivered is based on the estimated consumption and storage requirements for each month. Therefore the amount of gas delivered in winter months is higher than in the spring and summer months. Consequently, cash flow received from these States' is greatest during the third and fourth (winter) quarters, as normally, cash is received from the LDCs in the same period as customer consumption.

Electricity

Ontario, Alberta, New York, Texas, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan and California

Just Energy does not bear the risk for variations in customer consumption in any of the electricity markets in which it operates other than for certain customers in Texas and the customers acquired in the Universal acquisition (customers located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan and California). In Ontario and New York, Just Energy provides customers with price protection for the majority of their electricity requirements. The customers experience either a small balancing charge or credit on each bill due to fluctuations in prices applicable to their volume requirements not covered by a fixed price. In Alberta, Just Energy offers a load-following product for which it has acquired load-following supply and therefore does not have exposure to variances in customer consumption. To the extent possible given the competitive nature and market knowledge of customers, future offerings for Texas customers will be a load balanced product and Just Energy will not bear the risk for variations in customer consumption.

Cash flow from electricity operations is greatest during the second and fourth quarters (summer and winter), as electricity consumption is typically highest during these periods.

Water heaters

NHCLP commenced providing Ontario residential customers with a long term water heater rental program in the summer of 2008, offering tankless water heaters, high efficiency conventional and power vented tanks. On July 2, 2009, NEC, a wholly owned home services subsidiary of UEG, acquired Newten Home Comfort Inc., an arm's length third party that held a 20% interest of NHCLP. Accordingly, NHCLP became a wholly owned subsidiary of Just Energy. NEC, which began operations in April 2008, operates under the trade name of National Home Services ("NHS"). On September 30, 2009, NEC acquired substantially all of the assets of NHCLP, including all of NHCLP's customer water heater rental agreements. See page 18 for additional information on NEC.

Ethanol division

Just Energy, through JEEC also owns a 66.7% interest in TGF, a 150-million-litre capacity wheat-based ethanol plant located in Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan. The plant produces ethanol and high protein distillers dried grain ("DDG") from the wheat supply. See page 19 for additional information on TGF.

Distributable cash

Distributable cash after gross margin replacement for the current quarter ended September 30, 2009 was $52.3 million ($0.39 per unit), up 50% from $34.8 million ($0.31 per unit) in fiscal 2009. The growth reflects a 74% increase in seasonally adjusted gross margin. Factors contributing to margin growth include a 29% year over year increase in total customers, of which 24% related to the 430,000 acquired customers from Universal. The new Universal customers, higher margin per customer due to opportunistic pricing and continued strong acceptance of the GEO product as well as improved supply management, particularly in Texas, resulted in increased distributable cash. On a per unit basis (reflecting the units issued to acquire Universal), distributable cash after gross margin replacement and gross margin were up 26% and 43% respectively reflecting solid operating performance and per unit accretion due to the price paid for Universal.

The higher gross margins in the quarter were offset to a degree by increased general and administrative costs and bad debt expenses. Increased general and administrative costs of 93% over the prior year comparable quarter were primarily due to the Universal acquisition, staffing costs in our corporate office to support our current and future growth, and an increase in telecom and collection costs. As administrative overlap efficiencies continue to be realized in future quarters, growth in general and administrative costs should track margin growth. Bad debt expense increased in the second quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to 2009 primarily due to the increased volumes in those markets where the Fund bears the credit risk as well as the weak economic conditions in the U.S. markets.

Just Energy spent $16.1 million in marketing expenses to maintain its current level of gross margin, which represents 60% of the total marketing expense for the quarter. A further $11.0 million was spent to increase future gross margin resulting in the 36,000 net RCE additions for the quarter. Management's estimate of the future contracted gross margin increased to $1,213.8 million from $1,003.2 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

Distributable cash after all marketing expenses amounted to $41.3 million ($0.31 per unit) for the second quarter of fiscal 2010, an increase of 19% per unit from $28.4 million ($0.26 per unit) in the prior year comparable quarter. The increase is due to accretion from the Universal purchase and net customer additions offset by increased expenditures noted above. The lower rate of increase for distributable cash was due to the higher marketing costs associated with the significant increase in net customer additions (excluding acquired customers) quarter over quarter. The payout ratio after deduction of all marketing expenses for the current quarter was 104% versus 122% in fiscal 2009.

Distributable cash after gross margin replacement for the six months ended September 30, 2009 was $94.5 million ($0.76 per unit), an increase of 29% per unit from $65.8 million ($0.59 per unit) in the prior year comparable period. Distributable cash after marketing expenses was $77.4 million ($0.63 per unit) for the first six months of fiscal 2010, an increase of 19% per unit from $58.7 million ($0.53 per unit) for the same period last year. The payout ratio after all marketing expenses for the six month period of fiscal 2010 was 101% versus 116% for the six months ended September 30, 2009.

For further information on the changes in the gross margin, please refer to "Sales and gross margin - Seasonally adjusted" on page 13 and "General and administrative expenses", "Marketing expenses", "Bad debt expense" and "Interest expense" are further clarified on pages 19 and 20.

Adjusted net income

Adjusted net loss was $(9.7) million for the quarter ($(0.07) per unit) down from net income of $6.9 million ($0.06 per unit) in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Adjusted net income was negatively impacted by the amortization of the Universal acquired customer contracts and the increased general and administrative costs incurred for Universal as Just Energy works towards consolidating various processes. Also contributing to the change are losses from NHS and TGF as both businesses are in start-up phases. For the six months ended September 30, 2009, adjusted net income was $14.9 million ($0.12 per unit) as compared to $36.9 million or $0.33 per unit in the same period last year.

(1)Includes non-cash working capital balances


Net income (loss) includes non-cash gains and losses associated with the changes in the current market value of Just Energy's derivative instruments. These instruments form part of the Fund's requirement to purchase commodity according to estimated demand and, as such, changes in value do not impact the distribution policy or the long-term financial performance of the Fund. Effective July 1, 2008, Just Energy elected to discontinue the practice of hedge accounting and all gains and losses on derivative instruments have been recorded in Change in fair value of derivative instruments.

The change in fair value associated with these derivatives included in the net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was a gain of $138.5 million versus a loss of $1,022.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.

The Fund has, in the past, paid out distributions that were higher than both financial statement net income and operating cash flow. In the view of management, the non-GAAP measure, distributable cash, is an appropriate measure of the Fund's ability to distribute funds, as the cost of carrying incremental working capital necessary for the growth of the business has been deducted in the distributable cash calculation. Further, investment in the addition of new customers intended to increase cash flow is expensed in the financial statements while the original customer base was capitalized. In addition, the capital expenditures for NHS and TGF are funded through the credit facility and debt instruments. Management believes that the current level of distributions is sustainable in the foreseeable future.

The timing differences between distributions and cash flow from operations created by the cost of carrying incremental working capital due to business seasonality and expansion are funded by the operating credit facility.

(1)Capital expenditures incurred in the quarter are effectively funded out
of the credit facility. The majority of capital expenditures in the
current quarter related to the purchase of water heaters for subsequent
rental. These expenditures expand the productive capacity of the
business.
(2)Change in non-cash working capital is excluded from the calculation of
Cash Available for Distribution as the Fund has a $250.0 million credit
facility which is available for use to fund working capital requirements.
This eliminates the potential impact of timing distortions relating to
the respective items.
(3)Payments to the holders of Class A preference shares are equivalent to
distributions. The number of Class A preference shares outstanding is
included in the denominator of any per unit calculation.


In accordance with the CICA July 2007 interpretive release "Standardized Distributable Cash in Income Trusts and other Flow-Through Entities" the Fund has presented the distributable cash calculation to conform to this guidance. In summary, for the purposes of the Fund, Standardized Distributable Cash is defined as the periodic cash flows from operating activities, including the effects of changes in non-cash working capital less total capital expenditures as reported in the GAAP financial statements.

Financing Strategy

The Fund's $250.0 million credit facility will be sufficient to meet the Fund's short-term working capital and capital expenditure requirements for the gas and electricity business. As part of the acquisition of Universal additional credit facilities and debt were recorded and are explained further on page 23. Working capital requirements can vary widely due to seasonal fluctuations and planned U.S.-related growth. In the long-term, the Fund may be required to access the equity or debt markets in order to fund significant acquisitions.

Productive Capacity

Just Energy's business involves the sale of natural gas and/or electricity to residential and commercial customers under long-term, fixed-price contracts. As such, the Fund's productive capacity is determined by the gross margin earned from the contract price and the related supply cost.

The productive capacity of Just Energy is achieved through the retention of existing customers and the addition of new customers to replace those that have not been renewed. The productive capacity is maintained and grows through independent contractors, call centre renewal efforts and various mail campaigns.

Effectively all of the marketing costs related to customer contracts are expensed immediately but fall into two categories. The first represents marketing expenses to maintain gross margin at pre-existing levels and by definition maintain productive capacity. The second category is marketing expenditures to add new margin which therefore expands productive capacity. As noted above, capital expenditures by the Fund are utilized to expand the productive capacity of the business.

(1)Includes a one-time Special Distribution of $18.6 million in Q3, fiscal
2009 and $44.7 million in Q3, fiscal 2008.


The Fund's results reflect seasonality as consumption is greatest during the third and fourth quarters (winter quarters). While year over year quarterly comparisons are relevant, sequential quarters will vary materially. The main impact of this will be higher distributable cash with a lower payout ratio in the third and fourth quarters and lower distributable cash with a higher payout ratio in the first and second quarters excluding any special distribution.

Analysis of the second quarter

Sales are typically lower in the first and second quarters because gas consumption is highest during the winter months and approximately 52% of the current customer base is gas customers. The 48% increase in sales compared to the prior comparable quarter is primarily attributable to the acquisition of Universal and strong U.S. growth in our existing markets. The adjusted net loss was $(9.7) million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. Lower adjusted net income was attributable to margin growth due to the amortization recorded on the acquired Universal contracts and customer relationships in the quarter.

The distributable cash after customer gross margin replacement was $52.3 million up 50% from $34.8 million in the prior comparable quarter. The increase in gross margin was due to the margin earned on the acquired customers from Universal, net customer additions through marketing and higher per customer margins.

Distributable cash after marketing expenses was $41.3 million, an increase of 46% from $28.4 million in the prior comparable quarter. Distributions for the quarter were $42.8 million, up 24% over the same period last year reflecting a 3% per unit increase quarter over quarter. The payout ratio in a seasonally slow quarter was 104% versus 122% in the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

(1)For Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec and Michigan gas markets.


On a seasonally adjusted basis, sales and gross margin increased by 41% and 67%, respectively, to $543.2 million and $103.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009 over the second quarter of fiscal 2009. The 41% increase in sales was due to a 29% increase in customers (24% of which were acquired with Universal) and favourable weather-based consumption, largely in Texas. Gross margin increased at a greater rate than sales due to higher realized margin per customer, particularly in the U.S.

Total sales and gross margin for the first six months of fiscal 2010 totaled $975.8 million and $178.1 million versus $788.0 million and $121.5 million for the same period last year.

Canada

Seasonally adjusted sales were $369.8 million for the quarter, up 20% from $307.3 million for the comparable quarter in fiscal 2009. Seasonally adjusted gross margins were $62.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010, an increase of 19% from $52.1 million in the same quarter last year.

Gas

Gas sales increased by 9% to $195.3 million and gross margin decreased by 7% to $30.3 million, versus the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Customer consumption increased due to a 3% increase in number of customers (including Universal) and slightly colder temperatures in Ontario. Gross margin was down quarter over quarter due to a decline in average margin per customer reflecting lower margin per customer on the acquired Universal and CEG customers. CEG was a Western Canadian marketer of natural gas wholly owned by SemCanada Energy Company ("SemCanada"). For the six months ended September 30, 2009, sales and gross margins were $378.6 million and $61.7 million, an increase of 4% and decrease of 8%, respectively, over the prior year comparable period.

After allowance for balancing and inclusive of acquisitions, average gross margin per customer ("GM/RCE") for the three months ended September 30, 2009 amounted to $175/RCE, compared to $214/RCE from the prior year comparable period. The GM/RCE value includes an appropriate allowance for the bad debt expense in Alberta.

Electricity

Electricity sales were $174.4 million for the quarter, an increase of 36% from the second quarter of fiscal 2009. The increased sales are attributable to the acquisition of 215,000 Universal customers. Gross margin increased by 62% from the prior year comparable quarter to $31.7 million due to the increase in customers and increased margin per customer resulting from improved supply management processes. Gross margin also benefitted in the quarter from the Universal load-following customers which produced higher margins. Just Energy anticipates moving these customers to a balanced product when system integrations are completed.

For the six months ended September 30, 2009, sales and gross margins were $297.9 million and $51.4 million, an increase of 15% and 31%, respectively, over the same period last year.

Average gross margin per customer after all balancing and including acquisitions for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 in Canada amounted to $164/RCE compared to $136/RCE from the prior comparable quarter. The GM/RCE value includes an appropriate allowance for the bad debt expense in Alberta.

United States

Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 were $149.6 million, an increase of 90% from $78.9 million in the prior year comparable quarter. Seasonally adjusted gross margin was $39.1 million, up 304% from $9.7 million from the same quarter last year.

Gas

Gas sales in the U.S. increased by 163% from $23.3 million to $61.5 million for the second quarter ended September 30, 2009. This increase reflects the addition of 120,000 customers acquired as part of the Universal transaction, net customer growth through marketing and higher selling prices. Gas margin increased 248% for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 to $11.1 million from $3.2 million. The increase in gross margin for the quarter resulted from increased customers, as well as substantially higher per customer margins. Just Energy also benefitted from changes in utility storage capacity in the Midwest markets which allowed improved supply management by reducing the need for daily settlements with current depressed commodity prices.

Sales and gross margins for the six months ended September 30, 2009 totaled $111.9 million and $21.8 million, respectively.

Average gross margin after all balancing costs for the three months ended September 30, 2009 was $267/RCE, an increase of 48% over the prior year comparable period of $180/RCE. The GM/RCE value includes an appropriate allowance for bad debt expense in Illinois.

Electricity

Electricity sales and gross margin for the quarter were $111.9 million and $30.3 million, respectively, versus the comparable period of fiscal 2009 in which, sales and gross margin amounted to $55.5 million and $6.5 million, respectively. Electricity customers increased by 73%, driving the 102% sales growth. Unlike other markets, the Universal acquisition contributed only 2,000 of the 127,000 year over year net additions. Customer additions added through marketing have been the largest contributor to US electricity growth.

The gross margin increase of 367% reflected the 73% growth in customers and very high margins per customer in Texas due to weather related consumption. New York profitability rose due to improved supply management.

For the six months ended September 30, 2009, the sales and gross margins were $187.3 million and $43.3 million, respectively.

Average gross margin per customer for electricity during the current quarter was $282/RCE compared to $126/RCE from the prior year comparable period. The GM/RCE value for Texas includes an appropriate allowance for the bad debt expense.

As part of the Universal acquisition Just Energy acquired 430,000 customers that have similar profiles to our existing book of customers. Another 145,000 customers included in the Universal RCEs previously reported are variable in nature or are located in regions that Just Energy has no current plans to expand in or actively renew customers at this time. Therefore, the 145,000 customers mainly related to Commerce are not expected to renew and have not been included in the long-term customer aggregation reported above.

Gross customer additions signed by our offices for the second quarter were 140,000, up 54% from the 91,000 customers added in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Total net customer additions for the quarter were 36,000 well above the 9,000 net customer additions in the comparable quarter. Overall, there was a 29% increase in total customers at September 30, 2009 versus September 30, 2008.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, total gas customer numbers increased by 22% due to the Universal acquisition of 213,000 customers.

Total electricity customers were up 31% for the second quarter of fiscal 2010. U.S. electricity customers were up 17% with strong customer additions in both New York and Texas. All customer growth excluding the acquisition was in the United States with Canada lagging due to high relative five-year prices in Ontario. In the interim, the Fund has modified its electricity offering to focus on GEO supply. The take-up of the GEO product has been strong despite a significantly higher cost of green electricity to the customer. The Canadian electricity growth of 37% is due to the 215,000 acquired Universal customers.

Delivered volumes in the quarter

Delivered volumes details the change in the actual growth of volumes delivered to customers for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. This measure tracks our actual financial results and reflects weather and other volume variances.

The following table shows the actual delivered volumes for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 and the prior year comparable quarter:

Gas deliveries increased by 36% in the three months ended September 30, 2009 due to a 17% increase in customers as a result of the Universal acquisition. Electricity volumes increased by 60% over the prior year comparable quarter due to strong customer additions in Texas and New York and acquired Universal customers, resulting in 72% growth of the customer base.

Green Energy Option ("GEO")

Sales of the GEO product continue to support and reaffirm the strong demand for the green energy products in all markets. The GEO program allows customers to choose to purchase units of green energy in the form of renewable energy or carbon offsets, in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When a customer purchases a unit of green energy, it creates a contractual obligation for Just Energy to purchase a supply of green energy at least equal to the demand created by the customer's purchase. A review was conducted by Grant Thornton LLP of Just Energy's Renewable Energy and Carbon Offsets Sales and Purchases report for the period from January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2008 validating the Fund's renewables and carbon offset purchases.

Just Energy sells GEO gas in Ontario, British Columbia, New York, Illinois and Indiana currently and GEO electricity in Ontario, Alberta, New York and Texas. Of all customers who contracted with Just Energy in the last twelve months, 41% took GEO for some or all of their energy needs. On average, these customers elected to purchase 78% GEO supply.

Attrition

Natural gas

The trailing 12-month natural gas attrition in Canada was 9% for the quarter, below management's target of 10%. In the U.S., gas attrition for the trailing 12 months was 28%, above management's annual target of 20% but decreased from the 31% noted in the first quarter of fiscal 2010. High U.S. gas attrition is a residual effect of the North American recession. While the rate of foreclosures is slowing, the first two quarters are periods where customers who have not paid their heavy winter gas bills are cut-off by the utility. The level of cut-off was the highest seen in the Fund's history and resulted in continued high attrition.

Electricity

The trailing 12-month electricity attrition rate in Canada for the year was 11%, slightly above management's target of 10%. Electricity attrition in the United States was 17% over the last twelve months, below management's target of 20%.

Failed to renew

The Just Energy renewal process is a multi-faceted program and aims to maximize the number of customers who choose to sign a new contract prior to the end of their existing contract term. Efforts begin up to 15 months in advance allowing a customer to re-contract for an additional four or five years.

The trailing 12-month renewal rate for all Canadian gas customers was 70%. In the Ontario gas market, customers who do not positively elect to renew or terminate their contract receive a one-year fixed price for the ensuing year. A total of 58,200 gas customers were renewed in the last twelve months and, of these, 14,500 were renewed for a one-year term.

Electricity renewals for Canadian customers in Ontario and Alberta were 73%. In the Ontario electricity market, there is no opportunity to renew a residential or small volume customer for a one-year term should the customer fail to positively renew or terminate his or her contract. Management targets a renewal rate for electricity customers of 65%.

In the U.S. markets, Just Energy currently only has Illinois gas and Texas electricity customers up for renewal. Gas renewals for the U.S. were 35% (based on only 6,500 customers up for renewal), below our target of 50%. The Texas electricity renewal rate was 78%, significantly better than our target rate of 60% based on over 43,000 customers.

The table below shows actual renewal rates for the last twelve months versus target:

Gross margin earned through new marketing efforts

Annual gross margin per customer for new and renewed customers (includes GEO impact)

In the second quarter of fiscal 2010, the Fund continued to see the positive impact of continued efforts to maintain strong margin per customer during challenging marketing periods. Overall, average gross margin per RCE increased by 7% quarter over quarter primarily due to the impact of strong GEO sales which are partially offset by lower margin Universal and CEG acquired gas customers.

The table below depicts the annual margins on contracts of customers signed in the quarter. This table reflects only the margins on "brown" energy purchased by customers. To the extent that customers elected green electricity, margins per customer are materially higher. Sales of the GEO products have been very strong with approximately 41% of all customers added in the past year taking some of all green energy supply. Those who purchased the GEO product elect on average to purchase 78% of their consumption.

National Home Services Division

NHS was acquired on July 1, 2009 as part of the Universal acquisition and on July 2, 2009, NHS acquired Newten Home Comfort Inc. and on September 30, 2009, acquired substantially all of the assets of NHCLP (see Page 5 for additional information). NHS provides Ontario residential customers long-term water heater rental programs offering conventional tanks, power vented tanks and tankless water heaters in a variety of sizes. The combined installed water heater base on July 1 was 37,687 and NHS continues to ramp up its operations and, as at September 30, 2009, had installed 55,464 water heaters in residential homes and has commenced earning revenue from its installed base. The RCE equivalent for installed water heaters to date from a gross margin standpoint is 36,976.

Because NHS is a high growth, relatively capital intensive business, Just Energy management is examining opportunities to separately finance water heater installations. Accordingly, capital required for this business will not impact distributable cash generated by the core natural gas and electricity business. NHS will continue to generate losses due to the rapid projected growth and start-up expenses which will be offset by long term cash flows.

Results of Operations

For the three months ended September 30, 2009 NHS had sales of $2.5 million and incurred a net loss of $2.5 million. Commission costs paid to the independent agents have been capitalized along with the costs of the water heaters. Selling and general and administrative costs, which relate primarily to staff compensation and warehouse expenses, amounted to $3.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. Capital expenditures, including installation costs, for the quarter amounted to $9.7 million.

Ethanol Division (TGF)

TGF continues to improve plant production and runtime of the Belle Plaine wheat based ethanol facility. For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, the plant had achieved an average production capacity of 62% with capacity rising to 70% in the month of September. Sales of distillers dried grain ("DDGs") have been steady while margins for ethanol decreased in the quarter as the general economic conditions resulted in softer pricing for energy products including ethanol. TGF's wheat supply portfolio continues to provide steady feedstock supplies to meet plant requirements.

The ethanol division has separate non-recourse financing in place such that capital requirements and possible operating losses will not impact distributable cash from Just Energy's core business.

Results of Operations

For the three months ended September 30, 2009 TGF had sales of $16.4 million and realized gross margin of $1.9 million. During the quarter the plant produced 23.4 million litres of ethanol and 17,683 metric tones of DDGs. For the three months ended September 30, 2009 TGF realized a net loss of $3.0 million, incurring amortization charges of $0.6 million, $1.9 million in debt obligations and $3.8 million in general and administrative expenses. Capital expenditures, including installation costs, for the quarter amounted to $0.1 million. Production levels continue to be below the 150 million litre annual plant design capacity as a result of production challenges in grain milling. New grain milling equipment is being installed by year end to address this production bottleneck and enable production to achieve the design capacity. TGF is expected to realize net income once the milling equipment installation is complete.

Overall Consolidated Results

General and administrative expenses

General and administrative costs were $25.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009, representing a 93% increase from $13.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Increased general and administrative costs were primarily due to the Universal acquisition, staffing costs in our corporate office to support our current and future growth, and an increase in telecom and collection costs. As administrative overlap efficiencies continue to be realized in future quarters, growth in general and administrative costs should track margin growth. While operating headcount increased significantly due to the Universal acquisition, management expects that after continued future administrative consolidation, total corporate headcount will have increased by 20% to a total of 852 full-time employees. This will not only support the 24% increase in customers brought by Universal but will also allow for the new Alberta customers to be billed internally and continued commercial sales expansion.

Expenditures for general and administrative costs for the six months ended September 30, 2009 were $41.3 million, an increase of 55% from $26.7 million in the prior comparable period as a result of the additional costs noted above.

Marketing expenses

Marketing expenses, which consist of commissions paid to independent sales contractors for signing new customers as well as an allocation of corporate marketing costs, were $27.1 million, an increase of 57% from $17.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Total gross customer additions were up by 54% in the current quarter versus the same period last year.

For the six months ended September 30, 2009, marketing expenses were $46.5 million, an increase of 51% from the $30.8 million reported in the same period last year. This reflects higher than expected customer additions, increased recruiting and corporate marketing overhead.

Marketing expenses to maintain gross margin are allocated based on the ratio of gross margin lost from attrition as compared to the gross margin signed from new and renewed customers during the period. Marketing expenses to maintain gross margin increased by 48% to $16.1 million, as compared to, $10.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. The increase resulted from higher customer attrition and renewal costs versus the comparable quarter.

Marketing expenses to add new gross margin are allocated based on the ratio of net new gross margin earned on the customers signed, less attrition, as compared to the gross margin signed from new and renewed customers during the period. Marketing expenses to add new gross margin in the second quarter totaled $11.0 million, an increase of 72% from $6.4 million in the prior year comparable quarter. The large increase is consistent with the increase in the net customer additions of 36,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2010 versus 9,000 net customers added through our sales offices during fiscal 2009. All marketing costs related to the GEO product offerings are allocated against new margin and there has been a substantial increase in the sale of GEO products in the current quarter.

The actual aggregation costs per customer added were as follows:



Six months ended Six months ended
September 30, 2009 September 30, 2008
Natural gas
Canada $197/RCE
United States $180/RCE
Total gas $183/RCE $215/RCE

Electricity
Canada $161/RCE
United States $169/RCE
Total electricity $167/RCE $177/RCE


Actual total aggregation costs for gas and electricity customers to date for fiscal 2010 were $183 per customer for gas and $167 per customer for electricity. For the six months ended September 30, 2008, the gas and electricity aggregation costs were $215 and $177 per customer, respectively.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2010, customer additions were above targeted levels and therefore, lower corporate, marketing and customer service costs were allocated to each new customer. Approximately 40% of the total marketing expense relates to the costs associated with corporate, marketing and customer service overhead. The reduction in the aggregation cost per customer reflects the leveraging of the fixed marketing costs as customer additions increase.

Unit based compensation

Compensation in the form of units (non-cash) granted by the Fund to the directors, officers, full-time employees and service providers of its subsidiaries and affiliates pursuant to the 2001 unit option plan, the 2004 unit appreciation rights plan and the directors' deferred compensation plan for the second quarter amounted to $1.0 million, effectively unchanged from the $0.9 million paid in the prior comparable quarter. Total costs for the six months ended September 30, 2009 totaled $1.6 million, versus $1.8 million for the same period last year.

Bad debt expense

In Illinois, Alberta, Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland and California, Just Energy assumes the credit risk associated with the collection of all customer accounts. In addition, for large direct billed accounts in B.C. and Ontario, the Fund is responsible for the bad debt risk. Credit review processes have been established to manage the customer default rate. Management factors default from credit risk into its margin expectations for all of the above noted markets.

Bad debt expense for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $3.9 million up from $2.5 million expensed in the same quarter of last year, an increase of 57%. The bad debt expense increase was mainly due to the 48% increase in total revenues for the quarter in the markets where Just Energy assumes the risk for accounts receivable collections and higher percentage losses in the Texas market. Management integrates its default rate for bad debts within its margin targets and continuously reviews and monitors the credit approval process to mitigate customer delinquency.

For the six months ended September 30, 2009, the bad debt expense was $7.7 million, representing approximately 3.5% of $217.0 million in revenues. In fiscal 2009, the total bad debt expense was $3.5 million or 2% of $172.9 million in revenue for the six-month period. Management continues to target bad debt expense of approximately 2% to 3% during fiscal 2010 in all other markets with the exception of Texas. Just Energy has recorded a substantial increase in margins in the Texas electricity market due to warm weather and large growth of our residential book. As a result of the growth and propensity of customers to default on larger billing months, the Fund has increased our bad debt expense forecast for Texas to 4% to 5% for the year. This default rate has been built into our margins and it has been determined an acceptable range to maximize profitability for the market.

For each of Just Energy' other markets, the LDCs provide collection services and assume the risk of any bad debt owing from Just Energy' customers for a fee.

Interest expense

Total interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2009 amounted to $4.9 million up from $1.0 million in the prior year comparable period. The large increase noted in the second quarter relates to the $1.3 million in interest paid on the acquired convertible debenture now held in JEEC and interest payments of $1.8 million made on debt held by Terra Grain Fuels. For the six-month period of fiscal 2010, the total interest cost was $5.4 million versus $1.9 million paid in fiscal 2009. See page 24 for additional information on the current and long term debt financing.

Foreign exchange

Just Energy has an exposure to U.S. dollar exchange rates as a result of its U.S. operations and any changes in the applicable exchange rate may result in a decrease or increase in Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) for fiscal 2010. For the quarter, a foreign exchange unrealized gain of $6.8 million was reported in Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) versus $8.4 million reported in the prior year comparable period. For the six months ended September 30, 2009, the foreign exchange unrealized gain was $25.0 million versus a gain of $8.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. In fiscal 2010 to date, a total of $23.0 million in U.S. funds was repatriated to back to Canada. It is expected that all future monies earned in the U.S. will be redeployed in the U.S. to fund continued growth, therefore the Fund is not hedging our U.S. currency at this time.

Overall, the high U.S. dollar increases sales and gross margin but this is partially offset by higher operating costs denominated in U.S. dollars. While there can be quarterly fluctuations because of relative inflows and outflows, the overall annual impact on adjusted net income is currently not material, given the high growth of the U.S. markets.

Class A preference share distributions

The remaining holder of the Ontario Just Energy Corp. ("OESC") Class A preference shares (which are exchangeable into units on a 1:1 basis) is entitled to receive, on a quarterly basis, a payment equal to the amount paid or payable to a Unitholder on an equal number of units. The total amount paid for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009 including tax amounted to $1.6 million and $3.3 million, respectively. In fiscal 2009, the distribution paid for the three and six month periods were $1.6 million and $3.5 million, respectively. These distributions on the Class A preference shares are reflected in the Statement of Unitholders' Equity of the Fund's consolidated financial statements, net of tax.

The Fund recorded a current income tax expense for the quarter of $6.1 million versus $0.6 million in the same period last year. A tax provision of $6.1 million has been recorded for the six month period of fiscal 2010 versus a provision of $0.8 million for the same period last year. The change is mainly due to additional income tax expense incurred by the newly acquired Universal entities and state income taxes that our U.S. entities paid. Also included in the income tax provision is an amount relating to the tax impact of the distributions paid to the Class A preference shareholders of OESC. In accordance with EIC 151, "Exchangeable Securities Issued by Subsidiaries of Income Trusts", all Class A preference shares are included as part of Unitholders' equity and the distributions paid to the shareholders are included as distributions on the Statement of Unitholders' equity, net of tax. For the three and six months ended September 30, 2009, the tax impact of these distributions, based on a tax rate of 32.75%, amounted to $0.5 million and $1.1 million, respectively. In addition, future tax expense of $19.1 million and $28.9 million was recorded for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009 respectively. These future tax expenses resulted from the change in fair value of derivative instruments with a corresponding tax recovery being recorded in other comprehensive income.

Effective January 1, 2011, the Fund will be taxed as a specified investment flow-through ("SIFT") trust on Canadian income that has not been subject to a Canadian corporate income tax in the Canadian operating entities. Therefore, the future tax asset or liability associated with Canadian assets recorded on the balance sheet as at that date will be realized over time as the temporary differences between the carrying value of assets in the consolidated financial statements and their respective tax bases are realized. Current Canadian income taxes will be accrued at that time to the extent that there is taxable income in the Fund or its underlying operating entities.

The U.S. based corporate subsidiaries are subject to U.S. income taxes on their taxable income determined under U.S. income tax rules and regulations. The U.S. subsidiaries (other than the newly acquired Commerce Energy Inc) had combined operating losses for tax purposes at September 30, 2009, no provision for current U.S. federal income tax has been made by those U.S. entities. On the other hand, Commerce Energy Inc. had no operating losses carried forward and generated taxable income during the quarter and as a result, an income tax expense of $2.6 million was recorded during the quarter, which has been included in the current income tax expense amounts as noted above.

The Fund follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, income tax liabilities and assets are recognized for the estimated tax consequences attributable to the temporary differences between the carrying value of the assets and liabilities on the consolidated financial statements and their respective tax bases, using substantively enacted income tax rates. A valuation allowance is recorded against a future income tax asset if it is not anticipated that the asset will be realized in the foreseeable future. The effect of a change in the income tax rates used in calculating future income tax liabilities and assets is recognized in income during the period that the change occurs.

Operating activities

Cash flow from operating activities for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009 was $24.7 million and $62.5 million, as compared to $17.7 million and $63.0 million, respectively, for the same periods last year. The increase for the current quarter resulted from increased net income that was partially offset by higher amortization on the acquired customer contracts from Universal.

Investing activities

The Fund purchased capital and recorded intangible assets totaling $14.9 million during the quarter, an increase from $1.1 million in the prior year comparable quarter. Capital asset purchases and intangibles amounted to $22.3 million for the six months ended September 30, 2009, compared with $1.3 million in the same period last year. During the quarter a total of $11.1 million was spent on water heater purchases for NEC. For the period ended September 30, 2009, the Fund completed the acquisition of Universal Energy Group Ltd. in consideration for JEEC exchangeable shares valued at $239.9 million. For further information on the acquisition see page 4. On July 2, 2009, NEC, a wholly owned home services subsidiary of UEG, acquired Newten Home Comfort Inc., an arm's length third party that held a 20% interest of NHCLP. Accordingly, NHCLP became a wholly owned subsidiary of Just Energy. NEC, which began operations in April 2008, operates under the trade name of National Home Services ("NHS"). In the second quarter of fiscal 2009, Just Energy purchased substantially all of the commercial and residential customer contracts of CEG in British Columbia for $1.8 million. CEG was a Western Canadian marketer of natural gas wholly owned by SemCanada Energy Company ("SemCanada"), both of which filed for creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act on July 30, 2008. As well, in fiscal 2009 the Fund entered into a limited partnership to form NHCLP for an investment of $0.5 million.

Financing activities

Financing activities excluding distributions relate primarily to the drawdown of the operating line for working capital requirements. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, Just Energy had drawn a total of $7.1 million against the credit facility versus $16.3 million drawn in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. See page 24 for additional discussion on Long term debt and financing.

The Fund's liquidity requirements are driven by the delay from the time that a customer contract is signed until cash flow is generated. Approximately 50% of an independent sales contractor's commission payment is made following reaffirmation or verbal verification of the customer contract with most of the remaining 50% being paid after the energy commodity begins flowing to the customer.

The elapsed period between the times when a customer is signed to when the first payment is received from the customer varies with each market. The time delays per market are approximately two to six months. These periods reflect the time required by the various LDCs to enroll, flow the commodity, bill the customer and remit the first payment to Just Energy. In Alberta and Texas, Just Energy receives payment directly from the customer.

Distributions (cash payments)

Investors should note that due to the institution of a distribution reinvestment program ("DRIP") on December 20, 2007, a portion of dividends declared are not paid in cash. Under the program, Unitholders can elect to receive their distributions in units at a 2% discount to the prevailing market price rather than the cash equivalent.

During the quarter, the Fund made cash distributions to its Unitholders in the amount of $34.9 million, compared to $27.0 million in the prior year comparable period, an increase of 30%. The increase in distributions is a result of the JEEC exchangeable shares that were converted into units during the quarter. For the six months ended September 30, 2009, cash distributions totaled $66.9 million compared to $53.5 million in the same period during fiscal 2009.

Just Energy will continue to utilize its cash resources for expansion into new markets, growth in its existing customer base, as well as distributions to its Unitholders.

At the end of the quarter, the annual rate for distributions per unit was $1.24. The Fund intends to make distributions to its Unitholders, based upon cash receipts of the Fund, excluding proceeds from the issuance of additional Fund units, adjusted for costs and expenses of the Fund. The Fund's intention is for Unitholders of record on the 15th day of each month to receive distributions at the end of the month.

Balance Sheet as at September 30, 2009 compared to March 31, 2009

Cash decreased from $59.1 million as at March 31, 2009 to $29.7 million at September 30, 2009. Long term debt has increased to $203.9 million from $76.5 million as a result of the Universal acquisition and is detailed on page 24. The Just original credit facility increased to $78.7 million as a result of normal injection of gas into storage, water heater funding and various other working capital requirements. Working capital requirements in the U.S. and Alberta result from the timing difference between customer consumption and cash receipts. For electricity, working capital is required to fund the lag between settlements with the suppliers and settlement with the LDCs. Restricted cash has increased to $22.5 million from $7.6 million as at March 31, 2009 due to additional cash collateral postings related to supply procurement related to the Universal, Commerce and TGF entities.

The increase in accounts receivable from $249.5 million to $268.7 million is primarily attributable to the increase in sales during the period as a result of the Universal acquisition. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities has also increased from $165.4 million to $192.1 million relating to added consumption as a result of the 430,000 acquired Universal customers.

Gas in storage has increased from $6.7 million to $44.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2010. The increased balance reflects injections into storage for the expanding Illinois, New York and Indiana customer base, which occur from April to November.

At the end of the quarter, Just Energy had delivered more gas to the LDCs in Ontario and Quebec than customers had consumed. Since Just Energy is paid for this gas when delivered yet recognizes revenue when the gas is consumed by the customer, the balance sheet includes deferred revenue of $104.0 million and gas delivered in excess of consumption of $85.6 million. At March 31, 2009, customers had consumed more than had been delivered to the LDCs, thereby resulting in unbilled revenues amounting to $0.8 million and accrued gas accounts payable of $0.8 million.

Prepaid expenses have increased from $2.0 million to $25.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2010. The increased balance relates to tax, rent and various prepayments from the Commerce, Universal, TGF and NEC entities.

Original Credit Facility

On July 1, 2009, in connection with the acquisition of UEG, Just Energy increased its credit facility from $170 million to $250 million. As part of the increase in the credit facility, Societe Generale and Alberta Treasury Branches jointed Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Royal Bank of Canada, National Bank of Canada and Bank of Nova Scotia as the syndicate of the lenders thereunder. Under the new terms of the credit facility, effective July 1, 2009, Just Energy is able to make use of Bankers' Acceptances and LIBOR advances at stamping fees of 4.0%, prime rate advances at Canadian and U.S. prime plus 3.0% and letters of credit at 4.0%. As at September 30, 2009, the Canadian prime rate was 2.25% and the U.S. prime rate was 3.25%. As at September 30, 2009, Just Energy had drawn $78.7 million against the facility, versus $79.9 million drawn for the six months of fiscal 2009. Just Energy's obligations under the credit facility are supported by guarantees of certain subsidiaries and affiliates and secured by a pledge of the assets of Just Energy and the majority of its operating subsidiaries and affiliates. Just Energy is required to meet a number of financial covenants under the credit facility agreement. As at September 30, 2009 and 2008, all of these covenants have been met.

TGF Credit facility

A credit facility of up to $50 million was established with a syndicate of Canadian lenders was arranged to finance the construction of the ethanol plant in 2007. The facility was further revised on March 18, 2009, and was converted to a fixed repayment term of 10 years commencing March 1, 2009 which includes interest costs at a rate of prime plus 2%, with principal repayments commencing on March 1, 2010. To date, $5.0 million of the principal has been repaid. The credit facility is secured by a demand debenture agreement, a first priority security interest on all assets and undertakings of TGF and a general security interest on all other current and acquired assets of TGF. The credit facility includes certain financial covenants the more significant of which relate to working capital, debt to equity ratio, debt service coverage and minimum shareholder's equity. As at September 30, 2009 the amount owing under this facility amounted to $43.7 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2009 interest costs under this facility amounted to $0.6 million. TGF is not in compliance with its minimum working capital ratio of 0.85:1 with respect to its $50 million senior debt obligation. This non-compliance may result in a fee of up to 0.25% of the loan amount, at the Senior Lender's discretion.

TGF Debentures

A debenture purchase agreement with a number of private parties providing for the issuance of up to $40 million aggregate principal amount of debentures was entered into in 2006. The interest rate is 10.5% per annum, compounded annually and payable quarterly. Interest is to be paid quarterly with quarterly principal payments commencing October 1, 2009 in the amount of $1.0 million per quarter. As at September 30, 2009 the amount owing under this facility amounted to $39.0 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, interest costs under this facility amounted to $1.1 million. The credit facility includes certain financial covenants the more significant of which relate to working capital, debt service coverage and minimum shareholder's equity. On January 1, 2009, TGF entered into an Agreement with its lenders to defer the compliance with the financial covenants and the scheduled principal payments owing under the Debenture until October 1, 2009.

TGF Wheat production financing

There is a credit facility under which wheat growers receive a cash advance under the production contracts from a third party lender. As at September 30, 2009 $0.4 million was outstanding under this facility. TGF is also required to pay the interest cost of the advances at a rate of prime plus 3%. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, interest expense under this facility amounted to $10 thousand dollars.

TGF Operating facilities

TGF also maintains a working capital facility for $10 million with a third party lender bearing interest at prime plus 1% due in full on December 31, 2010. This facility is secured by liquid investments on deposit with the lender. As at September 30, 2009 the amount owing under the facility amounted to $10.0 million. A further operating facility of $7 million bearing interest at prime plus 1% was arranged which is secured by inventory and accounts receivable of which $4.1 million is available. As at September 30, 2009, the amount owing under this facility amounted to $4.1 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, interest expense under this facility amounted to $87 thousand dollars.

JEEC Convertible debentures

In conjunction with the acquisition of UEG on July 1, 2009, JEEC also acquired the obligations of the convertible unsecured subordinated debentures issued by Universal in October 2007 which have a face value of $90 million. The debentures mature on September 30, 2014 unless converted prior to that date and bear interest at an annual rate of 6% payable semi-annually on March 31 and September 30 of each year. Each $1,000 principal amount of the debentures is convertible at any time prior to maturity or on the date fixed for redemption, at the option of the holder, into approximately 27.3 units of the Fund representing a conversion price of $36.63 per exchangeable share. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, interest expense amounted to $1.7 million.

The debentures are not redeemable prior to October 1, 2010. On and after October 1, 2010, but prior to September 30, 2012, the debentures are redeemable, in whole or in part, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, at the Fund's sole option on not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior notice, provided that the current market price on the date on which notice of redemption is given is not less than 125% of the conversion price. On and after September 30, 2012, but prior to the maturity date, the debentures are redeemable, in whole or in part, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, at the Fund's sole option on not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior notice.

Contractual Obligations

In the normal course of business, the Fund is obligated to make future payments for contracts and other commitments that are known and non-cancelable.

Other obligations

The Fund is also subject to certain contingent obligations that become payable only if certain events or rulings were to occur. The inherent uncertainty surrounding the timing and financial impact of these events or rulings prevents any meaningful measurement, which is necessary to assess any material impact on future liquidity. Such obligations include potential judgments, settlements, fines and other penalties resulting from actions, claims or proceedings. In the opinion of management, the Fund has no material pending actions, claims or proceedings that have not been either included in its accrued liabilities or in the financial statements.

Transactions with Related Parties

The Fund does not have any material transactions with any individuals or companies that are not considered independent to the Fund or any of its subsidiaries and/or affiliates.

Critical Accounting Estimates

The consolidated financial statements of the Fund have been prepared in accordance with Canadian GAAP. Certain accounting policies require management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, cost of sales, marketing and general and administrative expenses. Estimates are based on historical experience, current information and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The emergence of new information and changed circumstances may result in actual results or changes to estimated amounts that differ materially from current estimates.

The following assessment of critical accounting estimates is not meant to be exhaustive. The Fund might realize different results from the application of new accounting standards promulgated, from time to time, by various rule-making bodies.

Unbilled revenues/Accrued gas accounts payable

Unbilled revenues result when customers consume more gas than has been delivered by Just Energy to the LDCs. These estimates are stated at net realizable value. Accrued gas accounts payable represents Just Energy' obligation to the LDC with respect to gas consumed by customers in excess of that delivered. This obligation is also valued at net realizable value. This estimate is required for the gas business unit only, since electricity is consumed at the same time as delivery. Management uses the current average customer contract price and the current average supply cost as a basis for the valuation.

Gas delivered in excess of consumption/Deferred revenues

Gas delivered to LDCs in excess of consumption by customers is valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Collections from LDCs in advance of their consumption results in deferred revenues which are valued at net realizable value. This estimate is required for the gas business unit only since electricity is consumed at the same time as delivery. Management uses the current average customer contract price and the current average supply cost as a basis for the valuation.

Allowance for doubtful accounts

Just Energy assumes the credit risk associated with the collection of customers' accounts in Alberta, Illinois and Texas. In addition, for large direct billed accounts in B.C. and Ontario the Fund is responsible for the bad debt risk. Management estimates the allowance for doubtful accounts in these markets based on the financial conditions of each jurisdiction, the aging of the receivables, customer and industry concentrations, the current business environment and historical experience.

Goodwill

In assessing the value of goodwill for potential impairment, assumptions are made regarding Just Energy' future cash flow. If the estimates change in the future, the Fund may be required to record impairment charges related to goodwill. An impairment review of goodwill was performed during fiscal 2009 and as a result of the review, it was determined that no impairment of goodwill existed at March 31, 2009. There were no events during the quarter which triggered the requirement of an impairment test to be performed as at September 30, 2009.

Fair Value of Derivative Financial Instruments and Risk Management

The Fund has entered into a variety of derivative financial instruments effectively all related to future supply contracts as part of the business of purchasing and selling gas, electricity and the green energy option. Just Energy enters into contracts with customers to provide electricity and gas at fixed prices and provide comfort to certain customers that a specified amount of energy will be derived from green generation. These customer contracts expose Just Energy to changes in market prices to supply these commodities. To reduce the exposure to the commodity market price changes, Just Energy uses derivative financial and physical contracts to secure fixed price commodity supply matching its delivery or green commitment obligations.

The Fund's business model objective is to minimize commodity risk other than consumption changes, usually attributable to weather. Accordingly, it is Just Energy' policy to hedge the estimated requirements of its customers with offsetting hedges of natural gas and electricity at fixed prices for terms equal to those of the customer contracts. The cash flow from these supply contracts is expected to be effective in offsetting the Fund's price exposure and serves to fix acquisition costs of gas and electricity to be delivered under the fixed price or price protected customer contracts. Just Energy' policy is not to use derivative instruments for speculative purposes.

The financial statements are in compliance with Section 3855 of the CICA Handbook, which require a determination of fair value for all derivative financial instruments. Up to June 30, 2008, the financial statements also applied Section 3865 of the CICA Handbook which permitted a further calculation for qualified and designated accounting hedges to determine the effective and ineffective portion of the hedge. This calculation permitted the change in fair value to be predominantly accounted for in the Statement of Other Comprehensive Income. As of July 1, 2008, management decided that the increasing complexity and costs of maintaining this treatment outweigh the benefits. This fair value, (and when it was applicable, the ineffectiveness) is determined using market information at the end of each quarter. Management believes the Fund remains economically hedged operationally across all jurisdictions.

Preference shares of OESC and Trust units

As at November 5, 2009, there were 5,263,728 Class A preference shares of JEC outstanding and 122,271,694 units of the Fund outstanding.

JEEC Exchangeable Shares

A total of 21,271,804 exchangeable shares of JEEC were issued on July 1 for the purchase of Universal. JEEC shareholders have voting rights equivalent to fund Unitholders and their shares are exchangeable on a 1:1 basis. As at November 5, 2009, 15,453,385 shares had been converted and there were 5,818,419 exchangeable shares outstanding.

Taxability of distributions

Cash and unit distributions received in calendar 2008 were allocated as 100% other income. Additional information can be found on our website at www.justenergy.com. Management estimates the distributions for calendar 2009 to be allocated in a similar manner to that of 2008.

Adoption of new accounting policies

As of April 1, 2009, the Fund adopted a new accounting standard that was issued by the CICA; Handbook Section 3064, Goodwill and Intangible Assets, which establishes revised standards for recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of goodwill and intangible assets. Just Energy adopted this standard retroactively as required by the standards.

Recently issued accounting standards

The following are new standards, not yet in effect, which are required to be adopted by the Fund on the effective date:

Business combinations

In October 2008, the CICA issued Handbook Section 1582, Business Combinations ("CICA 1582"), concurrently with CICA Handbook Section 1601, Consolidated Financial Statements ("CICA 1601"), and CICA Handbook Section 1602, Non-controlling Interest ("CICA 1602"). CICA 1582, which replaces CICA Handbook Section 1581, Business Combinations, establishes standards for the measurement of a business combination and the recognition and measurement of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. CICA 1601, which replaces CICA Handbook Section 1600, carries forward the existing Canadian guidance on aspects of the preparation of consolidated financial statements subsequent to acquisition other than non-controlling interests. CICA 1602 establishes guidance for the treatment of non-controlling interests subsequent to acquisition through a business combination. These new standards are effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. The Fund has not yet determined the impact of these standards on its consolidated financial statements.

International Financial Reporting Standards

In February 2008, the CICA announced that GAAP for publicly accountable enterprises will be replaced by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011.

Just Energy will transition to IFRS effective April 1, 2011, and intends to issue, its first interim financial statement under IFRS for the three-month period ending June 30, 2011, and a complete set of financial statements under IFRS for the year ending March 31, 2012.

Just Energy has identified differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS relevant to the Fund and an initial assessment has been made of the impact of the required changes to accounting systems, business processes, and requirements for personnel training and development. A conversion plan was developed in March 2009 to manage the transition to IFRS.

As part of the conversion plan, the Fund is in the process of analyzing the detailed impacts of these identified differences and developing solutions to bridge these differences. Just Energy is currently on target with its conversion plan.

Legal Proceedings

On March 3, 2008, the Citizen's Utility Board, AARP and Citizen Action/Illinois filed a complaint before the Illinois Commerce Commission ("ICC") alleging that independent sales agents used deceptive practices in the sale of Just Energy contracts to Illinois customers. On October 14, 2009, the complaint proceeded to a hearing by the ICC, which is currently ongoing.

On March 20, 2008, an Indiana resident filed a proposed consumer class action against JEIC in Illinois also based on allegations similar to those made by the Illinois Attorney General. The court dismissed the action and ordered the plaintiff to refile in the proper jurisdiction. The action has been restricted to Indiana plaintiffs on a limited basis.

On April 4, 2008, NYESC was served with a complaint initiated by a commercial customer in New York that proposed a class action against NYESC, the Fund and the LDC (Consolidated Edison) on behalf of residents of New York City. On December 16, 2008, the court dismissed the complaint against the Fund, and the complaint against NYESC was referred to arbitration. The plaintiff's representative filed an appeal but let the appeal lapse. The plaintiff may pursue a class action through arbitration.

The State of California has filed a number of complaints to the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission ("FERC") against many suppliers of electricity, including Commerce, a subsidiary of the Fund, with respect to events stemming from the 2001 energy crises in California. Pursuant to the complaints, the State of California is challenging the FERC's enforcement of its market-based rate system. Although CEI did not own generation, the State of California is claiming that CEI was unjustly enriched by the run-up caused by the alleged market manipulation by other market participants. The proceedings are currently ongoing.

Just Energy will resolve or vigorously contest the claims in these matters. Management believes that the pending legal actions against JEIC, NYESC and Commerce are not expected to have a material impact on the financial condition of the Fund at this time.

Controls and Procedures

Except for the limitations on scope of design as noted below, during the most recent interim period, there have been no changes in the Fund's policies and procedures that comprise its internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Fund's internal control over financial reporting.

Limitation on Scope of Design

Section 3.3(1) of National Instrument 52-109, "Certification of Disclosure in Issuer's Annual and Interim Filings", states that the Fund may limit its design of disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting for a business that it acquired not more than 365 days before the end of the financial period to which the certificate relates. Under this section, the Fund's CEO and CFO have limited the scope of the design, and subsequent evaluation, of disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting to exclude controls, policies and procedures of the subsidiaries TGF and NEC acquired on July 1, 2009 as part of the UEG acquisition.

Summary financial information pertaining to the UEG acquisition that was included in the consolidated financial statements of the Fund as at September 30, 2009 is as follows (in thousands of dollars):

Corporate governance

Just Energy is committed to transparency in our operations and our approach to governance meets all recommended standards. Full disclosure of our compliance with existing corporate governance rules is available on our website at www.esif.ca and is included in the Fund's May 15, 2009 management proxy circular. Just Energy actively monitors the corporate governance and disclosure environment to ensure timely compliance with current and future requirements.

Outlook

The major near-term activity of management is the continued consolidation of the Universal operations into Just Energy. To date, the transition has proceeded smoothly with significant accretion seen to the consolidated financial results on a per unit basis. Management continues to rationalize overlap and has identified certain Universal customers who will either not be renewed or who are unlikely to elect renewal. These 145,000 customers generated margin of approximately $9.5 million in the quarter and it is important to note that this margin will no longer be generated in coming quarters. Further, there are remaining non-recurring merger costs which will fall into the third and fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. Accordingly, as noted in the first quarter, the very high year to date rate of growth per unit for gross margin (34%) and distributable cash (36%) will not be sustained during the third and fourth quarters.

Management's continued best estimation is that Just Energy will see significant growth its key operating measures on a per unit basis during fiscal 2010. Gross margin and distributable cash after gross margin replacement per unit are expected to grow by approximately 5 to 10%. Distributable cash after marketing expenses is expected to grow at a slightly lower rate due to increased marketing expenses associated with the continued strong customer additions and GEO product growth. Investors will be updated in future quarters on growth expectations. Overall, management believes that these operating results are exceptional based on two quarters of extreme recessionary conditions.

The financial positions of the Fund's commodity suppliers remain sound based on analysis by management as are those of the banks participating in the Credit Facility. Management does not believe that weakness in the global credit markets will have any near term impact on either existing business or the Fund's ability to grow in the future.

Sales of the GEO products have been very strong with approximately 41% of all customers added in the trailing 12 months taking some or all green energy supply. Continued sales of GEO at these levels will alter the economics of Just Energy as GEO customers are much more profitable than past five year fixed rate customers. As these new GEO customers become a higher and higher percentage of the overall Just Energy customer base, the results should be higher margins per customer and improved renewal rates.

The economies of Just Energy's markets remain in a continued recession. The very weak North American economic conditions and the turmoil in the credit and financial markets have not affected Just Energy's growth rates or its ability to realize high margin per customer. The major impact of the recession has been higher customer attrition in the United States due to high levels of utility shutoff following the winter billing period. These shutoffs not only maintained attrition at a high level but combined with a mandated moratorium on Texas electricity cut-offs, increased bad debt losses above the target range of 2-3%. Management is confident that bad debt loss will be in the target range for the year with the exception of Texas which is expected to be in the range of 4 to 5%. The Fund does not bear bad debt risk in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, British Columbia (excluding large volume customers), New York, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. These markets contain approximately 78% of Just Energy's customers.

The Fund intends to continue its geographic expansion into new markets in the United States both through organic growth and focused acquisitions. The Fund is actively reviewing a number of further possible acquisitions. Just Energy continues to actively monitor the progress of the deregulated markets in various jurisdictions.

Changes made to the Income Tax Act require certain income trusts, including Just Energy, to pay taxes after 2010, similar to those paid by taxable Canadian corporations. The payment of such taxes will, in the future, reduce the cash flow of the Fund, thereby reducing the amount available for distributions to Unitholders. Just Energy is actively analyzing potential restructuring options in preparation for conversion from a trust to a corporation on or before 2011.

Based on operations to date, it appears clear that the Fund will again have to make a Special Distribution to avoid tax at the Trust level for calendar 2009. The amount of the distribution is currently expected to be in the range of $0.10 to $0.15 per unit. The final amount will be declared on December 31, 2008 and paid through a single distribution in early 2009. The final amount of the distribution may vary based on financial performance in the third quarter.

JUST ENERGY INCOME FUND

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2009

(thousands of dollars except where indicated and per unit amounts)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


1. INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements do not conform in all respects to the requirements of Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for annual financial statements and should therefore be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Fund's annual report for fiscal 2009. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with Canadian GAAP applicable to interim consolidated financial statements and follow the same accounting policies and methods in their applications as the most recent annual financial statements, except as described in note 3.

2. ORGANIZATION

Just Energy Income Fund ("Just Energy" or the "Fund"), formerly known as Energy Savings Income Fund, changed its name effective June 1, 2009.

Just Energy is an open-ended, limited-purpose trust established under the laws of the Province of Ontario to hold securities and to distribute the income of its directly or indirectly owned operating subsidiaries and affiliates: Just Energy Ontario L.P. ("JE Ontario"), Just Energy Manitoba L.P. ("JE Manitoba"), Just Energy Quebec L.P. ("JE Quebec"), Just Energy (B.C.) Limited Partnership ("JE BC"), Alberta Energy Savings L.P. ("AESLP"), Just Energy Alberta L.P. ("JE Alberta"), Just Energy Illinois Corp. ("JEIC"), Just Energy New York Corp. ("JENYC"), Just Energy Indiana Corp. ("JEINC"), Just Energy Texas L.P. ("JETLP"), Just Energy Exchange Corp. ("JEEC"), Universal Energy Corporation ("UEC"), Universal Gas and Electric Corp. ("UGEC"), Commerce Energy Inc. ("CEI"), National Energy Corp. ("NEC"), Terra Grain Fuels ("TGF") and Newten Home Comfort Inc. ("NHC") (collectively the "Just Energy Group").

3. CHANGES IN SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(A) ADOPTION OF NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

On April 1, 2009, the Fund adopted a new accounting standard that was issued by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants ("CICA") Handbook Section 3064, Goodwill and Intangible Assets, which establishes revised standards for recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of goodwill and intangible assets. Just Energy adopted this standard retroactively as required by the standards with no impact on the financial statements.

(B) RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

The following are the new standards, not yet in effect, which are required to be adopted by the Fund on the effective date:

Business combinations

In October 2008, the CICA issued Handbook Section 1582, Business Combinations ("CICA 1582"), concurrently with CICA Handbook Section 1601, Consolidated Financial Statements ("CICA 1601"), and CICA Handbook Section 1602, Non-controlling Interest ("CICA 1602"). CICA 1582, which replaces CICA Handbook Section 1581, Business Combinations, establishes standards for the measurement of a business combination and the recognition and measurement of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. CICA 1601, which replaces CICA Handbook Section 1600, carries forward the existing Canadian guidance on aspects of the preparation of consolidated financial statements subsequent to acquisition other than non-controlling interests. CICA 1602 establishes guidance for the treatment of non-controlling interests subsequent to acquisition through a business combination. These new standards are effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. The Fund has not yet determined the impact of these standards on its consolidated financial statements.

International Financial Reporting Standards

In February 2008, CICA announced that GAAP for publicly accountable enterprises will be replaced by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011.

Just Energy will transition to IFRS effective April 1, 2011, and intends to issue its first interim financial statement under IFRS for the three-month period ending June 30, 2011, and a complete set of financial statements under IFRS for the year ending March 31, 2012.

Just Energy has identified differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS relevant to the Fund and an initial assessment has been made of the impact of the required changes to accounting systems, business processes, and requirements for personnel training and development. A conversion plan was developed in March 2009 to manage the transition to IFRS.

As part of the conversion plan, the Fund is in the process of analyzing the detailed impacts of these identified differences and developing solutions to bridge these differences. Just Energy is currently on target with its conversion plan.

(C) ACCOUNTING POLICIES ADOPTED UPON ACQUISITION OF UNIVERSAL ENERGY GROUP LTD. (NOTE 5)

(i) Inventory

Ethanol, ethanol in process and grain inventory are valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value with cost being determined on a weighted average basis.

(ii) Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization for property, plant and equipment related to the Fund's ethanol plant is provided over estimated useful lives of 15 to 25 years using the straight line method.

(iii) Water heater contracts

Water heater contracts represent the fair value of rental contracts on the acquisition of various water heater contracts. These contracts are amortized over their average estimated remaining life. The Fund regularly evaluates these water heater contracts including the estimates of useful lives.

(iv) Effective interest rate method/Deferred financing charges

Deferred financing charges are included on loan balances and are recognized in interest expense over the life of the resulting loan. The Fund uses the effective interest rate method to recognize deferred financing charges whereby the amount recognized varies over the life of the loan based on principal outstanding.

4. SEASONALITY OF OPERATIONS

Just Energy's operations are seasonal. Gas consumption by customers is typically highest in October through March and lowest in April through September. Electricity consumption is typically highest in January through March and July through September. Electricity consumption is lowest in October through December and April through June.

5. ACQUISITIONS

(a) Acquisition of Universal Energy Group Ltd.

On July 1, 2009, Just Energy completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding common shares of Universal Energy Group Ltd. ("UEG") pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Under the Arrangement, UEG shareholders received 0.58 of an exchangeable share ("Exchangeable Share") of JEEC, a subsidiary of Just Energy, for each UEG common share held. In aggregate, 21,271,804 Exchangeable Shares were issued pursuant to the Arrangement. Each Exchangeable Share is exchangeable for a Trust Unit on a one-for-one basis at any time at the option of the holder and entitles the holder to a monthly dividend equal to 66 2/3% of the monthly distribution paid by Just Energy on a Trust Unit. JEEC also assumed all the covenants and obligations of UEG in respect of the UEG's outstanding 6% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures (the "Debentures"). On conversion of the Debentures, holders will be entitled to receive 0.58 of an Exchangeable Share in lieu of each UEG common share that the holder was previously entitled to receive on conversion.

The acquisition of UEG was accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The Fund allocated the purchase price to the identified assets and liabilities acquired based on their fair values at the time of acquisition as follows:



CAD$
Net assets acquired:
Working capital (including cash of $10,319) $ 75,391
Electricity contracts and customer relationships 230,963
Gas contracts and customer relationships 247,189
Water heater contracts and customer relationships 22,700
Other intangible assets 2,721
Goodwill 59,294
Property, plant and equipment 171,918
Future tax liabilities (51,971)
Other liabilities -- current (164,148)
Other liabilities -- long-term (140,857)
Long-term debt (180,440)
Non-controlling interest (22,697)
--------------

$ 250,063
--------------
--------------

Consideration:

Transaction costs $ 10,117
Exchangeable shares 239,946
--------------
$ 250,063
--------------
--------------


All contracts and intangible assets are amortized over the average remaining life at the time of acquisition. The gas and electricity contracts are amortized over periods ranging from 8 to 57 months. The water heater contracts are amortized over 174 months and the intangible assets are amortized over 6 months. The purchase price allocation is considered preliminary and as a result it may be adjusted during the year.

(b) Newten Home Comfort Inc.

On July 2, 2009, NEC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Fund, acquired Newten Home Comfort Inc., an arm's length third party that held a 20% interest in Newten Home Comfort L.P. for $3.2 million, subject to adjustments based on completed installations. Accordingly, Newten Home Comfort L.P. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Just Energy. NEC carries on the business of renting and selling water heaters. Prior to this, the Fund held an 80% equity interest in Newten Home Comfort L.P.

(c) Acquisition of CEG's natural gas customers

During the prior fiscal year, Just Energy purchased substantially all of the commercial and residential customer contracts of CEG Energy Options Inc. ("CEG") in British Columbia. CEG was a Western Canada marketer of natural gas wholly owned by SemCanada Energy Company, both of which filed for creditor protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act on July 30, 2008. The customer contracts had annualized volumes of approximately 4.9 million GJs.



The purchase price was allocated as follows:

Net assets acquired:
Gas contracts $ 1,842
--------------
--------------

Consideration:
Cash $ 1,842
--------------
--------------


The entire purchase price is being amortized over the average remaining life of the contracts, which at the time of the acquisition was 20 months.

(a) On July 1, 2009, in connection with the acquisition of UEG, Just Energy increased its credit facility from $170 million to $250 million. The credit facility is available to Just Energy to meet working capital requirements. As part of the increase in the credit facility, Societe Generale and Alberta Treasury Branches joined Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Royal Bank of Canada, National Bank of Canada and Bank of Nova Scotia as the syndicate of lenders thereunder.

Interest is payable on outstanding loans at rates that vary with Bankers' Acceptance, LIBOR, Canadian bank prime rate or U.S. prime rate. Under the terms of the operating credit facility, Just Energy is able to make use of Bankers' Acceptances and LIBOR advances at stamping fees of 4.0%, prime rate advances at bank prime plus 3.0%, and letters of credit at 4.0%. As at September 30, 2009, the Canadian prime rate was 2.25% and the U.S. prime rate was 3.25%. As at September 30, 2009, Just Energy had drawn $78,672 (March 31, 2009 - $76,500) against the facility and total letters of credit outstanding amounted to $21,244 (March 31, 2009 - $8,459). Just Energy has $150,084 of the facility remaining for future working capital and security requirements. Just Energy's obligations under the credit facility are supported by guarantees of certain subsidiaries and affiliates and secured by a pledge of the assets of Just Energy and the majority of its operating subsidiaries and affiliates. Just Energy is required to meet a number of financial covenants under the credit facility agreement. As at September 30, 2009 and 2008, all of these covenants have been met.

(b) In connection with the acquisition of UEG on July 1, 2009, the Fund acquired the debt obligations of TGF, which is currently comprised of four separate facilities, outlined below:

(i) TGF Credit facility

A credit facility of up to $50,000 with a syndicate of Canadian lenders was arranged to finance construction of the ethanol plant in 2007. This facility was further revised on March 18, 2009. The facility was converted to a fixed repayment term of 10 years commencing March 1, 2009 and bears interest at a rate of prime plus 2%, with principal repayments commencing on March 1, 2010. To date, $5,000 of principal has been repaid. The credit facility is secured by a demand debenture agreement, a first priority security interest on all assets and undertakings of TGF and a general security interest on all other current and after acquired assets of TGF. The credit facility includes certain financial covenants the more significant of which relate to working capital, debt to equity ratio, debt service coverage and minimum shareholder's equity. TGF is not in compliance with its minimum working capital ratio of 0.85:1 with respect to its $50,000 senior debt obligation. This non-compliance may result in a fee of up to 0.25% of the loan amount, at the Senior Lender's discretion. As at September 30, 2009 the amount owing under this facility amounted to $43,699. The facility also provides for $2,000 of cash to be held for debt servicing shortfalls.

(ii) TGF Debentures

A debenture purchase agreement with a number of private parties providing for the issuance of up to $40,000 aggregate principal amount of debentures was entered into in 2006 to provide funding for the construction of the ethanol plant. The interest rate is 10.5% per annum, compounded annually and payable quarterly. Interest is to be paid quarterly with quarterly principal payments commencing October 1, 2009 in the amount of $1,000 per quarter. Security for the debentures includes a security interest in all of TGF's present and after acquired property, second in priority to the lenders in Note 10(a)(i). The debenture agreeement includes certain financial covenants, the more significant of which relate to working capital, debt service coverage and minimum shareholder's equity. As at September 30, 2009, the amount owing under this debenture agreement amounted to $39,000.

On January 1, 2009, TGF has entered into an Agreement ("Covenant Modification Agreement") with its lenders to defer the compliance with the financial covenants and the scheduled principal payments owing under the Debenture until October 1, 2009.

(iii) TGF Wheat production financing

In 2006, TGF established a credit facility under which wheat growers receive a cash advance under the production contracts from a third party lender (see Note 16(e)). Each wheat grower is limited to advances totaling $300 per signed production contract. TGF will repay the cash advances to the lender upon delivery of wheat to TGF by the grower. Should the grower fail to deliver the wheat as specified in the production contract, TGF is obligated to repay any outstanding cash advances plus interest to the lender. As at September 30, 2009, $421 was outstanding under this facility. TGF is also required to pay the interest cost of the advances at a rate of prime plus 3%.

(iv) TGF Operating facilities

TGF also maintains a working capital facility for $10,000 with a third party lender bearing interest at prime plus 1% due in full on December 31, 2010. This facility is secured by liquid investments on deposit with the lender. As at September 30, 2009, the amount owing under the facility amounted to $10,000. A further operating facility of $7,000 bearing interest at prime plus 1% was arranged which is secured by inventory and accounts receivable of which 4,100 is available. As at September 30, 2009, the amount owing under this facility amounted to $4,050. In addition, unsecured letters of credit amounting to $1,700 were issued by the third party lender on behalf of TGF.

(c) In conjunction with the acquisition of UEG on July 1, 2009, JEEC also acquired the obligations of the convertible unsecured subordinated debentures issued by UEG in October, 2007. These instruments have a face value of $90,000. The debentures mature on September 30, 2014 unless converted prior to that date and bear interest at an annual rate of 6% payable semi-annually on March 31 and September 30 of each year. Each $1,000 principal amount of the debentures is convertible at any time prior to maturity or on the date fixed for redemption, at the option of the holder, into approximately 27.3 Exchangeable Shares of Just Energy Exchange Corp. representing a conversion price of $36.63 per Exchangeable Share. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, interest expense amounted to $1,746.

The debentures are not redeemable prior to October 1, 2010. On and after October 1, 2010, but prior to September 30, 2012, the debentures are redeemable, in whole or in part, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, at the Fund's sole option on not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior notice, provided that the current market price on the date on which notice of redemption is given is not less than 125% of the conversion price. On and after September 30, 2012, but prior to the maturity date, the debentures are redeemable, in whole or in part, at a price equal to the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, at the Fund's sole option on not more than 60 days and not less than 30 days prior notice.

(d) Commodity trade financing

Sempra Energy Trading Corp. ("Sempra") is a related party through which UEC and UGEC purchases their natural gas supply and enters into electricity swap agreements. In addition, Sempra provides commodity trade financing to UEC. The commodity financing includes a facility of $5,000 for amounts deemed due for payment under electricity swap contracts, which bears interest at LIBOR plus 2%. The amount owing under this facility as at September 30, 2009 is $nil.

8. UNITHOLDERS' CAPITAL

(a) Trust units of the Fund

An unlimited number of units may be issued. Each unit is transferable, voting and represents an equal undivided beneficial interest in any distributions from the Fund whether of net income, net realized capital gains or other amounts, and in the net assets of the Fund in the event of termination or winding-up of the Fund.

The Fund intends to make distributions to its Unitholders based on the cash receipts of the Fund, excluding proceeds from the issuance of additional Fund units, adjusted for costs and expense of the Fund, amount which may be paid by the Fund in connection with any cash redemptions or repurchases of units and any other amount that the Board of Directors considers necessary to provide for the payment of any costs which have been or will be incurred in the activities and operations of the Fund. The Fund's intention is for Unitholders of record on the 15(th) day of each month to receive distributions at the end of the month, excluding any special distributions.

Class A preference shares of Just Energy Corp. ("JEC")

The terms of the unlimited Class A preference shares of JEC are non-voting, non-cumulative and exchangeable into trust units in accordance with the JEC shareholders' agreement as restated and amended, with no priority on dissolution. Pursuant to the amended and restated Declaration of Trust which governs the Fund, the holders of Class A preference shares are entitled to vote in all votes of Unitholders as if they were the holders of the number of units that they would receive if they exercised their shareholder exchange rights. Class A preference shareholders have equal entitlement to distributions from the Fund as Unitholders.

Exchangeable shares of JEEC

On July 1, 2009, Just Energy completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding common shares of Universal Energy Group Ltd. ("UEG") pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Under the Arrangement, UEG shareholders received 0.58 of an exchangeable share ("Exchangeable Share") of Just Energy Exchange Corp. ("JEEC"), a subsidiary of Just Energy, for each UEG common share held. In aggregate, 21,271,804 Exchangeable Shares were issued pursuant to the Arrangement. Each Exchangeable Share is exchangeable for a Trust Unit on a one-for-one basis at any time at the option of the holder and entitles the holder to a monthly dividend equal to 66 2/3% of the monthly distribution paid by Just Energy on a Trust Unit.

Distribution reinvestment plan

Under the Fund's distribution reinvestment program ("DRIP"), Unitholders holding a minimum of 100 units can elect to receive their distributions (both regular and special) in units rather than cash at a 2% discount to the simple average closing price of the units for five trading days preceding the applicable distribution payment date, providing the units are issued from treasury and not purchased on the open market.

Units cancelled

During the prior fiscal year, the Fund obtained approval from its Board of Directors to make a normal course issuer bid to purchase up to 9,000,000 units, for the 12-month period commencing November 21, 2008 and ending November 20, 2009. A maximum of 44,754 units can be purchased during any trading day. No units were purchased and cancelled during the six months ended September 30, 2009.

Units issued

During the six months ended September 30, 2009, the Fund issued 15,250,593 units relating to the exchange of exchangeable shares. The exchangeable shares were issued pursuant to Just Energy's acquisition of Universal Energy Group Ltd.

During the prior comparable period, the Fund issued 406,917 units relating to a portion of the special distribution declared on December 31, 2007, payable in units.

(b) Contributed surplus

Amounts credited to contributed surplus include unit based compensation awards, unit appreciation rights ("UARs") and deferred unit grants ("DUGs"). Amounts charged to contributed surplus are awards exercised during the year.

9. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

(a) Fair value

The Fund has a variety of gas and electricity supply contracts that are captured under section 3855, Financial Instruments -- Measurement and Recognition. Fair value is the estimated amount that Just Energy would pay or receive to dispose of these supply contracts in an arm's length transaction between knowledgeable, willing parties who are under no compulsion to act. Management has estimated the value of electricity and gas swap and forward contracts using a discounted cash flow method which employs market forward curves that are either directly sourced from third parties or are developed internally based on third party market data. These curves can be volatile thus leading to volatility in the mark to market with no impact to cash flows. Gas options have been valued using the Black option value model using the applicable market forward curves and the implied volatility from other market traded gas options.

Effective July 1, 2008, the Fund ceased the utilization of hedge accounting. Accordingly, all the mark to market changes on the Fund's derivative instruments are recorded on a single line on the consolidated statements of operations. Due to the commodity volatility and size of the Fund, the quarterly swings in mark to market on these positions will increase the volatility in the Fund's earnings.

The following tables illustrates (gains)/losses related to the Fund's derivative financial instruments classified as held-for-trading, recorded against other assets and other liabilities with their offsetting values recorded in change in fair value derivative instruments, for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009

(1) The electricity fixed-for-floating contracts related to the Province of
Alberta are predominantly load-following, wherein the quantity of
electricity contained in the supply contract "follows" the usage of
customers designated by the supply contract. Notional volumes
associated with these contracts are estimates and subject to change
with customer usage requirements. There are also load shaped
fixed-for-floating contracts in Ontario, New York, and Texas wherein
the quantity of electricity is established but varies throughout the
term of the contracts.

(2) Hedge accounting was applied to most of these forwards up to September
30, 2006. However, the hedge was de-designated and a loss of $195 for
the year ended March 31, 2007 was recorded in other liabilities. As the
required hedge accounting effectiveness was achieved for certain
quarters of fiscal 2007, a $1,933 gain was deferred and recorded in
AOCI and is being recognized in the Statement of Operations over the
remaining term of each hedging relationship.


The following table summarizes the nature of financial assets and liabilities recorded in the financial statements for the six months ended September 30, 2009.

The estimated amortization of deferred gains and losses reported in AOCI that is expected to be amortized to net income within the next 12 months is a gain of $161,442.

(b) Classification of Financial Assets and Liabilities

The following table represents the fair values and carrying amounts of financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value or amortized cost:



As at September 30, 2009 Carrying amount Fair value

Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash $ 52,185 $ 52,185
Accounts receivable $ 268,712 $ 268,712
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities,
customer rebates payable, management incentive
program payable and unit distribution payable $ 212,738 $ 212,738
Long-term debt $ 252,063 $ 256,167

For the six For the six
months ended months ended
September 30, 2009 September 30, 2008
Interest expense on financial

The carrying value of cash, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, management incentive program payable and unit distribution payable approximates their fair value due to their short term liquidity.

The carrying value of the long-term debt approximates its fair value as the interest payable on outstanding amounts at rates that vary with Bankers' Acceptance, LIBOR, Canadian bank prime rate or U.S. prime rate.

(c) Management of risks arising from financial instruments

The risks associated with the Fund's financial instruments are as follows:

(i) Market risk

Market risk is the potential loss that may be incurred as a result of changes in the market or fair value of a particular instrument or commodity. Components of market risk to which the Fund is exposed are discussed below:

Foreign currency risk

Foreign currency risk is created by fluctuations in the fair value or cash flows of financial instruments due to changes in foreign exchange rates and exposure as a result of investment in U.S. operations.

A portion of Just Energy's earnings is generated in U.S. dollars and is subject to currency fluctuations. The performance of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar could positively or negatively affect Just Energy's earnings. Due to its growing operations in the U.S. and recent acquisition of UEG, Just Energy expects to have a greater exposure in the future to U.S. fluctuations than in prior years.

The Fund may, from time to time, experience losses resulting from fluctuations in the values of its foreign currency, which could adversely affect operating results.

With respect to translation exposure, as at September 30, 2009, if the Canadian dollar had been 5% stronger or weaker against the U.S. dollar, assuming that all the other variables had remained constant, net income for the three months ended September 30, 2009 would have been $7,540 lower/higher and other comprehensive income would have been $13,100 lower/higher.

Interest rate risk

Just Energy is also exposed to interest rate fluctuations associated with its floating rate credit facility. Just Energy's current exposure to interest rates does not economically warrant the use of derivative instruments. The Fund's exposure to interest rate risk is relatively immaterial and temporary in nature. As such, the Fund does not believe that this long-term debt exposes it to material financial risks and has determined that there is no need to set out parameters to actively manage this risk.

A 1% increase (decrease) in interest rates would have resulted in a decrease (increase) in income before taxes for the three and six months ended September 30, 2009 of approximately $180 (2008 - $195) and $342 ($352), respectively.

Commodity price risk

Just Energy is exposed to market risks associated with commodity prices and market volatility where estimated customer requirements do not match actual customer requirements. Just Energy's exposure to market risk is affected by a number of factors, including accuracy of the estimation of customer commodity requirements, commodity prices, volatility and liquidity of markets. Just Energy enters into derivative instruments in order to manage exposures to changes in commodity prices. The derivative instruments that are used are designed to fix the price of supply for estimated customer commodity demand in Canadian dollars and thereby fix margins such that Unitholder distributions can be appropriately established. Derivative instruments are generally transacted over-the-counter. These derivative financial instruments create a credit risk for Just Energy since they have been transacted with a limited number of counterparties. Should any counterparty be unable to fulfill its obligations under the contracts, Just Energy may not be able to realize the other asset balance recognized in the financial statements. The inability or failure of Just Energy to manage and monitor the above market risks could have a material adverse effect on the operations and cash flows of Just Energy.

Other assets and Other liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets represent the fair value of the derivative instruments. As a result of commodity volatility and the size of the Fund, annual swings in the mark to market on the Fund's positions could have a significant impact on these balances.

As at September 30, 2009, if the electricity prices had risen (fallen) by 10%, assuming that all the other variables had remained constant, income before taxes for the six months ended September 30, 2009 would have increased (decreased) by $107,436 ($107,336) primarily as a result of the change in the fair value of the Fund's derivative instruments.

As at September 30, 2009, if the natural gas prices had risen (fallen) by 10%, assuming that all the other variables had remained constant, income before taxes for the six months ended September 30, 2009 would have increased (decreased) by $167,134 ($166,627) primarily as a result of the change in the fair value of the Fund's derivative instruments.

Changes in gas and electricity prices will not significantly impact the Fund's gross margin percentage due to its fixed-price contracts with its customers.

(ii) Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument fails to discharge an obligation and causes financial loss to another party. Just Energy is exposed to credit risk in two specific areas: Customer Credit Risk and Counterparty Credit Risk.

Customer Credit Risk

In Alberta, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvannia, California and Maryland, Just Energy has customer credit risk and therefore, credit review processes have been implemented to perform credit evaluations of customers and manage customer default. If a significant number of customers were to default on their payments, it could have a material adverse effect on the operations and cash flow of Just Energy. Management factors default from credit risk in its margin expectations for all the above markets.

As at September 30, 2009, accounts receivables from Alberta, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, California and Maryland with a carrying value of $18,919 (March 31, 2009 - $17,022) were past due but not doubtful. As at September 30, 2009 the aging of the accounts receivables from Alberta, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, California and Maryland was as follows:



Current $ 27,666
1 - 30 days 12,046
31 - 60 days 3,786
61 - 90 days 2,352
Over 90 days 22,105
--------------
$ 67,955
--------------


For the six months ended September 30, 2009, changes in the allowance for
doubtful accounts were as follows:

Balance, beginning of period $ 8,657
Provision for doubtful accounts 7,685
Provision for receivable acquired (73)
Bad debts written off (8,275)
Others (1,260)
--------------
Balance, end of period $ 6,807
--------------


For the remaining markets, the LDCs provide collection services and assume the risk of any bad debts owing from Just Energy's customers for a fee. Management believes that the risk of the LDCs failing to deliver payment to Just Energy is minimal. There is no assurance that the LDCs that provide these services will continue to do so in the future.

Counterparty Credit Risk

Counterparty credit risk represents the loss that Just Energy would incur if a counterparty fails to perform under its contractual obligations. This risk would manifest itself in Just Energy replacing contracted supply at prevailing market rates thus impacting the related customer margin or replacing contracted foreign exchange at prevailing market rates impacting the related Canadian dollar denominated distributions. Counterparty limits are established within the Risk Management Policy. Any exception to these limits requires approval from the Board of Directors of JEC. The Risk Office and Risk Committee monitor current and potential credit exposure to individual counterparties and also monitor overall aggregate counterparty exposure. However, the failure of a counterparty to meet its contractual obligations could have a material adverse effect on the operations and cash flows of Just Energy.

As at September 30, 2009, the maximum credit risk exposure amounted to $4,225,806, representing the notional value of its derivative financial instruments and accounts receivable.

(iii) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the potential inability to meet financial obligations as they fall due. The Fund manages this risk by monitoring detailed weekly cash flow forecasts covering a rolling six-week period, monthly cash forecasts for the next 12 months, and quarterly forecasts for the following two-year period to ensure adequate and efficient use of cash resources and credit facilities.

(iv) Supplier risk

Just Energy purchases the majority of the gas and electricity delivered to its customers through long term contracts entered into with various suppliers. Just Energy has an exposure to supplier risk as the ability to continue to deliver gas and electricity to its customers is reliant upon the ongoing operations of these suppliers and their ability to fulfill their contractual obligations. Just Energy has discounted the fair value of its financial assets by $1,098 to accommodate for its counterparties' risk of default. A significant portion of these gas and electricity purchases is from Shell Energy North America and its affiliates.
