ENEL BUYS A FURTHER 4.96% STAKE IN THE RUSSIAN COMPANY, OGK-5

Moscow, 22 June 2007 – Enel today has finalized the acquisition of a further stake equal to 4.96% of the total share capital of Genco (generation company) number 5, “OGK-5”.
Through a bid which took place in Moscow on last June 6, Enel was already awarded with a 25.03% stake, at a price of 1,516 million USD equal to 17 dollar cents per share. Thanks to today’s acquisition, Enel now owns 29.99% of the company’s share capital. The acquisition price of the further stake of 4.96% has been on average lower than 16 dollar cents per share for an overall amount of approximately 281 million USD and as part of Enel’s strategy this move is aimed at reaching the control of OGK-5.
