Rome, October 6th, 2011 Yesterday night Moody's reviewed the long-term credit rating to A3 (from A2) and short-term credit rating to Prime-2 (from Prime-1) for Enel S.p.A. (Enel or the Company). The outlook is now negative.
The revision of Enels rating follows the amendment recently carried out by Moodys on the Italian Republic credit rating.
Moodys states therefore that the Companys rating no longer benefits from a one-notch uplift due to the fact that the likelihood of Enel receiving extraordinary support from the Italian government, which owns about 31% of the Companys share capital, has significantly diminished, in light of weakened sovereign creditworthiness.
