Rome, September 11th, 2012 Today, the Board of Directors of Enel SpA (Enel), meeting under the chairmanship of Paolo Andrea Colombo, approved the issue of one or more bonds by December 31st, 2013, for a total of up to 5 billion euros. The issues form part of the strategy to extend the average maturity of the Groups consolidated debt and to optimize the profile of its medium and long-term maturities.
The bonds could be placed with institutional or retail investors, depending upon the opportunities presented by the market.
The bonds may be issued directly by Enel or by its Dutch subsidiary Enel Finance International NV (guaranteed by the Parent Company), depending upon the opportunities this second option may present for placement of the bonds on foreign markets.
The Board of Directors also delegated to the CEO the task of allocating the bond issues between the two companies indicated above and setting the amounts, currencies, timing and characteristics of the individual issues, with the option of seeking their listing on one or more regulated markets.
