Rome, October 23rd, 2020 - Enel S.p.A. (“Enel” or the “Company”) today launched a consent solicitation addressed to the holders of a number of subordinated, non-convertible hybrid bonds issued by the Company in order to align the terms and conditions of the above-mentioned bonds with those of the perpetual subordinated, non-convertible hybrid bond launched by Enel on September 1st, 2020.
To this end, the Company has called the Meetings of the noteholders of the following bonds, with a total outstanding amount of about 1,797 million euros (the “Bonds”), at first and single call on November 26th, 2020:

The proposed changes to the terms and conditions of the Bonds, submitted for approval by the aforementioned Meetings, are illustrated in the respective notices of call and in the documentation made available to the public in accordance with the modalities indicated below. More specifically, the proposed changes establish that:
· the Bonds, which currently have a specified long-term maturity date, would become due and payable and hence have to be repaid by the Company only in the event of winding up or liquidation of the Company;
