Rome, May 31st, 2018 – Enel S.p.A.’s subsidiary Enel Brasil Investimentos Sudeste, S.A. (“Enel Sudeste”) has improved the terms of its voluntary tender offer (the “Offer”) for the acquisition of the entire share capital of Eletropaulo Metropolitana Eletricidade de São Paulo S.A. (“Eletropaulo”), launched on April 17th, 2018, by presenting a price per share of 45.22 Brazilian reais.
This price is the highest among those announced in the ongoing competing offer process for Eletropaulo.

The Offer remains conditioned, amongst other things, upon the acquisition of a total number of shares representing more than 50% of the share capital of Eletropaulo.

This amount adds to the commitment to subscribe a subsequent capital increase of Eletropaulo for at least 1.5 billion Brazilian reais, equal to approximately 350 million euros at the current exchange rate.
The acquisition of Eletropaulo would add another 7 million customers to the large customer base of Enel in Brazil that would reach 17 million, thereby making Enel the largest operator in the Country and accelerating its growth trajectory in the world’s largest metropolitan areas.
