ENEL S.P.A. ANNOUNCES RESULTS AND PRICING OF ITS EXCHANGE OFFERS

Rome, 22 May 2019. ENEL S.p.A. (the "Issuer") hereby announces today the results and pricing of its invitations to holders of its outstanding (i) €1,000,000,000 Capital Securities due 2075 (the "Non-Call 2020 Securities") and (ii) €1,250,000,000 Capital Securities due 2074 (the "Non-Call 2024 Securities", and together with the Non-Call 2020 Securities, the "Existing Securities" and each an "Existing Series") to offer to exchange up to the Maximum Acceptance Amount of such Existing Securities of either Existing Series for euro denominated capital securities (the "Exchange New Securities") to be issued by the Issuer, calculated using the relevant Exchange Ratio for each Existing Series (each such invitation, an "Exchange Offer" and together, the "Exchange Offers"), together with any Accrued Interest and any Cash Rounding Amount, for such Existing Securities.

The Exchange Offers were announced on 15 May 2019 and were made on the terms and subject to the conditions (including the Standalone New Securities Issue Condition) set out in the exchange offer memorandum dated 15 May 2019 (the "Exchange Offer Memorandum") prepared in connection with the Exchange Offers. Capitalised terms used in this announcement and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Exchange Offer Memorandum.

On 15 May 2019, the Issuer announced (a) the Exchange New Securities Issue Yield (which is the same as the Standalone New Securities Issue Yield); (b) the Exchange New Securities Issue Price (which is the same as the Standalone New Securities Issue Price); and (c) the Exchange New Securities Coupon (which is the same as the Standalone New Securities Coupon), each as set out in the table below. In addition, the Issuer also announced on 15 May 2019 that the aggregate nominal amount of the Standalone New Securities to be issued would be equal to €300,000,000. The Standalone New Securities will be issued together with the Exchange New Securities and will form a single series of securities with the Exchange New Securities, totalling an aggregate nominal amount of €900,001,000, on the Settlement Date. The Issuer has accordingly exercised its rights to increase the Exchange New Securities Amount.

Please note that, with reference to the Standalone New Securities First Call Date and the Exchange New Securities First Call Date, the Issuer specifies more precisely that the terms and conditions of the Standalone New Securities and the Exchange New Securities provide that the Issuer may redeem all (but not some only) of the Standalone New Securities and the Exchange New Securities on any date during the period commencing on (and including) 24 February 2025 and ending on (and including) 24 May 2025 (the latter being the First Reset Date) or upon any Interest Payment Date (as defined in the Preliminary Offering Circular) thereafter (each such date, a "Call Date"), in each case at their principal amount together with any accrued interest up to (but excluding) the relevant Call Date and any outstanding Arrears of Interest  (as defined in the Preliminary Offering Circular), while in the Exchange Offer Memorandum it was originally indicated as Standalone New Securities First Call Date and Exchange New Securities First Call Date only the date on which the First Call period ends (i.e. 24 May 2025).

Following the pricing of the Standalone New Securities on 15 May 2019, the exchange by the Issuer of any Existing Securities pursuant to the Exchange Offers remains conditional on (i) the signing by the Issuer and the Joint Lead Managers of a subscription agreement for the purchase of, and subscription for, the Standalone New Securities and (ii) such subscription agreement remaining in full force and effect as at the Settlement Date.

Application will be made for the Exchange New Securities to be admitted to listing on the official list of Euronext Dublin and to trading on its regulated market on the Settlement Date.

Settlement

Subject to satisfaction of the Standalone New Securities Issue Condition, the Settlement Date for the Exchange Offers, including (i) delivery of the Exchange New Securities in exchange for the Existing Securities validly Offered for Exchange and accepted for exchange pursuant to each Exchange Offer and (ii) payment of Cash Rounding Amounts and Accrued Interest (if any) is expected to occur on 24 May 2019, which will be the same date as the settlement date for the Standalone New Securities.
