the general public that it has submitted a proposal to the private

increase to be presented at the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting scheduled

Endesa Latin America through its Conosur subsidiary to Enersis in exchange

taking yesterday’s closing exchange rate.
*Enersis’ remaining shareholders may subscribe up to 6,473,976,239 Enersis
shares, which at the same exchange rate amounts to USD 2,348 million.
