          interest rate is at 3.98%. Industrial & Commercial Bank of China 
          Limited and Agricultural Bank of China Limited act as the joint lead
          underwriters for the Current Tranche Super Short-term Debentures. The
          proceeds from the Current Tranche Super Short-Term Debentures will be
          used for replacement of part of the bank borrowings of the Company in
          order to adjust debt structure and lower financing costs, and will 
          also be used to replenish the working capital of the Company.
    (2)   The Company completed the issuance of "The Second Tranche of Datang 
          International Power Generation Co., Ltd.'s Super Short-term 
          Debentures in 2012" (the "Second Tranche Super Short-term Debentures
