BEIJING, Jan.27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Huaneng Power International, Inc.
("HPI" or the "Company") (NYSE: HNP; HKEx: 902; SSE: 600011) announced its
estimated annual results of 2012.

According to Rule 11.3.1 of the Rules Governing the Listing of Stocks on
Shanghai Stock Exchange, a listed company is required to announce its
estimated annual results within one month after the end of its financial year
(i.e., before January 31 of each year) if the annual net profit of the listed
company is estimated to increase or decrease by more than 50% over the same
period last year. Based on the preliminary estimate of the Company, the annual
net profit attributable to the Company's shareholders in 2012 based on China
Accounting Standards is expected to increase by more than 340% compared to the
same period last year. The estimated profit increase was primarily due to the
carryover effect of the tariff adjustments in 2011, the decrease of coal price
in 2012 and effective cost controls by the Company. Relevant financial data of
the Company is still under audit process as the power plants of the Company
are widely situated in many provinces and cities across the country and the
Company owns assets within and outside the country. Please refer to the
audited financial information set out in the 2012 Annual Report to be formally
disclosed by the Company for detailed and final financial information.

Detailed financial information will be disclosed by the Company in its 2012
Annual Report. Potential investors and shareholders of the Company should
exercise caution when dealing in the shares of the Company.
