S.A.) proceeded to sell its 12% participation in the share capital of Medgaz,
S.A. to Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A. (CEPSA) (acquiring a 47% stake)

Significant Event filings on 28 December 2012 (under file number 180625) and
11 February 2013 (under file number 182135).
The sale price is Euro 83.8 million. This is following the subsequent

Likewise, the purchasers have also released Endesa from its guarantees with
the European Investment Bank resulting from a loan from the latter to Medgaz
for which Endesa had posted collateral totalling Euro 93.7 million.
This sale will generate gross capital gains of Euro 64 million on Endesa’s
consolidated income statement for the first six months of 2013.
