Content of report:

The Management Board of Enea S.A. ("Company", "Issuer") informs that in the communication issued on 30 November 2016 Fitch Ratings agency ("Agency") affirmed the "BBB" long-term ratings for the Company in foreign and local currency and the long-term national rating at "A+(pol)". The outlook of the ratings is stable. The Issuer reminds that the Agency has been affirming the ratings for the Company on the above mentioned level since 2011.

The affirmation reflects the high share of the regulated electricity distribution business in Company's EBITDA, the segment with good cash flow visibility. According to the Agency's expectations funds from operations (FFO) adjusted net leverage will rise to about 3x in 2017-2019 on the back of the large capex plan from 1.9x in 2015. FFO adjusted net leverage of 3x is viewed as a maximum level for the current ratings.

Additional information, including ratings definitions applied by the Agency and principles of their application, criteria and methods used, limitations and exclusions of responsibility and documents concerning policies and procedures used are available on the Agency's website www.fitchratings.com.
