Ref.: Significant event

 

 

Dear Sir,

In accordance with articles 9 and 10, under Securities Market Law No. 18,045, and as established under General Norm No. 30 of the Financial Market Commission, I, duly authorized and in representation of ENEL AMÉRICAS S.A. (“Enel Américas or the Company”) hereby inform you of the attached Significant Event, and in relation to the Significant Event issued to the market on November 26, 2019, in which we informed that the Board of Directors had approved the 2020-22 Strategic Plan, as follows:

We included, within the aforementioned Strategic Plan, some macro-elements for the 2020 – 2022 triennium as well as EBITDA and CAPEX projections. We indicated that the contents of the Strategic Plan followed and were based on hypothetical projections that may or may not undergo certain variations in the future.

Taking into consideration factors affecting current conditions, such as exchange rate fluctuations that affect the Company and its subsidiaries’ operations, as well as the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we anticipate and forecast significant variations in the macro-elements included in the Strategic Plan for the 2020 financial year.

Therefore, we have revised our projections based on the Company´s current conditions and results in the first half of 2020, we expect a negative variation in EBITDA in relation to the approximate range initially forecasted between US$0.8 billion and US$1.0 billion, principally stemming from exchange rate fluctuations. In relation to CAPEX, we do not foresee any significant variations from what was reported in November 2019.

Given that the above figures follow and are based on hypothetical projections that may or may not be verified in the future, their effects are not determinable at this stage.

Yours truly

 

Aurelio Bustilho de Oliveira

Administration, Finance and Control Manager
