Dear Sirs,

 

I hereby address you on behalf of Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte S.A. (EDENOR) (“Edenor S.A.” or the “Company”) in compliance of the applicable regulation, in order to inform that on September 16th Moody’s Latin American Risk Rating Agent S.A. launched Moody’s Local, a platform at the regional credit ratings, evaluations and research based exclusively on independent ratings regardless of global methodologies. From that moment on, the new rating methodologies applicable specifically to Argentina will be assigned

under a new scale and with local ratings. As a consequence, the ratings previously and in due time issued by Moody’s Latin America under the brand name Moody’s Investors Service, were withdrawn and replaced by new domestic ratings issued by the Moody`s Local Argentina brand, according to the following detail:

 

Rating Agency Rating Type Local Rating Outlook
Moody’s Local Local Currency Issuer Rating A.ar Negative
Moody’s Local Senior Unsecured Foreign Currency Debt Rating A-.ar Negative
Moody’s Local Equity 1.ar  

 

Yours faithfully.

 

 

Carlos D. Ariosa

Attorney-in-fact
