NOTICE OF ADJUSTMENT TO THE CONVERSION PRICE

This Notice is being issued by and on behalf of National Grid North America Inc. (the "Issuer") as issuer of the Bonds. We refer to the terms and conditions of the Bonds (the "Conditions") contained in the Trust Deed dated 1 October 2015 and made between the Issuer and The Law Debenture Trust Corporation p.l.c. All words and expressions defined in the Conditions shall (save as otherwise provided herein or unless the context otherwise requires) have the same meanings herein.

On 18 May 2017, the Issuer announced a full year dividend of 128.645 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Full Year Dividend"). The Full Year Dividend consists of an already paid interim-dividend of 15.17 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Interim-Dividend"), a special dividend of 84.375 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Special Dividend") due to be paid 2 June 2017 and a year-end dividend of 29.10 pence per Ordinary Share (the "Year-End Dividend"). The Ex-Date in respect of such Year-End Dividend fell on 1 June 2017.

The Year-End Dividend exceeded the Dividend Threshold for the Relevant Period, and accordingly results in a downward adjustment to the Conversion Price pursuant to Condition 6 of the Bonds. The adjusted Conversion Price per Ordinary Share with effect from the Relevant Adjustment Date is £11.8411 and the adjusted Dividend Threshold from the Relevant Adjustment Date is
