Announcement regarding the request for summons formulated by Societatea de Administrare a Participatiilor in Energie S.A. (SAPE) against Electrica SA

On 08 June 2017, Electrica SA received a request for summons formulated by SAPE against Electrica SA, former managers and directors, the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Energy.

The claims requested through the request for summons are in approximate value of EUR 800 million. According to SAPE's demands, the claims would represent alleged damages caused by Electrica's historical failure to monitor the fulfillment of the post-privatization obligations undertaken by the investors who acquired shares of the privatized companies for which Electrica acted as seller, as these obligations resulted from the privatization agreements. 

We mention that these claims had been the subject of the notification sent by SAPE to Electrica SA in 2015 and reported on 09 September 2015. 

Electrica SA will make all the necessary diligences for protecting its interests and the interests of its shareholders and will constantly inform the market regarding the evolution of the litigation.
