August 22, 2014

ENP Newswire - 22 August 2014

Release date- 21082014 - This notice is given by AGL Energy Limited (ABN 74 115061 375) (ASX code: AGK) under section 70SAA(2)(f)of the Corporations Act 2001 as notionally modified by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

AGL announced on 20 August 2014 a fully underwritten pro rata accelerated renounceable rights issue with retail rights trading (Rights Issue). Under the Rights Issue, shareholders with a registered address in Australia, New Zealand and certain other jurisdictions are invited to subscribe for 1fully paid AGL ordinary shares (Shares) for every 5 Shares held as at 7.00pm (AEST time) on Monday, 25 August 2014.

AGL advises that:

the Shares to be issued pursuant to the Rights Issue will be offered for issue without disclosure under Part 60.2 of the Act;

this notice is being given under section 70SAA(2)(f)of the Act as modifiedby ASIC;

as a disclosing entity, AGL is subject to regular reporting and disclosure obligations;

as at the date of this notice, AGL Energy has complied with:

the provisions of Chapter 2M of the Act as they apply to AGL and

section 674 of the Act;

as at the date of this notice, there is no excluded information of the type referred to in sections 70SAA(S)and 70SAA(9)of the Act as notionally modified by ASIC that is required to be set out in this notice and

the potential effect the Rights Issue will have on the control of AGL, and the consequences of that effect, will depend on a number of factors, including investor demand and existing shareholdings. However, given the structure of the Rights Issue as a pro-rata issue and the current level of holdings of substantial holders (based on substantial holding notices that have been given to AGL and lodged with ASX on or prior to the date of this notice), the Rights Issue is not expected to have any material effect or consequence on the control of AGL.
