We inform you, by this letter, as a significant event, that accordi ng to the assessment of such effects for the shutdown period of January 27, 2013, through February 6, 2014, the financial effects amounted to US$ 2.45 million of contribution margin loss, using final marginal costs through January 31, 2014 and preliminary marginal costs from January 1 to February 6 2014.

b) Regarding the significant events dated December 17, 2013 and January 31, 2014 which informed the Superintendence of the temporary shutdown and financial effects resulting from said shutdown of “Bocamina Power Plant, Second Unit”, for the reasons stated in those documents, we announced that we would continue to evaluate and to inform the Superintendence of the financial effects of the suspension. By this letter, we inform the Superintendence, as a significant event, that: (i) with respect to the suspension period of December 17, 2013 through January 31, 2014, the financial effects amounted US$ 29.95 million of contribution margin loss. The amount is less than that informed on January 31, because it is based on final marginal costs and not on programmed marginal costs, and (ii) for the period of February 1, 2014 through February 23,2014, the financial effects of said shutdown amounted to US$12.51 million contribution margin loss, using preliminary marginal costs and the programmed marginal costs from February 21 to 23, 2014.
