This communication, and all statements made regarding the subject matter of this communication, contain statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These statements are based on the current expectations and beliefs of EnergySolutions and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Any statements that are not statements of historical fact (such as statements containing the words “believes,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “estimates” and similar expressions) should be considered forward-looking statements. Among others, the following risks, uncertainties and other factors could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: (i) the risk that the Merger may not be consummated in a timely manner, if at all; (ii) the risk that the Merger Agreement may be terminated in circumstances that require EnergySolutions to pay Energy Capital Partners Management II, LP or its designee a termination fee of up to $13,600,000, including the inability to complete the Merger due to the failure to obtain stockholder approval for the Merger or the failure to satisfy other conditions to completion of the Merger; (iii) risks related to the diversion of management’s attention from EnergySolutions’ ongoing business operations; (iv) risks regarding the failure of Energy Capital Partners to obtain the necessary financing to complete the Merger; (v) the effect of the announcement of the acquisition on EnergySolutions’ business relationships (including, without limitation, partners and customers), operating results and business generally as well as the potential difficulties in employee retention as a result of the Merger; (vi) risks related to obtaining the requisite consents to the acquisition, including, without limitation, the timing (including possible delays) and receipt of regulatory approvals from various governmental entities (including any conditions, limitations or restrictions placed on these approvals) and the risk that one or more governmental entities may deny approval; (vii) risks related to the outcome of any legal proceedings that have been, or will be, instituted against EnergySolutions related to the Merger Agreement; and (viii) risks related to the effects of local and national economic, credit and capital market conditions on the economy in general. Additional risk factors that may affect future results are contained in EnergySolutions’ filings with the SEC, which are available at the SEC’s website http://www.sec.gov. Because forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, actual results and events may differ materially from results and events currently expected by EnergySolutions. EnergySolutions and Energy Capital Partners expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change of expectations with regard thereto or to reflect any change in events, conditions or circumstances.

EnergySolutions does not, as a matter of course, publicly disclose projections of future revenue, earnings or other financial performance of the type disclosed below. These historical financial data, financial projections and financial forecasts were not prepared with a view toward public disclosure or compliance with published guidelines of the SEC or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants for preparation and presentation of prospective financial information, the IFRS or U.S. GAAP and do not, and were not intended to, act as public guidance regarding EnergySolutions' future financial performance. Ernst & Young LLP, EnergySolutions' independent registered public accounting firm, has not examined or compiled or performed any procedures on any of the historical financial data or financial projections, expressed any conclusion or provided any form of assurance with respect to the historical financial data or financial projections and, accordingly, assumes no responsibility for them. The inclusion of this information in this presentation should not be regarded as an indication that EnergySolutions or any recipient of this information considered, now considers or will consider this information to be necessarily predictive of future results. EnergySolutions does not intend to update or otherwise revise the historical financial data or financial projections to correct any errors existing in such historical financial data or financial projections when made, to reflect circumstances existing after the date when made or to reflect the occurrence of future events even in the event that any or all of the assumptions underlying the historical financial data or financial projections are shown to be in error. Although presented with numerical specificity, the financial projections and forecasts included in this presentation are based on numerous estimates, assumptions and judgments (in addition to those described above) that may not be realized and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies related to factors, such as the profitability of the Zion project and related project cost management and nuclear decommissioning trust fund investment earnings performance; our inability to find a partner for the Zion project and access related restricted cash; our ability to obtain and comply with federal, state and local government permits and approvals; the politically sensitive environment in which we operate, the risks associated with radioactive materials and the public perception of those risks; the effects of environmental, health and safety laws and regulations governing, among other things, discharges to air and water, the handling, storage and disposal of hazardous or radioactive materials and wastes, the remediation of contamination associated with releases of hazardous substances and human health and safety; the availability and allocation of government funds to performance of existing government contracts in our industry and any future government contracts; our deferred tax assets for net operating loss carry-forwards and research and development tax credits; the continued operation of, and adequate capacity at, our Clive, Utah disposal facility; factors associated with our international operations; our ongoing business relationships with significant government and commercial customers; our license stewardship arrangement with Exelon; our ability to obtain the financial support, including letters of credit and bonding, necessary for us to win certain types of new work; industry performance; general business, economic, market and financial conditions; and the other factors listed in this presentation under the section entitled “Cautionary Statements," which are difficult to predict and most of which are beyond the control of EnergySolutions. These or other factors may cause the financial projections or the underlying assumptions and estimates to be inaccurate. Since the financial projections cover multiple years, such information by its nature becomes less reliable with each successive year. The financial projections also do not take into account any circumstances or events occurring after the date they were prepared. The inclusion of the financial projections and forecasts in this presentation shall not be deemed an admission or representation by EnergySolutions that such information is material. The inclusion of the projections should not be regarded as an indication that EnergySolutions considered or now considers them to be a reliable prediction of future results and you should not rely on them as such. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the financial projections will be realized, and actual results may vary materially from those reflected in the projections. You should read the section entitled “Cautionary Statements" for additional information regarding the risks inherent in forward-looking information such as the financial projections. Certain of the historical financial data and financial projections set forth herein may be considered non-U.S. GAAP financial measures. Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with U.S. GAAP, and non-U.S. GAAP financial measures as used by EnergySolutions may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts used by other companies.

5 A Compelling Transaction For Shareholders Compelling Valuation: The transaction offers a substantial premium over recent stock price and trading multiple history, and compares very favorably to precedent transactions in the sector Extensive Review of Alternatives: EnergySolutions and its Board explored a broad range of strategic alternatives for the business including asset sales and capital raises, and concluded that the transaction with Energy Capital Partners provides superior value to shareholders Diligent and Comprehensive Strategic Process: EnergySolutions undertook a comprehensive process to evaluate potential partners for the business and received no superior actionable proposals Independent Committee and Advisors: The Special Committee, and later Transactions Committee, each comprised of independent directors, reviewed all prospective alternatives and determined that the proposed merger was in the best interests of the shareholders. Goldman Sachs served as financial advisor and Skadden Arps served as legal counsel Certain Value in an Uncertain Environment: The transaction provides a cash payment today beyond what could be expected under management’s risk-adjusted go forward business plan, given the substantial macroeconomic and operational risks faced by the company as a standalone entity Resolution of Capital Structure Challenges: The transaction resolves significant refinancing risk associated with debt repayment Floating fnotes 1 2 3 4 5 6

21 No Actionable Alternative To Raise Capital While Facing Growing Cash Need 1.

Rights offerings which represented over 50% of market capitalization had an average discount of ~51%. Alternatives Considerations $200 million cash collateralized LC requirement associated with Zion remains in place throughout the project (2020) Facilities letters of credit of $110 million associated with the Clive facility are required for decommissioning Additional cash-collateralized letters of credit have been, and would continue to be, required to grow revenues under current capital structure Significant challenges to raise additional debt given covenant and cash flow constraints Refinancing would be prohibitively expensive and would require significant reduction in total leverage levels Equity issuance costly and dilutive to existing ES shareholders $200mm equity issuance would have required ES to isue potentially over 100% of basic shares outstanding¹ Material execution risk Asset sale processes have failed: Government: Contacted 16 potential partners Magnox / ESEUS: Contacted 8 potential partners ZIon: Contacted 5 potential partners On February 15, 2013, term loan holders approved post-transaction de-leveraging of business Risk of losing access to capital markets without transaction Restricted Cash Debt Equity Asset Sales Sale of Company

22 Analysts Recognize The Value Of The Deal Given The Company’s Challenges “In the end, the sale is acknowledgement that ES would struggle to overcome the high financing costs as well as balance sheet risk and such leverage would continue to suffocate the business preventing it from taking on disposal risk related to its strategic landfill in Clive, Utah” - Al Kaschalk – Wedbush (January 7, 2013) “No shortage of interested parties . . . . . But very few takers and Zion the likely culprit. We expect shareholders to grudgingly approve the deal (and lower our PT to $3.75) given the likelihood of a share price decline if the deal fails. If the deal is declined, there would be significant uncertainty on management/board and the company would likely need equity” - Dan Mannes – Avondale (February 11, 2013) “ . . . We believe the valuation is fair given that the company is being sold in its entirety and given where the stock has been over the past six months” - Alex Rygiel – FBR (January 7, 2013)
