This announcement is made pursuant to Rule 13.10B of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “Listing Rules”).

As resolved at the 2016 annual general meeting of Huaneng Power International, Inc. (the “Company”) held on 13 June 2017, the Company has been given a mandate to issue super short-term debentures (in either one or multiple tranches on rolling basis) with a principal amount of up to RMB32 billion (which means that the outstanding principal balance of the super short-term debentures in issue shall not exceed RMB32 billion at any time within the period as prescribed therein) in the PRC within 24 months from the date on which the shareholders’ approval was obtained.

The Company has recently completed the issue of the second tranche of the Company’s super short- term debentures for 2019 (the “Debentures”). The total issuing amount was RMB5 billion with a maturity period of 180 days whereas the unit face value is RMB100 and the interest rate is 2.30%.

Bank of Ningbo Co., Ltd. acts as the lead underwriter to form the underwriting syndicate for the Debentures, which were placed through book-building and issued in the domestic bond market among banks. The proceeds from the Debentures will be used to supplement the working capital of the headquarters of the Company, adjust debts structure and repay the debt financing instruments due.

The relevant documents in respect of the Debentures are posted on China Money and Shanghai Clearing House at websites of www.chinamoney.com.cn and www.shclearing.com, respectively.
