DALLAS –

Energy Future Intermediate Holding Company LLC and EFIH Finance Inc. (collectively, the “Issuers”), both wholly-owned subsidiaries of Energy Future Holdings Corp. (“EFH Corp.”), announced today that they have priced a private offering of $350 million principal amount of additional 11.750% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2022 (the “Additional Notes”). The Additional Notes are being offered as additional notes under the Indenture, dated as of April 25, 2011, as supplemented by the first supplemental indenture, dated as of February 6, 2012, and the second supplemental indenture, to be dated as of the closing date (as so supplemented, “the Indenture”), among the Issuers and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee, pursuant to which the Issuers previously issued $800 million aggregate principal amount of 11.750% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2022 (the “Initial Notes”). The Additional Notes will have identical terms, other than the issue date and issue price, and will constitute part of the same series as the Initial Notes. The offering is expected to close on or about February 28, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. The Issuers intend to use the net proceeds from the offering to pay a dividend of $300 million to EFH Corp., which will use the proceeds of the dividend to repay a portion of the demand notes payable by EFH Corp. to its wholly-owned subsidiary Texas Competitive Electric Holdings Company LLC (“TCEH”) that have arisen from cash loaned by TCEH to EFH Corp. The Issuers will use the remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include dividends to EFH Corp.
