- The sterling pound tranche, with a 25-year-maturity, amounted GBP500 million, with a 5.5% coupon.

- The issue is part of the active financial policy initiated by EDF with a view to lengthening the average maturity of the Group's gross debt. This stands at 9.4 years after this issue against 9.2 years as of Dec.31, 2011, while maintaining unchanged the Group's average cost of debt at 4.3%.
