NRG Energy, Inc.

The tender offer includes a concurrent consent solicitation respecting indenture amendments that would significantly modify and remove certain restrictive covenants in the indenture governing the 2017 Notes. The table below sets forth the results of the tender offer and consent solicitation for the 2017 Notes, according to information provided by the depositary, as of the early tender and consent deadline of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 21, 2012.

Based on such tenders and separate consents delivered, the proposed amendments have been approved.
