Giuliano Zuccoli is standing down from the Alpiq Holding Ltd. Board

Dr. Giuliano Zuccoli is to stand down from the Board of Alpiq Holding Ltd. The reasons he gave for his decision were related to the sale, announced some time ago, of the 5.16 percent stake held by the Italian company A2A S.p.A. in Alpiq. Zuccoli, who is president of the management committee of A2A, has been a member of the Alpiq Board of the former Atel Holding Ltd. Board since 2003.

There are no plans to designate a successor at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting of Alpiq Holding Ltd. to be held in Lausanne on 22 April 2010.
