TRANSMISSORA ALIANÇA DE ENERGIA ELÉTRICA S.A. (BM&FBOVESPA Ticker: TAEE11) ("TAESA" or the "Company"), pursuant to Section 157, §4° of Law No. 6,404, dated December 15, 1976, as amended, and the Brazilian Securities and Exchange Commission (Comissão de Valores Mobiliários) ("CVM") Rule No. 358, dated January 3rd, 2002, as amended, hereby informs its shareholders and the market in general of the launch of a restricted offering (the "Restricted Offering") of its units (each unit being evidenced by certificados de depósito de ações, each of which represents one outstanding ação ordinária (common share) and two outstanding ações preferenciais (preferred shares)) (the "Units") to be offered and sold by Fundo de Investimento em Participações Coliseu ("FIP Coliseu") and Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais - CEMIG ("CEMIG" and, together with FIP Coliseu, the "Selling Shareholders"), in accordance with CVM Rule No. 476, dated January 16, 2009, as amended ("CVM Rule 476"). The Restricted Offering will consist of a secondary offering of 65,702,230 Units.

The Restricted Offering of the Units of the Company has not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act, or any other U.S. federal and state securities laws (the "Securities Act"), and the Units may not be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred in the United States or to U.S. investors, unless they are registered, or exempt from, or not subject to, registration under the Securities Act.

The Restricted Offering will consist exclusively of a secondary offering. Accordingly, priority rights will not be granted to existing shareholders of the Company, in accordance with art. 9°A of the CVM Rule 476, and there will be no dilution to existing shareholders of the Company.

This material fact is disclosed for informative purposes only and shall not, under any circumstances, be construed as an investment recommendation. This material fact does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Company’s securities, including the Units, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of that jurisdiction.
