Endergonic reaction

Would an endergonic reaction result in the production of ATP or ADP molecules?

endergonic reaction is a reaction that requires energy. That energy is obtained by the hydrolysis of ATP to produce ADP + Pi with the release of about 31 KJ of energy that is needed for that endergonic reaction to occur.

so your saying that the ATP is broken and the stored energy is released and now available to fuel a cellular reaction?
