Dublin, February 11, 2021. Alternus Energy Group Plc (“Alternus” or the “Company”), Reference is made to today’s notice on NOTC on “the Migration of Participating Securities”.
Attached is the notice for an extraordinary general meeting that will be held at Alternus Energy’s premises at Suite 11, Plaza 212, Blanchardstown Corporate Park 2, Dublin, Ireland on 24 February 2021, at 12.00 p.m. (CET).
As a result of the withdrawal of the UK from the EU, the UK-based CREST settlement system will soon no longer be able to provide settlement services to Irish incorporated listed companies.

All recommendations and applicable law will be taken into account in the arrangements for the holding of the EGM. If the current (or similarly more extensive) restrictions relating to COVID-19 are in force at the time of the Extraordinary General Meeting, Alternus Energy will be required to hold the EGM as a closed meeting (i.e., not generally open to the public).
