Interim Dividend Declaration

SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc is pleased to announce the second interim dividend in respect of the year ended 31 March 2020 of 2.5 pence per Ordinary Share. The shares will go ex-dividend on 4 June 2020 and the dividend will be paid on 30 June 2020 to shareholders on the register as at the close of business on 5 June 2020.

This second interim dividend along with the first interim dividend of 2.5 pence per Ordinary Share, paid in December 2019, takes the total dividend in respect of the year ended 31 March 2020 to 5.0 pence per Ordinary Share - equal to the target set by the Company at the time of its IPO in December 2018.

As previously stated, the Company intends to move to paying interim dividends on a quarterly rather than semi-annual basis from the financial year starting 1 April 2020.
