Greencoat Renewables PLC - Revised AGM Arrangements




Dublin, London, 20 April 2020 | Greencoat Renewables PLC ("Greencoat Renewables" or the "Company"), on 20 March 2020, posted Notice of its Annual General Meeting ("AGM") to be held at Davy House, 49 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Ireland at 2.00 p.m. on 29 April 2020 (the "Notice").


The Irish Government and Health Services Executive ("HSE") have since announced further mandatory measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. These include requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes; and stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public. The Board fully supports these measures to protect public health and safety.


Revised Arrangements


As it is no longer permissible to hold the AGM in the way that the Board had planned, the AGM will instead be convened at the offices of Greencoat Capital LLP at 51A Dawson Street, Dublin, D02 TV77, with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders present in order to conduct the business of the meeting. All valid proxy votes on the proposed Resolutions will be included in the voting and the results of the meeting will be announced, in the normal way, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM.


The AGM will be recorded and an audio cast of the meeting will be available for shareholders to listen to subsequently on the Company website at: .


Voting by proxy and not in person


As physical attendance at the AGM will not be permissible, shareholders who wish to register their votes on the Resolutions to be put to the AGM should do so by completing and signing the proxy form that accompanied the 2020 AGM Notice, by using    or appointing a proxy electronically if their shares are held in CREST in accordance with the instructions printed on the proxy form. Please return your forms as soon as possible and, in any event, prior to 2.00 p.m. on 27 April 2020 or not less than 48 hours before the time of the meeting of any adjourned meeting.


If you do not have a proxy form and believe that you should have one, or if you require additional forms or have any additional queries on voting, please contact our Registrar using the details set out below and in Page 10 of the Notice:


Address: Computershare Investor Services (Ireland) Limited, 3100 Lake Drive, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, D24 AK82, Ireland.


The Board considers that all the Resolutions to be put to the meeting are in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole and unanimously recommends that shareholders vote in favour of all the Resolutions, as the Directors intend to do so in respect of their own beneficial holdings.


As the situation in relation to COVID-19 continues, the Company will continue to monitor developments, including any regulatory changes. If it becomes necessary or appropriate to further revise the arrangements for the AGM, further announcements will be made and information will be made available on our website at: .


Shareholder Engagement


The Board considers that beyond voting on the formal business of the meeting, the AGM also serves as a forum for shareholders to raise questions and comments on any of the Resolutions to the Board. Registered shareholders may submit such questions by email to: [email protected] by 2.00 p.m. on 27 April 2020 and can be assured that all questions will receive a response prior to and/or at the meeting.


An electronic copy of the Notice of AGM is available on the Company's website .


A copy of the Notice and Form of Proxy can be inspected at the National Storage Mechanism website at .
