On November 14, 2017, Ellomay Capital Ltd. (the “Company”) issued a press release titled “Ellomay Capital Reports an Update to the Standard & Poors Maalot Rating”, attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

As noted in the press release, pursuant to the terms of the Company’s Series B Debentures, a rating downgrade such as the downgrade described in the press release triggers an increase of 0.25% to the annual interest rate payable on the principal of the Series B Debentures as follows:

1.
During the period commencing upon the current interest period (i.e., June 30, 2017) and until the date in which the rating was reduced (i.e., November 13, 2017), the principal of the Debentures will bear an annual interest rate of 3.44%.

2.
During the period commencing upon the date in which the rating was reduced (i.e., November 13, 2017) and until the next interest payment date (i.e., December 31, 2017) the principal of the Debentures will bear an annual interest rate of 3.69%.

3.
Based on the annual interest rates set forth above, the weighted-average interest rate payable on the outstanding principal of the Debentures on the next interest payment date will be 1.7533%, representing an annual interest rate of 3.5983%.

4.
The annual and semi-annual interest rates for the next payment periods of the Debentures will be 3.69% and 1.845%, respectively.
