Following publications in Israel by G.F.C Green Fields Capital Ltd. (“GFC”), Ellomay Capital Ltd. (the “Company”) hereby confirms that it is currently in  advanced negotiations for the execution of a settlement agreement with Erez Electricity Ltd. (“Erez Electricity”), an Israeli private company that holds 33.33% of Sheva Mizrakot Ltd., which in its turn holds 25% of the company promoting the pumped-hydro storage in the Manara Cliff, Israel (the “Manara Project”), in which the Company holds an indirect 75% interest.

The settlement agreement is being negotiated in order to resolve a claim made by Erez Electricity and Mr. Raanan Aloni against the Company and its affiliates, in connection with the Manara Project and other disputes between such parties concerning the Manara Project.

According to the current drafts of the settlement documents (which are yet to be finalized), inter alia, Erez Electricity is intended to maintain its aforementioned holdings in the Manara Project and be granted a right to acquire, on financial closing of the Manara Project (to the extent such financial closing occurs), additional 6.67% of the Manara Project, in consideration for 6.67% of the Manara Project’s total actual cost as of financial closing plus interest at a rate of 5% per annum.

Pursuant to GFC’s publications, subject to the execution and consummation of the settlement and to the execution and consummation of an assignment agreement between Erez Electricity and G.F.C.E Ltd., a company held by Erez Electricity and GFC in equal parts (“GFCE”), Erez Electricity will assign to GFCE its aforementioned holdings in the Manara Project. The consummation of the transactions contemplated by such agreements shall be subject to the fulfillment of various conditions precedent including, inter alia, full and timely payment by Erez Electricity and Raanan Aloni of all their obligations, under all applicable agreements, to the project company and to the Company and its affiliates.
