Execution of a Binding Term Sheet in connection with the Acquisition of Minority Interests in Waste-to-Energy Projects in the Netherlands

Ellomay Capital Ltd. (the “Company”), hereby announces, following publications by Ludan Engineering Company Ltd. (“Ludan”) in Israel, that the Company executed a binding term sheet (the “Term Sheet”) with Ludan and several entities affiliated with Ludan for the acquisition by Ellomay Luxemburg Holdings S.àr.l., the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, of 49% of the companies that own the anaerobic digestion plans in Goor and Oude-Tonge, both in the Netherlands (together, the “WtE Projects”).

As the Company currently indirectly owns 51% of the WtE Projects, following consummation of the acquisition contemplated by the Term Sheet, the Company will indirectly wholly-own the WtE Projects in their entirety. The consummation of the acquisition contemplated by the Term Sheet is subject to customary conditions to closing, including the approval of the financing bank of the WtE Projects and the approval of the Board of Directors of the Company.

The Term Sheet also provides for the immediate (and unconditional) termination of the operations and maintenance arrangement of the WtE projects with Ludan affiliates effective as of the date of the Term Sheet.
