Change in Annual Interest Rate on the Company’s Series B Debentures

On September 25, 2019, Ellomay Capital Ltd. (the “Company”) issued a press release titled “Ellomay Capital Reports Results for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2019 (the “Press Release”). As noted in the Press Release, pursuant to the terms of the Company’s Series B Debentures, the Company annual interest rate on the Series B Debentures will increase by 0.5% commencing on the date of publication of the Press Release, due to a failure to meet one of the financial standards included in the Series B Debentures relating to the ratio of the Company’s equity to balance sheet. For more information, see Item 5.B. and Exhibit 4.24 of the Company’s annual report on Form 20-F, published by the Company on March 29, 2019.

The change in the annual interest rate on the Company’s Series B Debentures will be implemented until such time as the Series B Debentures are repaid in full, declared for immediate repayment or until such time as the Company publishes financial results reflecting the Company’s return to compliance with the ratio of the balance sheet to equity standard. The effect of the change will be as follows:

1.
During the period commencing upon the current interest period (i.e., June 30, 2019) and until the date in which the Company published the Press Release (i.e., September 25, 2019), the principal of the Series B Debentures will bear an interest rate of 0.87953% (based on 365 days per year).

2.
During the period commencing upon the publication of the Press Release (i.e., September 25, 2019) and until the next interest payment date (i.e., December 31, 2019) the principal of the Series B Debentures will bear an interest rate of 1.11351%% (based on 365 days per year).

3.
Based on the interest rates set forth above, the weighted-average interest rate payable on the outstanding principal of the Series B Debentures on the next interest payment date will be 1.99304%. The annual interest rate represented by such weighted-average interest rate is 3.83804%.

4.
The annual and semi-annual interest rates for the next payment periods of the Series B Debentures will be 4.19% and 2.095%%, respectively.
