Cenntro Electric Group Limited Announces Imminent Implementation of the Scheme of Arrangement

FREEHOLD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 26, 2024-- Cenntro Electric Group Limited (NASDAQ: CENN) (“Cenntro” or “the Company”), a leading electric vehicle technology company with advanced, market-validated electric commercial vehicles, refers to the proposed scheme of arrangement in relation to which Cenntro will redomicile from Australia to the United States ("U.S.", the “Scheme”), and under which Cenntro will become a subsidiary of Cenntro Inc., a corporation incorporated in accordance with the laws of the state of Nevada ("HoldCo") for the purpose of effecting the Scheme.

Cenntro is pleased to announce that the Scheme will be implemented tomorrow February 27, 2024, in accordance with the previously announced timeline (the “Implementation Date”). On the Implementation Date, HoldCo will acquire all of the issued ordinary shares of Cenntro and exchange them for shares of common stock of HoldCo on a 1:1 basis. Implementation of the Scheme will not affect trading of shares on Nasdaq under ticker symbol "CENN". Shares of common stock of HoldCo issued in exchange for Cenntro ordinary shares will remain tradable under the same Nasdaq ticker symbol, “CENN” on and from the Implementation Date. The CUSIP number attributable to the Cenntro ordinary shares will change from Cenntro’s CUSIP number—Q6519V120, to HoldCo’s CUSIP number—150964104 on the Implementation Date.

As previously announced on February 16, 2024, all eligible Cenntro shareholders who held ordinary shares in the Company as at 7:00pm (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) on February 22, 2024 (the "Record Date") will be issued one share of common stock of HoldCo in exchange for every one ordinary share of Cenntro which they held as at the Record Date. Cenntro and HoldCo anticipate that statements of shareholdings will be dispatched to eligible Cenntro shareholders to confirm the settlement and issue of common stock of HoldCo, commencing on February 29, 2024.

Cenntro has requested by way of submission of a “corporate action” form to Nasdaq, and Nasdaq has previously approved, the exchange of Cenntro ordinary shares into shares of common stock of HoldCo from the close of trading on Nasdaq one trading day immediately prior to the Implementation Date, in order to effect a transfer of the listing of Cenntro to a listing of HoldCo. Cenntro and HoldCo anticipate that common stock of HoldCo will be listed on Nasdaq, and trading will commence, from commencement of trade on the Implementation Date.
