Item 5.07.
Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at 4.00pm (Eastern Standard Time) (“EST”), Thursday, January 25, 2024 at 5.00am (China Standard Time) (“CST”) and Thursday, January 25, 2024, at 8.00am (AEDT), Cenntro Electric Group Limited ACN 619 054 938 (the "Company") held a scheme meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Scheme Meeting”) to consider and, if thought fit, to agree for the Company to adopt a scheme resolution (the “Scheme Resolution”) to implement a scheme of arrangement pursuant to which the Company will redomicile from Australia into a new corporation formed under the laws of the State of Nevada, Cenntro Inc. (the “HoldCo”), under which the HoldCo will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company on a one-for-one basis (the “Scheme”). The required quorum was presented for the Scheme Meeting. The following scheme resolution was voted upon, and the preliminary voting results with respect to such resolution are set forth below.

Scheme Resolution:

At the Scheme Meeting, shareholders of the Company were asked to consider and, if thought fit, vote for the Company to pass (with or without amendment) the following resolution:

“That, under and in accordance with section 411 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), the members agree to the arrangement proposed between Cenntro Electric Group Ltd (“Cenntro”) and holders of its ordinary shares, designated the “Scheme”, as contained in and more particularly described in the Scheme Booklet accompanying the notice convening this meeting (with or without alterations or conditions required or approved by the Supreme Court of New South Wales to which Cenntro and Cenntro Inc. agree) and the Board of Cenntro is authorised to implement the Scheme with any such alterations or conditions.”

Details of the number of votes, percentage of votes and number of shareholders voting via valid proxies received and votes cast are set out below.

The foregoing preliminary voting results will ultimately be updated through the filing of an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the certification of voting results of the Scheme Meeting. At this time, the Company does not know when the certification of the Scheme Meeting vote results will occur and there can be no assurance that the outcome of the final results will be consistent with the outcome of the estimated vote results indicated on this Form 8-K.

Based on the preliminary results the Company believes the Scheme Resolution, as set forth above, and in the Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14-A comprised of the Notice of Meeting and Scheme Booklet dated Thursday, December 14, 2023, was passed by the requisite majorities of Company shareholders at the Scheme Meeting held on Wednesday, January 24, 2024 (United States Eastern Standard Time) pursuant to orders made by the Supreme Court of New South Wales, Australia (the "Court").

Item 8.01.

If the outstanding conditions precedent are satisfied or waived (if applicable) prior to the Court hearing, and the Court approves the Scheme, the Company proposes to file an office copy of the orders of the Court with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ("ASIC") (expected to occur on the next business day, Friday,  February 2, 2024 (Australian Eastern Daylight Time)), at which time the Scheme will become effective.
