Additional Quote in Sterling

Volta Finance Limited ("Volta" or the "Company") announces that it intends to introduce an additional market quote in Sterling (the "Sterling Quote") for its existing ordinary shares traded on the London Stock Exchange. This Sterling Quote will exist alongside the Company’s existing Euro market quote on the London Stock Exchange and its listing on Euronext Amsterdam.

For the avoidance of doubt, there will be no changes to the legal form or nature of the Company's shares nor to the reporting currency of the Company's financial statements, which will remain in Euros. 

The Board believes that the addition of the Sterling Quote on the London Stock Exchange will provide an additional option for potential investors, which may broaden the potential ownership and improve the liquidity in the secondary market.

Admission of the Sterling Quote is expected to occur with effect from 8am on 3 September 2018.

The Company’s existing arrangement for its shareholders to be able to elect to receive their dividends in either Euros or Pounds Sterling will remain. Shareholders will, by default, receive their dividends in Euros, unless they have instructed the Company's Registrar, Computershare Investor Services (Guernsey) Limited, to pay dividends in Pounds Sterling. As previously announced, the Company targets the payment of stable annual dividends payable on a quarterly basis, which it expects to pay towards the end of each March, June, September and December.
