      eEnergy, the digital energy services company, is pleased to announce it has increased its ownership in the Group's MY ZeERO smart metering and analytics platform from 51% to 85.5%. Since the announcement of interim results on 16 March 2022, meters under contract have increased by 33% to 522, resulting in an increase in contracted revenues to £781,000. The qualified pipeline of sales opportunities has grown from £1.8m to £2.6m. On 25 October 2021, the Group announced it had increased its ownership in MY ZeERO from 37.5% to 51% following the successful completion of specific development milestones.

      * Certain minority investors have agreed to transfer their holdings of £196,500 of loan notes issued by EIL and 2,548 ordinary shares of 1p in EIL to the Group, in each case at their par value.

      * Such amount has been used by the investors to subscribe for 1,637,716 Ordinary Shares ("New Shares") of eEnergy plc at a price of 12 pence per New Share.

      * Following this transfer and the issue of further equity in EIL at nominal value to eEnergy, the Group's interest in EIL will increase from 51.0% to 85.5%.

      * On Admission, the issued share capital of the Company will comprise 346,779,959 Ordinary Shares each with one voting right ("Ordinary Shares").

      Original Press Release:

      May 31 -- eEnergy Group issued the following news release:

      eEnergy (AIM: EAAS), the digital energy services company, is pleased to announce it has increased its ownership in the Group's MY ZeERO smart metering and analytics platform from 51% to 85.5%.

      MY ZeERO trading update

      Since the announcement of interim results on 16 March 2022, meters under contract have increased by 33% to 522, resulting in an increase in contracted revenues to £781,000. The qualified pipeline of sales opportunities has grown from £1.8m to £2.6m.

      Increase in interest in EIL

      On 25 October 2021, the Group announced it had increased its ownership in MY ZeERO from 37.5% to 51% following the successful completion of specific development milestones.

      The Group announces today it has completed a restructuring of the EIL shareholder register in order to increase its economic share of the business, remove consent rights granted to minority investors under the Shareholders Agreement and allow EIL to benefit from funding from the Group's SVB debt facility.

      Certain minority investors have agreed to transfer their holdings of £196,500 of loan notes issued by EIL and 2,548 ordinary shares of 1p in EIL to the Group, in each case at their par value. Such amount has been used by the investors to subscribe for 1,637,716 Ordinary Shares ("New Shares") of eEnergy plc at a price of 12 pence per New Share. Following this transfer and the issue of further equity in EIL at nominal value to eEnergy, the Group's interest in EIL will increase from 51.0% to 85.5%.

      The New Shares and shares previously issued to the same investors in October 2021, will be subject to a new lock in agreement until July 2023.

      Save as set out above, other terms and mechanics of the shareholders agreement remain unchanged. Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 6 June 2022.

      Total Voting Rights

      On Admission, the issued share capital of the Company will comprise 346,779,959 Ordinary Shares each with one voting right ("Ordinary Shares"). The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. Therefore, from Admission, the above figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

      Harvey Sinclair, CEO, eEnergy, commented:

      "I am pleased to announce our increased ownership in MY ZeERO, our Smart Metering Analytics Business, at a time of developing momentum. We first invested in MY ZeERO in April last year as we recognised the opportunity to integrate this proprietary energy analytics hardware and software into our Energy Efficiency division. We are pleased with the rollout of these new smart meters which give eEnergy a differentiated and valuable proposition in the market. The restructuring simplifies the ownership structure and allows for EIL to be further embedded into the Group's operations."
