The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of certain Romanian electricity generation, electricity distribution, and electricity and natural gas retail
supply assets, currently held by ČEZ a.s. (‘CEZ’) of Czechia, by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (Europe) Limited (‘MIRA’) of the UK. The Romanian assets of CEZ consist of an electricity
distribution network and various wind and hydroelectric energy generation assets as well as retail supply of gas and electricity assets, all based in Romania.

MIRA is active in the management of infrastructure and other real assets, including real estate, energy and agricultural assets. MIRA is part of Macquarie Group Limited of Australia, a global
investment, banking and financial services provider. The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns, because it would not result in any overlaps
between the activities of the companies. The transaction was examined under the simplified merger review procedure.
