On December 19, 2017, Kenon Holdings Ltd. (“Kenon”) held an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (the “Extraordinary General Meeting”) for the purposes of voting on each of the proposals set forth below:

·
Proposal 1: Ordinary resolution to ratify the sale of IC Power Ltd.’s Latin American and Caribbean power generation and distribution businesses (the “Sale”); and

·
Proposal 2: Special resolution to authorise a capital reduction in respect of a potential distribution of a portion of the proceeds received from the Sale to Kenon’s shareholders, should Kenon’s Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, determine to declare such a distribution.

A quorum was present for the Extraordinary General Meeting and Kenon is pleased to announce that each proposal was duly approved by Kenon’s shareholders at the Extraordinary General Meeting.

For further information on the terms of the Sale, please see the Proxy and Information Statement. Additionally, as set forth in the Proxy and Information Statement, Kenon's Board of Directors has not, and may not, declare a distribution and the completion of any potential distribution, if declared, remains subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.
