Digi Communications N.V. to hold EGM for the appointment of KPMG N.V. as its Statutory Auditor for FY2021

BUCHAREST, Romania, 23-Sep-2021 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — Digi Communications N.V. (The Company) would like to inform the market and its investors that today, 23 September 2021, the Board of Directors of the Company convenes the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (the “EGM”) of the Company (Digi Communications N.V.), to be held on Thursday, 4 November 2021 at 12:00 p.m. CET (13:00 p.m. EET), at the offices of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP (Amsterdam office), Strawinskylaan 10, 1077 XZ Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The EGM is convened in order to appoint KPMG N.V. as the Company’s Statutory Auditor for the financial year 2021, replacing the Company’s former statutory auditor (i.e., Ernst & Young Accountants LLP) that was appointed by the annual general meeting of 18 May 2021. This proposal follows Ernst & Young Accountants LLP’s decision to cease their services due to reasons not related to the Company.

Ernst & Young Accountants LLP’s notification occurred outside of the typical financial reporting cycle and, as a result, the Company expects to be late with the issuance of 2021 statutory audited financial statements, also for reasons related to standard audit procedures and inherent processes and requirements related to onboarding of new clients by an audit firm.

On or before 31 July 2022, the Company estimates that it will publish the audited statutory consolidated and stand-alone financial statements issued in accordance with Dutch accounting standards applicable to our Company (i.e., IFRS as adopted by the European Union and Part 9 of book 2 of the Dutch civil code). The annual General Shareholders Meeting to, inter alia, approve the statutory consolidated and stand-alone financial statements will then only be convened upon publication of the same.

Nevertheless, the Company will disclose to the market the relevant management information, including management accounts on 30 April, 2022. Therefore, the Company will publish the 2021 annual report accompanied by audited non-statutory consolidated financial statements issued in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as adopted by the European Union.

The topic of the EGM is the proposal of KPMG N.V. as the Company’s statutory auditor for the 2021 financial year.

We kindly invite investors to visit the Company’s website at http://www.digi-communications.ro/en/general-share-holders (for English readers) and at http://www.digi-communications.ro/ro/aga (for Romanian readers) to review the documentation package for the EGM.

The document named ‘Agenda and explanatory notes’ contains a detailed description regarding the item for the EGM.

Any shareholder interested in attending or voting at the EGM needs to follow the procedures set out in the articles of association of the Company (available at http://www.digi-communications.ro/en/corporate-governance) and on the ‘Convocation Notice’ available at http://www.digi-communications.ro/en/general-share-holders). The shareholders will also be provided with the possibility to cast their votes via Evote by ING (please see the convening notice attached this report).
