In the case of proxies sent to the Company or granted in favour of its Directors or of the Secretary of the Board of Directors, whether directly or through the entities acting as custodian of the shares or entrusted with recording the book entries in relation thereto, the following rules shall apply, unless otherwise directed by the appointing shareholder:

  1. Unless otherwise indicated by the shareholder appointing a proxy, the proxyholder shall be deemed to have specific instructions to vote in favour of all proposals made by the Board of Directors on the Agenda items for the meeting. In the event the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting should vote on proposals not included on the agenda, the proxyholder shall exercise the vote he/she deems most convenient to the interests of the appointing shareholder.
    If shareholders representing at least three percent of the share capital have exercised their right to add Agenda items or submit proposed resolutions, the Company shall immediately publish said supplemental agenda items and new proposed resolutions, issuing a new form of attendance, proxy and distance voting card incorporating all required amendments to ensure that said new agenda items and alternative proposed resolutions may be voted on under the same terms as proposals made by the Board of Directors.
  2. In the event that the person to whom the proxy is delegated is not named, said proxy shall be deemed to have been granted to the Chairman of the Board of Directors.
  3. If the proxyholder so appointed is legally subject to a conflict of interest in voting on any of the proposals submitted to the General Shareholders’ Meeting, whether included on the Agenda or not, and provided no specific voting instructions were issued or, if despite having such instructions, the proxyholder wishes not to represent the shareholder with regard to the items with which there is a conflict of interest, the proxy shall be deemed to be delegated to, unless otherwise specified by the appointing shareholder, the Chairman of the General Meeting and, if the Chairman also has a conflict of interest, to the Secretary of the General Meeting and, if the Secretary has a conflict of interest, to the person appointed by the Board of Directors.
  4. Likewise, the delegation of powers extends to topics that may be submitted to a vote of the General Shareholders’ Meeting even though they are not included on the Agenda for the Meeting. In this case, and except as indicated otherwise by the appointing shareholder, the proxyholder shall exercise the vote in the sense he/she deems most convenient to the interests of the appointing shareholder.

The following is reported as regards potential conflicts of interest:

  • The Director Mr. Antonio Cammisecra has a conflict of interest in relation to his own ratification and appointment (Item 13).
  • The Directors have a conflict of interest as relates to Items 18 and 19 (Binding vote on the Annual Report on Director Remuneration, and approval of the Director Remuneration Policy for 2020-2022).
  • The Director José Damián Bogas Gálvez has a conflict of interest in relation to Item 20 (Approval of the Strategic Incentive Plan for 2020-2022, which includes amounts linked to the Company’s share price).

In this same regard, the Directors may have a conflict of interest if any liability actions or proposals for removal are brought against them.

In accordance with Article 11 of the General Meeting Regulations, financial intermediaries who have standing as shareholders but who also act on behalf of various clients may divide their vote in such a manner that allows them to abide by the instructions received from such clients.

C- BASIC RULES ON DISTANCE VOTING BEFORE AND DURING THE MEETING AND PROXIES BEFORE THE MEETING

1 Deadline for receipt by the Company of proxies and distance votes before the holding of the General Meeting

In order to be valid and in accordance with the provisions of the General Meeting Regulations, both proxies and long-distance votes (whether submitted electronically or by post) shall be received by the Company before 11:59 p.m. on 4 May 2020. Otherwise the proxy shall be deemed not to have been granted and the vote not cast, excluding as received following said deadline, in all cases prior to the holding of the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting, such that the proper verification and computation may be completed with a view towards preparing and holding said Meeting.

2 Priority rules between proxy, distance voting and physical or telematic attendance at the General Meeting

2.1 Priorities between proxy, distance voting and physical or telematic attendance

(i) Attendance in person or by telematic means at the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting for which the shareholder has previously granted a proxy or cast a long-distance vote, regardless of the means used for such purpose, shall render such proxy or vote null and void. Also, note that, where appropriate, physical attendance will render telematic attendance null and void.

(ii) Likewise, a vote, regardless of the manner in which it was cast, will render any proxy granted ineffective, whether granted electronically or by means of a printed card. If the proxy was granted before the vote was cast, the proxy will be considered revoked, and if granted subsequently, it shall be considered void.

2.2 Priorities between proxies

In the event that a shareholder validly appoints several proxies, the last proxy received by the Company shall prevail.

2.3 Priorities between distance votes prior to the holding of the Meeting

In the event that a shareholder validly casts more than one distance vote, the last vote received by the Company shall prevail.

2.4 Distance voting before or during the holding of the General Meeting

A shareholder who wishes to cast a long-distance vote (through electronic means or by post) must indicate the specific vote for each Agenda item. If no specific vote is indicated for any of the items on the Agenda, the vote shall be deemed to be made in favour of the proposals submitted by the Board of Directors on such Agenda items, as drafted thereby.

If shareholders representing at least three percent of the share capital have exercised their right to add agenda items or submit proposed resolutions, the Company shall immediately publish said supplemental agenda items and new proposed resolutions, issuing a new form of attendance, proxy and distance voting card incorporating all required amendments to ensure that said new agenda items and alternative proposed resolutions may be voted on under the same terms as proposals made by the Board of Directors.

2.5 Other provisions

In the event that electronic means are employed, prior to the holding of the General Meeting, only one electronic action per type of operation (one vote and one proxy) is allowed.

Disposal of the shares conferring the attendance right acknowledged by the Company will result in both proxies and distance votes prior to the General Meeting being considered null and void.

The shareholder is exclusively responsible for the custody of his/her electronic signature for the purposes of voting or granting a proxy electronically.

3 Special rules

All shareholders who are legal persons as well as shareholders not resident in Spain should contact the Shareholder Relations Line (900 666 900) to discuss the possibility of, where applicable, adapting the long-distance voting and proxy mechanisms to their needs while still providing adequate guarantees.

Furthermore, shareholders who are legal persons shall be required to notify the Company of any change or revocation in the powers held by their representative, and Endesa shall therefore not accept any liability whatsoever until such notification has been issued.

Any of the joint holders of a share pool may attend and vote directly or by proxy, and the rules on priority established in section C.2 herein shall apply among them. For the purposes of Article 126 of the Spanish Corporate Enterprises Act, it shall be construed that the joint holder who, at any time, performs an action (voting directly or by proxy, or physical or remote attendance), has been appointed by the rest of the joint owners to exercise their shareholder rights. In these cases, the first of the holders registered (physically or remotely) at the meeting shall be considered the attendee. In relation thereto and for the purposes of Article 126 of the Spanish Corporate Enterprises Act, it shall be construed that the joint holder first registered (physically or remotely) at the meeting shall be the one appointed by the remainder of the joint owners to exercise their shareholder rights.

4. TECHNICAL INCIDENTS

Endesa reserves the right to modify, suspend, cancel or restrict the electronic voting and proxy mechanisms when so required for technical or security reasons.

Endesa shall not be liable for any damages which may be caused to a shareholder arising out of breakdowns, overloads, dropped lines, failed connections, malfunctioning of postal service or any other circumstances of a like or similar nature which are beyond Endesa’s control and which prevent the use of the long-distance voting and proxy mechanisms.

Electronic Shareholder Forum

The Board of Directors has decided, in accordance with the provisions of Article 539 of the Spanish Corporate Enterprises Act, that at the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting, the rules of operation of the Electronic Shareholder Forum published on the Company’s website and available to the shareholders at the registered offices shall apply, as from the date of publication of the pertinent official meeting notice.

Processing of Personal Data

The personal data submitted by the shareholders to exercise or delegate their attendance and voting rights at the General Meeting, or which are furnished by banking institutions, brokers and dealers with whom shareholders have their shares deposited, through the entity legally qualified to carry out the record of book entries (IBERCLEAR), shall be processed by the Company, as the controller, for handling the call and conduct of the General Meeting, and ensuring compliance with legal obligations. All of this in compliance with legal obligations.

The General Meeting will be recorded and broadcast, and may be available to the public, wholly or in part, via the corporate web page and on accredited media. Attendance to the General Meeting implies that the attendee accepts and consents expressly, unequivocally and conclusively to the recording, processing, reproduction, distribution, public communication, viewing and dissemination on the Company’s corporate channels and by Endesa, S.A. or third-party media of their voice, likeness and any other personal data that may be captured or expressed in the course of the General Meeting. The legal basis for the processing of data entailing images of voice is both the existence of a legitimate interest on the part of the Company to record and broadcast the General Meeting, which is recognised in applicable transparency and good corporate governance rules and principles, and the consent of the attendee at the General Meeting, as there are alternative means available for exercising his/her rights.

Where in the attendance or distance voting card includes personal data referring to other natural persons, the shareholder must inform them of the restrictions contained in this data protection disclaimer and comply with any other requirements applicable for the proper disclosure of personal data to the Company, without the latter having to perform any additional actions in terms of information or consent. Shareholders are responsible for the accuracy of the data provided and for notifying the Company of any modifications thereto.

Personal data shall be kept as long as the shareholder remains a shareholder and does not request its erasure or cancellation, and the data are adequate, pertinent and limited strictly to the purposes for which it is processed. Once it is no longer needed for this purpose, the data shall be blocked for as long a period as may be required for the exercise or defence against administrative or legal proceedings and may only be unblocked and processed again for this reason. After this period, the data shall be deleted definitively.

The data will be provided to the notary, who will attend the General Meeting as provided for by law. It may also be provided to third parties in exercise of the right to information established by law.

You may exercise your right of access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and data portability in the situations and with the scope established in applicable legislation at any given time. To exercise these rights, please notify the Secretariat of the Board of Directors in writing, at Madrid, C/ Ribera del Loira,60, 28042.

You are also informed that you have the right to file a claim with the Spanish Data Protection Agency.
