ETHERNITY NETWORKS LTD.

("Ethernity" or the "Company")

Notice of AGM, Issue of Director Shares and Options, and Further re Directorate Change

Ethernity Networks (AIM: ENET), a leading supplier of networking processing technology ported on FPGA (field programmable gate array) for virtualised networking appliances, announces that its notice of annual general meeting ("AGM") is being despatched to shareholders. A copy of the AGM notice, together with the forms of proxy and direction, are available on the Company's website at: www.ethernitynet.com .

The Company's AGM (the "Meeting") will be held at the offices of the Company at 3rd Floor, Beit Golan, 1 Golan St. Corner HaNegev, Airport City 7019900 Israel at 9.00 a.m. UK time (11.00 a.m. Israel time) on 16 May 2022.

Shareholder's attention is drawn to the voting procedures under the current COVID-19 situation, detailed in the AGM notice.

Issue of Shares to a Director

Under his contract, Yosi Albagli receives a portion of his annual remuneration as non-Executive Chairman in Ethernity shares.

Consequently, the Company will issue 37,106 new ordinary shares of NIS 0.001 each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to Mr Albagli, in satisfaction of the share element of his remuneration for the period from 10 March 2021 to 28 February 2022, following which he will be interested in 37,106 Ordinary Shares representing 0.05% of the Company's enlarged issued share capital.

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for 37,106 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission") and Admission is expected to occur on or around 14 April 2022. The new Ordinary Shares will, upon issue, rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares in the Company. Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued share capital will be 75,388,844 Ordinary Shares. The Company holds no Ordinary Shares in Treasury. This figure of 75,388,844 Ordinary Shares 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 in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Issue of Options to Directors

On 8 April 2022, following a recommendation of the Company's Remuneration Committee, the Board of Directors awarded a grant of 200,000 options over Ordinary Shares, at an exercise price of 29p per Ordinary Share, to each of David Levi (CEO) and Shavit Baruch (Executive Director) under the terms of the Company's registered Israel Share Option Plan, vesting over 3 years. Under the Israeli Companies Law this award is subject to and conditional upon the approval by the shareholders at the AGM of the Company on 16 May 2022.
