ITM Power PLC

("ITM Power" or the "Group" or the "Company")

ITM Power raises GBP250m

Manufacturing expanded to 5GW per annum by 2024

Results of Capital Raise and Notice of General Meeting

On 14 October 2021, ITM Power plc (AIM: ITM) , the energy storage and clean fuel company, announced the launch of a placing (the "Placing") by way of an accelerated bookbuild (the "Launch Announcement") by Investec Bank plc ("Investec") and Merrill Lynch International ("BofA Securities"). The Placing has now closed.

The Company is pleased to announce that the Placing was oversubscribed, and that it has conditionally placed 57,495,000 Placing Shares with institutional investors and certain directors at a price of 400 pence per New Share (the "Issue Price"). In conjunction with the Placing, Linde and a member of the senior management have subscribed for 5,005,000 new ordinary shares (the "Subscription Shares", and together with the Placing Shares, the "New Shares") in the capital of the Company (the "Subscription" and together with the Placing, the "Capital Raise") . The total gross proceeds of such Director and management participation will be approximately GBP0.5 million.

The total gross proceeds from the Capital Raise will be, approximately GBP250 million. The New Shares will, when issued, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing issued Ordinary Shares. The New Shares being issued represent approximately 11.4 per cent of the existing issued ordinary share capital of the Company prior to the Capital Raise.

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 4 November 2021 (or such date as may be agreed between the Company and Investec, being no later than 8.00 a.m. on 18 November 2021).

The Capital Raise is conditional upon, amongst other things, shareholder approval and Admission becoming effective. The Placing is also conditional on the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms.

Following Admission, the total number of ordinary shares in issue in the Company will be 613,158,155. The Company holds no shares in treasury, and therefore the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 613,158,155 following Admission, and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Capitalised terms used in this announcement ("Announcement") have the meanings given to them in the Launch Announcement, unless the context provides otherwise.

Circular and General Meeting

Completion of the Capital Raise is conditional upon, inter alia, the approval by Shareholders of certain resolutions to be proposed at a general meeting of the Group (the "General Meeting"). Notice of the General Meeting will be set out in the Circular. The General Meeting will be held at 10:00 a.m. on 3 November 2021.

The health of the Company's employees, Shareholders and stakeholders is of extreme importance to the Company. In view the COVID-19 pandemic and provisions of The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2021 and associated legislation, which have permitted greater flexibility regarding the manner in which companies can hold general meetings, the General Meeting will not be held at a physical venue.

However, in order to ensure that Shareholders are able to follow the proceedings of the General Meeting, the Company will provide access to an online audio and presentation link, accessible via the online Investor Meet Company platform. Shareholders that wish to attend the General Meeting should register for the event in advance via the following link: https://www.investormeetcompany.com/itm-power-plc/register-investor . The online presentation link will be opened on or around the 14 October 2021. However, please note that Shareholders will not be able to vote at the General Meeting via the online presentation link.

Shareholders are therefore requested to submit their votes in respect of the business to be considered at the General Meeting via proxy as early as possible. Shareholders should appoint the Chair of the General Meeting as their proxy. Under the current meeting arrangements, if a Shareholder appoints someone else as their proxy, that proxy will not be able to attend the AGM in person or cast the Shareholder's vote. All resolutions at the General Meeting will be decided on a poll.

The Board will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves (including the UK Government's measures in response to it) and, if the situation or applicable restrictions change in advance of the General Meeting such that the Board determines that it is safe to make alternative arrangements for the General Meeting, it will announce these via RNS and the Company's website: https://www.itm-power.com/investor-news .

This Announcement and the Disclosure Package may contain and the Company may make verbal statements containing "forward-looking statements" with respect to certain of the Company's plans and its current goals and expectations relating to its future financial condition, performance, strategic initiatives, objectives and results. Forward-looking statements sometimes use words such as "aim", "anticipate", "target", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "plan", "goal", "believe", "seek", "may", "could", "outlook" or other words of similar meaning. By their nature, all forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances which are beyond the control of the Company.

Recipients of this Announcement and/or the Disclosure Package who are considering acquiring Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing are reminded that they should conduct their own investigation, evaluation and analysis of the business, data and property described in this Announcement and/or the Disclosure Package.

PERSONS INTO WHOSE POSSESSION THIS ANNOUNCEMENT COMES ARE REQUIRED BY THE COMPANY AND THE JOINT BOOKRUNNERS TO INFORM THEMSELVES ABOUT, AND TO OBSERVE, SUCH RESTRICTIONS.

UK Product Governance

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements of Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any 'manufacturer' (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such Placing Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all permitted distribution channels (the "UK target market assessment"). Notwithstanding the UK target market assessment, 'distributors' (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) should note that: the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The UK target market assessment is without prejudice to any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the UK target market assessment, the Banks will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties. For the avoidance of doubt, the UK target market assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Chapters 9A or 10A respectively of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Placing Shares.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own UK target market assessment in respect of the Placing Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
