PRESS RELEASE Paris La Défense, 21 April 2021 Quarterly financial information at 31 March 2021 Revenues down slightly (-4%), mainly due to several scheduled maintenance shutdowns for the thermal power plants Solid growth dynamic: continued conversion of power plants to all-biomass, development and construction of solar projects and good performance in geothermal energy Confirmation of objectives The Group’s revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was down slightly by 4%. This moderate decline was mainly the result: of scheduled shutdowns carried out during the quarter, representing 146 days of unit outages in the first quarter 2021, compared with 31 days in the first quarter 2020. Some of the annual maintenance shutdowns were postponed because of the health crisis;of unplanned technical shutdowns at a plant on Reunion Island. However, revenues were sustained by: the additional contribution from the full-year effect of the Le Moule 3 conversion premium;the good performance of the Gümüskoÿ geothermal power plant, in line with expectations, owned by the Group since 26 January 2021. 1st quarter 20211st quarter 2020Change (%)France – Thermal Biomass110.9115.8-4%France – Solar Power111.411.6-2%Brazil2.63.2-19%Holding company and other1.20.4nsTotal126.0130.9-4% Including Spain and Italy. France Thermal Biomass Carrying out scheduled shutdowns in plants on Reunion Island and Guadeloupe Revenue for the Thermal Biomass business in France was down 4% compared to the first quarter of 2020, to €110.9 million. The decrease in revenues was mainly due to scheduled shutdowns in the first quarter (i.e. 146 days of unit outages compared with 31 days in the first quarter of 2020), which had been postponed as a result of the health crisis in 2020 and unplanned technical shutdowns at a plant on Reunion Island. The availability rate was 83.3% in the first quarter of 2021 compared with 90.6% in the first quarter of 2020 and power generation from thermal facilities reached 437 GWh, compared with 517 GWh in the first quarter of 2020. Project development 100% biomass for unit 3 of Albioma Le Moule (ALM3) in Guadeloupe - Finalisation of works Unit 3 of the Le Moule plant in Guadeloupe was restarted on 23 November following work to convert it to all-biomass. This conversion will reduce emissions by more than 265,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (a net decrease of around 87% compared with current coal operation), and will increase the renewable portion of Guadeloupe's energy mix from 20% to 35%. Since its return to service, the unit has been operating normally. Conversion of the Bois Rouge power plant to all-biomass Work to convert the power plant to 100% biomass began during this quarter. Locally-available biomass resources (bagasse, forest wood, lagging waste, etc.) will be used as a priority, supplemented by imported traceable (in compliance with the EU timber regulation) and sustainable (FSC or PEFC certification required from our suppliers) biomass, in the form of wood pellets. Eventually, the conversion will increase the renewable portion of Reunion Island's energy mix from 35% to 51% and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 640,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year, that is an 84% decrease of direct emissions compared with the current operation of the plant. In addition, the financing of the investments for the conversion of the plant was signed during the quarter. Solar Power Production up slightly Revenue for the Solar Power business was stable at €11.4 million. Production reached 29 GWh in the first quarter of the year, compared with 27 GWh in the first quarter of 2020. Project development The Group continued the development and construction of photovoltaic power plant projects across all regions during the quarter. The Group had won 40 MWp of projects in 2020, which are scheduled to be commissioned in 2021 and 2022. Brazil Thermal Biomass Between sugar campaigns and maintenance of the plants Between the sugar harvesting campaigns in the first quarter, the Group’s four plants completed their annual maintenance. The business recorded revenue of €2.6 million (compared with €3.2 million in the first quarter of 2020). Excluding currency effects, revenue is up by 9%. Turkey Geothermal energy Production in line with expectations and works for the second half of the year The Gümüskoÿ power plant, acquired in January 2021, performed well during the quarter. Production reached more than 13.5 GWh in the first quarter, in line with expectations and stable compared to the same period last year. With the support of the existing teams, works aiming to increase production are expected to start at the beginning of the second half-year. Confirmation of objectives The Group confirms its 2021 EBITDA targets of €206 to €216 million and net income, Group share of €53 to €59 million (excluding the potential effects of the 2021 Finance Act concerning the revision of photovoltaic tariffs 2006-2010 and new coronavirus-related effects).

A multi-year boom in global house prices which even a pandemic has failed to halt is forcing central banks around the world to confront a knotty question - what, if anything, should they be doing about it? The surge in property values from Australia to Sweden is often viewed benignly by governments as creating wealth. The irony is that while the cheap money created by low or negative interest rates has driven the price rises, they barely figure in central banks' calculations of inflation, one of the key drivers of their monetary policy.

Hearing data analysis points to the wide disparity in hearing wait times and backlogs across the country, with the longest wait times concentrated in the Western U.S. Allsup has released its state-by-state disability backlog ranking. Find the analysis online: Allsup State-by-State Disability Backlog Report. Belleville, Illinois, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Social Security disability hearing backlog and average wait time decreased at a national level in 2020, but not every state saw an improvement. March 2021 hearing data show that former workers with disabilities have vastly different appeal experiences depending on where they live, says Allsup, a nationwide provider of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation and veterans disability appeal services. Allsup has helped more than 350,000 people obtain SSDI since it was founded in 1984. An analysis of Social Security Administration (SSA) hearing records from September 2020 to March identified the states where residents struggled the most to obtain a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ) and noted several areas of concern: Longest wait time for a disability hearing (days): Hawaii (470), Nevada (455), Washington (439), Colorado (411), California (402), New Mexico (384), Arizona (380), Puerto Rico (377), Oregon (368), Kansas (356)Most people waiting for their disability hearing: California (35,297), Texas (26,068), Florida (20,998), Pennsylvania (16,869), New York (16,569), Georgia (12,550), North Carolina (12,348), Ohio (12,240), Alabama (10,960), Missouri (10,435) Find the analysis online: Allsup State-by-State Disability Backlog Report. Further analysis shows that backlogs and long wait times of individual offices within states are even more disparate. “The SSA has taken measures to improve the SSDI hearing level, including the $100 million that Congress appropriated in the 2018 spending bill to specifically lower the hearing backlog,” said Mary Dale Walters, senior vice president at Allsup. “Despite the national average hearing wait time decreasing by 111 days and 157,000 fewer people in the backlog, many hearing offices and states are still lagging,” Walters said. “Eight out of the top 10 offices with the longest wait times were located in the SSA’s Region Nine, which includes California, Arizona, Hawaii, and Nevada. The Tacoma, Washington, office had the longest hearing wait time in the country, with residents waiting 497 days for a hearing, the equivalent of 16 months. In contrast, Evansville, Indiana, had the shortest wait in the nation, averaging 196 days for a hearing. Every Day Counts In a recent survey of its customers, Allsup found that many individuals suffered severe medical and financial strain while waiting extended periods for benefits. Just over 40% borrowed money from friends or relatives, 26% missed credit card or loan payments, 40% saw their primary illness worsen, and 65% experienced anxiety or depression. “When you are suffering from a medical disability, every day counts. Each extra day a former worker seeking benefits must wait means a greater risk of foreclosure, growing debt, and damage to their health due stress and financial circumstances. Over the last decade, 110,000 people died while waiting for benefits,” noted Walters. The value of using an expert SSDI representative Using a representative when you first apply for benefits, Walters said, can “improve the likelihood of obtaining SSDI benefits early and avoiding long wait times.” “The appeals process is very different than the initial application, and it is extremely challenging to navigate without the advantage of an expert guide,” Walters said. “You need someone you can trust with your personal story, who understands your medical history and can effectively explain how your disability has disrupted your life and ability to work.” In 2018, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives analyzed SSA data and found that individuals who used a representative at the hearing level were four times more likely to be approved for benefits than those who did not use one. And 54% of individuals who did not use a representative were denied benefits. Representatives can also confirm the likelihood of eligibility for SSDI before individuals plunge into the process without a clear understanding of the complex rules related to vocational grids, age, work history and medical listings. Representatives are especially valuable as SSA has suspended in-person hearings for those held by video or telephone. These hearings, which typically have lower approval rates and can be more intimidating for the individual, require special preparation and guidance as multiple participants are scattered across multiple locations. Eligibility for SSDI Individuals can use the online tool empower by Allsup® to find out their likelihood of qualifying for SSDI benefits, including if they have filed an appeal. They can also request help and start their appeal with Allsup as their representative, which has average hearing approval rates above 70% (compared to only 45% nationwide). Those who are eligible for SSDI must have worked at least five of the past 10 years, paid FICA taxes, be under full retirement age (65-67), and have a critical medical condition (including terminal illnesses) that prevent them from working for at least 12 months.
