Next Steps
 
Carbon Revolution will apply to the Federal Court of Australia for approval of the Scheme, subject to any conditions to the scheme being satisfied.
 
Carbon Revolution has a scheduled Court hearing for the Scheme on 18 October 2023.
 
If the Court approves the Scheme, a copy of the Court orders will be lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, following which the Scheme will become legally effective, and at the close of trading on the relevant day (expected to be 19 October 2023) Carbon Revolution Shares will be suspended from trading on ASX.

These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this communication, and on the current expectations of CBR’s and TRCA’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability.
