April 2, 2020 – Atlantica Yield plc (“Atlantica”) today announced that its 2020 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will be held on May 5, 2020 at c/ Francisco Silvela 42, 4 floor 28028 Madrid, Spain with satellite meeting places at Great West House, GW1, 17th Floor, Great West Road, Brentford TW8 9DF, United Kingdom (“UK”) and Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP, 222 Bay Street, Suite 1750, Toronto ON M5K 1J5, Canada. The notice is attached as an exhibit.

Atlantica is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, including relevant government measures, and will continue to do so in the lead up to the AGM. In light of the current government measures in the UK, Spain and Canada on staying at home and away from others (social distancing) to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, and specifically the avoidance of gatherings and non-essential use of public transport, shareholders are advised not to attend the meeting in person this year if the measures continue to be the same or even more restrictive. As such, Atlantica's board of directors (“Board”) urges all shareholders to appoint a proxy as early as possible in order to vote on the matters being considered at the meeting. To facilitate attendance and voting by proxy holders, the AGM will be held at the three locations set out above, in the UK, Spain and Canada.

In this AGM Atlantica is seeking, among other things, approval for the re-election of some of its Board members. In accordance with Article 73.1 of Atlantica's Articles of Association, five members of the Board are required to retire at the AGM. Only four of the retiring Board members are standing for re-election by the shareholders at the AGM as Daniel Villalba has decided not to stand for re-election at the forthcoming AGM. The Board would like to thank Mr. Villalba for his contributions as Chairman of the Board, member of several Board Committees and independent director since the incorporation of Atlantica.
