  Re: Section 382 Rights Agreement

 

Dear Mr. Bawabeh,

 

Reference is made to that certain Section 382 Rights Agreement, dated as of April 6, 2016 (as it has been amended, the “Rights Agreement”), among Centrus Energy Corp. (the “Company”), Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (“Computershare”) and Computershare Inc. (together with Computershare, the “Rights Agent”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Rights Agreement.

 

The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) understands that you, alone or together with your Affiliates and Associates (including with any of your Affiliates or Associates acting alone), have requested the right to acquire up to 1,000,000 shares of the Class A Common Stock of the Company (such shares, the “Additional Shares” and such request, the “Exemption Request”). The Company understands that you, together with your Affiliates and Associates, currently beneficially own (as defined in the Rights Agreement) 1,621,776 shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company (the “Current Share Holdings”), which is equivalent to approximately 11.77% of the total outstanding Common Shares. If you, alone or together with your Affiliates and Associates (including with any of its Affiliates or Associates acting alone), acquire the Additional Shares, you, together with your Affiliates and Associates, will beneficially own approximately 19.02% of the total outstanding Common Shares.

 

Pursuant to the Rights Agreement and in accordance with the authority of the Board thereto, and conditioned upon your continuing compliance with the representations, undertakings and covenants contained herein, the Board has determined that the acquisition by you, alone or together with your Affiliates or Associates (including with any of your Affiliates or Associates acting alone) of up to, but not exceeding, the Additional Shares shall constitute an “Exempt Transaction” under the Rights Agreement and you, together with your Affiliates and Associates, shall not be deemed to be an Acquiring Person under the Rights Agreement solely by virtue of the acquisition of up to, but not exceeding, the Additional Shares (the “Exemption”). The Board has also determined that that any prior authorizations or determinations by the Board that allow you or any of your Affiliates or Associates to acquire additional shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company are revoked and that notwithstanding any other prior authorizations or determinations by the Board, you and your Affiliates and Associates, together, shall not have the right to acquire shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company in excess of the number of Additional Shares.

The Board has conditioned the Exemption on each of the following representations being true and correct at all times and in all respects and reserves its right to revoke the Exemption if any of the following representations shall not be true and correct at any time or in any respect: (a) (i) each of Mr. Morris Bawabeh and Ms. Dolly Bawabeh is a citizen of the United States of America and (ii) each of Kulayba LLC, Gates Equities and M&D Bawabeh Foundation, Inc., and any other entity that is an Affiliate or an Associate of Mr. Bawabeh that acquires any of the Additional Shares or otherwise owns any shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company, is an entity organized and in existence under the laws of a jurisdiction within the United States of America, (b) that neither you (including any of your Affiliates or Associates) nor any other person or entity that beneficially owns shares of Class A Stock held by you (including any of your Affiliates or Associates) is a “foreign person” as that term is defined in the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and (c) that, as of the date hereof, you, together with your Affiliates and Associates, do not own any shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company in excess of the Current Share Holdings.

 

The Board has further conditioned the Exemption on you complying with each of the following undertakings and covenants at all times and in all respects and reserves its right to revoke the Exemption if you fail to comply with any of the following undertakings and covenants at any time and in any respect: for so long as any of you own, of record or beneficially, 4.99% or more of the then outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company, neither you nor any of your Affiliates or Associates will, directly or indirectly, unless specifically invited in writing by the Board, acquire any more shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company in excess of the Additional Shares. Furthermore, the Board hereby retains the right to terminate or modify, pursuant to the Rights Agreement, the Exemption.

 

Nothing in this letter is intended or shall be construed to constitute an express or implied waiver of any rights or remedies which the Company or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries may possess in connection with this matter, all of which are hereby expressly reserved.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Dennis J. Scott, Esq., Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer & Corporate Secretary, at (301) 564-3352.

 

  Sincerely,
