CABLEVISION HOLDING S.A.

Cablevisión Holding Amends Proposal;

Calls Annual Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting

 

On 18 March 2019, Cablevisión Holding S.A. (the "Company") informed the Argentine Securities Commission and the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange that the Company's Board of Directors had held a meeting on that date, at which they resolved:

 

(A) to amend the proposal made by the Board of Directors in the Annual Report corresponding to the fiscal year ended on 31 December 2019 so that it reads as follows: "(a) that the Company absorb in full the loss yielded by the financial statements of the Company as of 31 December 2019 by the partial reversal of the Optional Reserve for Illiquid Results; and (b) to fully reverse the Optional Reserve for Financial Obligations, created in due course, which as of 31 December 2019 is of Ps. 18,460 and to allocate:

 

i)          Ps. 150,602 to increase the Legal Reserve, which will thus reach 20% of the capital stock plus the balance of the capital adjustment account;

ii)         an amount equivalent to USD 12 million at the reference exchange rate of communication 3500 of the Argentine Central Bank at the close of the day on which the Annual Shareholders' Meeting of the Company is held, to the payment of a dividend in freely disposable United States Dollars, given that the Company has a level of cash and cash equivalents in freely disposable dollars that would allow it to satisfy the proposed distribution and face its needs for operating funds and,

iii)        considering the negative result yielded by its main subsidiary Telecom Argentina S.A. and the fact that the Company is a holding company, whose level of liquidity depends mainly on the distribution of dividends by the companies in which it participates-which companies must attend their own investment needs and payments of indebtedness-imposing a position of prudence in its management, the Board considered it reasonable to propose to the Shareholders an increase in the Optional Reserve for Illiquid Results for the balance, so to preserve a reasonable level of reserves that would allow the Company to face future needs for funds."

 

(B)  to call the Company's Annual Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting for 29 April 2020 at 17.00 on first call and only for agenda of the Annual Ordinary Shareholders' Meeting for 7 May 2020 at 17.00 on second call, at Calle Piedras 1743 (not the Company's headquarters), City of Buenos Aires.  The Meeting's agenda will be the following:

5) Authorisation to the Board of Directors to pay advances on compensation to directors that perform technical administrative functions and/or independent directors and/or directors who exercise special commissions for fiscal year 2020, subject to the decision of the shareholders at the next Shareholders' Meeting at which compensation of the members of the Board of Directors is considered.
