CERES POWER STATEMENT REGARDING WEICHAI

Ceres Power notes recent media commentary over a potential further equity investment by Weichai Power ("Weichai") to acquire an additional 10% stake in the business, taking its total holding to 20% and the creation of a manufacturing JV.  This follows the announcement of 16 May 2018 in which Ceres outlined the terms of a strategic collaboration between Ceres and Weichai which included both a Joint Development Agreement (JDA), technology transfer and equity investment and the right to nominate a non-executive director to the Board.  Ceres confirms discussions with Weichai are on-going and a further statement will be made in due course.
