Investment Advisory Agreement


Impax Asset Management Group plc (the "Company") is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Impax Asset Management Ireland Limited ("IAMI"), has entered into an investment advisory agreement with BNP Paribas Asset Management France ("BNPP AM France"), a subsidiary of BNP Paribas Asset Management Holding ("BNPP"), whereby IAMI will provide investment advisory services to BNPP AM France in relation to two investment funds. This is as part of the ongoing distribution arrangement between the Company and BNPP in a number of international markets. The investment advisory agreement provides inter alia for BNPP AM France to pay a fee to IAMI for this service (the "Transaction"). The fees payable by BNPP AM France to IAMI, to be paid quarterly, shall be calculated as a percentage of the assets under management.

BNPP AM France is an affiliate of BNPP. As BNPP is a substantial shareholder of the Company, as defined under the AIM Rules, and BNPP AM France is an associate of BNPP, as defined under the AIM Rules, the entry into this agreement constitutes a related party transaction under Rule 13 of the AIM Rules.

The independent directors of the Company, having consulted with Peel Hunt LLP in its capacity as the Company's nominated adviser for the purposes of the AIM Rules, consider the terms of the transaction to be fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

Independent directors in relation to the matter are all the directors of the Company except Arnaud de Servigny who is not considered independent because of his role as non-executive director at BNPP AM France.

About Impax

Founded in 1998, Impax is a specialist asset manager, with approximately £39.4 billion as of 30 April 2023 in both listed and private markets strategies, investing in the opportunities arising from the transition to a more sustainable global economy.

Impax believes that capital markets will be shaped profoundly by global sustainability challenges, including climate change, pollution and essential investments in human capital, infrastructure and resource efficiency. These trends will drive growth for well-positioned companies and create risks for those unable or unwilling to adapt.

The company seeks to invest in higher quality companies with strong business models that demonstrate sound management of risk. Impax offers a well-rounded suite of investment solutions spanning multiple asset classes seeking superior risk-adjusted returns over the medium to long term.

Impax has approximately 290 employees across its offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Ireland, Hong Kong and Japan, making it one of the investment management sector's largest investment teams dedicated to sustainable development.
