With the filing of this Notice, the PAB and its advisors believe they have completed the process of comprehensively reviewing and reconciling the Claims with the PAB’s books and records to determine the validity of the Claims asserted against the EFH Debtors and EFIH Debtors.

In connection with its review of its books and records, the PAB has identified 64 Claims, as set forth in Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C attached hereto, i.e. the Satisfied Claims.

contained in Exhibit B have been satisfied pursuant to treatment prescribed in the EFH/EFIH Plan and the Merger Agreement. The Satisfied Claims contained in Exhibit C have received treatment and distributions pursuant to the EFH/EFIH Plan. At this time, the PAB does not anticipate any further distribution of funds, and thus has included such claims on Exhibit C to reconcile such claims in anticipation of closing these chapter 11 cases—nothing herein shall prejudice such claimant’s rights to receive additional consideration pursuant to the terms of the EFH/EFIH Plan on account of such claims in the event that the PAB does not make any further distribution. The Satisfied Claims contained in Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C consist of claims entirely against the EFH/EFIH Debtors. As discussed above, the TCEH cases have been closed and all claims have been fully resolved. 10. Accordingly, the PAB intends to designate on the Claims Register the Satisfied Claims listed on Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C as being satisfied in full.5 Out of an abundance of caution, the PAB will serve this Notice on all holders of the Satisfied Claims to provide them with an opportunity to interpose an objection, if any, to the PAB’s determination that such Claims have been fully satisfied pursuant to the terms of this Notice. With this Notice, the PAB has served approximately 64 claims and provided custom and individualized notice to the claimants. Responses to the Notice 11. By this Notice, the PAB requests that any holder of the Satisfied Claims who dispute the PAB’s determination that the Claims have been satisfied or released file a written response (the “Response”) with the Office of the Clerk of the United States Bankruptcy Court for 5 As noted on Exhibit C, nothing herein shall prejudice such claimants’ rights to receive additional consideration pursuant to the terms of the EFH/EFIH Plan on account of such claims in the event that the PAB does make any further distribution.

the District of Delaware (the “Clerk”), 824 North Market Street, 3rd Floor, Wilmington, Delaware 19801. In addition, such Claimant must serve its Response upon the following entities, so that the Response is received no later than November 12, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) (the “Response Deadline”): (a) Kirkland & Ellis LLP, 601 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022, Attn: Aparna Yenamandra and Patrick Venter; (b) Kirkland & Ellis LLP, 300 North LaSalle, Chicago, IL 60654, Attn: Chad J. Husnick, P.C.; and (c) Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., One Rodney Square, 920 North King Street, Wilmington, DE 19801, Attn: Jason M. Madron. 12. Every Response must contain, at a minimum, the following information: a. a caption setting forth the name of this Court, the name of the Debtors, the case number, and the title of this Notice; b. the name of the Claimant, the number of his/her/its Satisfied Claim, and a description of the basis for the amount of the Satisfied Claim that the Claimant is contesting has not been satisfied; c. the specific factual basis, supporting legal argument and any supporting documentation, to the extent such documentation was not included with the Satisfied Claim previously filed with the Clerk or Epiq, upon which the Claimant will rely in opposing this Notice and the PAB’s determinations set forth therein; and d. the name, address, telephone number, electronic mail address, and fax number of the person(s) (which may be the Claimant or its legal representative) with whom counsel for the PAB should communicate with respect to the Satisfied Claim or the Notice and who possesses authority to reconcile, settle, or otherwise resolve any issues relating to the Satisfied Claim on behalf of the Claimant. 13. Upon the PAB’s receipt of a Response, the PAB will then make a good faith effort to review the Satisfied Claim in light of such Response, to determine whether there is a basis upon which to sustain the Claimant’s assertion that its Claim in fact is not a Satisfied Claim. In the event the parties are unable to reach a resolution, the PAB will schedule a hearing on the Satisfied Claim. The PAB reserves the right to contest any new assertions of liability against the PAB made by the holders of the Satisfied Claim with respect to their Claim.

If a Claimant fails to file and serve a timely Response by the Response Deadline, (i) the Claimant is deemed to have consented to the Notice (pursuant to its terms) and the PAB’s determinations with respect to the Satisfied Claim, as set forth therein, and (ii) Epiq shall immediately, and without further notice to any party (including the Claimant), mark the Satisfied Claim as fully satisfied on the Claims Register. Reservation of Rights 15. The PAB expressly reserves the right to (a) amend, modify or supplement this Notice, and (b) file additional objections to any claims in these chapter 11 cases, including, without limitation, objections to the Satisfied Claims, or any other claims (filed or not) that have been or may be asserted against the Debtors’ Estates. 16. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Notice or the attached exhibit, nothing herein shall be construed as a waiver of any rights that the PAB may have: (a) to bring avoidance actions under the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code against the holder of any disputed claim, or (b) to exercise their rights of setoff against the holders of such claims relating to such avoidance actions.
