Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.
On November 16, 2020, the shareholders of IPALCO Enterprises, Inc. (“IPALCO” or the “Corporation”), through a unanimous written consent electing the Corporation’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), appointed Susan Harcourt and Kristina Lund to the Board. Sanjeev Addala, Barry J. Bentley, Paul L. Freedman, Lisa Krueger, Frederic Lesage, Fady Mansour, Marc Michael, Gustavo Pimenta and Kenneth J. Zagzebski continue also as members of the Board.
Members of the Board are nominated and elected in accordance with the terms of a Shareholders’ Agreement dated February 11, 2015 (the “Shareholders’ Agreement”) by and among IPALCO and its shareholders, CDP Infrastructures Fund G.P. (“CDPQ”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, and AES U.S. Investments, Inc. (“AES”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The AES Corporation, and CDPQ. Pursuant to the Shareholders’ Agreement, AES and CDPQ have rights to nominate directors to the Board. Mr. Lesage and Mr. Mansour are Board members that were nominated by CDPQ and the remainder of the Board members were nominated by AES.
The Corporation does not separately compensate individuals for their service as Board members of the Corporation.
