for the adoption of a mandatory share exchange arrangement so that Dole plc can acquire the entire issued share capital of Total Produce plc in exchange for the issue of new shares in Dole plc

Sanction of the Scheme by the High Court

The Company's Board announces that the High Court of Ireland has today sanctioned the scheme of arrangement (the "Scheme") between the Company and the Total Produce Shareholders (as defined in the Scheme) under Chapter 1 of Part 9 of the Companies Act 2014 (the "Act") for the purpose of authorising the Board of the Company to implement a share exchange so that all shares in the Company can be exchanged for new shares in Dole plc on terms set out in the Scheme.

Holders of Total Produce Shares in certificated form who wish to convert their shares into uncertificated form in order to trade them on Euronext Growth or AIM will need to do so before 5.00pm (Irish time) on 23 July 2020 when the Company's share register will be closed until the share exchange.
