The Series 2012-A Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $8.50 per share, and dividend rights that are senior to distributions on the common stock, in an annual amount of $0.6375 per share, plus the potential for an increase in the dividend related to the performance of Genie’s retail energy provider (REP) business.

In connection with the prior exchange offer, the Company suspended payment of dividends on its Class A and Class B Common Stock.
