*****

10 September 2015

Volta Finance Limited ("Volta" or "the Company") today announces that Jim
Gilligan, Chairman of the Company, has notified the Board of his intention to
step down from the Board at the Company's forthcoming AGM.

The Company, through its Nominations Committee, has previously engaged in
succession planning and the other Board members have come to the view that
Paul Meader, current Senior Independent Director of the Company, has the
qualities, expertise and relevant experience required to take over as
Chairman. Mr Meader has agreed to succeed Mr Gilligan as Chairman and,
accordingly, the Board will be proposing at the AGM that Paul Meader takes
over as Chairman of Volta from that date and Mr Meader will be putting
himself forward for re-election by shareholders.

Mr Gilligan comments as follows "I have greatly enjoyed my 5 years as Volta
Chairman. However, as I am in my 65thyear with a daughter and new
granddaughter in Australia, I have decided to cut back on my Non-Executive
roles. I am pleased to note that my Board colleagues have recognised the
strong contribution and expertise demonstrated by Paul Meader since he joined
the Board in May last year and would fully endorse their decision to nominate
Paul Meader as the new Chairman."

The Board has agreed that Paul Varotsis will succeed Mr Meader in the role of
Senior Independent Director.

The Company, through its Nominations Committee, has commenced a selection and
interview process to appoint a new independent non-executive director to
maintain the board composition at five independent directors once Mr Gilligan
has resigned. On successful completion of this process the Company will make
the appropriate announcement of the new appointee.
