Companhia Paranaense de Energia - COPEL, a company that generates, transmits, distributes and trades energy, with shares listed on B3 (CPLE3, CPLE5, CPLE6), NYSE (ELPVY, ELP) and LATIBEX (XCOP), communicates to its shareholders and to the market in general that, pursuant to Article 21-L, § 2, of CVM Instruction No. 481/2009, as amended, at a meeting held on January 20, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors approved the implementation of the system of book-entry shares and, therefore, the hiring of Banco Bradesco SA (“Banco Bradesco”) as the bookkeeping bank for its shares and, if the UNIT Program is approved, as the issuing agent of UNITs.

Thus, as of February 8, 2021, service to the holders of shares will be carried out by Bradesco's branch network, present throughout the national territory.

Shareholders with shares in custody at B3 will continue to be served, normally, by their respective securities brokers and / or custody agents, with no interruption in the trading of the Company's shares.

Due to the migration process, there will be a suspension of service to shareholders from February 1st to 5th, 2021, in the following procedures:

1.position consultations;
2.transfer of shares outside the stock exchange;
3.custody transfer;
4.payments for any pending events;
5.registration update; and
6.registration of liens, among others.

Regarding stock transfer orders (custody movement) whose block has been made by COPEL, without the respective deposit having taken place, COPEL will transfer the blocks to Bradesco and these will remain valid until the respective expiration date.

It is worth mentioning that this change will not imply any change in the rights conferred on the shares, including dividends, eventual capital remuneration and eventual payments will be made in the same checking account previously indicated by each shareholder.
