(g)          In the event that the aggregate gross proceeds that would be received by the Issuer from the sale of all Option Securities that the underwriters of the Offerings have the
option to purchase would be less than $522,727,273 (assuming that such option is exercised in full) (such difference, the “Excess Amount”), then the Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount will be adjusted by

(a)          If, at any time and from time to time on or prior to the Outside Date, the underwriters of either Offering exercise their option to purchase all or a portion of the

return a portion of the Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount equal to (i) the Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amount divided by the Aggregate Greenshoe Backstop Purchase Amounts multiplied

by (ii) the gross proceeds received by the Issuer from the sale of such Option Securities (such product, the “Redemption Amount).  Any Redemption Amount shall

(each such date, a “Mandatory Redemption Settlement Date”), by wire transfer only of immediately available funds to the account designated by the Purchaser and set forth in Section 1(f).

(b)          In the event that the Issuer effects a cash dividend, distribution, stock split (including a reverse stock split) or stock dividend after the Effective Date and prior to
the Settlement Date, the Settlement Rate shall be equitably adjusted to reflect such dividend, distribution or stock split.

(c)          From and after the Effective Date and prior to the Settlement Date, the Issuer shall not consummate any exchange offer or issuer tender for common stock or merge or
consolidate with any other entity or effect any reclassification of New HoldCo Common Stock.

consent or to receive notice as shareholders in respect of the meetings of shareholders or for the election of directors of the Issuer or for any other matter, or any other rights whatsoever as shareholders of the Issuer, except to the extent
otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement.

prior to the Effective Date or the Settlement Date in the case of the representation in Section 4(i) (or such other date as expressly set forth therein)) of such fact to the Issuer, specifying which such representations and warranties are not true
and the reasons therefor.

(b)          The Purchaser shall not offer, sell, assign or otherwise transfer any portion of the Greenshoe Backstop Commitment or any Greenshoe Backstop Shares except in accordance

June 9, 2020) at all times, it shall abide by the Issuer Charter Documents in all respects, including the restrictions on transfer included therein.

(c)          As reasonably requested in writing by the Debtors, the Purchaser shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide information to the Debtors relevant to the
preservation of the Debtors’ tax attributes, including the ownership of shares acquired hereunder; provided, that for the avoidance of doubt, the Purchaser shall have no obligation pursuant to this Section 6(c) to provide any such information
that the Purchaser determines, in its reasonable judgment, it is legally or contractually prohibited or restricted from disclosing.  The Debtors and the Issuer shall treat confidentially all such information provided by the Purchaser contained in or
pursuant to this Agreement for a period of three years; provided, however, that nothing in the foregoing shall prevent the Debtors or the Issuer from disclosing any such information (i) to the extent the Debtors or the Issuer are
required pursuant to an order of any court or administrative agency or in any legal, judicial or administrative proceeding or other compulsory process or otherwise as required by applicable law or regulations, (ii) to any regulatory or governmental
authority or agency having jurisdiction over the Debtor or the Issuer, (iii) to the directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives and advisors (including attorneys and accountants) (collectively, including those of affiliates, and in each
case, only those who receive confidential information, “Related Parties”) of the Debtors or the Issuer so long as the Debtors or Issuer instruct their Related Parties to treat the information in a confidential
manner and in accordance with the terms hereof (it being understood that the Debtors and the Issuer will be responsible for any breach of any provisions of this Agreement, which by their terms apply to the Debtors’ and Issuer’s Related Parties, by
any of the Debtors’ or the Issuer’s Related Parties) and (iv) to the extent any such information becomes publicly available other than by reason of disclosure by the Debtors or the Issuer or any of its Related Parties in breach of this Agreement.

(d)          To the extent permitted under applicable law, from and after the earlier of (i) the request of the Purchaser following the date that is six months after the Settlement
Date and upon delivery of a certificate from the Purchaser to the Issuer certifying that the Purchaser has held the Greenshoe Backstop Shares for the requisite holding period under Rule 144(d) and (ii) the delivery of an opinion of the Issuer’s
counsel as to the effectiveness of the registration statement (which the Issuer shall cause to be delivered to the Issuer’s transfer agent upon effectiveness of such registration statement if reasonably requested by the Issuer’s transfer agent), the
Issuer shall take such actions as may be reasonably requested by the Issuer’s transfer agent so that the Purchaser may sell any of its Greenshoe Backstop Shares without any legend pursuant to Rule 144 (as long as the Purchaser is not an affiliate (as
defined in Rule 144) of the Issuer) or such registration statement, as the case may be, and the Issuer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the transfer agent to take all such actions as may be required to allow for the transfer of such
Greenshoe Backstop Shares, including removing all legends from such Greenshoe Backstop Shares, at which time such Greenshoe Backstop Shares will have the same CUSIP as the unrestricted shares of PG&E Corporation common stock.  Notwithstanding the
removal of any such legends or the addition of the unrestricted CUSIP, until the date that is six months after the Settlement Date, the Purchaser agrees (A) to comply with the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement and (B) that the Greenshoe
Backstop Shares may not be sold or transferred in the absence of an effective registration statement under the Act or an available exemption from registration thereunder.

Issuer will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the transfer agent to, deliver the Greenshoe Backstop Shares to the Purchaser’s DTC Participant Account.

(f)          To the extent the Issuer agrees with any Other Backstop Party to any terms in respect of the Greenshoe Backstop Shares and/or Additional Backstop Premium Shares that are
more favorable to such Other Backstop Party than the terms set forth in this Agreement, whether by modification to this Agreement, by a separate or side agreement or otherwise, the Issuer shall promptly provide notice of such terms to the Purchaser,
and such terms shall be deemed without further action to be incorporated into this Agreement for the Purchaser, except to the extent the Purchaser objects to such incorporation in writing.
