Under the Initial Open Offer, totalling up to £171.4m if fully subscribed, qualifying shareholders are entitled to subscribe on the basis of 1 new ordinary share for every 2 ordinary shares registered in their name as at close of business on 7 June 2022.

In-line with its stated dividend policy, the company is targeting an interim dividend in respect of the quarter ended 30 June 2022 of 1.25p. Holders of new ordinary shares will be entitled to receive the Q2 dividend.

The pipeline assets

Onshore wind – Mexico

This investment is a portfolio of three operating wind farms totalling approximately 153MW, valued at £70.8m. The portfolio benefits from a 100 per cent. take-or-pay corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) with a listed retail conglomerate in Mexico. These assets have been managed and operated by a leading European contractor using top-tier European wind turbine generators. This project targets a yield greater than 12% in local currency.

Operating hydro power plant – Brazil

This project consists of an operational hydro plant with capacity of approximately 198MW, currently owned by a large European utility. The asset has a 25-year concession in place and a combination of long-term PPAs and a rolling 5-year hedge strategy for price of power earned that provides downside risk protection and attractive upside exposure. The expected investment is £129.2m and the project targets a yield of approximately 10%.

Flexible power and carbon capture and reuse – United Kingdom

This would be the company’s third combined heat and power project in the UK with carbon capture and reuse technology. The £80m project will be 31MW once construction is complete and targets a yield of 9%. The investment adviser will be working with the same operating partners on this project under the partnership framework and structure already put in place as part of the first two projects.
