Downing Renewables & Infrastructure Trust is aiming to raise £50m through an issue of up to 45,669,495 new ordinary shares at 111p per share, and to establish a 12-month share issuance programme to issue up to 250m ordinary shares (less the number issued under this initial issue). Shareholders need to approve these plans.

This includes c.£200m of near-term opportunities in hydropower, wind and solar assets in the UK, Sweden and Finland.
DORE managers Tom Williams, Tom Moore and Henrik Dahlstrom will discuss DORE’s performance to date, why now is the right time for a capital raise and the exciting pipeline of opportunities for DORE.
