Gruenwald, August 30, 2022 – Yesterday, Pacifico Renewables Yield AG held its annual general meeting.
The annual general meeting approved a revised corporate purpose, reflecting the recently announced three strategic initiatives. This allows the company to further evolve from a renewables native into the energy transition investment company of tomorrow.
Rebranding to Tion Renewables AG
The annual general meeting also approved a name change, to highlight the company’s extended business model. Pacifico Renewables Yield AG will become Tion Renewables AG (www.tion-renewables.com). Pacifico Energy Partners GmbH will retain the previously shared brand as a renewable energy project developer.
Supervisory board further develops along the strategic development
In parallel to the strategic development, the Supervisory Board’s composition is developing further. With Victor Moftakhar, a new ordinary member with a wealth of experience in the investment and fund industry was elected. He replaces David Neuhoff who had already resigned from the chairman position recently with Dr. Bettina Mittermeier taking the position as chairwoman and further resigned from his ordinary seat as of the general meeting. Victor Moftakhar worked in leading positions in the investment industry for more than twenty years, including as chief investment officer and CEO of Deka Investment GmbH and as a board member of the German Nuclear Waste Management Fund. He will play a crucial role in supporting the company in evaluating and implementing new capital solutions as one of three strategic initiatives to expand the company’s strategy.
Dr. Bettina Mittermeier, new Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board:
“I feel honored to have taken over the chair of the supervisory board and I am very happy to welcome Victor Moftakhar into the supervisory board. We are looking forward to further supporting Pacifico’s successful growth story with this new set-up. Victor’s expertise and knowledge of the investment fund industry will significantly support the company in pursuing the recently announced capital solutions. I would also like to take this opportunity to express special thanks to David Neuhoff, who is resigning as of today. As chairman of the supervisory board, he played a key role in shaping the company’s success through his entrepreneurial expertise.”
New authorized capital allows for flexible growth financing
The annual general meeting also resolved to create a new authorized capital 2022 and conditional capital 2022, which enables the company to raise up to 50% of the existing share capital in new shares under each authorization.
The entire annual general meeting was broadcast live on the internet. Shareholders were able to submit questions via the internet, all of which were answered at the meeting. In total, 79.7% of the voting share capital were represented.
