- €9.8 million raised via an accelerated bookbuilding (“ABB”)
- Debut ABB successfully placed backed by strategic anchor shareholder
- Net proceeds enable the further expansion of the Company’s portfolio and temporary refinancing of the Company’s existing revolving credit facility
Gruenwald, November 11, 2021 – Yesterday, Pacifico Renewables Yield AG (ISIN: DE000A2YN371) (the “Company”), an independent producer of electricity from renewable sources, successfully implemented an accelerated bookbuilding in a private placement to raise total gross proceeds of €9.8 million.
338,276 new shares issued at €29.00 per share
The management board of the Company, with the consent of the supervisory board, resolved to increase the share capital of the Company from €3,382,766.00 by a total of €338,276.00 to €3,721,042 by issuing 338,276 new shares from the authorized capital 2021 under the exclusion of subscription rights. The placement price was set at €29.00 per share. The Company’s majority shareholder Pelion Green Future Alpha GmbH underlined its role as strategic anchor shareholder by backing the capital increase with €6.0 million. The registration of the capital increase in the commercial register and the inclusion of the new shares in the existing listing on the open market (primary market) of the Duesseldorf Stock Exchange is expected shortly.
Closing of landmark acquisition enabled
The capital increase enables the Company to finance the portion of the purchase price payable at closing for the previously announced acquisition of three Polish wind parks with a total capacity of 51.8 MW and to temporarily refinance the Company’s existing revolving credit facility.
Dr. Martin Siddiqui, Co-CEO: “Our ABB debut demonstrated our ability to raise capital efficiently. This was our third capital increase against cash contributions since listing which further expanded our free float and which we expect will increase liquidity of the stock. We are extremely proud that we will have grown our portfolio by roughly 100 MW year-to-date once all signed transactions are closed. This demonstrates our ability to grow continuously. We financed these transactions through a wide variety of instruments such as our revolving credit facility, existing liquidity, a contribution in kind and this capital increase. This showcases our commitment to finance our growth in an efficient and targeted manner.”
Berenberg acted as Sole Global Coordinator and Joint Bookrunner and Stifel acted as additional Joint Bookrunner.
