The Renewables Infrastructure Group Limited – Result of Initial Issue

4 April 2019 Corporate
Further to its announcement on 27 April 2016 with regard to the publication of the Prospectus in connection with the Share Issuance Programme, the Board of The Renewables Infrastructure Group Limited (the “Company“) announces that the Company has raised gross proceeds of £30.3 million through the issue of 30,000,000 New Ordinary Shares at an Issue Price of 101p each pursuant to the terms of the initial issue (the “Initial Issue“).

Applications were received in respect of 3,161,896 New Ordinary Shares under the Initial Offer for Subscription and 26,838,104 New Ordinary Shares were applied for under the Initial Placing.

The net proceeds from the Initial Issue will be applied towards paying down amounts drawn under the Group’s revolving acquisition facility. Thereafter, the Group will have approximately £136 million available to be drawn under this facility together with a balance of 270 million New Ordinary Shares (or C Shares) available for issuance under the Share Issuance Programme which is in place until 26 April 2017. This puts the Company in a good position to take advantage of the strong pipeline of attractive investment opportunities currently under consideration by the Investment Manager and the Operations Manager.

The New Ordinary Shares will, when issued, rank pari passu with the Company’s existing ordinary shares, and will be entitled to receive the interim dividend of 1.5625p per share declared on 5 May 2016 and payable on 30 June 2016. The Initial Issue is expected to be net asset value accretive for existing shareholders (net of fees and expenses associated with the Initial Issue).

Application has been made for all of the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the FCA and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities. Admission is expected to take place on 19 May 2016.
