THIS ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO CONTAIN INSIDE INFORMATION.

 

24 June 2020

 

 

SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc  

("SEEIT", or the "Company")  

 

Result of Placing and Offer for Subscription and Total Voting Rights  

 

The Board is pleased to announce that the Initial Issue of New Ordinary Shares (the "Initial Issue") announced on 18 June 2020 has received a strong level of support from investors.

Taking into account the Company's acquisition pipeline, the Board, after consultation with the Investment Manager and Jefferies International Limited, the bookrunner, has determined to increase the size of the Initial Issue from gross proceeds of £60 million to £110 million by re-allocating New Ordinary Shares available under the Share Issuance Programme to the Initial Issue.  Accordingly, the Initial Issue will result in the issue of 105,769,231 New Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price of 104 pence per share. The Investment Manager remains confident in its ability to efficiently apply the gross proceeds to its broad pipeline of investment opportunities and in addition the Company may partly pay down its existing debt facilities.

As applications for the New Ordinary Shares have exceeded the gross proceeds accepted, a scaling back exercise has taken place.

Tony Roper, Chairman of SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc said:

"In light of our offer being significantly oversubscribed and the Company's strong acquisition pipeline, we have increased the issue size. We are very grateful for the continued support from existing shareholders and are also pleased to welcome new investors to the Company. The growing interest in SEEIT substantiates our view that there has never been a more critical time for investment in energy efficiency, particularly given the twin challenges of Covid-19 and climate change. We have an advanced near-term investment pipeline consisting of projects that would help to further expand and diversify our portfolio and to deliver attractive returns for our shareholders."

 

Admission of New Ordinary Shares and Total Voting Rights

Applications have been made for all of the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to the Premium Listing segment of the Official List of the UK Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take effect, and dealings in the Placing Shares will commence, at 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 26 June 2020.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued in registered form and may be held in uncertificated form. The New Ordinary Shares allocated will be issued to Placees through the CREST system unless otherwise stated. The New Ordinary Shares will be eligible for settlement through CREST with effect from Admission. The New Ordinary Shares, when issued, will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue.

Immediately following Admission, the Company will have 426,143,739 ordinary shares in issue and therefore the total voting rights in the Company will be 426,143,739. This figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they may determine whether or not they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014. Upon the publication of this announcement, this inside information is now considered to be in the public domain. Unless otherwise defined, capitalised terms used in this announcement shall have the same meaning as set out in the Prospectus published on 19 June 2020.
