Renewable Energy Generation Limited (REG) is considering an issue zero dividend preference (ZDP) shares to augment its existing cash resources alongside non-recourse project finance.
The firm is proposing the following key indicative terms in relation to the ZDP shares:
REG will use the net proceeds of the issue to support the procurement and construction phases of projects within its wind portfolio. According to the company's Board, that obtaining additional finance through the issue of ZDP shares will allow the company to accelerate the delivery of projects under the Renewables Obligation and Feed-in Tariff regimes and hence maximise value for shareholders.
REG is an AIM quoted renewable energy group, its main business is the development, construction and operation of wind farms and generating power from refined used cooking oil.
