Bluefield Solar Income Fund Limited

("Bluefield Solar" or the "Company")

Result of Placing

Further to the announcement dated 16 November 2020 the Board of Bluefield Solar Income Fund Limited (the "Company") is pleased to announce the successful placing of new ordinary shares.

A total of 36,500,000 new ordinary shares (the "Placing Shares") have been placed, subject to Admission and on the other terms and conditions set out in the Appendix to the announcement made on 16 November 2020, by Numis Securities Limited ("Numis") at a price of 124p per share, raising gross proceeds of approximately GBP45 million. The Placing Shares represent approximately 9.99% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company prior to the Placing.

The Placing was over-subscribed and accordingly it has been necessary to scale back applications. However, the Company took into account applications for Placing Shares from existing shareholders with a view to giving these priority over other investors, where applicable, and allocating to existing shareholders such number of Placing Shares to enable them to retain their existing percentage holding of Ordinary Shares in the issued share capital Company following the issue of Placing Shares.

All Placing Shares issued pursuant to the Placing will, when issued and fully paid, confer the right to receive all dividends or other distributions made, paid or declared, if any, by reference to a record date after the date of their issue.

Application has been made for the Placing Shares to be admitted to the premium segment of the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") and to trading on the main market for listed securities of the London Stock Exchange (together, "Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00am on 24 November 2020 (or such later date as may be agreed between the Company and Numis).

Following Admission, the number of ordinary shares that the Company has in issue will be 406,999,622. The total number of voting rights of the Company will be 406,999,622 and this figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company, under the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

John Rennocks, Chairman of the Company, commented "We are delighted with the success of this significantly oversubscribed placing, the first fundraise undertaken by Bluefield Solar since we broadened the investment mandate earlier this year. It places the Company in a strong position to continue with its growth plans in 2021 and we thank our shareholders for their support."

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement have the same meanings as set out in the placing announcement of the Company released at 7.00am on 16 November 2020.
