Proposed Placing of approximately 100 million New Shares under Share Issuance Programme to finance acquisition and attractive M&A pipeline in Ireland

04 March 2019 | Greencoat Renewables PLC ("Greencoat Renewables" or "the Company"), the renewable infrastructure company, invested in euro-denominated assets, is pleased to announce its intention to issue approximately 100 million new ordinary shares in the capital of the Company under the 250 million Share Issuance Programme launched on 9 July 2018, of which a balance of 140 million ordinary shares remains available for issue.

The shares will be issued through a Placing by way of a non pre-emptive issuance to institutional investors pursuant to the terms and conditions set out in the Appendix to this announcement.

In line with strategy, the proceeds of the Placing will be used to pay down the Company's existing Revolving Credit Facility, freeing up capital to take advantage of further value accretive acquisition opportunities in Ireland.

The secondary wind market in Ireland remains very active, with the company involved in a number of attractive processes totalling more than 250MW in aggregate capacity. This includes the potential acquisition of a high-quality operating asset already under exclusivity, with a headline enterprise value of EUR76m and an expected close at the end of March 2019.

Ronan Murphy, Non-Executive Chairman of Greencoat Renewables, said:

"Following our oversubscribed issuance in 2018 and given the continued aggregation opportunity that the Company sees in Ireland, we are pleased to announce a further placing in line with our growth strategy. We will continue to exercise price discipline in our acquisitions, only buying value-accretive assets that deliver value to shareholders and diversify the portfolio."

Summary of the Placing

-- Under the terms of the Placing, the Company intends to place approximately 100 million New Shares, under the Share Issuance Programme authority granted at the Company's extraordinary general meeting, held on 1 August 2018, at a Placing Price of EUR1.055 per Placing Share.

o The Placing Price of EUR1.055 represents a discount of 3.2% to the closing share price on 1 March 2019 and a premium of 2.0% to the last reported NAV of 103.4 cent per share (as at 31 December 2018)

o The Placing is expected to be accretive to the net asset value per share of the Company, after costs

-- All Placees who participate in the Placing will be required to make bids for Placing Shares at the Placing Price. The timing of the closing of the book, pricing and allocations are at the discretion of the Company, Davy and RBC Capital Markets.

EACH PLACEE SHOULD CONSULT WITH ITS OWN ADVISERS AS TO LEGAL, REGULATORY, TAX, BUSINESS AND RELATED ASPECTS OF AN ACQUISITION OF PLACING SHARES.

Details of the Placing Agreement and the Placing Shares

The Company has today entered into a placing agreement (the "Placing Agreement") with the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and the Investment Manager. Pursuant to the Placing Agreement, the Joint Bookrunners have severally agreed to use their respective reasonable endeavours to procure subscribers for the Placing Shares at the Placing Price on the Admission Date and the Co-Lead Manager has agreed to use its reasonable endeavours to procure subscribers domiciled in Germany or, with the prior consent of the Company and the Joint Bookrunners, elsewhere, for the Placing Shares at the Placing Price on the Admission Date (the "Placing").

The Placing Shares will, when issued be subject to the articles of association of the Company, be credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with each other and with the existing Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of the Ordinary Shares after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

The Placing Shares will be issued free of any encumbrance, lien or other security interest.

Application for listing and admission to trading

The Company will apply to Euronext Dublin and to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on Euronext Growth and AIM respectively ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective on or around 8.00 a.m. (Dublin/London time) on 22 March 2019, and that dealings in the Placing Shares will commence at that time.

Bookbuild

Commencing today, the Joint Bookrunners will be conducting a bookbuilding process (the "Bookbuilding Process") to determine demand for participation in the Placing by Placees. This announcement gives details of the terms and conditions of, and the mechanics of participation in, the Placing.

Participation in, and principal terms of, the Bookbuilding Process

Participation in the Placing will only be available to persons who may lawfully be, and are, invited to participate by the Joint Bookrunners (or either of them). The Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and their respective Affiliates are entitled to participate as Placees in the Bookbuilding Process.

The books will open with immediate effect. The Bookbuilding Process is expected to close not later than 12 noon (Dublin/London time) on 19 March 2019, but may be closed earlier at the discretion of the Joint Bookrunners. A further announcement will be made following the close of the Bookbuilding Process detailing the number of Placing Shares which are being placed (the "Placing Results Announcement"). The Joint Bookrunners may, in agreement with the Company, accept bids that are received after the Bookbuilding Process has closed.

A bid in the Bookbuilding Process will be made on the terms and conditions in this Announcement and will be legally binding on the Placee on behalf of which it is made and, except with the Joint Bookrunners' consent, will not be capable of variation or revocation after the close of the Bookbuilding Process.

A Placee who wishes to participate in the Bookbuilding Process should communicate its bid by telephone to the usual sales contact at Davy or RBC. Each bid should state the number of Placing Shares which the prospective Placee wishes to subscribe for at the Placing Price. If successful, the relevant Joint Bookrunner will re-contact and confirm orally to Placees following the close of the Bookbuilding Process the size of their respective allocations and a trade confirmation will be dispatched as soon as possible thereafter. The relevant Joint Bookrunner's oral confirmation of the size of allocations and each Placee's oral commitments to accept the same will constitute an irrevocable legally binding agreement upon such person (who will at that point become a Placee) in favour of the Company and such Joint Bookrunner pursuant to which each such Placee will be required to accept the number of Placing Shares allocated to the Placee at the Placing Price and otherwise on the terms and subject to the conditions set out herein and in accordance with the Company's articles of association. Each Placee's allocation and commitment will be evidenced by a trade confirmation issued to such Placee by the Joint Bookrunner. The terms of this Appendix will be deemed incorporated in that trade confirmation. Each such Placee will have an immediate, separate, irrevocable and binding obligation, owed to the relevant Joint Bookrunner, to pay it or (as it may direct) one of its Affiliates in cleared funds an amount equal to the product of the Placing Price and the number of Placing Shares allocated to such Placee. By participating in the Bookbuild, each Placee agrees that its rights and obligations in respect of the Placing will terminate only in the circumstances described below and will not be capable of rescission or termination by the Placee after confirmation (oral or otherwise) by a Joint Bookrunner.

The Joint Bookrunners reserve the right to scale back the number of Placing Shares to be subscribed by any Placee in the event of an oversubscription under the Placing. The Investment Manager also reserves the right not to accept offers to subscribe for Placing Shares or to accept such offers in part rather than in whole. The acceptance of offers shall be at the absolute discretion of the Joint Bookrunners. The Joint Bookrunners shall be entitled to effect the Placing by such alternative method to the Bookbuilding Process as they shall in their absolute discretion determine. The Company reserves the right (upon agreement with the Joint Bookrunners) to reduce or seek to increase the amount to be raised pursuant to the Placing.

To the fullest extent permissible by law, neither Joint Bookrunner, nor the Co-Lead Manager, nor any holding company thereof, any subsidiary thereof, any subsidiary of any such holding company, any branch, affiliate or associated undertaking of any such company nor any of their respective directors, officers and employees (each an "Affiliate") nor any person acting on their behalf shall have any liability to Placees (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise). In particular, neither Joint Bookrunner, nor any of their respective Affiliates nor any person acting on their behalf shall have any liability (including, to the extent legally permissible, any fiduciary duties), in respect of its conduct of the Bookbuilding Process or of such alternative method of effecting the Placing as the Joint Bookrunners and the Company may determine. No commissions will be paid to Placees or by Placees in respect of any Placing Shares.

Each Placee's obligations will be owed to the Company and to the relevant Joint Bookrunner or the Co-Lead Manager. Following the oral confirmation referred to above, each Placee will also have an immediate, separate, irrevocable and binding obligation, owed to the Company and the relevant Joint Bookrunner as agent of the Company, to pay to the relevant Joint Bookrunner (or as it may direct) in cleared funds an amount equal to the product of the Placing Price and the number of Placing Shares such Placee has agreed to acquire.

All obligations of the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager under the Placing Agreement will be subject to fulfilment of the conditions referred to below under "Conditions of the Placing".

Conditions of the Placing

The Placing is conditional upon the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not having been terminated in accordance with its terms.

The obligations of the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager under the Placing Agreement are conditional, inter alia, on:

1. none of the representations and warranties on the part of the Company and the Investment Manager contained in the Placing Agreement being untrue or inaccurate, in any material respect, or misleading on and as of the date of the Placing Agreement and at all times between the date of the Placing Agreement and Admission, as though they had been given and made by reference to the facts and circumstances then subsisting;

2. the performance by the Company and the Investment Manager of their respective obligations and undertakings under the Placing Agreement insofar as they fall to be performed prior to Admission; and

3. Admission occurring not later than 8.00 a.m. (Dublin/London time) on 22 March 2019 or such later time as the Company and the Joint Bookrunners may agree in writing (but in any event not later than 8.00 a.m. (Dublin/London time) on 29 March 2019).

If (a) any condition is not satisfied in all respects (or to the extent permitted under the Placing Agreement waived by the Joint Bookrunners on behalf of themselves and on behalf of the Co-Lead Manager), or (b) the Placing Agreement is terminated in the circumstances specified below, the Placing will lapse and each Placee's rights and obligations hereunder shall cease and determine at such time and no claim may be made by a Placee in respect thereof. None of the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager or the Company, nor any of their respective Affiliates shall have any liability to any Placee (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) in respect of any decision as to whether or not to waive or to extend the time and/or date for the satisfaction of any condition in the Placing Agreement or in respect of the Placing generally.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees that its rights and obligations hereunder terminate only in the circumstances described below under "Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement", and will not be capable of rescission or termination by the Placee.

Right to terminate under the Placing Agreement

The Joint Bookrunners may (on behalf of themselves and on behalf of the Co-Lead Manager), at any time before Admission, terminate the Placing Agreement by giving notice to the Company and the Investment Manager if, inter alia:

1. there has been a breach, by the Company or the Investment Manager, of any of the representations, warranties or undertakings in the Placing Agreement which, in the good faith opinion of either of the Joint Bookrunners, is material; or

2. it comes to the notice of the Joint Bookrunners that any statement contained in this Announcement, or any other document or announcement issued or published by or on behalf of the Company in connection with the Placing, is or has become untrue, incorrect or misleading and which, in the good faith opinion of either of the Joint Bookrunners, is material; or

3. in the reasonable opinion of either of the Joint Bookrunners there shall have been a material adverse change (whether or not foreseeable at the date of the Placing Agreement) in the condition (financial, operational, legal or otherwise) or in the trading position, earnings, management, business, solvency, or prospects of the Company, the Group or Investment Manager, whether or not arising in the ordinary course of business; or

4. there occurs, in the good faith opinion of either of the Joint Bookrunners, any material adverse change in the financial markets in the United States, the United Kingdom or in any member or associate member of the European Union or the international financial markets, any outbreak or escalation of hostilities, war, act of terrorism, declaration of emergency or martial law or other calamity or crisis or event or any change or development involving a prospective change in national or international political, financial, economic, monetary or market conditions or currency exchange rates or controls, the effect of which (either singly or together) is such as to make it in the good faith judgement of either of the Joint Bookrunners impracticable or inadvisable to market the Placing Shares or to enforce contracts for sale of or subscription for the Placing Shares, or which may prejudice the success of the Placing or dealings in Placing Shares in the secondary market.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees with the Joint Bookrunners that the exercise (or the refraining from exercise) by the Joint Bookrunners of any right of termination or other discretion under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of the Joint Bookrunners and that the Joint Bookrunners need not make any reference to the Placees in this regard and that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Joint Bookrunners shall have no liability whatsoever to the Placees in connection with any such exercise.

Lock-up

The Company has undertaken to the Joint Bookrunners that, between the date of the Placing Agreement and 180 days after Admission, it will not, without the prior written consent of the Joint Bookrunners enter into certain transactions involving or relating to the Ordinary Shares, subject to certain carve-outs agreed between the Joint Bookrunners and the Company.

By participating in the Placing, Placees agree that the exercise by the Joint Bookrunners of any power to grant consent to waive the undertaking by the Company of a transaction which would otherwise be subject to the lock-up under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of the Joint Bookrunners and that they need not make any reference to, or consultation with, Placees and that they shall have no liability to Placees whatsoever in connection with any such exercise of the power to grant consent.

No prospectus or admission document

No prospectus or admission document has been or will be prepared in relation to the Placing and no such prospectus or admission document is required (in accordance with the Directive 2003/71/EC as amended (the "Prospectus Directive") or the AIM Rules and Euronext Growth Rules respectively) to be published and Placees' commitments will be made solely on the basis of the information contained in this Announcement and any information previously published by or on behalf of the Company by notification to a Regulatory Information Service. Each Placee, by accepting a participation in the Placing, agrees that the content of this Announcement is exclusively the responsibility of the Company and confirms to the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and the Company that it has neither received nor relied on any information, representation, warranty or statement made by or on behalf of the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager (other than the amount of the relevant Placing participation in the oral confirmation given to Placees by the Joint Bookrunners (or either of them) and the trade confirmation referred to below), any of their respective Affiliates, nor any persons acting on their behalf or the Company and neither the Joint Bookrunners nor the Co-Lead Manager nor any of their respective Affiliates, any persons acting on their behalf, nor the Company will be liable for the decision of any Placee to participate in the Placing based on any other information, representation, warranty or statement which the Placee may have obtained or received (regardless of whether or not such information, representation, warranty or statement was given or made by or on behalf of any such persons). By participating in the Placing, each Placee acknowledges to and agrees with each Joint Bookrunner (for itself and as agent for the Company) and with the Co-Lead Manager (for itself and as agent for the Company) that, except in relation to the information contained in this Announcement, it has relied on its own investigation of the business, financial or other position of the Company in deciding to participate in the Placing. Nothing in this paragraph shall exclude the liability of any person for fraudulent misrepresentation.

Registration and settlement

Settlement of transactions in the Placing Shares (ISIN IE00BF2NR112) following Admission will take place within the CREST system, using the DVP mechanism, subject to certain exceptions. The Joint Bookrunners reserve the right to require settlement for and delivery of the Placing Shares to Placees by such other means that they deem necessary, if delivery or settlement is not possible or practicable within the CREST system within the timetable set out in this announcement or would not be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the Placee's jurisdiction.

Each Placee allocated Placing Shares in the Placing will be sent a trade confirmation stating the number of Placing Shares allocated to it, the Placing Price, the aggregate amount owed by such Placee and settlement instructions. Placees should settle against CREST ID: 189 for Davy, CREST ID: 388 for RBC and CREST ID: MIUAA for Commerzbank. It is expected that such trade confirmation will be despatched on 20 March 2019 and that this will also be the trade date. Each Placee agrees that it will do all things necessary to ensure that delivery and payment is completed in accordance with either the standing CREST or certificated settlement instructions which it has in place with the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager (as the case may be).

It is expected that settlement will be on 22 March 2019 on a DVP basis in accordance with the instructions set out in the trade confirmation unless otherwise notified by the Joint Bookrunners.

Interest is chargeable daily on payments not received from Placees on the due date in accordance with the arrangements set out above at the rate of two percentage points above the base rate of LIBOR as determined by the Joint Bookrunners.

Each Placee is deemed to agree that if it does not comply with these obligations, the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager may sell any or all of the Placing Shares allocated to the Placee on such Placee's behalf and retain from the proceeds, for the Joint Bookrunners' or the Co-Lead Manager's own account and profit, an amount equal to the aggregate amount owed by the Placee plus any interest due. The Placee will, however, remain liable for any shortfall below the aggregate amount owed by such Placee and it may be required to bear any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (together with any interest or penalties) which may arise upon the sale of such Placing Shares on such Placee's behalf.

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent, the Placee should ensure that the trade confirmation is copied and delivered immediately to the relevant person within that organisation.

Insofar as Placing Shares are registered in the Placee's name or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom the Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares will, subject as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax. If there are any circumstances in which any other stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax is payable in respect of the issue of the Placing Shares, none of the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and the Company shall be responsible for the payment thereof. Placees will not be entitled to receive any fee or commission in connection with the Placing.

Such agreement assumes that the Placing Shares are not being acquired in connection with arrangements to issue depositary receipts or to issue or transfer the Placing Shares into a clearance service. If there were any such arrangements, or the settlement related to other dealing in the Placing Shares, stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax may be payable, for which none of the Company, the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager will be responsible. If this is the case, the Placee should take its own advice and notify the Joint Bookrunners accordingly;

33. acknowledges that the Placing Shares will be issued and/or transferred subject to the terms and conditions set out in this Announcement (including this Appendix);

34. acknowledges that when a Placee or any person acting on behalf of the Placee is dealing with a Joint Bookrunner or the Co-Lead Manager, any money held in an account with such Joint Bookrunner or the Co-Lead Manager on behalf of the Placee and/or any person acting on behalf of the Placee will not be treated as client money within the meaning of the relevant rules and regulations of that Joint Bookrunner or the Co-Lead Manager. The Placee acknowledges that the money will not be subject to the protections conferred by the client money rules; as a consequence, this money will not be segregated from the Joint Bookrunner's money or the Co-Lead Manager's in accordance with the client money rules and will be used by the Joint Bookrunner or the Co-Lead Manager in the course of its business; and the Placee will rank only as a general creditor of the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager (as the case may be);

35. acknowledges and understands that the Company, the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and others will rely upon the truth and accuracy of the foregoing representations, warranties, agreements, undertakings and acknowledgements;

36. acknowledges that the basis of allocation will be determined by the Company and Joint Bookrunners at their absolute discretion. The right is reserved to reject in whole or in part and/or scale back any participation in the Placing;

37. irrevocably authorises the Company, the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager to produce this Announcement pursuant to, in connection with, or as maybe required by any applicable law or regulation, administrative or legal proceeding or official inquiry with respect to the matters set forth herein; and

38. that its commitment to subscribe for Placing Shares on the terms set out herein will continue notwithstanding any amendment that may in future be made to the terms of the Placing and that Placees will have no right to be consulted or require that their consent be obtained with respect to the Company's conduct of the Placing.

The acknowledgements, agreements, undertakings, representations and warranties referred to above are given to each of the Company, the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager (for their own benefit and, where relevant, the benefit of its Affiliates and any person acting on their behalf) and are irrevocable.

No claim shall be made against the Company, the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager or their respective Affiliates or any other person acting on behalf of any of such persons by a Placee to recover any damage, cost, charge or expense which it may suffer or incur by reason of or arising from the carrying out by it of the work to be done by it pursuant hereto or the performance of its obligations hereunder or otherwise in connection with the Placing.

The acknowledgements, agreements, undertakings, representations and warranties referred to above may be waived or modified in whole or in part in respect of any Placee with the prior agreement of the Company and the Joint Bookrunners.

No Irish or UK stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax should be payable to the extent that the Placing Shares are issued or transferred (as the case may be) into CREST to, or to the nominee of, a Placee who holds those shares beneficially (and not as agent or nominee for any other person) within the CREST system and registered in the name of such Placee or such Placee's nominee.

Any arrangements to issue or transfer the Placing Shares into a depositary receipts system or a clearance service or to hold the Placing Shares as agent or nominee of a person to whom a depositary receipt may be issued or who will hold the Placing Shares in a clearance service, or any arrangements subsequently to transfer the Placing Shares, may give rise to stamp duty and/or stamp duty reserve tax, for which none of the Company, the Joint Bookrunners or the Co-Lead Manager will be responsible and the Placee to whom (or on behalf of whom, or in respect of the person for whom it is participating in the Placing as an agent or nominee) the allocation, allotment, issue or delivery of Placing Shares has given rise to such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax undertakes to pay such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax forthwith and to indemnify on an after-tax basis and to hold harmless the Company, the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager in the event that any of the Company, the Joint Bookrunners and/or the Co-Lead Manager have incurred any such liability to stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax.

In addition, Placees should note that they will be liable for any capital duty, stamp duty and all other stamp, issue, securities, transfer, registration, documentary or other duties or taxes (including any interest, fines or penalties relating thereto) payable outside Ireland and the UK by them or any other person on the acquisition by them of any Placing Shares or the agreement by them to acquire any Placing Shares.

All times and dates in this Announcement may be subject to amendment. The Joint Bookrunners shall notify the Placees and any person acting on behalf of the Placees of any such changes.

This Announcement has been issued by the Company and is the sole responsibility of the Company.

Each Placee, and any person acting on behalf of the Placee, acknowledges that the Joint Bookrunners and the Co-Lead Manager do not owe any fiduciary or other duties to any Placee in respect of any representations, warranties, undertakings or indemnities in the Placing Agreement.

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of the Placee acknowledges and agrees that the Joint Bookrunners, Co-Lead Manager or any of their respective Affiliates may, at their absolute discretion, agree to become a Placee in respect of some or all of the Placing Shares.

The rights and remedies of the Joint Bookrunners, the Co-Lead Manager and the Company under these terms and conditions are in addition to any rights and remedies which would otherwise be available to each of them and the exercise or partial exercise or partial exercise of one will not prevent the exercise of others.

Each Placee may be asked to disclose in writing or orally to the Joint Bookrunners:

   (a)     if he is an individual, his nationality; or 

(b) if he is a discretionary fund manager, the jurisdiction in which the funds are managed or owned.
