   Gresham House Renewable Energy VCT 2 plc ("the Company") 
   LEI: 213800GQ3JQE2M214C75 
   25 June 2019 
   Gresham House Renewable Energy VCT 1 and 2 announce successful exit for 
ChargePoint Services via trade sale to Engie 
   London, 25 June 2019 - The Boards of Gresham House Renewable Energy VCT 
1 plc and Gresham House Renewable Energy VCT 2 plc (the Gresham House 
VCTs or the VCTs) are very pleased to report that their investments in 
ChargePoint Services Ltd (CPS) have been acquired by Engie as part of 
the French utility's buyout of 100% of CPS. The exit will generate a 
total rate of return to shareholders of 11.9% per year based on the 
initial purchase consideration, rising to 13.2% per year if all future 
tranches of the purchase consideration, linked to CPS' future 
performance, are received. 
   The Gresham House VCTs invested GBP1 million (GBP0.5 million per VCT) in 
CPS in 2016 in the form of equity and a senior, secured debt instrument. 
CPS is a provider of integrated electric vehicle charging solutions in 
the UK which uses proprietary and best of breed end-to-end technology 
for public, workplace and private sector electric vehicle (EV) charging. 
   Engie is the second-largest provider of EV charging stations around the 
world. Through this deal Engie will add ChargePoint Service's 900 public 
and workplace EV charge points, as well as its 20,000-strong customer 
base and cloud-based data and control platform. 
   Following the VCTs two top-ups last year, the Gresham House investment 
team is actively looking for new opportunities to put capital to work, 
in companies in the clean technology space and seeking to help the UK's 
transition to becoming a low-carbon economy. 
   Bozkurt Aydinoglu, Investment Director at Gresham House and co-manager 
of the VCTs stated; "CPS successfully capitalised on the need in the UK 
for a roll-out of EV charging points in suitable locations, by forging 
partnerships with site owners and delivering a fast turnkey EV charging 
solution. We are delighted that the VCTs' first investment in this space, 
has delivered a strong risk-adjusted return for shareholders." 
   The Gresham House VCTs were launched by Gresham House New Energy 
(formerly Hazel Capital LLP) in 2010. GBP41.6m was raised between 2010 
and 2011 representing the most successful ever launch by a new entrant 
to the VCT market. The Gresham House VCTs are ranked best in class' when 
compared to all other VCT offerings launched in 2010/2011 and have the 
highest total return metrics of any non-AIM VCT launched in the last ten 
years (at 161.1 and 159.8 pence per share for Gresham House Renewable 
Energy VCT 1 and Gresham House Renewable Energy VCT 2 respectively)(1) . 
These returns exclude the 30% VCT tax rebate available to UK tax payers. 
Last year in December 2018, the VCTs paid a dividend of 6 pence, 
bringing the total dividend payments, to shareholders who invested at 
launch, to 45 pence.
