Net Asset Value

The Company announces its unaudited Net Asset Value ("NAV") as at 30 June 2019.

The NAV per ordinary share amounted to 110.4p as at 30 June 2019, compared to 110.9p as at 31 March 2019. The movement in NAV per ordinary share was driven by numerous factors, including a fall in the medium- and long-term forecasts for power prices in the UK and a reduction in short-term inflation forecasts, offset in part by financing efficiencies.

The Company's June 2019 factsheet is available on the Company's website nextenergysolarfund.com

Interim Dividend and Scrip Dividend Alternative

NESF is pleased to announce an interim dividend of 1.7175 pence per ordinary share for the quarter ending 30 June 2019.

Notes to Editors:

NESF is a specialist investment company that invests primarily in operating solar power plants in the UK. It is able to invest up to 15% of its Gross Asset Value in operating solar power plants in OECD countries outside the UK. The Company's objective is to secure attractive shareholder returns through RPI-linked dividends and long-term capital growth. The Company achieves this by acquiring solar power plants on agricultural, industrial and commercial sites.

As at 30 June 2019, NESF has raised equity proceeds of GBP692m (including GBP100m of preference shares) since its initial public offering on the main market of the London Stock Exchange in April 2014. The Company's subsidiaries have financial debt outstanding of GBP269m, on a look-through basis and including at project level. Of this, GBP199m was long-term fully amortising financing, and GBP70m was drawn under a short-term credit facility.

NESF is differentiated by its access to NextEnergy Capital Group ("NEC Group"), its Investment Manager, which has a strong track record in sourcing, acquiring and managing operating solar assets. WiseEnergy is NEC Group's specialist operating asset management division and over the course of its activities has provided operating asset management, monitoring, technical due diligence and other services to over 1,300 utility-scale solar power plants with an installed capacity in excess of 1.9 GW.
