Barcelona, February 9, 2022.- Enerside Energy, S.A. launched today an offer of newly issued ordinary shares to increase capital by up to 40 million euros to facilitate the company’s incorporation into BME Growth and support its current business plan.
Enerside is a fully integrated photovoltaic solar energy sector company that stands out for its strong industrial profile and geographic diversification in the markets with the greatest potential for solar energy (Spain, Italy, Brazil and Chile).
Its current 2021-2025 business plan contemplates all the phases of the value chain, from the generation of the opportunity, the development, the construction and the subsequent operation and maintenance of photovoltaic plants. Enerside is currently immersed in promoting the development of 4.5 GW in differentiated, highly qualified projects with an advanced degree of maturity that give it an excellent position to capture the growth in demand and a great capacity to generate value, through the sale of projects in the RTB (Ready To Build) phase and with the direct exploitation of part of the pipeline as an independent power producer (IPP).
Towards an IPP model with integrated services and a strong industrial profile
Last year 2021 was a transformational year for Enerside after reaching several business milestones that allowed the company to make a very relevant qualitative leap, fully integrating the construction of projects for third parties (EPC) and the sale of its own projects in phase RTB, which capture the value generated through the company’s distinctive industrial know-how.
Among the business milestones in 2021, the sale of Enerside’s company in Brazil, SV Ribeiro Gonçalves Energía Solar SPE stands out, as well as the Brazilian Echoenergia Participações, S.A., which includes 280 MW under development. This park had 322 MW before the sale, of which 42 MW were separated in another company that continues to be 100% owned by Enerside, and that will build and operate as IPP.
The 2021 financial year evidenced the clear capture of the objectives of the company’s strategic plan. These objectives deepen its position throughout the value chain, based on its expertise as a developer and constructor of photovoltaic plants, and progressively incorporating until 2025 its role as an independent producer, through the ownership and direct exploitation of up to 1 GW of one part of its current development pipeline.
For 2022, the company estimates a significant growth in income above 40 million euros, and an EBITDA of more than 3 million euros. As of today, Enerside has 62% visibility of these objectives, thanks to already signed EPC/BOS contracts with renowned clients.
The business plan up to 2025 foresees strong growth in revenues and EBITDA compared to the 2022 targets. Revenues would be generated from a combination of EPC (turnkey) third-party project activity and operation and maintenance, sale of assets under development and COD (Commercial Operation Date) and income from power generation as an independent operator (IPP).
Request to join BME Growth
As agreed at the General Meeting of Enerside that took place on January 15, and as it also announced to the market, on January 24, the company will request the listing on BME Growth of all its shares, including the New Shares derived from the capital increase, in the BME Growth trading segment of BME MTF Equity.
The specific number of shares to be issued will be set by Enerside once the demand prospecting period ends, prior agreement with the placement entities. The final price of the offers will determine the first reference price for the start of trading of the company’s shares in BME Growth.
The operation is directed by ALANTRA EQUITIES SOCIEDAD DE VALORES, S.A., as Global Coordinating Entity and Placement Entity (Sole Global Coordinator and Joint Bookrunner, RENTA 4 BANCO, S.A. and ANDBANK ESPAÑA, S.A.U., as Placement Entities (Joint Bookrunners). Likewise, RENTA 4 BANCO, S.A., acts as Agent Entity of the Offer and as Liquidity Provider.
The advisers to the issuer are Renta 4 Corporate, S.A., in its capacity as registered adviser, and Latham & Watkins LLP, as adviser on the legal aspects of the offer. The legal advisor of the placement entities is Linklaters, S.L.P. On the other hand, EY has participated as auditor of the company and in the financial due diligence and Ramón y Cajal has participated in the legal due diligence of the operation.
Since its inception in 2007, Enerside has built photovoltaic installations in Spain, Chile and Brazil for highly prestigious clients. It is currently building 126 MW for third parties and also manages the operation and maintenance (O&M) of 21 MW of solar plants for third parties, mostly awarded to projects built by the Company. In addition, at the end of 2021, the Company began construction of its first PMGDs projects in Chile, totalling 26 MW.
This background lends it a unique and differential industrial track record that has enabled it to develop an important portfolio of its own projects for sale or direct exploitation as IPP. The experience and knowledge of its team (more than 60% of its staff are technicians and engineers) allows it to carry out all the development of the projects internally, from generating the opportunity, to relying on its local teams in the markets in which it operates, and at a very competitive cost. In this manner, it creates high value when selling the projects in the Ready to Build (RTB) or Commercial Operation Date (COD) phase and also when operating the plants as an independent power producer (IPP).
The Company has a Board of Directors, in accordance with international corporate governance best practices, which includes three independent directors. In addition, it has a management team with great experience and solvency in the energy sector that has been working together for several years.
