UK-based global investor ThomasLloyd has announced it has received approval from the Indian government to acquire a 43% stake in Delhi-based SolarArise India Projects for $34.6 million.
SolarArise India Projects, an investee company of ThomasLloyd, owns seven solar power projects with a cumulative capacity of 434MW in India.
ThomasLloyd expects the acquisition to complete in the second quarter of 2022. “Consideration of $34.6 million for the acquisition will be settled via the issuance of ordinary shares in the company,” stated the company.
SolarArise was founded in 2014 by James Abraham, Anil Nayar and Tanya Singhal. Other shareholders besides ThomasLloyd are the Global Efficiency and Renewable Energy Fund (GEEREF), advised by the European Investment Bank Group, the Core Infrastructure India Fund (CIIF), managed by Kotak Mahindra Bank, and the founding team.
ThomasLloyd has entered into a conditional Heads of Terms Agreement to increase its investment in SolarArise by purchasing further shares from the other existing shareholders.
“The company remains on target to deliver an annual dividend of 2-3% per share on the basis of the initial offer price of $1 per share for the year ending 31 December 2022. The Board and Investment Manager continues to carefully assess a strong pipeline of diverse opportunities for further deployment of the initial proceeds,” it said.
