Solarpack Corporación Tecnológica, S.A. (“Solarpack”) (BME: SPK) is an international pure solar photovoltaic (“PV”) independent power producer (“IPP”) focusing on the development, construction, financing and operation of utility-scale solar PV power plants. Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Getxo, Spain, Solarpack is present in 10 markets and has successfully developed 529 MW in 6 different countries.
- On December 3, 2018, Solarpack announced that the final price of the offering of its shares to qualified investors, both in Spain and in other jurisdictions, had been fixed at EUR8.30 per share, representing an initial market capitalization of EUR266 million. It is expected that the shares of the company will be admitted to trading on the Stock Exchanges of Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and Valencia on December 5, 2018, and will start trading on the same date
- As part of the IPO, Solarpack issued approximately 12 million new shares representing 37.6% of the issued share capital for a total capital raise of EUR100 million. The number of shares comprised in the offering may be increased by approximately 1.2 million additional shares (equivalent to 10% of the number of initial shares of the offering). Upon settlement of the offering, the company’s principal shareholders will hold 64.3% of its issued share capital (or 62.0% if the over-allotment option is fully exercised)
- Consistent with Solarpack’s strategy, the gross proceeds obtained in the IPO will be primarily invested in the execution of its 510 MW contracted project backlog, in the acquisition of 13 MW of operating assets in Spain, and used to further develop its 2.9 GW pipeline of future projects worldwide
