Renewable Energy Generation Limited ("the Company" or "REG")

Update on Zero Dividend Preference Share Issue


Further to announcements by Renewable Energy Generation Limited,  (the "Company") the AIM quoted UK focused multi-divisional renewables company, on 02 June 2015 and 22 June 2015, the Company has decided to proceed with an issue of zero dividend preference shares ("ZDP Shares") to support the procurement and construction phases of projects within its wind portfolio in the UK.


The Board believes that obtaining additional finance through the issue of ZDP Shares, will allow the Company to accelerate the delivery of projects under the Government's revised Renewables Obligation and Feed-in Tariff regimes and hence maximise value for shareholders.


In light of recent announcements from the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change on Renewable Obligations, the Company are proposing revised terms in relation to the ZDP Shares.  The ZDP Share life will be reduced to approximately 4.5 years.  The Gross Redemption Yield will remain the same and be approximately 4.0 per cent with the ZDP Shares to be issued at 100 pence per ZDP Share to raise gross proceeds not exceeding £31 million.


The issue of ZDP Shares will be subject to regulatory and shareholder approval and the Company will be publishing an updated Shareholder Circular and EGM notice shortly.  Full details of the proposed indicative terms attached to the proposed ZDP Shares will be set out in the Shareholder Circular.
