Update on project delivery and ZDP


Renewable Energy Generation Limited, the UK focused multi-divisional renewables company, announces that further to its announcement of 26 June 2015, it has decided not to proceed with the proposed issue of zero dividend preference shares ("ZDP Shares").

Current sentiment in the debt markets, augmented by changes in the regulatory environment for onshore wind generating assets have, in the Board's view, reduced the attractiveness of the ZDP Shares as a means to finance delivery of projects under the Government's revised Renewables Obligation and Feed-in Tariff regimes.

The Board believes it is in the best interests of ordinary shareholders that the Company's portfolio of 150MW of consented renewable energy projects be delivered by means of its existing and proven funding strategy.  This includes a combination of third party asset finance, the recycling of capital through selective asset sales, and the reinvestment of revenues generated from our existing portfolio of 111MW across our wind, solar and bio-power divisions.

REG's CEO Andrew Whalley said, "REG is a revenue generative and asset backed renewable energy company.   We have always had multiple funding options at our disposal with which to roll-out our growing portfolio of consented assets to maximise returns for our shareholders.  I look forward to providing further updates on our progress, as we look to deliver on our objective to build and manage a diversified portfolio of UK renewable energy projects across our wind, solar and biopower divisions with a combined capacity of 300MW within three years."
