Brookfield Enters Exclusive Discussions to Purchase Neoen in a €6.1 Billion Transaction – Insights Success

Share

Neoen is a global developer of renewable energy and Brookfield and Temasek, a Singaporean corporation, are collaborating to buy the company for €6.1 billion. Discussions are underway for Brookfield’s second global energy transition fund and Temasek to purchase a 53.32% share in Neoen from investors that include Xavier Barbaro, the company’s chairman and CEO, Impala and a consortium of seven significant French insurers that support the Fonds Stratégique de Participations (FSP).

According to Brookfield officials, Neoen would be valued at €6.1 billion if the €39.85 per share offer is successful, which also proposes an all-cash mandatory tender offer for all outstanding convertible bonds and remaining shares. The largest investor in the Brookfield Global Transition Fund II, Brookfield’s renewable division, is to contribute up to €500 million to the acquisition, which will be financed by available liquidity.

Neoen, which was established in 2008 and has its headquarters in France, specializes in solar, wind and storage energy. The 300 MWp solar farm in Cestas, France; the 404 MW wind farm in Mutkalampi, Finland; the 375 MWp El Llano solar project in Mexico; and the massive Hornsdale Power Reserve and Victorian Big Battery storage installations in Australia are among Neoen’s showpiece ventures.

According to Connor Teskey, CEO of Brookfield’s renewable power and transition division, acquiring Neoen would provide exposure to important renewable markets and experience in battery storage. Brookfield’s goals are to fortify Neoen’s standing as a world leader in renewable energy and quicken the company’s growth.

The management said, “Brookfield’s proposal, which represents a 27% premium to the stock’s last closing price, was overwhelmingly welcomed by Neoen’s board.”
