According to Leviste, the company is in discussions with investors for private placements. This is on top of the stock rights offering with with offer period set from 30 August to 5 September.

“Our job is for these offerings to cover the equity required to complete the development of 10 GW of solar projects, while retaining an average of at least 50% economic interest,” he also said.

“SPNEC’s model is to create value through project development, investing for a smaller percentage of the cost that catalyzes larger investments, in the same way that we have in our earlier projects.”

The share swap agreement between Solar Philippines and SPNEC involved the issuance of 24.37 billion shares at an issue price of P2.50 per share. 

This is in exchange for Solar Philippines’ portfolio that includes more than 400 megawatts of projects, either operating or under construction.
