The Green Bond from hep

The owner-run hep global group possesses a strong combination of extensive expertise in photovoltaics and investment. In its “Services” arm, the company operates as an international single-source specialist for the development, construction and operation of solar parks, focusing on the USA, Japan, Germany, and Canada. hep’s “Investments” department covers the shaping, management and marketing of Alternative Investment Funds through its own investment management company. Standardized processes between the “Services” and “Investments” arms enable quick transactions, with low costs. The successful track record comprises 800 MWp of developed power output and a fund volume of approx. EUR 268 million (as at 3/31/2021) under management. With a pipeline of 5.3 GWp, hep has a strong basis for further dynamic growth. Anticipated total sales, based just on market values, for late-stage/notice to proceed projects to 2025 amount to over EUR 500 million.

Over the past 10 years, hep has primarily financed project development services through its own project development fund, but now the early-stage and “active development” project development is similarly being undertaken at its own expense. These development phases are characterized by a significantly larger number of projects in the market, alongside significantly higher margins compared to the subsequent phases, whilst also having a lower capital requirement per projected KWp. In light of this, around 75 % of the proceeds of issue from the Green Bond 2021/2026 are intended for financing the acquisition of future photovoltaic projects in the early stage and active development phase. Some 25 % of the incoming proceeds are planned as working capital to develop and expand the hep global group.
