Green Bond - hep


WITH hep

Green Bond

The owner-mana­ged hep glo­bal Group has a strong com­bi­na­ti­on of many years of pho­to­vol­taic and invest­ment exper­ti­se. In the “Ser­vices” seg­ment, the com­pa­ny acts as an inter­na­tio­nal spe­cia­list for the deve­lo­p­ment, con­struc­tion and ope­ra­ti­on of solar parks from a sin­gle source with a focus on the USA, Japan, Ger­ma­ny and Cana­da. In the “Invest­ments” seg­ment, hep covers the con­cep­ti­on, manage­ment and sales of alter­na­ti­ve invest­ment funds through its own capi­tal manage­ment com­pa­ny. Stan­dar­di­zed pro­ces­ses bet­ween the “Ser­vices” and “Invest­ments” seg­ments enab­le fast tran­sac­tions with low costs.

The suc­cess­ful track record is com­po­sed of 800 MWp of deve­lo­ped capa­ci­ty and a fund volu­me of around EUR 268 mil­li­on (as of 31/03/2021) under manage­ment. With a pipe­line of 5.3 GWp, hep has a strong basis for fur­ther dyna­mic growth. The expec­ta­ble total reve­nue from so-cal­led late-sta­ge/­no­ti­ce-to-pro­ceed pro­jects based on mar­ket values alo­ne amounts to more than EUR 500 mil­li­on by 2025.

After hep has finan­ced pro­ject deve­lo­p­ment ser­vices pri­ma­ri­ly through its own pro­ject deve­lo­p­ment funds over the past 10 years, so-cal­led ear­ly-sta­ge and acti­ve-deve­lo­p­ment pro­ject deve­lo­p­ment is now car­ri­ed out on its own account. The­se deve­lo­p­ment pha­ses are cha­rac­te­ri­zed by a clear­ly lar­ger num­ber of pro­jects on the mar­ket and signi­fi­cant­ly hig­her mar­gins com­pa­red to the sub­se­quent pha­ses, while at the same time requi­ring less capi­tal per pro­jec­ted KWp. Against this back­ground, around 75% of the pro­ceeds from the issue of the Green Bond 2021/2026 are inten­ded to be used to finan­ce the acqui­si­ti­on of future pho­to­vol­taic pro­jects in the ear­ly-sta­ge and acti­ve-deve­lo­p­ment pha­ses. Around 25% of the inflowing funds are plan­ned for working capi­tal for the estab­lish­ment and expan­si­on of the hep glo­bal Group.
