Indian renewable energy company Adani Green Energy (AGEL) has raised $750m in funding through green bonds to fund the equity needs of its renewable assets currently under construction.
The funding was raised through a three-year maiden ListCo senior issuance under the 144A / Reg S format at a 4.375% fixed coupon.
This will complete the final phase of AGEL’s fundraising programme for debt and equity to install 25GW of renewable power capacity by 2025.
In March, the company signed a $1.35bn revolving construction framework arrangement with international lenders for the projects. A total of 12 financial institutions approved the hybrid project loan in India.
Under the terms of the new structure, AGEL will be able to obtain up to $1,700m, including the present issuance, over the course of time subject to the agreements of the structure.
AGEL managing director and CEO Vneet Jaain said: “The 4.7X oversubscription of this issuance is testimony of the confidence of global investors in the world’s fastest-growing Renewable Energy platform and Adani’s capability to set up a world-class clean energy business.
