Glennmont Seeks More Than 500MW of Investment Opportunities in Clean Energy Infrastructure Assets with Expanded Investment Capacity

Jaa

Glennmont Partners has expanded its investment capacity in the clean energy infrastructure space and now has three funds under management – these are Fund I (2010) and Fund II (2013), which are fully invested, and now a new third Fund (2017). Opportunities are being sought for a portfolio of clean energy infrastructure projects in Europe. Glennmont is one of Europe’s largest investors focusing exclusively on investment in clean energy infrastructure. This announcement follows the successful refinancing of Glennmont’s 245MW Italian wind portfolio in October and the refinancing of the Sleaford straw-fired biomass plant in September - amounting to around €340m of capital raised over the course of 2017.

Glennmont’s strategy remains consistent with its past experiences: it seeks to invest in solar PV, offshore and onshore wind, bioenergy and small-scale hydro across the EEA; it will target to-be-built and recently operational assets with stable, predictable cash yields underpinned by regulated and contracted revenues.

Glennmont’s investment strategy is consistent with its prior portfolios of 355MW and 500MW respectively and is evidence of the growing importance of clean energy in the European energy portfolio. Fears of reduced profitability due to reducing government support schemes have been offset by the falling costs of renewable power produced; many new routes to market for power, such as the corporate PPA market; and the extension of a number of government support schemes.

Commenting on the search for investments, Glennmont CEO, Joost Bergsma said:

“Glennmont continues to believe that the clean energy market is attractive to investors and delighted to have expanded its investment capacity allowing us to continue to find and deliver value across a diversified portfolio of power generation assets. When we formed Glennmont in 2007 we were clear that our specialist focus on clean energy infrastructure investments would allow us to set the standard for the clean energy industry. Our Investment and Asset Management teams work together to identify, secure and add value to some of the best clean energy generation assets in Europe”.

Christopher Knowles, Head of EIB's Infrastructure Fund and Climate Action Team said, “EIB welcome the announcement by Glennmont Partners that it has returned to the clean energy investment market and is investing its third clean energy fund. This news is indicative of the momentum behind the global shift towards low carbon technologies that we are seeing currently. With investment in clean renewable energy at record levels we can look forward to a similarly successful year in 2018 as we continue to drive innovation, create high value jobs and tackle climate change.”

Glennmont acknowledges the financial support provided by the European Investment Bank with the backing of the European Union through benefits from a guarantee from the European Union under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (“EFSI”) further to an agreement on the management of the EFSI and on the EU guarantee to be provided by the European Union entered into on 22 July 2015 by the EIB and the European Union, as amended, supplemented or restated (the “EFSI Agreement”).

Octapharma Share Promising Preclinical Data for SubQ-8, a Novel Subcutaneous Recombinant FVIII, at WFH 201828.5.2018 10:58Tiedote

Octapharma announced today that pre-clinical data for SubQ-8 were presented during a symposium at the recent World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress in Glasgow, UK. SubQ-8, currently under development, is a recombinant FVIII from a human cell line for subcutaneous administration. SubQ-8 is based on Octapharma’s human cell line-derived rFVIII product simoctocog alpha combined with a fragment of the von Willebrand Factor (VWF) protein, and harnesses the protective power of VWF in an innovative approach to facilitate transportation of FVIII into the circulation. Regular intravenous administration of FVIII poses a considerable burden to people with haemophilia A and their families. Alternative routes of administration may help to alleviate some of this burden and improve adherence to prophylaxis therapy. This symposium, entitled ‘Taking FVIII into the future: The development of subcutaneous recombinant human FVIII for the treatment of haemophilia A’, reviewed the challenge

Octapharma present new data on the benefits of Nuwiq® in patients with haemophilia A at the World Federation of Hemophilia 2018 World Congress28.5.2018 10:57Tiedote

Octapharma announced today that new data on the benefits of Nuwiq® in patients with haemophilia A were presented during a symposium at the recent World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress in Glasgow, UK. Nuwiq® is a 4th generation human cell line-derived recombinant FVIII (rFVIII) approved for the prevention and treatment of bleeding episodes in patients of all ages with haemophilia A. The symposium, entitled ‘Going further to meet clinical needs: New data with Nuwiq ® ▼ (simoctocog alfa; human-cl rFVIII) from clinical trials and real-world experience’, focused on the challenges within the current haemophilia treatment landscape and opportunities to improve patient care. The symposium, chaired by Craig Kessler, addressed the reality that no two haemophilia A patients are the same. An optimal treatment approach should therefore reflect each individual patient’s profile. Striving towards this goal, two approaches to using pharmacokinetic (PK) data to personalise prophylaxi

FCF: Greenpeace Allegations Unfair and Deceptive26.5.2018 21:02Tiedote

FCF Fishery, Co. President Max Chou today released the following statement regarding recent misleading Greenpeace human rights abuse allegations made against the company: “We realize that as one of the world’s largest marine products integrated supply chain service providers with more than 30 subsidiaries, fishing bases, and shipping agents around the world, we are a prime target for organizations seeking to garner publicity and those not fully aware of the latest development and improvements that are currently taking place in the fishery industry. However, in their efforts to curb egregious human rights abuses, we believe it is unfair and deceptive to lump our company in with those who condone cruelty and neglect of their laborers. “Although we recognize the meaningful work of Greenpeace in exposing and eliminating human trafficking and sustainability abuses, we are equally disappointed that they are implicating FCF in old incidents and cases that have since been in all instances addr
