26.4.2007: Meldung: Renewable Energy Holdings Announces Credit Facility

Renewable Energy Holdings plc ("REH"), the AIM-listed investor and operator of proven and innovative renewable energy technologies, today announces that it has been informed that Standard Chartered Bank has obtained credit approval to provide REH with a project finance facility of up to £91.8m. The facility will fund the refinancing of REH"s existing assets in Germany and subsequently, subject to meeting certain investment criteria and conditions, the 4.6MW expansion to its German windfarm, a further 8MW expansion in Germany and the Company"s windfarm pipe-line in Europe and the UK. It is expected that the legal and documentation requirements for financial close of the facility will be satisfied within the next month.

"We always planned to refinance our German projects as the level of equity required for construction financing was considered too high," said Mike Proffitt, Chief Executive Officer of Renewable Energy Holdings. "I am delighted that the Company will now see the release of that capital which will be used for further growth."

Shane Bush, Head of Global Renewable Energy at Standard Chartered Bank, said, "Standard Chartered Bank is delighted with the opportunity to strengthen its relationship with REH as it commences this key stage of growth in the very attractive renewable energy market."
