The Board of Impax Asian Environmental Markets plc is pleased to announce that, in light of continuing demand for the Company's Ordinary Shares from both existing shareholders and potential new investors, it is considering the possibility of raising new monies through an issue of C Shares.
The Company is a London-listed investment company, managed by Impax Asset Management Limited, which seeks to enable shareholders to benefit from the expected superior, long-term capital growth of companies active in the environmental sector that are based in the Asia-Pacific region. In managing the fund, Impax Asset Management draws on its strong relationship with Ajia Partners, the Asian specialist investment manager based in Hong Kong. The Company currently has net assets of approximately £130 million.
Further details as to the timing and quantum of any C Share issue will be made in due course if the Board decides to proceed.
