Renewable Power

Response to Thalassa Announce

RNS Number : 5652J
Renewable Power and Light Plc

Renewable Power & Light plc

Response to Thalassa Announcement & Requisition of General Meeting

The board of Renewable Power & Light plc ("RPL" or the "Company") notes the announcement made yesterday on 30 March 2010, by Thalassa Holdings Limited (the "Current Thalassa Announcement") and confirms that it received at its registered office a letter enclosing the new requisition of general meeting and members' statement of Thalassa Holdings Limited and CityPoint Holdings Limited (together, "Thalassa") reproduced in the Current Thalassa Announcement.

The Company makes the following comments to the Current Thalassa Announcement.

No proposal for a New Investing Policy 

As stated in the Company's announcement of 17 March 2010, Thalassa had failed to propose a new investing policy which complied with the AIM Rules.

The board notes that in the Current Thalassa Announcement, the proposal for a new investing policy has now been removed altogether and no mention has been made as to a future strategy for the Company. This appears contrary to the previously announced Thalassa view that the current investing policy is to be changed.

Since the announcement of Thalassa's first requisition, the board has made a number of requests for Thalassa to provide further information on its proposed investing policy but no such information has yet been provided.  The board is concerned that shareholders do not, and will not, have sufficient information about the proposed new directors' strategy for the Company on which they can make an informed decision on whether to vote in favour of replacing the current board.  The board believes that withholding such information will be to the detriment of minority shareholders.

If Thalassa is successful in replacing the board then a further general meeting would be required to approve a new investing strategy.  The board again re-iterates its request for Thalassa to provide full details of its new investment strategy as soon as possible so that shareholders can make an informed decision at the requisitioned general meeting. Failure to do so will waste shareholder funds in convening an additional general meeting for that purpose.

Requisition of General Meeting and Annual General Meeting

A notice convening a general meeting will be dispatched in due course. It is proposed that to the extent possible, the date of the requisitioned general meeting will coincide with the date of the Company's Annual General Meeting, currently proposed to take place on or around 18 May 2010.  The Board considers that in doing so it will conserve the Company's cash resources and be in the best interests of  shareholders.
