Potential Zero Dividend Preference Share Issue


The Board of Renewable Energy Generation Limited ("REG" or the "Company") is actively considering an issue of Zero Dividend Preference shares ("ZDP Shares") as a financing option to augment its existing cash resources, which are in excess of £20 million, along with current non-recourse project financing from the banking sector.


The purpose of the new finance will be to expedite construction of projects within its wind development portfolio in order that they can be delivered under the Renewables Obligation regime.


If the Board determines to proceed with the issue of ZDP Shares it will not aim to raise more than £30 million, with the terms of the ZDP Shares being consistent with current market parameters. The intention of the issue will be to deliver enhanced returns for ordinary shareholders.


A further update will be provided in due course, after discussions with shareholders and investors. A decision to issue the ZDP Shares would be subject to the approval of existing ordinary shareholders in a general meeting.
