KFM Deutsche Mittelstand AG Confirms Photon Energy Group’s Green EUR Bond 2021/2027 as Attractive with 4 out of 5 Stars
Amsterdam – 9 September 2022 – Photon Energy N.V. (WSE&PSE: PEN, FSX: A1T9KW) (the ‘Company’ or the ‘Issuer’) announces that KFM Deutsche Mittelstand AG (‘KFM’), an expert in the field of bonds for medium-sized companies, has reconfirmed the Company’s 6.50% Green Bond 2021/2027 (DE000A3KWKY4) as ‘attractive’, with 4 out of 5 stars, in its latest KFM-Mittelstandsanleihen Barometer. This prestigious award follows the Company’s recent announcement of the Green Bond 2021/2027 tap issuance.
The published assessment of the bond, which includes an annual coupon of 6.50%, was based on the scoring analysis procedure developed by KFM.
‘By focusing on the generation of renewable energy, the Issuer operates a very profitable business model. Over the past years, Photon Energy has built up an extensive network in the market and a profitable portfolio of own PV plants as well as O&M (operation and maintenance) orders,’ KFM analysts stated.
On the Company’s business development in the first half of 2022, KFM added: ‘In the first half of 2022, Photon Energy has demonstrated its ability to quickly adapt to market conditions by deciding to temporarily convert most of the group's Hungarian solar power plants to the merchant model. This is because rising electricity prices in particular are having a positive impact on Photon Energy's earnings. For example, foregoing possible state feed-in tariffs and selling on direct power exchanges is becoming increasingly attractive.’
Clemens Wohlmuth, CFO of the Photon Energy Group, commented, ‘We are very pleased to have received confirmation of the Green Bond 2021/2027 as an attractive investment, as it strengthens the trust of numerous investors and institutions in our business model. This is underlined by the investment by KFM in our bond through its German and European SME Bond FOND.’
The tap issuance volume of the bond is up to EUR 25 million. Investors from Germany, Austria and Luxembourg can subscribe for the bond until 11 October 2022 directly through the Company's website. In addition, a private placement will be launched towards the end of the subscription period.
All information related to the offering process as well as the documents necessary to subscribe for the bonds can be found on the Company’s website under the link www.photonenergy.com/greenbond2022.
