RUBIS becomes HDF ENERGY's second largest shareholder

with 18.5% of the capital



As announced in the press release of June 10, 2021, Rubis is investing in renewable energies participating in the IPO of the HDF Energy, a world pioneer in hydrogen-electricity.

Rubis obtained 2.5 million of shares at a subscription price of ?31.05 (i.e., a total investment of ?78.6 million). Rubis now holds 18.5% of the share capital and voting rights of HDF Energy, on a non-diluted basis (17% on a fully diluted basis), thus becoming the second largest shareholder.

As a reminder, this investment is part of a strategic partnership which includes the following elements:

  • Rubis will benefit, for a period of five years, from a priority to invest in projects that HDF Energy plans to develop in Africa/Indian Ocean, in the Caribbean and in Europe, allowing Rubis to position itself as a majority direct investor in renewable electricity production projects targeting double-digit Internal Rate of Return (IRR) on the invested. In addition to this, outside of these areas, Rubis will have the option to invest in such a project without requiring a majority stake;
  • Rubis will provide HDF Energy with local knowledge and technical, logistical, administrative, and legal support for the projects developed in the countries where Rubis is present and in which it has invested.
  • Rubis SCA gets a seat at the Board of Directors of HDF Energy and with Rubis énergie a position of censor (censeur).
