In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Borealis Infrastructure Buys Equity Stake in Four US Wind Farms from Spain's EDP Renováveis
Transaction lays foundation for future collaboration between Borealis and EDPR

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- EDP Renovaveis S.A. ("EDPR") has reached an agreement to sell 49% of the Class A shares in a portfolio of wind farm assets located in the United States to Borealis Infrastructure for US$230 million. The portfolio is comprised of four wind farms totalling 599 MW, all of which were installed between 2007 and 2008 and have long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in place. EDPR will continue to own the remaining 51% of the Class A shares in the portfolio.

Borealis Infrastructure invests in and manages infrastructure investments on behalf of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System ("OMERS"), one of Canada's largest pension funds. Its large-scale assets in the energy sector include the recent acquisition of Michigan-based Midland Cogeneration Venture ("MCV"), the largest natural gas fired, combined cycle cogeneration plant in the United States.

"Our investment in this portfolio marks a significant commitment by Borealis to the renewables sector, and is the type of large-scale infrastructure asset we look for to generate stable and consistent returns for the pension plan. We look forward to working with the proven management team at EDPR, and see this transaction as the beginning of a long-term partnership," said Michael Rolland, President and CEO of Borealis.

EDPR is the world's third largest wind energy company. Through this transaction, EDPR is commencing the execution of its asset rotation strategy, which it announced as one of its core objectives earlier this year. This strategy involves selling minority stakes in mature projects that are operationally optimised and with a low risk profile. This will enable EDPR to crystallise the value of its projects' future cash-flow streams and re-invest in the development of quality and value-accretive projects, while contributing to its self-funding growth objective.

"We are pleased to have gained a partner such as Borealis," said Joao Manso Neto, EDPR Chief Executive Officer. "This partnership is a step toward securing a positive future for both EDPR and Borealis. We look forward to the continuation of this relationship as EDPR continues to grow."

Barclays acted as financial advisor for Borealis, and Shearman & Sterling acted as legal advisor.

The transaction is subject to the customary regulatory approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ("CFIUS").
