London Stock Exchange welcomes VH Global Sustainable Energy Opportunities plc

London Stock Exchange welcomed VH Global Sustainable Energy Opportunities plc to the Premium Segment of the Main Market today, after it raised gross proceeds of £242.6 million pursuant to its initial public offering.

VH Global Sustainable Energy Opportunities plc intends to invest in a diversified portfolio of global sustainable energy infrastructure assets, predominantly in countries that are members of the EU, OECD, OECD Key Partner Countries or OECD Accession Countries.

The investment adviser to the company will be Victory Hill Capital Advisors LLP. Victory Hill is based in London and was founded in May 2020 by an experienced team of energy financiers that have spun-out of a large established global project finance banking group. The team has an established track record built over 5 years while working together and participating in over $37.1bn in sustainable energy project transaction values, generating over 24.2 per cent. equity returns. Victory Hill is a signatory of the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Investing and is a supporter of the Financial Stability Board's Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures.

VH Global Sustainable Energy Opportunities plc has qualified for the London Stock Exchange's Green Economy Mark at admission, which recognises companies that derive 50% or more of their total annual revenues from products and services that contribute to the global green economy. 

Bernard Bulkin, Chair of GSEO, commented: "The Board is very pleased with the strong, broad-based response from investors to the proposition of VH Global Sustainable Energy Opportunities plc. It reflects the confidence from the investment community in the high calibre team at Victory Hill, our investment advisers. We have an excellent pipeline of projects which will now move forward, playing our part in the Energy Transition."

Anthony Catachanas, CEO of Victory Hill Capital Advisors LLP, commented: "The team at Victory Hill are very pleased with the recognition and trust investors have given us. It is also very clear that investors value our investment philosophy, its global focus on the Energy Transition as a means to achieve a more sustainable energy future. We look forward to deploying the capital in the coming weeks and months."
