Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure plc:

Atlantica announces proposed offering of $100 million green exchangeable senior notes

July 14, 2020 – Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure Plc (“Atlantica,” NASDAQ: AY) announced the launch of an offering of $100,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of green exchangeable senior notes due 2025 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be the senior unsecured obligations of Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure Jersey Limited (the “Issuer”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlantica, and fully and unconditionally guaranteed, on a senior, unsecured basis, by Atlantica. 

The Notes will accrue interest payable semiannually in arrears. The Notes will be exchangeable, pursuant to a cash box procedure, into the ordinary shares of Atlantica par value $0.10 per share (the “Ordinary Shares”), cash, or a combination thereof, at Atlantica’s election and will mature on July 15, 2025 unless earlier repurchased, redeemed pursuant to a tax redemption or exchanged. The interest rate, initial exchange rate and other terms of the Notes have not been finalized and will be determined at the time of pricing of the offering.

The Issuer may not redeem the Notes prior to their stated maturity date, unless certain tax-related events occur. If certain events that constitute a “fundamental change” occur, then holders of the Notes may require the Issuer to repurchase their Notes for cash at a repurchase price equal to the principal amount of the Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest. In addition, upon certain corporate events or upon tax redemption, Atlantica will, under certain circumstances, increase the exchange rate for holders who exchange Notes in connection with the relevant event or tax redemption.

Atlantica intends to use the proceeds to refinance or finance, in whole or in part, the acquisition of new or ongoing assets or projects which meet certain eligibility criteria in accordance with Atlantica’s Green Finance Framework.
