Switch was looking for acquisition capital to purchase a portfolio of operational energy storage projects located in Ontario. They wanted to fund the acquisition with non-dilutive capital that would keep their financing options open as they grow their Ontario energy storage portfolio. Switch also required a financing partner that could work under a compressed timeline to ensure they could meet the transaction closing timeline set during the initial negotiations with the original owner of the projects.
To help Switch with their acquisition, we provided a $2.3 million loan to finance the purchase of the storage portfolio. Our financing was flexible enough to keep future financing options open, while still being accretive to Switch’s existing shareholders. We were also able to get through due diligence in record time, ensuring the acquisition closed successfully and on schedule.
Trevor White, President and CEO of Switch Power commented,
“This transaction is transformational for our growth into a new market and compliments our electricity as a service value proposition through energy storage, which has huge market potential. We have a growing pipeline of projects and are excited to scale the market and do so through acquiring cash flowing assets. RE Royalties non-dilutive and flexible financing has enabled us to step into this transaction and focus our capital on growth, and we’re excited about the relationship.”
