This prospectus relates to the public offering to existing shareholders and any holders of an extra-legal preferential right to subscribe to newly issued ordinary shares in the Company.
Accelerating the establishment of a net zero society has never been as relevant as it is today. The climate and geopolitical crises are calling for increasing investments in energy infrastructure for ensuring that Europe’s energy policy becomes more climate-neutral, independent and resilient.
Therefore, our rights issue of up to €600 million immediately demonstrates the social relevance of our work. It will allow Elia Group’s capital structure to be strengthened, so that the Group may realise important investment projects that will drive the energy transition forward in our home markets of Belgium and Germany.
Our growth strategy has been successful in the past and it has become even more relevant in the current context. This is what has provided us with the confidence to enter the financial markets and we are excited at the prospect of investors (re)affirming their confidence in our company. At Elia Group, we embrace the future in the interest of society.
Chris Peeters, CEO of Elia Group
