Goldman Sachs, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) have subscribed to the issue, with each of the shareholders infusing $100 million, a company statement said.

A rights issue is a dividend of subscription rights to buy additional shares in a company made to the company’s existing shareholders. The rights issue involved ReNew Power issuing Compulsorily Convertible Preference Shares (CCPSs) to each of the investors, which will be converted into equity at a subsequent stage.

“The rights issue will enable our existing investors to deepen their investment in ReNew reflecting their continued faith in the Indian renewable energy market. The proceeds of the issue will be used primarily as capex for our existing pipeline of projects,” ReNew Power’s Chairman and MD Sumant Sinha said.
