BlackRock Real Assets, together with Mubadala, shall invest Rs 4,000 crore (USD 525 million) by way of equity/compulsorily convertible instruments for a 10.53 per cent stake in Tata Power Renewables, translating to a base equity valuation of Rs 34,000 crore,” it said. According to the statement, the first round of capital infusion is expected to be completed by June 2022 and the balance funds will be infused by the end of the ongoing calendar year.

Moelis & Company is the financial advisor to Tata Power, while JP Morgan is the financial advisor to BlackRock Real Assets. Tata Power Renewables is one of the largest renewable energy companies in India. Its vertically integrated operations have about 4.9 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy assets. The proposed investment is expected to fund Tata Power Renewables’ aggressive growth plans.

Over the next five years, Tata Power Renewables aims to achieve a portfolio of over 20 GW of renewables assets and a market-leading position in the rooftop and electric vehicle charging space across India, Tata Power said. Tata Power CEO and Managing Director Praveer Sinha said, “I am delighted to welcome BlackRock Real Assets and Mubadala to join us to take the renewables business to the next level of growth. The collaboration will support us to pursue exciting opportunities that lie ahead in the coming decades.”

Anne Valentine Andrews, BlackRock’s Global Head of Real Assets, said: “Tata Power Renewables is at the forefront of India’s ambition to secure greater energy stability for its citizens while positioning its economy for a low carbon future.”

Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi, Chief Executive Officer, Real Estate and Infrastructure Investments at Mubadala, said: “Mubadala has a strong focus on renewable energy in multiple markets, so we are delighted to be co-investing with BlackRock Real Assets to help progress Tata Power Renewables’ ambitions in India. We are proud to show our ongoing commitment to India with this investment and look forward to working with Tata Power to capitalize on the growth opportunities ahead.” PTI ABI
