Atlanta, GA and Waregem, Belgium - July 9, 2010 -


Enfinity, the global renewable energy project developer, announced today that the company is receiving a two-stage capital increase of $56 million (45 million Euros). The new capital is intended to support Enfinity's growth strategy.

The capital will be directed to Enfinity in two phases:

In the first phase, $24 million (19 million Euros) in cash will be injected by current shareholder Waterland and a small group of investors represented by Marc Coucke (CEO, Omega Pharma). In addition, operational solar parks in Spain and Italy will be brought into the business by the investors for a value of $21million (17 million Euros). These parks were originally developed by Enfinity and represent a capacity of 10.7 MWp.

Mr. Coucke will join the Board of Directors as a representative of the investor group.

In the second phase, Enfinity founders Patrick De Cuyper and Gino Van Neer will inject another $11 million (9 million Euros) in additional capital through a contribution of existing operational solar parks in Belgium.

Enfinity Group CEO Steven De Tollenaere said, "Enfinity is experiencing huge growth at the international level. We will continue building on our strong team and reinforce our solid company structure so that we can continue with our global growth strategy. With this investment, the current shareholders confirm their confidence in the future of commercial renewable energy and Enfinity's role in that future."

In Atlanta, Enfinity Americas CEO Rafael Dobrzynski said, "The outlook for commercial solar energy is very positive. The business case for renewable energy has been proven, offering investors and commercial consumers tangible financial benefits. This latest capital injection will allow Enfinity to consolidate its position as the go-to resource for developing, financing and building solar energy throughout the Americas".
