TRIG plans 250million share issue

London investor The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG) has announced plans to issue up to 250million of new shares to support its investment plans.

The company is planning to use a share issue to raise funds to invest in onshore wind and solar. The plan depends on TRIG winning support at an extraordinary general meeting, which is due on 24 November.

TRIG said it is currently evaluating schemes with an estimated value of more than £200m. TRIG was launched in 2013 and has since invested in 27 wind and solar projects with a total capacity of 398MW.

Sinovel: De-listing likely in early 2015

Sinovel has said its stock is likely to be delisted from the Shanghai stock exchange as it is set to record a third straight annual loss.

The Chinese manufacturer last week reported that its third quarter loss had halved year-on-year to 150m yuan ($25m) because of stronger sales. However, in a statement to the Shanghai Stock Exchange, it said that it still expected to make an annual loss in its full-year results due in early 2015.

The company has been dogged by problems with debt, low sales and project delays. It is also involved in legal disputes with US firm AMSC and China’s Huaneng Renewables.
