SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc is the first listed company of its kind to invest exclusively in the energy efficiency sector. Having raised £100 million gross proceeds in its London Stock Exchange IPO in December 2018, the Company acquired its seed portfolio later that month for a total cash commitment of £87 million. Examples of the projects in the seed portfolio include Combined Cooling/Heating and Power Plants at a Citi data centre and St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, as well as LED lighting projects for hundreds of Santander properties and over 100 NCP car parks in the UK. In addition, SEEIT announced on 7 March its first acquisition in the United States comprising a 71% interest in a high-quality portfolio of eight operating CHP projects for a total cash consideration of $5 million.
SEEIT aims to deliver shareholders value through its investment in a diversified portfolio of Energy Efficiency projects which are driven by the opportunity to deliver lower cost, cleaner and more reliable energy solutions to end users of energy.
SEEIT is targeting an attractive total return for shareholders of 7-8 per cent. per annum (net of fees and expenses and by reference to the initial issue price of £1.00 per Ordinary Share), with a stable dividend income, capital preservation and the opportunity for capital growth.
