Result of Capital Raise

Greencoat UK Wind plc (the "Company" or "UKW"), the leading listed renewable infrastructure fund, invested in operating UK wind farms, today announces the result of the Placing as announced on 1 February 2019.

Highlights

§ Gross Issue Proceeds of £131 million

§ 102,946,483 New Ordinary Shares will be issued, increasing total Ordinary Shares to 1,234,668,373

§ Net proceeds will be used to repay or reduce future draw downs under the Company's revolving credit facility

Commenting on the announcement, Tim Ingram, Chairman of UKW, said: "We are grateful for the continued support from our shareholders, which has led to another oversubscribed equity capital raise and is reflective of the strong demand for UKW's attractive investment returns, proven track record and simple, low risk model."

Following the receipt of Net Issue Proceeds and completion of the Stronelairg and Dunmaglass acquisitions, UKW should have £794 million of outstanding debt (of which £400 million is long term debt), which would be equal to approximately 34% of Gross Asset Value.
