Brussels, 30 Augustus 2016

Korys, together with Corporación Masaveu, a group of Portuguese investors and Exus Management Partners, acquired Borawind before the summer, a 330 MW onshore wind portfolio previously belonging to Bridgepoint.

This portfolio of two operational assets (La Boga, 280.5 MW and Marmellar, 49.5 MW), made of 8 wind farms, is located in the region of Burgos, North of Madrid. It will be managed by Exus Management Partners.

With this investment, Korys complements the strategic mix of its renewable energy portfolio. Our current portfolio now includes Parkwind, a company active in offshore wind with a significant stake in 3 Belgian windfarms, Eurowatt, a company essentially active in onshore wind with assets in France (predominantly), Spain, Portugal and Poland and a participation in Voltalia, a listed renewable energy company active in France and emerging markets, currently for the most part in Brazil. This latest investment brings our total exposure to renewable energy production capacity to around 1.5 GW (gross).
