Net Asset Value and Factsheet

 

The Board of Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust plc (the "Company" or "ORIT") announces that the unaudited net asset value ("NAV") of the Company as at 31 March 2021 on a cum-income basis was £340.9 million or 97.39 pence per ordinary share.

 

The Company's NAV per ordinary share has decreased by 0.87 pence per share since 31 December 2020. This small reduction was driven primarily by Company expenses, dividends paid, assumption of a short term increase in the UK corporation tax rate and movements in the GBP EUR FX rate in the quarter. These movements were partially offset by an increase in short term power price forecasts and a reduction in the discount rate to reflect the lower construction risk premium on the Company's Swedish portfolio, as grid connection and mechanical completion have been achieved on schedule, along with the expected return on the portfolio.
