Brookfield Renewable today announced that, together with its institutional partners, it has entered into agreements with Terraform Power (NASDAQ:TERP) and TerraForm Global (NASDAQ:GLBL) pursuant to which it will acquire a 51% interest in TerraForm Power, which is expected to remain a Nasdaq-listed public company sponsored by Brookfield Asset Management, and 100% of the outstanding shares of TerraForm Global.
Assuming the completion of both transactions, Brookfield Renewable's commitment would be in the range of $500 million, which it expects to fund through current liquidity.
The transactions are each expected to be completed in the second half of 2017 and are each subject to certain closing conditions, including but not limited to: approval by the majority of Class A shareholders of TerraForm Power and TerraForm Global, respectively (excluding Class A shares owned by Brookfield and SunEdison Inc.), regulatory approvals, and certain approvals from the US bankruptcy court overseeing the SunEdison Chapter 11 bankruptcy case. The closing of each transaction is not conditional on the other.
