Net Asset Value and Dividend Announcement

Net Asset Value

JLEN, the listed environmental infrastructure fund, announces that its unaudited Net Asset Value as at 30 June 2021 is GBP577.1million (96.0 pence per share), an increase of 3.8 pence per share since 31 March 2021. The increase is a reflection of an upward revision of the power price forecasts and above forecast inflation during the period, in addition to an accretive share issuance in May 2021.

Portfolio update

For the quarter to 30 June 2021, generation for the solar portfolio was above target, attributed to higher than average solar irradiation early in the quarter.

The anaerobic digestion portfolio also performed ahead of target, continuing its trend of out performance.

The wind portfolio performed below generation targets due to poor wind resource in the UK over the quarter although the assets experienced generally little downtime during the period.

Bio Collectors, a food waste fed processing plant, continues to see lower levels of commercial food waste collections due to the pandemic. However, feedstock levels have increased to higher levels post the quarter end.

In aggregate, the renewables portfolio saw generation below target. However, projects have benefited from increased revenue due to high power prices over the quarter and many of the projects also benefitted from a high level of fixed revenue over the short to medium term.

Dividend

The Company also announces a quarterly interim dividend of 1.70 pence per share for the quarter ended 30 June 2021, in line with the dividend target of 6.80p per share for the year to 31 March 2022, as set out in the 2021 Annual Report.
