November 27, 2023 - The TD Greystone Infrastructure Fund1 (the "Fund") has acquired the remaining minority interest in Rabbalshede Kraft ("Rabbalshede") giving the Fund a one hundred percent equity interest effective October 12, 2023. TD Asset Management Inc. ("TDAM") manages the Fund, which is an open-ended infrastructure fund that invests in long-term, essential infrastructure assets globally.
"Rabbalshede represents an important part of our portfolio, providing long-term stable cash flow, growth and diversification for our clients," says Jeff Mouland, Managing Director and Head of Global Infrastructure Investments at TDAM. "The Fund has continued to increase its ownership of Rabbalshede since the initial investment in 2017, and we were excited to have this opportunity to acquire the remaining shares."
Founded in 2005, Rabbalshede is an established and long-term player in renewable energy in Sweden with a strategic focus that has shifted from being a pure wind power company, to becoming a versatile renewable energy company that also develops solar energy, green hydrogen production, and battery storage.
The Fund made its first investment in Rabbalshede in 2017, and has continued to support its growth, acquiring a majority interest in 2021 and consolidating its ownership prior to this final acquisition of the remaining minority interest.
"The Fund continues to benefit from changes tied to the energy transition taking place worldwide," continues Mouland, "and we look forward to supporting the growth of Rabbalshede from a Swedish wind operator to a more diversified energy solution business across the Nordic region."
Rabbalshede currently has a total operating capacity of 469 MW across 21 wind projects, a further wind development pipeline of 580 MW, and is actively looking at diversifying its presence by geography in addition to expanding into solar, green hydrogen and battery storage.
"This strategic investment in Rabbalshede offers a scalable growth platform, portfolio diversification, and a diversified revenue base," concludes Mouland. "It is an excellent example of our team's ability to expand and grow the Fund's portfolio globally in essential infrastructure."
