Dutch Green Business Group N.V. (Euronext: DGB, “DGB” or “the Group”), a leading reforestation and carbon offsetting company, announces the launch of a €4.5 million capital raise via a placement of a convertible loan note.
Investors in this green impact bond will receive a return of 6% per annum and the notes convert into DGB equity shares on 30 September 2025 at a price of €2.00. The current DGB share price is €1.13.
DGB invests, manages and develops projects to generate nature compensation in the form of biodiversity offsets and carbon offsets, which are sold to businesses and consumers.
Proceeds from this green impact bond will be invested in the Group’s project pipeline. The Group has a pipeline of 9 projects in 10 different locations around the world and forecasts to generate over 6 million tons of carbon offsets in the second half of 2021.
DGB currently holds over 155,000 tons of carbon offsets on its balance sheet. After developing its project pipeline and not generating any revenue during the first half period, the Group has started to generate revenue in the recent quarter as businesses and individuals are offsetting their carbon emissions through DGB.
Selwyn Duijvestijn, Chief Executive of DGB Group, said: “We are delighted with indications of support for this green impact bond raise as it reflects the shared confidence that we and our investors have in the business. We are providing a credible green investment opportunity that is easy to understand and which delivers impactful improvements on the ground.”
