| Leave a Comment | Markets

Shares of JSW Energy rose 4% in early trade on September 11, 2023, after news reports that private equity investors TPG, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), and Brookfield are in advanced talks to acquire a minority stake in JSW Neo Energy, a subsidiary of listed JSW Energy.

The PE trio is planning to acquire a 20-30% stake in JSW Neo Energy, which is valued at around $2.5 billion. The deal is expected to be finalized in the coming weeks.

JSW Group aims to raise up to $500 million from the stake sale, which will be used to fund its renewable energy expansion plans. The company has set a target of achieving 10 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2025 and 20 GW by 2030.

JSW Neo Energy is a platform for JSW Group to consolidate its renewable energy assets. The company recently acquired 1.75 GW of renewable energy capacity from Mytrah Energy, making it one of the largest renewable energy players in India.

The investment by PE firms in JSW Neo Energy is a vote of confidence in the Indian renewable energy sector. The sector is growing rapidly, and there is a strong demand for clean energy. The investment is also a sign that global investors are bullish on India’s growth prospects.

The stake sale will help JSW Energy to raise much-needed funds to expand its renewable energy portfolio. The company has set ambitious targets for its operational power generation capacity, and the investment will help it to achieve these targets.

The investment is also likely to boost the share price of JSW Energy. The stock has been underperforming the market in recent months, and the investment could help to improve investor sentiment.

Overall, the investment by PE firms in JSW Neo Energy is a positive development for the Indian renewable energy sector. It is a sign of confidence in the sector’s growth prospects and it will help JSW Energy to expand its renewable energy portfolio.
