Environmentally responsible investment

Executive summary

Illyrian Power has been formed to finance the acquisition of renewable projects in Central Europe with an initial focus on Slovenia. These projects have become available due to business restructurings with banks and investors having to restructure their investment. In most cases the assets are capable of generating income either immediately or in the short term and can be acquired at a discount. Loans made by Illyrian will usually be to businesses that can produce economically stable and renewable power.

Illyrian is currently reviewing a series of investments and is initially concentrating on existing built and developed biogas power plants in Slovenia.

Objective

The objective of Illyrian Power is to achieve a return for investors in the form of income generation on the provision of loans. Illyrian aims to generate stable and secure income for Preference Shareholders by investing in renewable energy power production.

Initial positions in biomass and biogas plants are intended to be supplemented with diversified investments in other types of energy projects including tidal, solar and wind.
