Actis buys controlling stake In Omega Energia

The largest publicly traded pure renewable energy generation firm in Latin America, Omega Energia, has sold a notable portion of its shares to Actis, a major global investor in sustainable infrastructure. Actis also inked a shareholder agreement with Omega Energia’s founders to join the controlling block.

Omega, a major player in Brazil’s renewable energy market, has a ten-year track record of developing, acquiring, and managing wind, solar, and hydroelectric facilities throughout the nation. Since its IPO in 2017, the company has increased its operating capacity seven times, to 1.9 GW now.

Actis is eager to collaborate with Omega’s founders and will offer extensive industry knowledge and new equity funding to support the creation of a unique growth pipeline that will position Omega as a pioneer in the Energy Transition market throughout the Americas.

The first Actis Energy 5 investment in the Americas, the Omega acquisition, was designed as a private equity investment, entailing the negotiation of governance rights to join the controlling shareholders on the Board and the purchase of shares through both secondary and primary capital tranche transactions.
