Pinnacle Renewable Energy To Be Acquired By Drax Group

Pinnacle Renewable Energy Inc. has entered into an arrangement agreement with Drax Group and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Drax Canadian Holdings Inc., pursuant to which Drax will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Pinnacle in an all-cash transaction valued at C$831 million, including the assumption of net debt and Pinnacle’s non-controlling interests in its joint ventures.

Duncan Davies, Pinnacle’s CEO, says, “Pinnacle’s Board of Directors has unanimously determined that the transaction represents the best course of action for the company and its shareholders. On closing, the transaction will deliver immediate, significant and certain cash value to our shareholders. At the same time, the combination of Pinnacle and Drax will create a global leader in sustainable biomass with the vision, technical expertise and financial strength to help meet the growing demand for renewable energy products around the world.”

The several minority partnerships Pinnacle has in place with sawmill companies appear to remain under the proposed acquisition.
