Renewable Energy M&A: A Closer Look at Innergex's $234mn French Transaction

published on 08 August 2023

Innergex divested a 30% interest in its French wind assets, which includes 324 MW of operational wind, a 9 MW storage system, and a 397 MW development pipeline, to Credit Agricole at an enterprise value (EV) of approximately $234mn. Just nine months prior, Innergex purchased a 30.45% interest in these operational assets from Desjardins Group for $148mn.

Enerdatics has allocated the deal's EV between the operational assets and the under-development pipeline. If operational assets are assumed to be sold at their previous acquisition value, the sale price for the 119 MW (net) pipeline in development is about $86mn or $0.7/MW. This valuation appears high for a development pipeline, suggesting a possible premium was paid on the operational assets. Enerdatics has provided a chart illustrating the EV/MW for the power capacities across both stages to clarify the valuation spectrum.
