NESF is a specialist investment company that invests in operating solar power plants in the UK.  Its objective is to secure attractive shareholder returns through RPI-linked dividends and long-term capital growth.  The Company achieves this by acquiring solar power plants on agricultural, industrial and commercial sites.

NESF has raised equity proceeds of £586m since its initial public offering on the main market of the London Stock Exchange in April 2014.  It also has credit facilities of £269.8m in place (£150m from a syndicate including MIDIS, NAB and CBA; MIDIS: £54.3m; Bayerische Landesbank: £43.8m; and NIBC: £21.7m).
