Marburg, Germany, 29 November 2019 – 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN: DE0005167902), has acquired more than 40 % of the limited partners’ shares in Windpark Roge GmbH & Co. Betriebs-KG and 100 % of the general partner Windpark Roge GmbH, and will also take over the management and operation of the wind farm from the 2020 financial year. The wind farm built in 2000 and 2001 in the district of Rostock (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania) consists of eight wind turbines with a total capacity of 14.4 MW and its own transformer station. The wind farm produces an average of around 20,000 MWh of climate-friendly electricity per year, equivalent to the annual consumption of 6,700 households. The share purchase agreements stipulate 01.01.2020 as the economic effective date for the transfer of the shares. The transaction amounting to around EUR 1.5 million will lead to full consolidation of the wind farm in the consolidated financial statements of 3U HOLDING AG from the 2020 financial year. 3U HOLDING AG will thus increase its capacity for electricity generation from renewable energies to around 60 MW.
“Our renewable energies segment continues to make a pleasing contribution to the Group’s earnings and cash flow,” explains Michael Schmidt, CEO of 3U HOLDING AG. “Even in the context of our increasing strategic focus on cloud computing and e-commerce, we are of course completing those acquisition projects in the renewable energies segment that have already been developed over the long term and are economically viable within the Group. And we plan to use the resulting income and value potential in the medium term to finance our strategic projects in the megatrends of cloud computing and e-commerce.”
