VoltaGrid Secures Long-Term Capital Via a Combination of $550 Million Term Loan and $210 Million of Equity

HOUSTON, March 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VoltaGrid LLC, together with its strategic capital partners from Kennedy Lewis Investment Management, Blue Torch Capital, and CPPIB Credit Investments Inc., a wholly-owned affiliate of CPP Investments, are pleased to announce the closing of a $500 million five-year senior secured term loan facility, which comes with an additional $50 million accordion feature

In conjunction with the Term Loan Facility, the Company has entered into a revised senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) that provides immediate access to $100 million and up to $150 million under certain conditions. The Credit Facility includes support from BMO Capital Markets, The Toronto-Dominion Bank, National Bank of Canada, Scotiabank and Cadence Bank.

Lastly, VoltaGrid is pleased to announce the closing of its follow-on equity raise of $210 million, which closed in the third quarter of 2023 and included investments from Longbow Capital Inc. (“Longbow”), CPP Investments and other strategic equity investors.

Nathan Ough, President & CEO of VoltaGrid commented, “Our business has grown exponentially over the last twelve months. We successfully completed the deployment of approximately 300 MWs of power generation capacity for a total of 570 MWs currently and have secured our supply chain access to an incremental 500 MWs that we anticipate deploying in 2024 and early 2025. In addition, we have commissioned and now operate five CNG terminals across the U.S. with 90,000 MMBtu/d CNG capacity, including the largest CNG terminal in the Permian Basin, and demonstrated the flexibility and applicability of our integrated mobile power platform across multiple industries, including:

  • Mobile power supply of up to 40 MW per deployment for electric completions for several of the largest oil and gas producers in America;
  • Base load power for a behind-the-fence power plant in the Permian basin;
  • Base load power for an ultra-low emissions mining project in Arizona; and
  • Back-up power for a large-scale municipal grid reinforcement project.

These projects have leveraged our common power generation platform to provide low carbon, low cost, reliable power with an integrated CNG supply chain that can be rapidly deployed for temporary, semi-permanent and permanent applications.

With the recently completed investments in VoltaGrid and our robust pipeline of growth projects, we see line of sight to more than doubling the Company in size in the next twelve months through an expansion in datacenters, electric completions, microgrids, utility support, emergency relief and mining. We are excited to partner with strategic long-term institutional investors in CPP Investments, Kennedy Lewis, Longbow, and Blue Torch and look forward to growing our partnership.”
