Foresight Solar Fund Limited, a fund investing in a diversified portfolio of ground-based solar PV and battery storage assets in the UK and internationally, announces that it has made an application for 994,402 New Ordinary Shares of no par value in the Company ("New Shares") to be admitted to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA") and to trading on the London Stock Exchange. It is expected that these New Shares will be admitted to trading on or around 27 August 2021.
The application is being made pursuant to the scrip dividend alternative in lieu of cash for the interim dividend for the period from 1 January 2021 to 31 March 2021. Elections for a scrip dividend were received in respect of 9.57% of the Ordinary Shares in issue as at the record date of 30 July 2021. When issued, these New Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares.
Following admission of the New Shares, the Company's issued share capital will consist of Ordinary Shares of no par value each. With effect from 27 August 2021, the total number of issued shares with voting rights will be 609,773,916.
The above figure of 609,773,916 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or of a change to their interest in, Foresight Solar Fund Limited under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
