Milan, 9 June 2022 – Eni Plenitude S.p.A., Società Benefit (the “Company,” the “Group” or “Plenitude”), today announces its intention to launch an initial public offering (the “IPO”) for the listing of its ordinary shares (the “Shares”) on Euronext Milan, a regulated market organized and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A. (“Euronext Milan”).
Plenitude is a company currently 100% controlled by Eni S.p.A. (“Eni” or the “Selling Shareholder”), an integrated business combining the generation of electricity from renewables, the sale of electricity, gas and energy services to households and businesses, and a European network of charging points for electric vehicles ("e-mobility”).
As of 31st March 2022, Plenitude had an installed renewables generation capacity of c.1.4 GW¹ and a pipeline of renewables projects of over 10 GW1, a retail portfolio of c.10 million clients and an electric vehicle charging network of c.7,300 proprietary installed charging points (excluding inter-operational charging points). For the twelve months ended 31st December 2021, Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Flow from Operations (“CFFO”) were €0.6 billion2 and €0.4 billion2 respectively.
The Company will leverage an integrated, OECD-focused, diversified portfolio of assets with a stable and increasing customer base. The cash flows from the retail business area will underpin the growth of the business, with the Company having sufficient leverage capacity to independently achieve its targets through a strong balance sheet and an investment-grade profile. Sustainability is at the core of Plenitude as it plans to achieve Net Zero scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 2040.
Eni considers the IPO an important step in the development of Plenitude. The IPO will enable the Company to diversify its ownership structure, create a long-term shareholder base, access competitive funding, consolidate its positioning and develop more quickly while creating sustainable value for all stakeholders.
Eni intends to retain a majority stake following the IPO and is committed to continue supporting Plenitude.
