Since 1990 Mirabaud has offered a wide range of services for public and private companies. Its services include equity research, capital markets, corporate advisory as well as institutional brokerage.
Mirabaud acted as exclusive financial advisor to Soltec in the successful €100m. corporate financing, which will allow the Company to gradually become an Independent Power Producer (IPP) and switch into a vertically integrated business model in the solar PV sector.
Founded in 2004, Soltec has become an industrial leader in the solar PV sector, adapting its industrial business model to a vertically integrated IPP in order to maximise its value creation.
Soltec is comprised of three business lines participating in the entire value chain of the solar PV business:
After a successful IPO in October 2020 (€140m), Soltec has achieved c.€550m annual revenues, +1,300 employees and operates globally, mainly in Europe and America.

Soltec, a leading renewable energy Spanish listed company, signed a €100m. financing agreement with an international investor to fund and accelerate the growth of its asset management division, dedicated to the investment, operation and management of renewable energy assets.
The funds will be invested in the construction and operation of c.1 GW of projects internally developed by its development division, mainly in Europe (Spain and Italy) and America (Brazil).
This financing allows Soltec to gradually become an IPP and switch into a vertically integrated business model, while providing it with the necessary funds to continue with its ambitious roadmap for the coming years that will focus on business growth, stable cash flow generation and value creation to the whole Group.
Soltec mandated Mirabaud to seek either a corporate bond issue or a private placement to partially financing equity needs for the construction of c.1 GW. The process raised strong interest in the private market, with national and international investors.
We are pleased to have completed this deal with a leading quoted company like Soltec and played a role in their ambitious growth plans. With this transaction, the Company strengthens its goal of converting its business into a vertical integrated IPP (Independent Power Producer) player of relevance in the renewable energy sector. We helped to secure the advantageous financing terms that have been obtained. At Mirabaud, we are committed to supporting our clients over the long term and look forward to the next stage of Soltec’s impressive roadmap.
