CEO, TerraForm Power, Inc.

Now I’ll spend a few minutes discussing the merger with Brookfield Renewable. I’m very pleased to report that last evening, Brookfield Renewable and TerraForm Power entered into a definitive merger agreement by which Brookfield Renewable will acquire each share of Class A common stock of TerraForm Power for consideration equivalent to 0.381 of Brookfield Renewable Power -- Renewable Partners unit. TerraForm Power shareholders can elect to receive their consideration in units of Brookfield Renewable Partners or BEP, a limited partnership, which currently trades on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange or shares of Brookfield Renewable Corporation, or BEPC a new security that will be launched in conjunction with the close of the merger that is designed to be equivalent and valued to a unit of BEP.

For reference, BEPC will be a Canadian corporation listed on the TSX and the NYSE and will be structured with the intention of being economically equivalent to BEP units, including identical distributions and it will be fully exchangeable at any time at the shareholders’ option for a BEP unit on a one-for-one basis.

The special committee of TERP’s Board of Directors has unanimously recommended the transaction, which features an improved exchange ratio relative to Brookfield Renewable’s initial proposed offer in January of 0.36 units of BEP for each TERP share and provides a 17% premium to TERP’s unaffected share price. The transaction is subject to the approval of TERP shareholders representing a majority of the outstanding TERP Class A common shares not owned by Brookfield Renewable and its affiliates and is also subject to other customary closing conditions. It is expected that the transaction will close in the third quarter of 2020.

Now I want to take a moment and highlight the benefits of this merger to TERP shareholders. TERP shareholders will be owners of a combined company that will be one of the largest integrated pure-play renewable power companies in the world, with total assets of approximately $50 billion and with a 20-year track record of delivering strong total returns across a number of economic cycles as well as consistent distribution growth.

In addition, TERP’s shareholders will benefit from the premium of 17% to TERP’s unaffected stock price. A broader growth mandate that includes acquisitions of all technologies of renewable power assets as well as development opportunities globally, enhanced diversification through exposure to long life hydro assets in addition to wind and solar assets as well as geographic exposure to the high-growth Asian and Latin American markets in addition to North America and Europe. Reduced risk as a result of Brookfield Renewable’s strong investment grade balance sheet and increased liquidity as well as finally, continued sponsorship by Brookfield Asset Management, which will own 54% of the combined company.

In closing, we believe this merger provides significant value for TERP’s shareholders giving them the ability to continue participating in the upside of TERP’s operating assets in developed markets while benefiting from Brookfield Renewable’s enhanced diversification, development capabilities and strong investment-grade balance sheet. We encourage shareholders to vote for the transaction at the shareholder meeting, details of which will be announced in due course.

At closing, TerraForm Power will be a subsidiary of Brookfield Renewable. So its corporate debt will remain in place as well as the project debt underneath the corporate debt. At this point, I’m not aware of any plans to refinance that corporate debt.
