Green Era executed the acquisition with an all-cash for shares consideration of USD 440 million, acquiring 250,801 shares, representing 33.33% of all shares issued and paid up in Star Energy.

Nancy Pangestu, Managing Director of Green Era, commented: "This acquisition is a major milestone to effectively launch Green Era's exciting growth and investment plans moving forward. We're acquiring a solid geothermal asset, with a proven track record and renewable technology, to achieve clean, sustainable, and profitable growth. We are grateful for the support of Bangkok Bank to execute this transaction successfully. In the Star Energy leadership, we have in place a solid team of professionals with an outstanding track record of success. We are incredibly excited to be a part of their growth story, and to play a key role in the carbon reduction equation."

The acquisition is the first in Green Era's M&A strategy which is designed to accelerate growth in renewables across Southeast Asia, to support the global transition to net zero.

These projects and investments have the potential to generate up to 870,000 jobs.
