RIO DE JANEIRO, April 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vinci Partners Investments Ltd. (NASDAQ: VINP) ("Vinci Partners, the "Company," "we," "us," or "our"), the controlling company of a leading alternative investment platform in Brazil, announced today that Vinci Energia FIP-IE, or VIGT, Vinci Partners' infrastructure core plus listed vehicle, managed by Vinci Partners' Infrastructure team, committed to its final acquisition from the proceeds of the capital raise in January 2021.
VIGT is a listed fund, and a quasi-perpetual vehicle, focused on acquiring yield-generating power transmission assets in Brazil. The fund concluded its second issue of quotas in January 2021, raising R$ 404 million, and reaching a market capitalization of approximately R$ 750 million as of March 31, 2021.
Since the offering's closing, the team has announced two relevant transactions for the fund's portfolio, concluding the capital allocation for this offering in approximately three months: the acquisition of a wind energy portfolio, composed of three assets ("Mangue Seco 1, 3 and 4"), which has already closed, and a binding strategic partnership with Sterlite Brasil, a power transmission company, to acquire part of their portfolio of power transmission assets.
José Guilherme Souza, partner and Head of Infrastructure for Vinci Partners, said, "Our team is very pleased with the turnout from our previous capital raise for VIGT. After a successful follow-on offering in January 2021, we were able to finalize, in a short period of time, the allocation of the capital raise proceeds. The fund invested in high-quality assets, aligned with the fund's strategy of building a diversified portfolio of yield-generating power transmission mature assets for our investors. The partnership with Sterlite Brasil also included additional three assets for our pipeline of acquisitions, which can be eventually added to the fund with a follow-on offering for VIGT."
