Investec acted as NOMAD, Sole Broker, Financial Adviser and Sole Bookrunner to ITM Power plc (ITM) on its £172m equity raise
Investec acted as Sole Broker, Bookrunner, Financial Adviser and NOMAD to ITM on its transformational fundraise.
Investec leveraged the extensive non-deal roadshows conducted over the last 12 months to introduce a significant number of new, tier one global institutions onto the company’s shareholder register, whilst also protecting existing holders’ positions.
The fundraise drew demand from UK, US and European funds, including a number of ESG focused investors and was materially oversubscribed, resulting in a decision to up-size the raise by 10%.
The equity raise was structured around a £30m cornerstone investment and transformational strategic partnership with Snam S.p.A, the world’s second largest energy infrastructure operator in the world. This agreement includes a 100MW preferred supplier commitment to 2025, representing a doubling of ITM Power’s existing backlog.
The fund raise positions ITM to capitalise on its market leading electrolysis capabilities at a time of rapid market growth and growing global adoption of hydrogen as a key element of the drive to carbon neutrality.

Following the strategic investment and partnership with Linde plc in 2019, this is the 2nd transformational deal that the Company has undertaken with Investec as Sole Bookrunner, and the 3rd equity raise Investec has assisted on since 2017.
