Monday, Omega Energia announced that Actis LLP will acquire 10 percent of its capital stock for about 770 million Brazilian reals ($147 million).

According to a regulatory filing, Tarpon Investimentos, which has a controlling stake in Omega, offered call options to Actis to purchase shares at a price of 13.50 Brazilian reals per share.

Once Actis takes a 10% stake in the company, a new shareholders agreement will go into effect, including the British firm into Omega's controlling group.

Actis and Omega have also entered into an investment agreement that might require Actis to spend around 850 million Brazilian reals in Omega. Actis would acquire up to 16 reais per share of new Omega stock via a capital raise.

Omega said the capital increase might take place between October 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023.

Omega disclosed in the same filing that it had signed a letter of intent for a potential $500 million investment with an unidentified U.S. partner.

This financing would be utilized towards the development or acquisition of renewable energy projects in the United States.
