In December last year, Capman Green Energy Fund signed a deal to acquire 100% of Sevko Bulgaria from local diversified group Holding Nov Vek [BUL:6N3] for an undisclosed price. At the time, Capman Green Energy Fund said it intends to build a solar park on property owned by Sevko Bulgaria in the town of Sevlievo, in northern Bulgaria.
Subsequently, Sevko Bulgaria issued a 25 million levs bond and said that it is planning to invest the proceeds in the development of renewable energy projects and the acquisition of new land plots suitable for construction of photovoltaic parks and biomass plants.
