. 11/30/2021 | 05:21am EST Message : TO ACCELERATE RENEWABLE ENERGY GROWTH IN FOCUS MARKETS Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has successfully completed the divestment of 100% stake in its wholly owned subsidiary, TNB Power Daharki Ltd (TPD) (which in turn owns 100% stake in TNB Liberty Power Limited (LPL)) to AsiaPak Investments Limited (AsiaPak), a private investment company based in Pakistan and Hong Kong, for a total consideration of USD54.5 million. TPD is the holding company of LPL which owns and operates a 235MW combined-cycle gas turbine power plant that was commissioned 20 years ago in 2001, with a power purchase agreement expiring in September 2026. The asset, located in Sindh province, Pakistan, was one of TNB's first international ventures. TPD's divestment, right after the divestment of TNB's compulsorily convertible debentures in India last August, marks another significant step in TNB's strategy to streamline its international portfolio by prioritising growth of renewable energy (RE) in TNB's focus markets such as the United Kingdom (UK), Europe and Southeast Asia (SEA). It also stems from TNB's initiatives to seek monetisation options for its assets in non-focus markets and redeploy the proceeds into growing TNB's overall RE portfolio. This strengthens TNB's shift to widen and deepen its sustainability initiatives by accelerating international RE business growth which in turn serves as the pathfinder for green technologies that TNB can adopt in Malaysia. "The divestment of TPD and LPL manifests one of the planned strategic initiatives for TNB to focus on its growth markets while delivering on its global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) vision," said TNB's President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Datuk Ir. Baharin Din. "We have recently announced our Sustainability Pathway, a blueprint with an aspiration to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. The Pathway is underpinned by our commitment to reduce 35% of TNB's emissions intensity as well as 50% of our coal generation capacity by 2035." Baharin stated that the divestment, amid a challenging economic environment aggravated by Covid- 19, is a clear demonstration of TNB's resilience and drive to preserve the value of the company's investments. In addition, it will move TNB a step closer to transitioning towards a new energy future of low-carbongeneration consistent with its Sustainability Pathway and overall ESG vision. Page 1 of 3 S.A. 2021/11/141 (HQ) Acknowledging the learnings accumulated from the investment and subsequent divestment of TPD and LPL, he said, "Throughout the process, we have gained extensive and valuable experience in developing and operating a greenfield asset in an emerging country. The on-the-ground experience has indeed provided us with substantial in-house expertise, backed by a clear understanding on what it takes to pursue greenfield development and operate assets in foreign markets and challenging environments. We intend to draw upon these learnings for our future greenfield developments in other focus markets." Shaheryar Chishty, AsiaPak's Chief Executive Officer meanwhile said, "It was a privilege to have partnered with TNB on this transaction. Our shared goal in completing this divestment played a significant role in ensuring the success of this transaction. Furthermore, we are confident that TNB's stewardship of LPL over the years has preserved the quality of LPL's operational performance and benefited all of LPL's stakeholders."
