White & Case LLP has advised ARCH Emerging Markets Partners Limited (ARCH) on the transaction.
ARCH Emerging Markets Partners Limited (ARCH) executed its investment in CrossBoundary Energy, one of Sub-Saharan Africa’s leading providers of fully financed commercial & industrial (C&I) solar solutions.
Launched in 2015, CrossBoundary Energy is a leading sub-Saharan Africa investment platform for C&I solar assets. CrossBoundary Energy’s solar-as-a-service model allows corporate customers to avoid the upfront capital expenditure and technical risk that can be a barrier to solar adoption. Instead, customers enter into long-term solar service agreements under which CrossBoundary Energy (in partnership with local developers and solar contractors) finances, installs and operates solar assets to provide customers with cleaner and cheaper power.
Founded in 2018, ARCH is an emerging markets investment advisory firm specialising in private equity opportunities with a focus on energy and logistics in developing economies. Through its dedicated Africa Renewable Power Fund, ARCH’s mission is to create long term value for its stakeholders while addressing the African market’s growing demand for bankable, de-risked electricity generation.
The White & Case team in London which advised ARCH on the transaction was led by partner Ken Barry (Picture) and included associate Oji Adoh.
