Foley Hoag advised CleanCapital LLC in a $250 million equity funding partnership with CarVal Investors.
The new partnership will enable CleanCapital to accelerate and expand its project acquisition efforts and augment its focus on defining clean energy as an investment-ready opportunity.
Founded in New York in 2015, CleanCapital offers a proprietary platform that streamlines and expedites due diligence of energy projects, connecting creditworthy sellers with an immediate bid on their projects. The company leads all due diligence and acquisition closing processes on behalf of investment partners, significantly decreasing the time required to achieve a deal closing. CleanCapital then aggregates projects into larger investment-ready portfolios, providing efficient capital and a competitive acquisition price for assets. The company, led by Thomas Byrne and Jonathan Powers is based in Pleasantville (NY).
CarVal Investors, founded in 1987, is a leading global alternative investment manager focused on direct investments in real estate, loan portfolios, corporate securities, and special opportunities such as debt and equity for power projects.
