Paris – 23 May 2022 – Euronext today congratulates Lhyfe, an independent producer of green hydrogen to reduce carbon emissions in the transportation and industry fields, on its listing on Compartment B of Euronext’s regulated market in Paris (ticker code: LHYFE).
Based in Nantes and specialising in the production of green and local hydrogen, Lhyfe is a leading French “pure-player” in 100% renewable hydrogen for the decarbonisation of mobility and industry. Lhyfe is already present in 10 European countries where the company designs, develops and operates its green hydrogen production sites (93 plants planned to date). By listing on Euronext, Lhyfe intends to accelerate the development of its production sites across Europe, to strengthen its business development and engineering teams in the Group's target geographies and to pursue its investments, in particular those related to the development of green hydrogen production sites at sea. By 2030, Lhyfe aims to be a European leader in green hydrogen production, with a total installed capacity of more than 3 GW, and to transform the current energy model into a more sustainable one.
Lhyfe was listed through the admission to trading on 23 May 2022 of the 46,947,730 shares making up its equity, and of 12,571,429 new shares issued under a Global Offering, before exercise of the over-allotment option.
The admission and issue price Lhyfe shares was set at €8.75 per share. Market capitalisation was €410 million on the day of listing. The Initial Public Offering (IPO) raised €110 million altogether. Six bonds convertible into shares will be converted automatically on the settlement date of the offer for a total amount of €47.8 million and will give rise to the issue of 15,039,401 additional new shares.
The Offering was a success with international institutional and individual investors. The Global Placement was oversubscribed 1.32 times at the Offer price and the Open Price Public Offering was oversubscribed 1.31 times.
Matthieu Guesné, CEO of Lhyfe, said: “It is with great enthusiasm and ambition that we celebrate today our IPO on Euronext, a new historical step in the development of Lhyfe. The demand for green hydrogen will strongly increase over the next few years and Lhyfe aims to become a leader in green hydrogen production in Europe. Therefore, we are now launching a new phase of Lhyfe's development to promote the production of environmentally friendly and accessible hydrogen throughout Europe. Let's act quickly and together for a bright future... Everyone can contribute.”
