Baringa is delighted to see RATCH Group Public Company Limited's successful signing of Share Sale Agreement for acquisition of the Nexif portfolio.

Nexif’s portfolio stretches across the Asia-Pacific region, with power generation assets in Australia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Not only is the portfolio unique in its geographical reach, it also contains operational as well as pipeline assets across solar, onshore wind, offshore wind, hydro and battery energy storage systems. With this acquisition, RATCH Group marks an important milestone in investing in and harnessing energy transition opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.

Baringa is proud to support our client RATCH Group in this acquisition through our work as the Buy-Side Market Adviser.

Baringa’s role in supporting the transaction included the provision of market advice and price projections for the Australian, Philippines and Vietnam power markets, encapsulated in comprehensive buy-side market reports.  We also provided asset-specific analysis as part of the buy-side due diligence process. Our ability to support the RATCH Group in this transaction reflects our market expertise in providing advice for complex, multi-market, multi-asset transactions.

Zhen-Hui Eng, Power Market expert for APAC – Energy & Resources at Baringa said “We are very proud to have assisted the RATCH Group, a leading market player with international ambitions, in the acquisition of the Nexif portfolio. The Asia-Pacific region stands at the forefront of demand growth, requiring new investments to enable the energy transition and the trajectory towards net zero. The scale of the challenge is massive, but so are the opportunities for the deployment of capital, and application of innovative solutions towards a more flexible and greener grid. At Baringa, we are deeply committed to these markets with our in-depth expertise, robust analysis, and extensive market insights."
