Coro Energy Plc, the South East Asian energy company with a natural gas and clean energy portfolio, announces that it has entered into a revised Heads of Terms with the shareholders of KIMY Trading and Service JSC, following its due diligence process, in respect of the potential 3.25 megawatts acquisition, announced on 25 November 2022.


As announced on 25 November 2022, the Company entered into a period of exclusivity on a 100% interest in a leased rooftop solar portfolio in Vietnam across four locations close to Saigon with an aggregate generating capacity of 3.25 megawatts currently held by KIMY. The Portfolio has been operational for two years and benefits from an existing power purchase agreement with a remaining eighteen-year term, with the power off-taker being state-owned Electricity Vietnam (EVN).

Following due diligence and site visits, legal work on the final transaction documents is now underway. The Company has renegotiated some elements of the Heads of Terms with the vendor to reflect some works that will be needed post-completion and have now signed a revised Heads of Terms, which extends the exclusivity. The total acquisition price remains circa US$1.7 million (US$548/MW) albeit with revised consideration scheduling as follows:
