Vancouver, British Columbia - October 30, 2023 (www.waternewswire.com) Synex Renewable Energy Corporation (TSX: SXI) ("Synex" or the "Company") today announced that the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") has initiated a strategic review of the Company with the aim of enhancing shareholder value. The review will explore and evaluate all strategic alternatives available to the Company, including the sale of the Company.
Daniel J. Russell, Chief Executive Officer of Synex commented, "We have a strong and competitive business, with a diversified portfolio of renewable assets in a leading jurisdiction. That said, we believe the value of our assets is not fully realized. As a result, we have determined that pursuing a strategic review is the best path forward for Synex at this time. During this strategic review process, Synex will continue to move its approximately 5,000MW of development projects forward as we look for the best next steps to realize on creating shareholder value."
While the Board has not set a timetable for this process, nor has it made any decisions related to any strategic alternatives at this time, it hopes to have something concluded over the next several months. There can be no assurances that the Board's review of strategic alternatives will result in a transaction. Synex does not intend to provide announcements of updates regarding this process unless or until it determines that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
Synex has retained Beacon Securities Limited as its financial advisor to assist with the strategic review process.
