NextEra Energy Inc. announced this week it intends to sell $2.5 billion of equity units in the Florida-based electric utility parent, Kallanish Energy reports.
Each equity unit will be issued at $50. Each unit will consist of a contract to purchase NextEra Energy common stock in the future and a 5% undivided beneficial ownership interest in a NextEra Energy Capital Holdings, Inc. debenture due March 1, 2025, to be issued in the principal amount of $1,000.
The debentures will be guaranteed by NextEra Energy Capital Holdings’ parent company, NextEra Energy Inc.
The holders would be required to complete the stock purchase by no later than March 1, 2023, and their purchase obligations may be satisfied with proceeds raised from remarketing the debentures that comprise part of their equity units.
The net proceeds from the sale of the equity units are expected to be roughly $2.42 billion, which will be added to the general funds of NextEra Energy Capital Holdings.
Capital holdings expects to use its general funds to fund investments in energy and power projects and for other general corporate purposes, including the repayment of all or a portion of NextEra Energy Capital Holdings’ outstanding commercial paper obligations.
