ESGEN Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:ESAC) announced this morning that it has amended its combination with residential solar company Sunergy, shrinking its valuation while adding committed funding.

Under the revised terms of the transaction, ESGEN’s sponsor has committed to buying $15 million in convertible preferred equity securities. Of this amount, $10 million will be provided at the close of the combination, while the remaining $5 million may be funded at the discretion of the combined company within six months after closing. Energy Spectrum Partners VIII will finance the purchase of the Convertible Preferred Securities.

As a result, the enterprise value for the combined company has been lowered -17.8% to $390 million from $475 million, with the proceeds earmarked for operational and growth purposes.

Additionally, the sponsor and other insiders have agreed to forfeit 2,900,000 million founder shares upon closing, leaving 4,000,000 founder shares remaining. An extra 500,000 founder shares will also be forfeited if the convertible preferred securities are redeemed or if the sponsor converts them within two years of closing.

Lastly, all outstanding private placement warrants held by the sponsor and other insiders will be canceled upon the transaction’s closing.

ESGEN announced its deal with Sunergy in April and expects to complete the combination in the first half of 2024. The New Port Richey, Florida-based company installs home-based solar panel systems primarily in three Southern US states.
