(holding a share of PLN 1 billion each), whereby in this amount are included the funds contributed by ENEA S.A. and Energa S.A. before the date of conclusion of a potential investment agreement with the Fund, and maximum PLN 1 billion is the share capital contributed to the Company by the Fund, and the remaining amount will be contributed by other forms of financing.
The Memorandum of Understanding was concluded in connection with the procedure for obtaining a conditional certificate authorising the Company to participate in the main auction within the capacity market and may for that purpose be presented to PSE S.A.
