Yellow Door Energy Raises US$400 Million For Expansion in Middle East & Africa

  • Yellow Door Energy (YDE) has announced the closing of a new equity raise to continue its development of sustainable energy projects in the Middle East, Africa and beyond.

The investment also includes a purchase of current shares, enabling the company’s initial investors to exit. The funding is substantially provided by YDE’s newest and now controlling shareholder, Actis, with existing shareholders International Finance Corporation (IFC), Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui”) and APICORP also increasing their equity commitments.

With the closure of this landmark transaction, YDE’s business plan is fully funded and the management team is now focused on executing sustainable energy solutions over the next five years, with a portfolio value expected to exceed $1 billion, which will be funded through a combination of equity and debt securities.

“This substantial investment will enable Yellow Door Energy to rapidly expand into new countries and deploy over $1 billion in projects across the region. We whole-heartedly welcome Actis as our majority shareholder and look forward to a fruitful collaboration. We would also like to express our gratitude to our existing shareholders – IFC, Mitsui and APICORP – for their continued investment and support for our business model of providing affordable, reliable and sustainable energy to visionary companies in the MEA region and beyond,” said Jeremy Crane, CEO & Founder Yellow Door Energy

YDE operates in the C&I energy sector in the UAE, Jordan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and South Africa.
