Neoen (ISIN: FR0011675362, Ticker: NEOEN), one of the world’s leading independent producers of exclusively renewable energy, is reporting (unaudited) revenue of €154.4 million in the first quarter of 2023, up 42% on the first-quarter 2022 level. At constant exchange rates, revenue moved up 41%. 

Xavier Barbaro, Neoen’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are proud of the figures we are reporting today, and I’d like to congratulate Neoen’s teams on this outstanding performance. The substantial increase in Neoen’s electricity generation demonstrates its ability to bring projects to fruition at a rapid pace. The growth in our revenue, which outstripped even the increase in our power generation, shows the very large top-line contribution made by our recent capacity additions. Neoen is thus delivering both strong growth and value creation. Thanks to the funds raised during our recent rights issue, we will be able to accelerate our pace of growth in an environment definitively set to remain positive for renewable energies and in which our storage capacity and our energy management expertise will help differentiate us still further. The outlook for Neoen is more exciting than ever.”
