Transaction Leverages Apollo’s Infrastructure Expertise, Flexible Capital and Institutional Relationships to Help Fuel the Clean Energy Transition
Apollo today announced that funds managed by its affiliates (the “Apollo Funds”) have made a first close on a $816 million in a convertible equity portfolio financing agreement with NextEra Energy Partners, LP in a 2.5 GW contracted renewable energy generation portfolio (the “Portfolio”).
