Taaleri records a loss of about EUR 2.5 million from a German geothermal project

Taaleri Investments Ltd, part of the Taaleri Group, acquired the majority shareholding in Erdwärme Oberland GmbH (86.42% of shares and votes) from the Italian energy-company Enel on March 12, 2018.  Taaleri Investments Ltd.’s purpose is to invest in electricity and district heating projects which are utilizing geothermal energy production located in the federal state Bavaria in Germany. Erdwärme Oberland GmbH controls one of the projects.

Unfortunately, the tests on the first geothermic production site have proven that the project on the site in question is not commercially doable and, Taaleri Investments Ltd records hence a loss of approximately EUR 2.5 million, visible in Taaleri Groups half year results 2018. The project in question does not cause a loss to Taaleri's customers that have invested in Taaleri Georahasto I or in the co-investment Taaleri Geoenergia.

Taaleri’s long-term financial targets remain unchanged.
