Key features of the monthly share auctions


A simple process, buyers decide on the price per share they’re willing to pay, and the number of shares they wish to buy. Buyers can choose to buy shares at the current Directors’ Valuation or set their own price.

The Directors’ Valuation is provided as a guide to the value of Thrive Renewables based on all its operational assets, which have largely predictable long-term cash flows. Shares are matched by prioritising the highest priced buyer with the seller who has been waiting the longest to sell and is willing to accept the price offered. Shares will transact at the buyer’s price.


It’s straightforward, sellers decide the minimum price they’ll accept for their shares. Sellers can choose to sell shares at the current Directors’ Valuation or set their own price.

The way the share auction works is that the seller can determine a minimum price that they would be willing to accept, so they won’t ever sell the shares at a price they are unhappy with. Shares are matched by prioritising the highest priced buyer with the seller who has been waiting the longest to sell and is willing to accept the price offered. Shares will trade at the buyer’s price.


The highest priced buyer is matched with the equivalent price seller whose shares have been listed for the longest time. So, sellers who have been waiting the longest and are willing to accept the buyer’s offer are matched first, and if sellers have been listed for the same amount of time, they are then prioritised based on the lowest reserve price set.

The trades will always be matched and transact at the buyers’ price.


Thrive Renewables plc is an unlisted company and shares in Thrive Renewables plc aren’t traded on an investment exchange such as the London Stock Exchange or the Alternative Investment Market. This means share transactions can be infrequent, and there may be a delay between you giving instructions to buy or sell shares and your order being completed. It also means it can be difficult to assess your investment’s value.

The value of your investment and any income from it may fall and you may get back less than, or none of, the amount you invested. The Directors’ Valuation will always be published on the Thrive Renewables website.
