Directors' Valuation

The Directors’ Valuation is currently £2.35 per share.

The Directors' Valuation was last updated on 16 May 2022. Details about the update are available here. 

The Directors’ Valuation is calculated using the discounted cash flows of all Thrive’s operating projects, and projects under construction, across their expected operational life. In simple terms, discounted cash flow is a method of working out the value of a company today, based on projections of how much money it’s going to make in the future. No value is attributed in the Directors' Valuation to the pipeline of potential projects or projects under exclusivity.

The Directors’ Valuation calculation is based on a detailed discounted cash flow valuation, which is considered appropriate for capital intensive infrastructure assets such as renewable energy generation and storage projects which have long term cash flows. The Directors rigorously ensure that the method of Company valuation calculation and discount factor used (which reflects the unlisted status of the shares1) is consistent from one share issue to the next.

The Board is committed to reviewing the valuation of Thrive Renewables plc following material events. Material events include changes in the portfolio (new project acquisitions for instance) and significant market developments.

Independent assessment of share valuation

In 2014, Thrive Renewables commissioned Edison to conduct an independent valuation and benchmarking of the Company to substantiate the Directors' Valuation. This will give buyers and sellers additional information on which to base their pricing decision. The summary of their report can be downloaded here. If you’d like to see the full version of Edison’s report please contact us on 0117 428 1850 or

In 2019, we sold two operational wind farms realising a significant gain. Established renewable energy projects have become a desirable commodity, offering long term inflation linked revenues. The sale of the two projects provides further evidence to support our valuation of the Company.
