Solar is Hot – Community Solar is Hotter

In the U.S., 80% of households and 90% of businesses can’t install solar systems. Community solar allows individuals and businesses to unlock power bill savings without having to install their own solar systems. UGE International is one of the few public companies for investors to participate in the U.S. community solar industry.

UGE Backlog Continues to be Undervalued

Industry valuations of solar projects under development suggest that UGE International’s current 83.7MW project backlog is undervalued.

UGE’s goal of 120MW of project backlog by the end of 2021 makes the Company’s current undervaluation even more compelling.

Applying peer transactions to UGE’s 357MW (net of backlog) pipeline potentially puts the stock in future multi-bagger territory.

Market Undervalues UGE Versus Peer Transactions

After strong shareholder returns in 2020, 2021 could be another strong year for UGE International, a developer and operator of community solar projects (mostly in the U.S.). Why? Compared to solar project peer transactions, the market is undervaluing UGE shares. Plus, almost C$7 million was added to UGE’s balance sheet this week, in an oversubscribed offering.

UGE Sells Solar Facility Well Above Current Implied Valuation

UGE International announced the sale of one of its completed solar projects (AND 3 new ones AND the completion of another).

Last week, Sophic Capital wrote that solar projects under construction have sold for multiples much higher than what the market values UGE International.

UGE’s project sale multiple shows that the market still undervalues the Company.
