TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jade Power Trust (“Jade Power” or the “Trust”) (TSXV: JPWR.UN) announces changes to the composition of the board (the “Board”) of directors of Jade Power Administrator Inc. (the “Administrator”), administrator of the Trust, and management of the Trust.

J. Colter Eadie, Chief Executive Officer of the Administrator, and Ravi Sood, Chairman of the Administrator, have resigned from all of their director and officer positions with each of the entities within the Jade Power organization (collectively, the “Jade Affiliates”) and Gabriel Mihai has resigned as a director of the Administrator. As a result of such resignations, David Barclay, a director of the Administrator, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Administrator and each of David Barclay and John Huxley have been appointed as directors and officers of the Jade Affiliates to replace Messrs. Eadie and Sood as applicable.

The above-noted Board and management changes were completed in light of the fact that the Trust shall no longer be carrying on active operations as a result of the closing of the Trust’s previously announced sale of all of its renewable energy operating assets to Enery Power Holding GmbH (the “Sale Transaction”).

“On behalf of the Trust, I would like to thank each Messrs. Eadie, Sood and Mihai for their dedicated years of service to the Trust and Unitholders,” said Mr. Barclay, Chief Executive Officer of the Trust. “Colter and Ravi were instrumental to the growth and development of Jade Power from the time of the Trust’s first acquisition of its Romanian hydro assets in 2014 to the completion of the Sale Transaction and declaration of the related special distribution to Unitholders, each of which was completed just a few days ago. Their vision for the Trust and unwavering commitment to that vision will not be forgotten and the current members of the Board wish them the best in their future business ventures,“ Mr. Barclay continued.
