Drax, the owner of western Europe's largest coal-fired power station, announced plans to raise about £100 million by issuing new shares, as the group seeks to pay down debt and boost its credit rating. The company, which had the debts of its key power station in Selby downgraded to junk status by Standard & Poor's last month amid declining demand for power and falling prices, will place up to 25.5 million new ordinary shares, representing about 7.5 per cent of its existing share capital. Deutsche Bank is acting as sole book runner and placing agent for the share issue, which is expected to be completed today. Dorothy Thompson, the chief executive of Drax, which generates about 7 per cent of Britain's electricity through its Selby operation, said: "This action is a prudent and measured response to specific factors existing in our market at this time, which is at the low point of the cycle. We are confident that the placing announced today will improve the resilience of our capital structure and underpin the investment grade rating, which is important in maximising value from Drax."
