Commenting on the divestments, Managing Director Jon Price said:
“Horizon has been successful in creating shareholder value through the divestment of non-core assets to groups with better alignment and capacity to take the projects forward. This has been a successful strategy in creating value for both sides. We have worked closely with our investment companies to minimise any market disruption from share sales and will continue to do so.
