Invest in HCB "Cahora Bassa, the Pride of Mozambique"
In November 2017 - on the 10-year anniversary of the announcement of the reversion of the ownership of Hidroeléctrica de Cahora Bassa (SA) or HCB to Mozambique – it was announced that Mozambicans would be offered the opportunity to own shares in the company. This marked the first step in the realisation of the phrase “Cahora Bassa é Nossa” (Cahora Bassa is Ours).
The Mozambican State owns the majority of HCB and the remainder is owned by Portuguese company, Redes Energéticas Nacionais, S.A. (REN). 7,5% of the capital stock held by HCB has been allocated for distribution to Mozambicans and of this 2,5% is being made available through the first offer launched on 20 May 2019.
