Item 1. Security and Issuer.


This statement on Schedule 13D (the “Schedule 13D”) relates to the Class A ordinary shares, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”) of Fusion Fuel Green plc, an Irish public limited company (the “Issuer”) whose principal executive offices are located at 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2, D02 T380, Ireland.


Item 2. Identity and Background.


The Schedule 13D is being filed by Fusion Welcome, S.A. (the “Reporting Person”). The Reporting Person is a public limited company domiciled in Portugal, sociedade anónima. The business address of the Reporting Person is Ex-Siemens Facilities, Rua da Fábrica, S/N, Sabugo 2715-376, Almargem do Bispo, Portugal. There are four shareholders of the Reporting Person, none of which has voting or dispositive control over the securities held thereby. The voting and dispositive decisions regarding the portfolio securities of the Reporting Person require unanimous approval of shareholders of the Reporting Person. The Reporting Person is a Portuguese industrial group whose principal activities have been focused on solar concentrated photovoltaic technology since 2008.


During the last five years, the Reporting Person has not (i) been convicted in any criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.


Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.


On June 6, 2020, the Issuer entered into a business combination agreement (as amended and restated on August 25, 2020, the “Business Combination Agreement”) with HL Acquisitions Corp., a British Virgin Islands business company (“HL”), Fusion Welcome – Fuel, S.A., a public limited company domiciled in Portugal, sociedade anonima (“Fusion Fuel”), Fusion Fuel Atlantic Limited, A British Virgin Islands business company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (“Merger Sub”), and the shareholders of Fusion Fuel, including the Reporting Person (“Fusion Fuel Shareholders”) pursuant to which (i) Merger Sub would merge with and into HL (the “Merger”), with HL being the surviving entity of the Merger and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer, and (ii) the Issuer would acquire all the issued and outstanding shares of Fusion Fuel (the “Share Exchange,” and together with the Merger, the “Transactions”).


On December 10, 2020, the parties to the Business Combination Agreement consummated the Transactions in accordance with the Business Combination Agreement.


The Reporting Person held 37,500 ordinary shares of Fusion Fuel immediately prior to the Share Exchange. The Fusion Fuel ordinary shares were converted into an aggregate of 1,593,750 Class B ordinary shares of the Issuer (each Class B ordinary share is convertible at any time and from time to time into one Class A Ordinary Share) and 1,593,750 warrants of the Issuer (each warrant is exercisable for one Class A Ordinary Share at any time and from time to time at an initial exercise price of $11.50 per share). Pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, an aggregate of 159,374 Class B ordinary shares of the Issuer held by the Reporting Person are being held in escrow to serve as a source of funds for the indemnification obligations of the Reporting Person.


Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.


The Reporting Person acquired the securities described in this Schedule 13D in connection with the closing of the Transactions and intends to review its investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Any actions the Reporting Person might undertake may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and will be dependent upon the Reporting Person’s review of numerous factors, including, but not limited to: an ongoing evaluation of the Issuer’s business, financial condition, operations and prospects; price levels of the Issuer’s securities; general market, industry and economic conditions; the relative attractiveness of alternative business and investment opportunities; and other future developments.





The Reporting Person may acquire additional securities of the Issuer, and, subject to the transfer restrictions described below in Item 6, retain or sell all or a portion of the securities then held, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions.


Other than as described above, the Reporting Person does not currently have any plans or proposals that relate to, or would result in, any of the matters listed in Items 4(a)–(j) of Schedule 13D, although, depending on the factors discussed herein, the Reporting Person may change its purpose or formulate different plans or proposals with respect thereto at any time.


Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.


(a) The Reporting Person beneficially owns 3,187,500 Class A Ordinary Shares. Such amount includes 1,593,750 Class A Ordinary Shares issuable upon the conversion of Class B Ordinary Shares.

Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement

On December 10, 2020, in connection with the closing of the Transactions, the Issuer entered into an amended and restated registration rights agreement (“Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement”) providing certain of its shareholders, including the Reporting Person, with certain demand registration rights and piggy-back registration rights with respect to registration statements filed by the Issuer after the closing.


Transfer Restrictions

The Business Combination Agreement includes an agreement of the Fusion Fuel Shareholders, including the Reporting Person, pursuant to which they agreed, among other things not to transfer the Class B Ordinary Shares received by them in connection with the Share Exchange, except to certain permitted transferees, for a period ending on the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date, or earlier if, subsequent to the Closing Date, the Issuer consummates a liquidation, merger, stock exchange or other similar transaction which results in all of the Issuer’s shareholders having the right to exchange their ordinary shares for cash, securities or other property.


Indemnification Escrow Agreement

The Business Combination Agreement provides for mutual indemnification by HL and the Fusion Fuel Shareholders for breaches of their respective representations, warranties, and covenants. Claims for indemnification may be asserted once damages exceed a €750,000 threshold and will be reimbursable to the full extent of the damages in excess of such threshold. Claims for indemnification must be brought before the tenth business day after the Issuer files its annual report for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. To provide a source of funds for the Fusion Fuel Shareholders’ indemnification of HL, on December 10, 2020, the Reporting Person entered into an indemnification escrow agreement (“Indemnification Escrow Agreement”) with the Issuer, HL, Fusion Fuel, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as escrow agent, and the other parties thereto, pursuant to which an aggregate of 159,374 of the Class B Ordinary Shares issued to the Reporting Person in the Transactions was placed into escrow.





The foregoing descriptions of the Amended and Restated Registration Rights Agreement, the Business Combination Agreement, and the Indemnification Escrow Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, each of which is attached as an exhibit to the Schedule 13D and is incorporated herein by reference.


Except as set forth herein, the Reporting Person does not have any contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise) with any person with respect to any securities of the Issuer, including but not limited to any contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships concerning the transfer or voting of such securities, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, puts or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or losses, or the giving or withholding of proxies.
