Asset Sale Of PKP Attracts International Buyers
Nov 7 14
The planned sale of the telecom and energy subsidiaries of PKP Cargo Spólka Akcyjna (WSE:PKP) is attracting international buyers, although their enthusiasm is curbed by evident risks. PKP responds that it is reorganizing the assets it wants to sell, such as Telekomunikacja Kolejowa Spólka z o.o. and PKP Energetyka Sp. z o.o. PKP seems on its way to full recovery, as evidenced by the initial interest of bidders, including Exatel SA and Netia S.A. (WSE:NET), which filed preliminary offers by the end of October 2014, as well as equity funds. Even Polkomtel Sp. z o.o. and America Movil S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:AMX L) are rumoured to be eyeing the telecom assets of PKP. The PLN 700 million worth PKP Energetyka has apparently raised the interest of infrastructure equity funds, such as Marguerite, Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG), EISER Infrastructure Partners LLP, CEE Equity, Infracapital and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), as well as energy giants PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. (WSE:PGE), Tauron Polska Energia Spolka Akcyjna (WSE:TPE), ENERGA Spólka Akcyjna (WSE:ENG) and Enea AB (OM:ENEA). PKP plans to complete sale of the two firms in 2015, and use the funds for repayment of debts.
