Riverstone Holdings LLC Key Developments

Bidders Reportedly Emerge For E.ON's Spanish Assets

Bidders are readying indicative offers for the Spanish assets of E.ON SE (DB:EOAN), three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters, adding bids would value the whole portfolio at about €2 billion. Parties expected to submit non-binding bids for all or some of the assets include CVC Capital Partners Limited; a consortium consisting of Borealis Infrastructure Trust and EDP; as well as a group comprising Riverstone Holdings LLC and Alpiq Holding AG (SWX:ALPH), the people said. Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR), Macquarie Group Limited (ASX:MQG) and Grupo Villar Mir, S.A. are also expected to express an interest, they said, adding it was not immediately clear whether they were part of a consortium or bidding alone. First bids are expected to be submitted by an August 11, 2014 deadline, the sources said. Other bidders for the Spanish assets could include Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL), which last week said it was interested in parts of the portfolio, without being more specific. Burdened by €31.1 billion in net debt, a collapse in wholesale power prices and the demise of its traditional generation business, E.ON is exploring the sale of its country operations in Italy and Spain, sources have told Reuters. The power grid is expected to be one of the most attractive assets of E.ON's portfolio. E.ON, CVC, KKR, Riverstone, Macquarie, Borealis Infrastructure, Alpiq and Grupo Villar Mir all declined to comment, and EDP was also not immediately available for comment, Reuters reported.
