Empresas Públicas de Medellín E.S.P. Key Developments

EPM Reportedly Submits New Proposal To Sell Isagén Stake

Empresas Públicas de Medellín E.S.P. (EPM) submitted a new proposal to the local authorities of Medellín, seeking authorization to sell its 13% stake in Isagen S.a. E.s.p. (BVC:ISAGEN) (Isagén), an EPM release said on July 28, 2014. The Colombian government is expected to auction off its 57.6% interest in Isagén on August 22, 2014. Last week local authorities rejected EPM's initial proposal to sell its 13% stake in Isagén. Under the new proposal, Medellín authorities could approve or reject the sale of EPM's Isagén shares once it knows the shares' sales price, the identity of Isagén's new owner and the conditions offered to EPM as a minority shareholder, the release said. EPM also reiterated its valuation of the 13% Isagén stake at $650 million and said any potential buyer would need to meet that sum.

Empresas And Its Partner Will Not Bid For Isagen

Empresa de Energia de Bogotá S.A. ESP (BVC:EEB) and Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais S.A. (BOVESPA:CMIG4) decided not to bid for Isagen S.a. E.s.p. (BVC:ISAGEN). In March 2014, Empresa and Companhia joined together to acquire 57.65 government stake in Isagen. Empresa said, the Brazilian company does not expect an adequate return on its investment so it is withdrawing its offer. It may also bring a possibility of Empresa selling its stake.
