CDC to Remain Biggest Holder of Veolia Transdev, Les Echos Says

Caisse de Depots et Consignations plans to remain the largest shareholder of Veolia Transdev even if Veolia Environnement SA (VIE) sells its stake, CDC’s temporary Chief Executive Officer Antoine Gosset-Grainville told Les Echos.

Gosset-Grainville, appointed as interim chief executive in February, said in the interview he holds the full powers of chief executive.

Gosset-Grainville also said in the interview that CDC’s partnership with La Banque Postale to finance local authorities is a “major strategic opportunity.”

He told Les Echos that CDC would sign a protocol of intention with the government and La Banque Postale in the coming days.
