Edison’s Italian Investors Divided on Asset Split, Corriere Says

Aug. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Edison SpA’s Italian investors are divided about the split of assets after reaching an accord for control of the utility with Electricite de France SA, daily Corriere della Sera reported, without saying where it got the information.

Edison’s biggest shareholder is Transalpina di Energia, a company half-owned by Paris-based EDF and half by Delmi SpA, which in turn is owned by A2A SpA and other Italian companies. A2A is leading the talks with Edison and Delmi’s smaller shareholders want to be more involved in negotiations, Corriere reported.
