Colombia’s EEB Says Plunge Not Justified by Financial Results

Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Empresa de Energia de Bogota SA, Colombia’s second-biggest electricity distributor, said the “sudden and strong” plunge in its shares isn’t justified given its “solid” financial results.

The company, known as EEB, will begin trading today after Colombia’s financial regulator on Dec. 7 suspended it after shares plunged 17 percent over three days following mayor-elect Gustavo Petro’s comments that he would seek to merge it with other city-controlled utilities.

EEB commented on its share price in a regulatory filing late yesterday.
