Canada Pension Plan Investment Board Key Developments

Canada Fund, GIC Are Reported To Eye Tata Tech Stake

Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and GIC Pte. Ltd. are serious candidates to buy a significant minority stake in Tata Technologies Limited. The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) is also among the contenders for the stake purchase in Tata Technologies with an asking valuation of more than $1 billion as the stake sale process run by Citigroup gathers momentum, people directly familiar with the matter said. People familiar with the developments said there appears to be indecisiveness by the major shareholder Tata Motors Limited (BSE:500570) on the quantum of stake sale in Tata Technologies. The stake on offer is likely to be smaller than originally envisaged, trimming the potential deal size to around $300 million - $400 million, the people said, while adding that it was still premature to speculate on the details. Tata Capital Limited and Alpha TC Holdings Pte. Ltd. could exit while Tata Motors is unlikely to pare much stake while retaining majority control. Tata Motors spokesperson declined to comment on this report, reported Times of India.

Indicative Bids For TransGrid Placed

Six groups from four continents placed indicative bids on August 27, 2015 for TransGrid, a source told Reuters. The sale is valued about $12 billion. "A strong field of parties have lodged indicative bids for the long-term lease of TransGrid," NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian said. A source with direct knowledge of the process told Reuters that five consortia bid and that the status of a sixth, including another electricity company, AusNet Services (ASX:AST), Singapore Power Ltd and State Grid Corporation of China was uncertain. An Ausnet spokesman confirmed the company had previously lodged a formal expression of interest but declined comment further. Other bidders included IFM Investors Pty Ltd, with QIC Limited, the source said. Another consortium to bid was Hastings Funds Management Limited, Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI), Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and Wren House Infrastructure Management Limited, with Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the source said. A fourth bidder was Canadian pension fund investor Borealis Capital Corporation, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and AustralianSuper Pty Ltd, the source said. Global Infrastructure Partners and China Southern Power Grid Co.,Ltd. joined up for a bid and Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. (SEHK:1038) bid alone, the source added. State treasurer Berejiklian said the government "will now move to shortlist qualified parties for the lodgment of binding bids which will be due in the coming months". UBS AG and Deutsche Bank are handling the sale.
