Brookfield, Renova Takeover Talks Reportedly To Cool Down

The takeover talks between Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (TSX:BAM.A) and Renova Energia S.A. (BOVESPA:RNEW11 reportedly to cool down due to reluctance of Renova Energia SA's largest shareholder to give up management, three people familiar with the matter said on July 13, 2017. Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais (BOVESPA:CMIG4) (Cemig) wants to be part of a Brookfield-led turnaround of Renova, two of the people said. Cemig owns 34.2% of Renova. Cemig plans to first sound out interest from Oaktree Capital Group, LLC (NYSE:OAK) and two other unidentified funds in Renova, two of the people said.

CEMIG Prioritizes Sale Of Light

Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais (BOVESPA:CMIG4) has once again revised its asset sale plan and decided to prioritize the sale of Light S.A. (BOVESPA:LIGT3), which is set to take place by November 2017. The sale of Taesa's shares, therefore, has been postponed to the end of 2017. Cemig argues that Light is a more relevant asset for the disinvestment plan. Cemig's 43% stake in Light could be worth BRL 2 billion. If this sale does not go ahead as Cemig is planning, the company could then use the sale of Taesa's shares to settle the dispute.
