Germany Reportedly Adds Conditions For Urenco Stake Sale

Germany seeks to take part in the decision-making process and even to fire executives at Urenco Limited after a possible sale of its stake in thecompany, daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported. The new owners of the should allow Germany to make strategic and financial requirements, the report stated citing a letter by Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel to German Green Party atomic expert Sylvia Kotting-Uhl in the Bundestag. The letter also detailed conditions that could be attached to a possible sale of the stake. The report stated that the German government should be able to intervene if it sees a risk to nuclear non-proliferation, the control of sensitive technology or the energy supply. Germany holds about 33% stake in Urenco through RWE AG (DB:RWE) and E.ON SE (DB:EOAN). The British and Dutch governments hold the rest of the stake. RWE and E.on seek to sell their stake, which is difficult because of the complicated ownership structure of Urenco and would require the approval by Britain and the Netherlands. Britain is also preparing a sale of its stake, a spokesman for the British Treasury Department has said earlier. The government is in discussions with owners of Urenco over the available options. The Dutch government does not plan a stake sale. Urenco is valued about €10 billion.
