ACWA Power International Key Developments

1Malaysia Development Said To Shortlist CGN Meiya Power, Nebras Power For Power Plant Sale

1Malaysia Development Berhad has shortlisted bidders including CGN Meiya Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (SEHK:1811) and Nebras Power Q.S.C. for its energy asset sale. On September 28, 2015, CNBC said that according to people familiar with the matter, the four unnamed energy companies announced as shortlisted by 1MDB earlier this month were Saudi Arabia's ACWA Power International, Nebras Power Q.S.C. of Qatar, Hong Kong's CGN Meiya Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (SEHK:1811) and Malaysian state-owned Tenaga Nasional Berhad (KLSE:TENAGA).

Investors Reportedly Mull Acquisition Of Stakes In Edra

Investors including YTL Corporation Berhad (KLSE:YTL), Tenaga Nasional Berhad (KLSE:TENAGA) and Malakoff Corporation Berhad (KLSE:MALAKOF) are understood to have put in the lowest bids for 1Malaysia Development Bhd's (1MDB) power assets parked under Edra Global Energy Bhd, financial executives familiar with the matter told digital edge Weekly. The foreign bidders including ACWA Power International, a Thai outfit, a Qatari company and a Chinese party. Another Malaysian company said to have shown interest is IJM Corporation Berhad (KLSE:IJM), which has opted for an associate stake rather than swallow the whole of Edra.

Aljomaih And Qatar Investment Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Stake In Edra

Aljomaih Holding Company and Qatar Investment Authority are known to be in discussions to acquire about 49% stake in Edra Global Energy Bhd, a wholly owned unit of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), sources said. The stake sale is known to be part of a prelude to a possible flotation exercise on Bursa Malaysia. “Earlier indications were that the listing (of Edra) was off, but there seems to have been a revival of the plan to float Edra's shares on the local bourse. The logic is that if 1MDB were to sell the power generation assets now, it (1MDB) would get a fire-sale price as everyone knows the pressure it is under. On the other hand, if some cash was obtained — like from selling just 49% — merely to settle some of the more pressing loans, after which 1MDB would then renegotiate the remaining debt commitments, 1MDB may be able to still hold on to control of Edra while solving its problems," the source explains. At present, several parties such as IJM Corporation Berhad (KLSE:IJM), Tenaga Nasional Berhad (KLSE:TENAGA), Sembcorp Industries Ltd (SGX:U96), ACWA Power International and San Miguel Corporation (PSE:SMC) are known to have expressed interest in Edra. "These assets under Edra are national assets. 1MDB is a GLC (government-linked company) so there is a need to be prudent and not just sell the assets quickly, sweep all the problems under the carpet - there is a need to get the best value from the sale," the source adds. The enterprise value of Edra is in the region of MYR 16 billion to MYR 18 billion. News reports have the value of Edra based on the sale to the interested parties pegged at around MYR 15 billion.
