State Grid Corporation of China Reportedly Retains HSBC For Acquisition Of Electricity Assets
Jan 19 15
State Grid Corporation of China has retained HSBC to advise it on the acquisition of up to $50 billion worth of electricity assets earmarked for sale by the Queensland and NSW governments. State Grid will rival three consortiums and other possible buyers, likely to include Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. (SEHK:1038), advised by Credit Suisse and potentially Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C). So far, consortiums in place are Australian Super, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Borealis Capital Corporation advised by Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs, and IFM Investors Pty Ltd and QIC limited, which may be representing interests of the Future Fund and could be taking advice from Barclays. Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec is said to have joined the Hastings Funds Management Limited’s consortium with Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI), advised by JP-Morgan and Royal Bank of -Canada. Universities Superannuation Scheme Limited and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority were in talks to join Hastings before Christmas and could be still searching for partnership opportunities. Singapore Power Ltd is still considering whether to enter the bidding. A decision on whether the Queensland government sells its electricity assets will depend on the outcome of the January 31, 2015 election. Macquarie and Bank of America Merrill Lynch are handling the Queensland sales. The sale will begin with Powerlink Transmission Services Pty Ltd. valued between $10 billion and $12 billion, followed by Energex Limited and Ergon Energy Queensland Pty Ltd. with all assets collectively worth about $30 billion. The government will also sell a lease for 100% of its electricity transmission network TransGrid, for between $7 billion and $8 billion. This will be followed by sale of 50% stakes in Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy. About $20 billion collectively is expected from the sell down.
