Borealis Capital Corporation Key Developments

Investors Reportedly Bid For stake In Associated British Ports

Investors are preparing competing offers for a major stake in Associated British Ports Holdings Limited ahead of the deadline for first-round bids this week. A 33% stake in the group, which owns and runs 21 ports throughout the UK, is up for grabs, after The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS) and Prudential plc (LSE:PRU) put their portions of the company up for sale last year. Current shareholders Borealis Capital Corporation, and GIC Special Investments Pte. Ltd., the Singapore sovereign wealth fund, both with 33% stakes in the group, are set to take on an additional 7%. The remaining holding has reportedly caught the eye of British Telecommunications plc and the National Pension Service, which has entered a consortium with Canadian firm OPTrust Private Markets Group, Dutch fund APG and Gatwick-owner Global Infrastructure Partners.

Bidders Reportedly Eye Port of Melbourne

Global Infrastructure Partners has partnered with QIC Limited and ¬Borealis Capital Corporation for the acquisition of Port of Melbourne Corporation in a deal valued as much as $5 billion. The consortium is being advised by Credit Suisse and Gresham. Morgan Stanley and Flagstaff are handling the sale. Other bidders in race are known to be IFM Investors Pty Ltd, advised by JPMorgan, and Hastings Funds Management Limited together with Wren House Infrastructure Management Limited, which are advised by Royal Bank of Canada and UBS. Morgan Stanley and Flagstaff have sent out flyer documents for the sale and are calling for formal expressions of interest in late February, indicative bids in mid-May and binding bids in August. Macquarie and Bank of America Merrill Lynch are working on behalf of the Queensland government for its privatization program.

State Grid Corporation of China Reportedly Retains HSBC For Acquisition Of Electricity Assets

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.
