Indicative Bids For TransGrid Placed
Aug 27 15
Six groups from four continents placed indicative bids on August 27, 2015 for TransGrid, a source told Reuters. The sale is valued about $12 billion. "A strong field of parties have lodged indicative bids for the long-term lease of TransGrid," NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian said. A source with direct knowledge of the process told Reuters that five consortia bid and that the status of a sixth, including another electricity company, AusNet Services (ASX:AST), Singapore Power Ltd and State Grid Corporation of China was uncertain. An Ausnet spokesman confirmed the company had previously lodged a formal expression of interest but declined comment further. Other bidders included IFM Investors Pty Ltd, with QIC Limited, the source said. Another consortium to bid was Hastings Funds Management Limited, Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI), Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and Wren House Infrastructure Management Limited, with Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the source said. A fourth bidder was Canadian pension fund investor Borealis Capital Corporation, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and AustralianSuper Pty Ltd, the source said. Global Infrastructure Partners and China Southern Power Grid Co.,Ltd. joined up for a bid and Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. (SEHK:1038) bid alone, the source added. State treasurer Berejiklian said the government "will now move to shortlist qualified parties for the lodgment of binding bids which will be due in the coming months". UBS AG and Deutsche Bank are handling the sale.
AusNet Lead Bidder For TransGrid
Jul 14 15
AusNet Services (ASX:AST) is the lead bidder for TransGrid but is leaving its options open on whether it will bid alongside its major shareholders, Singapore Power Ltd and State Grid Corporation of China, or with other parties. Tony Iannello, AusNet’s Director leading the board subcommittee considering a bid, said that AusNet's experience and track record in running similar assets in Victoria placed it well to put forward a "competitive and compelling bid" for TransGrid, the first business to be sold off in the NSW government's $30 billion "poles and wires" privatization. Expressions of interest in TransGrid are due on July 14, 2015. Deutsche Bank and UBS are advising on the sale. TransGrid is worth about $9 billion. State Grid, which owns 19.9% of AusNet, is understood to have been in discussions with other potential bidders including Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, Inc. Other consortiums include one of Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI), Hastings Funds Management Limited and Canadian and Middle Eastern parties. Australian Super is in a separate group with Borealis Capital Corporation and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, while Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. (SEHK:1038) is thought to be bidding alone. Other parties involved include China Southern Power Grid Co.,Ltd. with China Investment Corporation, and QIC Limited and IFM Investors Pty Ltd. "We believe foreign ownership will mean higher prices," said Steve Butler, NSW secretary of the Electrical Trades Union. Singapore Power and State Grid are being excluded from the work on the bid by AusNet and its adviser Citigroup until they decide whether they will participate in different groups. "We would dearly love them to support any bid that we put forward; what they decide to do is up to them," Tony Iannello said. He added: "We've had a lot of interest from a number of investors; given our strong operational capability it makes AusNet Services a prime target to lead any consortium. We're keeping our options open ... as we go through the bidding phase." Though he said AusNet could bid alone. "AusNet Services has got a very strong credit rating: We've got two major strategic investors and it has got access to a whole range of capital markets on the debt and equity side to be able to carry through on a bid," he said.
Investors Reportedly Bid For stake In Associated British Ports
Mar 23 15
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.
