Deutsche Australia & UBS To Call EOI For TransGrid

NSW government, Deutsche Australia Limited and UBS AG, Australia Branch are preparing to call formal expressions of interest for TransGrid. There are eight known bidding camps, out of which only four or five expected to be taken through to TransGrid's auction. The biggest concern is engineers and each of the consortiums have either lined up or will line up technical engineering advisers, whose diligence will form the base of the eventual offer. The decision to choose four or five bidders is a difficult one. WorleyParsons Limited (ASX:WOR), sell-side advisor will release a report to bidders once confidentiality agreements are signed and the auction gets serious. A consortium including Hastings Funds Management Limited, Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI), Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Wren House Infrastructure is expected to be approved for the auction. QIC Limited, IFM Investors Pty Ltd along with Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. (SEHK:1038) are expected to present a strong case. This most likely leaves only one spot for a China-backed consortium which could be- State Grid Corporation of China along with MIRA or China Southern Power Grid Co.,Ltd. with Global Infrastructure Partners or Singapore Power Ltd along with AusNet Services (ASX:AST).
