EDF Said to Support a Sale of Constellation to Rival

Electricite de France SA, the largest shareholder in Constellation Energy Group Inc., would support the sale of the company as relations between the partners sour, said a person with knowledge of the matter.

EDF, which rejected inquiries about a sale in the past few months, has reversed its thinking amid a dispute over its joint venture with the Baltimore-based company, said the person, who declined to be identified because the talks are private. While EDF would like a change of control or new management at Constellation, it won’t actively pursue a sale, the person said.
