There are rumours of a corporate transaction. Iberdrola, Gas Natural, Engie and Enel are tipped in the press to be candidates for a key role in a corporate deal with EDP. These companies would potentially be interested in participating in an operation, so as not to be outmanoeuvred in the next wave of mergers in the sector.
Gas Natural and EDP merger
Gas Natural’s main shareholders continue to analyse non-organic growth possibilities via acquisitions. The deal to which both Criteria Caixa (with 25% of Gas Natural) and Global Infrastructure Partner (with 20%) are dedicating more time is an eventual merger with EDP.
