ACS makes a takeover bid for 10% of Fenosa (ES)

Constructor ACS made yesterday a takeover bid for just 10% of Unión Fenosa, with the aim to reach the 35% of the electrical companys capital. The construction Group leaded by Florentino Perez offers €33 per share, the same amount that it paid last September for the 22% in hands of Santander bank. It also represents a bonus of 8.5% on the current electricity companys quotation. The operation of purchase of 30.47 million titles will have an approximated cost of €1,005 million.

ACS reinforces thus its presence in Unión Fenosa, although it rejects that the movement is a reaction to the taking of positions of the Galician shareholders. To Caixanova, Caixa Galicia and Banco Pastor, has joined recently the president of Fadesa Manuel Jove, with a 3.8% of the capital and declared aspirations to reach a 5%.
The takeover bid will be financed 75% through credits and the 25 remaining percent by means of capital, like it became at his moment with the package of Santander.
