the grumpy old men: Engie Romania buys 9.3 MW solar park in Harghita county Wind power, turbine Source: SeeNews BUCHAREST (Romania), December 18 (SeeNews) - The Romanian arm of French electric utility company Engie said on Friday that it has completed the acquisition of a 9.3 MW photovoltaic park in the central county of Harghita. The acquisition is in line with Engie Romania's strategy focused on the development of renewable energies that have a key role in the energy transition, the company said in a press release. The value of the deal was not disclosed. Prior to the completion of the deal, the park was part of Ever Solar, a local company owned by German photovoltaic park developer Soventix and developer Alpin Solar. The photovoltaic farms were put into operation in 2015 and have so far produced approximately 55 GWh, the equivalent of annual electricity consumption of some 34,000 households. "This acquisition marks a new stage in achieving our goal of becoming a major investor in the field of renewable energy in Romania by 2030, thus contributing to the group's ambition to be the leader in energy transition," Engie Romania president and CEO Eric Stab said. "Locally, our goal is to occupy a leading position in the segment of centralised renewable energy - given that wind and solar energy will have an increasing share in the future energy mix of the country - and to provide green energy to our customers, either natural or legal persons," he added. "Romania has a high potential for solar energy, which will be capitalised more and more in the coming years. Therefore, our objective is to continue the development of the installed capacity portfolio of renewable energies, both through organic growth and acquisitions," Engie Romania said in the statement. Engie Romania currently operates 110 MW of renewable energy in wind and photovoltaic capacities. Prior to this acquisition, the company was active in renewable energy with two wind farms, with an installed capacity of approximately 100 MW, located in Braila and Galati counties . The Engie Group is present in Romania in natural gas, electricity and energy services. Engie Romania is the main subsidiary of the French group in Romania and owns the companies Distrigaz Sud Retele, ENGIE Servicii, ENGIE Building Solutions, Alizeu Eolian and Braila Winds, serving a total 1.9 million customers. Engie Romania and its subsidiaries operate a distribution network of about 20,000 km, own two wind farms with a total capacity of 110 MW and have 4,000 employees.

waldron: ENGIE North America partners with Hannon Armstrong to secure $172 million of investment for distributed solar-plus-storage portfolio engieservices.us (PRNewsfoto/ENGIE Services U.S.) News provided by ENGIE North America Dec 07, 2020, 16:45 ET Share this article HOUSTON and ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dec. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ENGIE North America and Hannon Armstrong (NYSE: HASI), a leading investor in climate change solutions, announce a new partnership to jointly invest in a Distributed Generation (DG) portfolio of solar and solar-plus-storage assets located across the United States. The portfolio is comprised of a diversified set of community solar and commercial & industrial (C&I) ground-mounted, carport and rooftop solar and solar-plus-storage projects (around 70 MW in total) located across the U.S., including Massachusetts, Illinois, Vermont, California, Texas, and Arizona. "ENGIE is pleased to partner with Hannon Armstrong on this portfolio, which further demonstrates ENGIE's leadership and strong commitment to climate action goals towards its clients. This new partnership reinforces the ambitions of our organizations," said Gwenaëlle Avice-Huet, Executive Vice President, in charge of the Renewable and Hydrogen Business Units France, responsible for the Global Renewable Business Line and CEO of the North America Business Unit. "This program signals further forward momentum as we work alongside our customers towards a carbon neutral future." "We are delighted to expand our programmatic relationship with ENGIE with this latest agreement," said Hannon Armstrong Chairman and CEO Jeffrey W. Eckel. "This partnership highlights one of the key strengths of our historic core value proposition to clients of executing on scalable investment solutions for smaller, distributed clean energy projects that are essential to a climate-positive future." The agreement will allow ENGIE to rely on committed capital by Hannon Armstrong through December 31, 2021 to finance DG assets across the U.S. ENGIE will retain partial ownership and provide development, construction, operational, asset management, and administrative services. Hannon Armstrong will provide capital to ENGIE through a unique structure that will bring efficiency to a forward flow of projects, leveraging tax equity financing through an upper-tier arrangement with Morgan Stanley. Hannon Armstrong's collaboration with Morgan Stanley on this portfolio represents an expansion of the firms' relationship in recognition of Morgan Stanley becoming the first U.S. bank to commit to disclosing portfolio greenhouse gas emissions and backing the push toward unified measurement of financed emissions via the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF). Distributed generation represents an important piece of ENGIE's U.S. solar-plus-storage market strategy as it represents a sizable share of the overall non-residential solar-plus-storage market. Distributed clean energy generation, including the community solar projects included in the portfolio, foster access to renewable energy and is a key component of the clean energy targets and ambitions of cities, communities, corporate and utility customers. ENGIE currently owns and operates approximately 300 MW of DG solar assets.

waldron: Veolia Environnement SA's deal to buy a 29.9% stake in Suez SA from Engie SA has been in the works since late August, but the process has been anything but smooth. French waste-and-water-management company Veolia bought the stake in its peer from energy company Engie with its second bid. But Suez has been opposed from the beginning and a legal wrangle has ensued. On Nov. 19, court bailiffs seized documents from the offices of Veolia and Engie, as well as investment firm Meridiam, as part of a court order requested by Suez. Timeline August 2020 At the end of August, Veolia launched an initial bid for the 29.9% stake at 15.50 euros ($18.47) a share. Engie had previously initiated a strategic review that included a possible sale of its Suez stake, which meant Veolia's bid was considered likely to succeed. Analysts at Bryan Garnier said that it made sense for Engie to divest its Suez stake as part of wider streamlining, and that the acquisition would boost Veolia's international profile. September 2020 Suez, however, was opposed from the beginning of the deal. Management expressed its opposition to Veolia's approach in September, characterizing the bid as "hostile." Suez said the offer undervalued the company, and that it had concerns over antitrust issues and potential job cuts. On Sept. 17, Engie said it wouldn't accept the offer under the initial terms, but would be open to an improved offer. As expected, on Sept. 30, Veolia increased its bid to EUR18 a share, valuing the 29.9% stake at around EUR3.4 billion. October 2020 On Oct. 5, Veolia said Engie had accepted the offer. As part of the offer, Veolia would guarantee job security for all Suez employees in France, while Meridiam would acquire Suez's French water-activities arm to preserve competition after analysts raised the prospect of potential antitrust issues. Suez continued to oppose the deal, warning of "several serious anomalies" in the bid in a letter to French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire. It also voiced support for a rival bid from private-equity firm Ardian, which had expressed interest in buying the stake from Engie. A twist came on Oct. 9, when a French court ordered the suspension of the stake purchase. The legal reasoning behind the suspension, requested by Suez, was that the company's social and economic committees hadn't been consulted over the deal. Veolia called the decision "incomprehensible" and "grotesque," arguing that only Suez management had the capability to organize such a consultation, and that its failure to do so was born of its opposition to the deal. Veolia said it would appeal the decision. November 2020 Early in November, Veolia confirmed that it still intended to make a full takeover bid for Suez, offering the same EUR18 a share price for the remaining share capital. It said the bid would be launched when the Suez board of directors showed itself amenable. Suez responded by noting the lack of a takeover offer to date, saying the only approach had been via media reports. Suez stressed that any takeover offer would have to reflect the company's value, as well as set out the detail of the combination and any asset sales. In an apparent further setback, Suez said on Nov. 19 that the Paris Court of Appeal had confirmed the earlier decision suspending the effects of the stake purchase. Since no committee consultation had been carried out before the deal was finalized on Oct. 5, the effects of the sale remained suspended until that took place, according to the ruling, Suez said. "Effects" in this context seems mostly to refer to the voting rights conferred on Veolia as holder of a stake in Suez. The company added that it had not received the necessary information from either Veolia or Engie to carry out the relevant employee consultations. For its part, Veolia insisted that Suez had told the court that it had finalized the consultation on Nov. 5, and that since the consultation period was three months, it would recover all its rights relating to the stake purchase on Feb. 5 at the latest. Suez, however, disputed this, arguing that the starting date for the consultation hadn't been fixed. The legal developments took a further twist on Nov. 26, when court bailiffs entered the offices of Engie, Veolia and investment firm Meridiam to seize documents relating to the deal, according to media reports. According to the reports, the court order was requested by Suez, which apparently suspected collusion between Veolia, Engie and Meridiam. Suez is also said to suspect that Meridiam's purchase of Suez Eau was agreed as early as July, even before Engie Chairman Jean-Pierre Clamadieu announced the company was considering selling its stake in Suez. What's Ahead Not only do the bones of contention remain unresolved, there isn't yet any agreement between the parties as to when they will be. Veolia says early February is the latest possible end to the consultation period Suez is insisting on; Suez disagrees. If and when these issues are resolved, Veolia will launch a full takeover bid for its peer. As for the document seizure, Veolia, Engie and Meridiam have the right to request a counter-judgment to the court order, in which case the documents seized would be held pending further legal developments, according to French law.

grupo: thenational.ae Engie given more time to weigh up $4bn offer for Suez stake Suez has opposed Veolia's proposal and backed an alternative approach from private equity firm Ardian SAS A sign above Veolia's headquarters in Paris. The company has bid $4bn to buy a stake in Suez from Engie. Engie has been given longer to consider the offer and has received interest from rival bidders. Bloomberg A sign above Veolia's headquarters in Paris. The company has bid $4bn to buy a stake in Suez from Engie. Engie has been given longer to consider the offer and has received interest from rival bidders. Bloomberg Engie pushed back the deadline for accepting Veolia's €3.4 billion ($4bn) bid for most of its stake in Suez, though there was little sign the delay would ease the tensions between the French corporate giants. The extension to October 5 gives Veolia extra time to formalise talks with Suez, potentially allowing for a friendlier acquisition. But Suez has shown scant inclination to engage in discussions, saying on Thursday it backed an alternative approach from private equity firm Ardian SAS – one that Engie has already brushed aside. The wrangling over the sale of the 29.9 per cent stake – and eventual planned takeover – has continued for a month, with Veolia pushing to create a waste and water utility with more than €40bn in sales, while Suez has done all it can to thwart the proposal. The French government, which holds 24 per cent of Engie, has appealed for calm as it seeks to avoid an acrimonious acquisition battle between two of the nation’s largest companies. Veolia on Wednesday raised its bid by 16 per cent and offered employment guarantees in an effort to persuade Engie to sell the Suez shares. Engie’s board said the new price was in line with expectations, but it was still unwilling to go through with the deal. “There is room for discussion,” Engie chairman Jean-Pierre Clamadieu told reporters late on Wednesday. “We wish that both parties take the opportunity of this period to talk so that conditions of a friendly offer be met.” Suez has fought hard to rebuff the approach. Last week it sought to frustrate Veolia’s plans by creating a so-called poison pill, making antitrust issues more complicated for its suitor. The utility has also attempted to assemble a competing offer for Engie’s stake. Ardian said on Thursday it had sent Engie a letter of intent to buy the Suez shares, and planned to put together a group of public and private investors – mostly French – to submit a friendly takeover offer. While Suez’s board supported the move, Mr Clamadieu said that Engie had received only a vague expression of interest, which lacked a price, details of the bidders or their funding. The time for considering rival offers has passed, he said. Veolia said on Wednesday it would make a tender offer for the remainder of Suez’s shares if Engie accepted its bid, but only on a friendly basis. The company proposed a period of six months for negotiations between the two sides to reach an agreement. If talks fail after that time, Veolia would present its offer direct to all shareholders, chief executive Antoine Frerot said. Updated: October 1, 2020 09:36 PM

grupo: Suez Supports Ardian Plan to Launch Takeover Bid for Company 01/10/2020 12:52pm Dow Jones News Veolia Environnement (EU:VIE) Intraday Stock Chart Thursday 1 October 2020 Click Here for more Veolia Environnement Charts. --Suez says it supports France-based Ardian's approach to shareholder Engie for a 29.9% stake in the waste-management company --The development came a day after rival Veolia Environnement made an increased bid to Engie for the same stake --Engie looks set to accept Veolia's fresh offer, according to Jefferies analysts By Joshua Kirby Suez SA has backed private-equity firm Ardian's plan to launch a takeover bid for the company, the latest development in a story that this week saw Veolia Environnement SA increase its bid for Engie SA's shares in Suez as part of its plan to take over its rival. "Both Suez's board of directors and its employee shareholders confirm their support for the letter of intent issued and made public today by Ardian in a press release, for the acquisition of a 29.9% stake of Engie's shares in Suez, and the all-cash takeover bid that would immediately follow for all Suez shareholders, under the same treatment conditions," the French waste-management company said Thursday. The statement comes after France-based Ardian said it had informed Engie of its interest in acquiring a 29.9% stake in Suez from the energy company, adding that it wanted to form a consortium of mostly French private and public institutional investors to launch a friendly offer for Suez. On Wednesday, Engie seemed closer to selling the 29.9% stake to Veolia, after the latter increased its offer by 16% to 18 euros ($21.10) a share from EUR15.50 in the initial offer. Engie welcomed the renewed offer, which values the stake at EUR3.4 billion, saying it was in line with expectations regarding price and social guarantees, and adding that it would make a decision by Oct. 5. Suez has opposed the approach from Veolia, saying that the terms of the new offer are vague and don't guarantee the interests of shareholders and stakeholders. The new bid from Veolia may, however, be too good to refuse for Engie, according to analysts at Jefferies. The 18-euro-a-share offer represents a 50% increase on Suez's share price on Aug. 28, just before the announcement of the initial bid, Jefferies said. "We see the price offered by Veolia as very attractive and believe Engie will find it difficult to refuse, particularly given its ambitions to invest in green energy," Jefferies said. The U.S. bank added that acceptance could lead to a friendly merger, given Veolia's concessions to Suez, including full employment in France and integration of Suez executives into the larger group. Veolia also promised to make a tender offer for the remaining 70.1% of Suez on a friendly basis. Suez has been holding out for Veolia to make an offer for 100% of the company. It is unclear whether the EUR18 offered by Veolia for each Suez share would be a reference price in any subsequent tender offer for the remaining shares, Jefferies said.

grupo: Https://www.eureporter.co/business/2020/09/23/why-is-engie-ceo-jean-pierre-clamadieu-in-a-hurry-to-sell-off-suez/ Business Why is Engie CEO Jean-Pierre Clamadieu in a hurry to sell off Suez? Published 4 mins ago on September 23, 2020 By Business Correspondent In the battle to ward off a hostile takeover from long-term rival Veolia, Suez is raising the stakes. The French waste and water management company announced that its strategy to improve the firm’s financial performance was paying off sooner than expected. As a consequence, Suez shareholders can look forward to €1.2 billion in exceptional dividends by early 2021. The strategy was implemented last year, but the timing of the announcement is hardly a coincidence, coming mere days after Engie – which holds a 30 percent stake in Suez – rejected Veolia’s offer to buy out the stake at €15.50 per share, or a total of €2.9 billion on September17th. Engie’s CEO Jean-Pierre Clamadieu made it abundantly clear that Veolia’s bid was too low and called on the utilities provider to raise its offer, insisting that the “value of Suez is higher than the basis of these discussions.” The rejection itself may not be the biggest news, however. More interesting is what can be read between the lines, specifically Clamadieu’s evident urgency that Veolia offer a new bid as soon as possible while calling on Suez to respond with a counter-offer – fast. The Engie CEO repeatedly stressed that any alternative bid would be considered carefully, assuming it could be “implemented rapidly”, and even offered an extension to Veolia for a new offer if need be. If Engie’s signalling to both bidders that the clock is ticking was unequivocal, then that’s only because time is running out for Clamadieu as well. By rejecting Veolia’s bid and calling on Suez, it’s become evident that the Engie leadership is hoping to force a deal rather sooner than later. Indeed, after years of loss-making and continually falling operating profits, the Covid-19 pandemic left the company cash-strapped and is most likely the main driver behind Clamadieu’s decision to divest from some of Engie’s subsidiaries to reap the benefit of short-term financial windfalls. Herein lies the rub – to get Engie’s finances back in order, Clamadieu seems willing to make a risky bet that’s resting on the assumption that a quick bidding war is the best way to maximize returns. But maximizing returns takes time as both contenders need to be given ample opportunity to escalate their bids. The emphasis on urgency is putting the pressure on Suez to react within a short period of time – Veolia’s offer expires September 30th – leaving the firm mere days to raise funds for a credible counter-offer. With the clock ticking fast, Clamadieu’s gamble may well backfire and force him to sign off on a deal that remains behind Engie’s expectations – but one that would most definitely make Veolia happy. As such, the gambit raises broader questions about Jean-Pierre Clamadieu’s strategy, as well as his leadership. It’s important to note that Clamadieu was hailed as a fine and discreet business strategist when he became Engie CEO this February following a boardroom coup that saw the luckless former CEO Isabelle Kocher getting the sack. But in revealing the risky short-terminism in his thinking, Clamadieu isn’t doing himself any favours, particularly where his other leading business positions are concerned. Take his role in French insurance company Axa, where he has held the Senior Independent Director position since April 2019. The insurance giant is facing down its own share of Covid-induced troubles after a Paris court ruled that the firm must cover a restaurant owner’s coronavirus-related revenue losses. The ruling set a ground-breaking precedent for businesses in the gastronomy sector, with the insurer now in talks with more than 600 establishments over financial settlements. With Axa potentially in for millions of extra payments, a long-term strategy to keep the company profitable is required. In his role as Independent Director and member of the Compensation and Governance Committee, Clamadieu is holding significant responsibility in determining the company’s direction, but considering the gamble with Suez, Axa’s leadership would be justified in asking questions about his suitability to serve in a leading role in insurance – an industry that by definition deals in long-term assessments. These trying times call for a steady hand and a thorough long-term strategy. Whether Clamadieu’s gamble will pay off remains to be seen, but if history is a lesson to be learned, the desire for short-term windfalls always loses out to long-term thinking.

the grumpy old men: ENGIE : Africa brings Off-Grid Power to over 4 Million People, establishing its Position as Market Leader on the Continent share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 02/18/2020 | 09:51am GMT NAIROBI, Kenya -- ENGIE Africa (hxxp://www.ENGIE-Africa.com) is pleased to announce that it has successfully accelerated the Access to Energy (A2E) strategy that it launched in 2018. ENGIE has achieved this through the development of its three A2E off-grid energy solution companies: Fenix International, ENGIE Mobisol, and ENGIE PowerCorner. With these three innovative entities, ENGIE Africa is bringing decentralized electricity to more than four million people in nine countries (Uganda, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Nigeria, Benin, Côte d'Ivoire, and Mozambique). This growth is in line with the Group's ambition to reach millions of households and businesses with clean, distributed energy across Africa. Fenix, which was acquired by ENGIE in 2018, expanded its operations significantly in 2019.

Fenix's inclusive solar home systems for household usages, combined with ENGIE Mobisol's focus on larger households and small business appliances, together with ENGIE PowerCorner's focus on income-generating activities and small-scale industries, enables ENGIE to offer affordable energy products and to extend its customer base from rural to urban areas.

adrian j boris: Engie's haircut weakens its CEO - DJ Plus Engie (EU: ENGI) Intraday Chart of the Action Today: Friday 6 December 2019 More charts from the Engie Bursary Olivier Pinaud, Agefi PARIS (Agefi-Dow Jones) - "The market has understood that Engie has a distinct position," Engie CEO Isabelle Kocher said recently in an interview with Agefi-Dow Jones. Part of the energy group's board of directors is clearly not sharing his opinion. Thursday, the leader had to step into the slot in Le Figaro to defend his record as several directors of the group campaign behind the scenes for the non-renewal of his term in May, as revealed by BFM Business Wednesday. Isabelle Kocher is strongly opposed to the sale of the gas infrastructure of the energy group pushed by part of its board. "Gas infrastructures are very important, they are part of our DNA, they are more and more international and we are preparing them for the gradual greening of gas," the director general told Le Figaro. Analysts at Oddo BHF have a different opinion. "Engie's gas infrastructures are regulated activities that are growing at a slower pace than the rest of the group, and their sale, even partial, could accelerate Engie's growth profile, with the implementation of a reinvestment strategy for activities with high potential ", explains Oddo BHF. A spin-off of assets that Isabelle Kocher initiated when she took over at the helm in 2016 by selling Engie's energy markets activities to reinvest in growing businesses, such as renewables, or less capital intensive, such as Services. The question of the future of gas infrastructure According to Oddo BHF, the gas infrastructure, which includes four companies (GRDF, GRTgaz, Elengy and Storengy), represents an enterprise value of 33 billion euros. Once retired from debt and minority interests, which are important at GRTgaz and Elengy, these assets represent a potential equity pool of € 13.7 billion. The question of the future of gas infrastructure, including the sale of part of the capital is anything but a surprise since the Pact law included an article on the privatization of GRTgaz, hides a deeper debate on the strategy led by the team Isabelle Kocher and its effects on the share price. "Some want to make short-term stock market performance the alpha and the omega of a strategy," laments the leader in Le Figaro, emphasizing the performance of the title since the beginning of the year: + 15%. Yet the balance sheet does not plead in his favor. Engie does less well than all his great European counterparts. Since the beginning of the year, Portuguese EDP has gained 19%, Spanish Iberdrola 24% and Italian Enel 32%. Same comparison and same result since May 2016, date of the arrival at the controls of Isabelle Kocher: Engie gained a very small 1%, when EDP took 15%, Iberdrola 39% and Enel 70%. As a result, according to Morgan Stanley analysts, the Engie stock currently trades at around 11 times the estimated earnings per share for 2021, "at a discount of 20% compared to comparable integrated utilities". Faced with these figures, some administrators push for an electroshock. To defend herself, Isabelle Kocher points out that rumors of dissension with her board "suggest that in one company there could be a management strategy on the one hand and the strategy of the board of directors on the other, whereas definition is the board that validates the company's strategy ". Developed by Isabelle Kocher and her teams, the three-year plan presented last February has been validated by the board. In this maelstrom, and while the unions are expressing concerns about a possible dismantling of the group, the state, the largest shareholder of Engie with 23% of the capital, is strangely silent. Already bogged down in EDF's difficulties, the government was counting on a rebound in the Engie share price to sell shares and fuel the innovation fund. At 14.56 euros Friday morning, the title Engie is barely higher than the price of 13.80 euros which he had sold for the last time shares of the energy group in September 2017. Thursday, the compensation and governance council of Engie met. When asked by L'Agefi, the group did not make a statement. -Olivier Pinaud, The Agefi. ed: ECH Agefi-Dow Jones The financial newswire (END) Dow Jones Newswires December 06, 2019 03:35 ET (08:35 GMT)
