Page 1 / 2 M&A Rumour and Activity The Australian market finished the week 4.2% lower with the S&P / ASX100 ending at 4207 points amid ongoing concerns about the Chinese economy and speculation of a rate hike by the US Federal Reserve. Weaker domestic data, including slower GDP growth and contraction in retail sales, also contributed to the slump. The Australian dollar weakened 3.42% for the week to end at US69.14 cents, after solid US employment figures raised bets that the US Fed will raise interest rates in September. It has been reported by Business Spectator that Canada’s TransAlta Corp (TSX:TA) had emerged as a potential bidder for IFM Australian Infrastructure Fund’s $2 billion Pacific Hydro business. TransAlta Corp joins Origin Energy Limited (ASX:ORG), AGL Energy Limited (ASX:AGL), SunEdison (NYSE:SUNE), AES Corporation (NYSE:AES), Morrison & Co, Acciona, S.A. (CATS:ANA) and TerraForm Power, Inc. (NasdaqGS:TERP) as potential bidders for the Pacific Hydro portfolio, which is split almost evenly between Australia and South America. It is noted that IFM may seek to sell the assets in the two regions separately. The Business Spectator has also reported that HRL Morrison & Co is strongly positioned to buy AGL’s 50% owned Macarthur Wind Farm in Victoria, which is Australia’s largest windfarm with an installed capacity of 420MW. Other parties speculated to be interested in the stake includes China Huaneng Group and Infrastructure Capital’s Energy Infrastructure Trust. AGL’s 50% stake is said to be worth $500 million, while the remaining 50% stake is owned by Malakoff Corporation Berhad (KLSE:MALAKOF), which bought the stake from Meridian Energy for $130 million (including project debt of $529 million) in June 2013 at an implied enterprise value of $659 million. Following the sale of its business in the United States, Infigen Energy (ASX:IFN) is now seeking to pursue growth opportunities in Australia. An undisclosed turbine supplier had also acquired options to purchase a 50% equity interest in the Bodangora and Forsayth wind farm developments, which will provide Infigen with certain fees should the option be exercised. Infigen also said that it has equity interest in c.1,200MW of wind and solar sites with development approval, and may sell or jointly develop these projects with third parties (with Infigen undertaking an operator role). Global news Toll-road developer Huabei Expressway Co., Ltd. (SZSE:000916) is rumoured to be interested to acquire 100% of Zhongli Talesun Solar Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Zhongli Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd. (SZSE:002309), for an undisclosed value. Zhongli Talesun Solar Co., Ltd. manufactures grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) modules in China, with a global sales network in Germany, America, Singapore, Switzerland and Japan. Suzlon Energy Limited (BSE:532667), a manufacturer of wind turbine generators, is looking at various options to raise money to retire its debt, including capitalizing on its German subsidiary, Senvion SE. Plans include raising money through private equity, private placement, or a stake sale through the stock market. Senvion SE is engaged in developing, constructing, and distributing onshore and offshore wind turbines in Germany and internationally. Listed Philippines conglomerate, Ayala Corp. (PSE:AC) sold its ownership in Luzon Wind Energy Holdings BV to DGA NLREC BV Luzon Wind, a unit of Mitsubishi Corp, for an undisclosed value on 3 September 2015. Luzon Wind has ownership interests in an 81MW wind farm in the Philippines. News Headlines and Key Sector Developments Brisbane Times had reported that Alinta Energy plans to sell solar and battery systems to households in Western Australia from November 2015. Meanwhile, the Queensland Productivity Commission had been tasked to determine a fair price for solar energy, with a report due by mid-2016. Ticker News/Event Ticker News/Event ASX:IFN Announced FY15 results of $133.8m in revenue (8% decrease from the previous corresponding period), EBITDA of $83.5m (10% decrease) and NLAT of $303.6m (vs NLAT of $8.9m) primarily due to the impairment of $284.5m of its US assets LSE:JLG Reported 6M15 results of £32.6m NPAT Had committed a further £12.1m to the Hornsdale Wind Farm Project in South Australia and has been shortlisted for a PPP project for an energy-from-waste plant in Australia Source: Capital IQ, Company Announcements, LCC research
