If the Czech energy holding decides to sell a minority stake in its new arm EPIF, which will group the energy assets, the new investor must be one of the global infrastructure funds with clear history.
The Czech energy group Energeticky a Prumyslovy Holding (EPH) is planning a new investor for its newly-formed arm EP Infrastructure (EPIF). The company will sell its minority stake either in the initial public offering or directly to a new investor. If the Czech energy holding chooses a direct sale of the shares, the chairman of EPH’s board of director, Daniel Kretinsky says that the new investor must be a strong global player. “In this case we would select only a company from among leading global infrastructure funds with a clear business history,” Kretinsky informed the portal vEnergetike.sk. A new partner in the company EPIF could purchase a 30-percent stake under current considerations.
