IBERDROLA SA today announced agreement by which IBERDROLA USA will sell to Direct Energy the 100% of its unregulated gas and electricity retail companies Energetix and NYSEG Solutions, both based in New York State for $110.2 million.
The two companies being sold provide electricity, natural gas and energy related products and services to residential, small business, large commercial and industrial customers.
As of the end of May 2012 Energetix and NYSEG Solutions supplied electricity and gas to 247,500 customers.
The transaction involves the sale to Direct Energy, U.S. subsidiary of Centrica, of 100% of the shares indirectly held by IBERDROLA, through its wholly-owned subsidiary IBERDROLA USA, in Energetix and NYSEG Solutions. The transaction is subject to the applicable regulatory approvals.
This transaction is within the framework of IBERDROLA’s strategy of divesting non-core businesses, and follow a previous transaction in February 2012 whereby IBERDROLA USA agreed to sell The Energy Network, LLC, the holding company for TEN Companies, Hartford Steam Company and CNE Power I, LLC., to New Jersey-based Energenic-US, LLC.
