GDF Suez to Give up Effective Control of Suez Environnement- Report

12/05/2012 | 08:59am US/Eastern

French power company GDF Suez SA (>> GDF SUEZ) won't renew a shareholder pact giving it effective control of waste and water management company Suez Environnement(>> SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT), a decision enabling it trim debt from its books, La Tribune reports Wednesday.

GDF Suez is likely to announce it won't renew a pact binding its 35.7% stake in Suez Environnement with the minority stakes of Belgian billionaire Albert Frere, state-owned financial company Caisse des Depots et Consignations, Areva (>> AREVA), CNP Assurances (>> CNP ASSURANCES) and Sofina (>> SOFINA). The total stake held under the shareholder pact is 48.4%, La Tribune reports on its website, citing unidentified sources.

Through the operation, GDF Suez would exclude the full debt load of Suez Environnement in its accounts. As a result, it would reduce its debt load by 5 billion euros ($6.5 billion), says the report.

The pact comes up for renewal in July. Officials at GDF Suez declined to comment.

At 1338 GMT, GDF shares were down 0.06% at EUR17.43, and at 1340 GMT, shares of Suez Environnement were up 1.47% at EUR8.58.
