This article focuses on the part-privatisation of Dutch utility Nuon. According to a spokesman for Gelderland province, a foreign utility would take a 40 percent holding as an initial step to full ownership of Nuon. Potential bidders in the deal, which is valued at between £2 billion and £2.5 billion, include Vattenfall and Danish group Dong. Nuon and Essent became possible takeover targets following the failed merger deal between the two companies.
