 |  April 23, 2020

Brazilian power company Eneva pulled out of a deal to buy rival AES Tietê after the AES board rejected the bid, Eneva and AES Tiete stated in filings. 

Eneva announced on March 1 a hostile bid for AES Tiete, controlled by AES, in a 6.6 billion real (US$1.25 billion) shares and cash transaction. 

On Monday, April 20, AES’ Chief Financial Officer Clarissa Della Nina said that AES would be willing to keep discussing the takeover bid if the terms were improved. 

Eneva stated it was pulling out of the deal after AES Tiete announced it would not extend voting rights to preferred shares, according to Eneva breaking rules of the stock exchange segment in which AES Tiete is listed.
