The multi-million dollar deal between Malaysia’s largest power utility player Tenaga Nasional Berhad and GMR Energy has received clearance from the Competition Commission.

Under the USD 300-million deal, which was announced in May, Tenaga will acquire 30 per cent stake in GMR Energy’s select assets. In this regard, both parties had entered into a share subscription and shareholder agreements.

The transaction will be through Tenaga’s wholly-owned subsidiary — Power and Energy International.

In a tweet, the Competition Commission of India said it has approved “acquisition of 30 per cent equity share capital of GMR Energy Ltd by Power & Energy International Ltd”.

GMR Energy, part of the diversified GMR group, has interests in power projects, among others.
