A speaker of EdF has confirmed the companys intention to file an offer for the acquisition of Photowatt, French news agency AFP reported. In doing so, EdF corroborated remarks made by French president Nicolas Sarkozy ahead of his visit to Photowatts headquarters in Bourgoin-Jallieu, the Departement of Isere (Rhones-Alpes) on an election campaign tour. There he is expected to announce EdFs involvement in the restructuring of the group.
It is reported that EdF is not the only candidate interested in acquiring the company, however, which has been going through a period of restructuring since November 2011.
According to reports, bidders have been encouraged to submit their offers until February 10. The Court of Commerce of Vienne now has until February 21 to decide on the new owner.
Photowatt formerly belonged to Canadian ATS, which was not able to guarantee the financial survival of the group.
