Shanghai Electric to buy 40% of Ansaldo Energia
Shanghai Electric has agreed to buy a 40 per cent stake in Ansaldo Energia, the Italian power equipment maker, in another sign of China’s interest in investing in the country.

Shanghai Electric, will pay ¢400m to Fondo Strategico Italiano (FSI), Italy’s state-backed investment fund, which holds 85 per cent of the turbine maker. The agreement is expected to be closed by the end of the year.

Maurizio Tamagnini, chief executive for FSI, called the move a “long-term” deal, confirming that the fund would maintain its majority stake and would “accompany Ansaldo, in the near future, to an IPO”.

Finmeccanica, the state-controlled defence company that used to own Ansaldo and holds a 15 per cent share, is due to quit the company via the IPO. “The agreement with Shanghai Electric will allow Ansaldo to have better growth perspectives,” said Mr Tamagnini, who did not rule out a capital increase, if needed.

FSI, which has share capital of ¢4.4bn, bought its shareholding in Ansaldo Energia in December in a move by Finmeccanica to reduce its debt and focus on its core activities.

The Genoa group had received other offers, including from Siemens of Germany and Doosan of South Korea.

Ansaldo and Shanghai Electric, majority-owned by the city municipality, will produce gas turbines in China to be sold on the Asian markets. A research plant will also be set up to develop gas turbine projects. The partnership is expected to create 500 new jobs.

上海电气(Shanghai Electric)已同意购入意大利电力设备制造商安萨尔多能源公司(Ansaldo Energia)40%股权,这是中国有意投资意大利的又一个迹象。

上海电气将向目前持有这家发电机厂商85%股权的政府背景的投资基金——意大利战略基金(Fondo Strategico Italiano,简称FSI)支付4亿欧元。预计协议将在今年底完成。

FSI首席执行官毛里西奥?塔马尼尼(Maurizio Tamagnini)称此举为一项“长期”协议,他还证实该基金将保留多数股权,并将“在不久的将来陪伴安萨尔多能源启动首次公开发行(IPO)”。

安萨尔多能源曾经的所有者、现在持股15%的政府控股的防务集团Finmeccanica,将通过IPO退出安萨尔多能源。塔马尼尼表示:“与上海电气的协议将让安萨尔多能源获得更好的增长前景。”他没有排除在必要情况下增资的可能性。

FSI拥有44亿欧元股本,去年12月,该基金购入安萨尔多能源股权,此举旨在让Finmeccanica减少债务,聚焦于核心业务。

总部位于热那亚的安萨尔多能源收到过其他收购报价,包括德国的西门子(Siemens)和韩国的斗山集团(Doosan)。

安萨尔多能源与上海电气将在中国生产燃气轮机,在亚洲市场销售。此外还将建立一个研发机构,以开发燃气轮机项目。预计双方的合作将创造500个新的就业岗位。上海市政府持有上海电气多数股权。
