‘Nuon does not prefer Italian firm’

Dutch power utility Nuon does not have a preference for a takeover by the Italian energy concern Eni over Vattenfall of Sweden and Denmark’s Dong, reports Saturday’s Financieele Dagblad newspaper.

The FD claims reports by a rival newspaper that Nuon favours Eni last week are incorrect. ‘All three have an equal chance,’ the FD quotes an anonymous source as saying.
Nuon is expected to make its favourite candidate known shortly after the publication of its annual figures on February 16, the paper says.
The commercial value of Nuon is estimated at €7bn euros, according to media reports.
