Entergy, ITC Holdings withdraw grid sale plan in Texas
HOUSTON Aug 9 (Reuters) - Entergy Corp and ITC Holdings withdrew their plan to seek Texas approval to divest Entergy's electric transmission assets in that state on Friday.
The Texas Public Utility Commission was the first of several states that must act on the transaction valued at $1.78 billion.
