Kazakhmys sells power station stake for $1.3 bln
LONDON Dec 9 (Reuters) - Copper miner Kazakhmys has agreed to sell its stake in Kazakhstan's largest power station to Kazakhstan sovereign wealth fund Samruk-Kazyna in a deal worth $1.3 billion.
The London-listed company said on Monday it had agreed to sell its remaining 50 percent interest in Ekibastuz GRES-1, the largest power station in Kazakhstan, and 100 percent of the issued share capital of Kazhydro to a Samruk-Kazyna subsidiary.
It said the deal's net proceeds of about $1.25 billion would substantially strengthen the company's financial position during the development phase of its major copper growth projects Bozshakol and Aktogay.
