COPENHAGEN Jan 17 Four of DONG Energy's
five existing minority shareholders have opted to
participate in a planned capital increase by subscribing for new
shares, the Danish state-owned utility said on Friday.
The four shareholders, SEAS-NVE, SYD ENERGI, Nyfors
Entreprise and Insero Horsens, which are regional energy
companies from different areas of Denmark, will invest 2.05

Goldman Sachs said in October that they will invest a total 11
