Australia's Envestra gets takeover bid from Cheung Kong

SYDNEY, May 8 (Reuters) - Australia’s Envestra Ltd said on Thursday it has received a conditional takeover offer from Hong Kong’s Cheung Kong Group, valuing the natural gas distributor at A$2.37 billion ($2.21 billion) and trumping an earlier bid from Australian Pipeline Ltd (APA).

Cheung Kong, which currently holds a 17.5 percent stake in Envestra, proposed a cash offer of A$1.32 per share, Envestra said in a statement after the market close.
