Atlantic Power +9.5% on report of exploring possible sale

Atlantic Power (AT) spiked to a 9.5% gain this afternoon after SparkSpread reported the power producer has hired advisers to explore a potential merger or sale.

Atlantic Power reportedly tapped Goldman Sachs and Greenhill to help it consider whether a sale or merger makes sense and can be negotiated.

    I haven't heard of SparkSpread up to now, nor whether they have a shred of cred. I'm with Pdred, when I hear it from the company, I'll believe it. Meanwhile , I will watch AT slowly claw back from the abyss.

    Wow 53% up from the low 2.11 in 3 months, with negative EPS! I guess the rumor is not recent.

    Sparkspread is an industry news aggregator popular with engineers and operators in the power generation industry. Unfortunately it is subscription based.


    I happened to hear from a disgruntled former AP employee 1 week ago that a sale was looming but she would not divulge her source.

    "Disgruntled former employee" -- now that's information you can take to the bank! :-)
