Gamesa Corporacion Tecnologica S.A.(GCTAF)- OTCPK - Current

    • Siemens (OTCPK:SIEGY +0.3%) and Gamesa (OTCPK:GCTAF) have rejected a non-binding offer from General Electric (GE +0.3%) for assets belonging to the Adwen wind power joint venture between Gamesa and Areva (OTCPK:ARVCF), Reuters reports.
    • Gamesa is merging with Siemens' wind power division to create the world's biggest builder of wind farms in a €10B ($11 billion) deal, but the Adwen venture has been a sticking point, as Siemens does not need the technology from Areva because it has developed its own offshore wind turbines.
    • If Areva does not find a buyer before a mid-September deadline set when Siemens and Gamesa announced their merger in June, the most likely outcome would be for Gamesa to exercise its purchase option and take over Areva's 50% stake, according to the report.
