CGE Power falls as banks demand cash

The company – backed by Abbey National, Bayerische Landesbank, Bank of Scotland, HVB, Lloyds TSB and The Royal Bank of Scotland – says momentum failed as its plans to acquire Killingholm and Damhead plants by using the debt market fell through.“These two plants were integral to CGE Power’s plans,” said a source. “But ScottishPower and Centrica came out and made cash offers. Meanwhile CGE Power couldn’t get unanimity from the lenders which control the plants – they wanted cash today.”
