Sembcorp Industries Unit Launches Offer To Buy Cascal Shares

SINGAPORE -(Dow Jones)- Sembcorp Industries Ltd. (U96.SG) said Friday its unit Sembcorp Utilities Pte Ltd. has launched a tender offer to buy all shares of New York-listed waste water company Cascal N.V. (HOO). Sembcorp Utilities will pay US$6.75 a share to Cascal's holders if at least 80% of the shares are offered by June 21. If a lesser number of shares are offered, it will pay US$6.40 apiece, Sembcorp said in a statement. The move follows a clearance this week from a U.S. court to the Singapore-based utility to buy Cascal, setting aside objections of the American company. In April, Sembcorp Utilities offered to buy Cascal for US$206 million. The offer came after Cascal's majority shareholder Biwater Investments Ltd. agreed to sell its 58.4% stake to Sembcorp Utilities. But Cascal's board rejected the offer saying it was "unacceptable and coercive." Cascal filed a lawsuit, claiming the Singapore company violated U.S. Securities laws and breached confidentiality agreements. The lawsuit sought injunctive relief and recovery of damages. -Gaurav Raghuvanshi; Dow Jones Newswires; +65 64154 154; [email protected]
