Due Diligence

An end to this process is not foreseeable. Transmission and distribution network operators have proven in the past that they can successfully implement this change as service providers to society. In order to be able to cope this responsibility in the future, not only strategic foresight, but also significant investments in the construction of a future-proof infrastructure are necessary.

The energy system of Luxembourg is also undergoing profound changes. In addition to an increasing share of renewable generation capacity, a significant increase in peak load has also been forecasted, as Google plans to build a huge data centre in the Grand Duchy. These developments offer considerable opportunities for the Luxembourg electricity and gas network operator Creos, which also operates networks in neighbouring Germany. The growing importance of the network operator in connection with future developments results in a significant increase in the value of the company from which shareholder Ardian plans to profit. Ardian acquired shares in Creos in 2012, which have to be sold. As was the case within another Due Dilligence in 2012, Ardian again commissioned E-Bridge to analyse the value of the company.

Within the due diligence, E-Bridge was able to develop a realistic inventory and a meaningful future forecast for the grid costs from Creos. Although the implementation time was ambitious, all relevant data could be processed and presented accordingly. This allowed E-Bridge to help selling the shares for a substantial price.
