August 27 (Renewables Now) - German renewable energy firm PNE AG (ETR:PNE3), which mainly focuses on wind power, has received an indicative non-binding takeover offer from Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Partners (MSIP).

PNE confirmed this on Monday in response to market rumours. It said that MSIP’s proposal outlines possible key parameters for a potential takeover bid for all outstanding PNE shares at a price range of EUR 3.50 (USD 3.89) to EUR 3.80 per share.

MSIP is holding talks with PNE as an advisor of the North Haven Infrastructure Partners III infrastructure fund. The discussions revolve around possibilities of co-operations and investments, the statement mentions.

PNE noted that any possible transaction is subject to the conclusion of due diligence and the signing of a definitive agreement.
