DPL: a tempting buy for E.ON

Consolidation is certain to happen in the US utility industry, with safe regulated businesses being the current stock market favorites. DPL would be a good acquisition for a European utility that could maximize its regulated return on investment through cost control.

Dynegy/Enron: tortoise 1 hare 0

Dynegy, backed by its part-owner ChevronTexaco, could benefit from gaining Enron's assets at a fire-sale price. The energy trader, once darling of the markets, is trying to cling onto survival after financial irregularities brought on a startling fall from grace. But Dynegy should bear in mind the potential difficulties in integrating two very different companies.

Dynegy: change at the top

ChevronTexaco has appointed a senior ChevronTexaco executive to the position of chairman, signaling the oil major's increased role in the troubled energy trader. While a takeover is possible, for now ChevronTexaco should focus on getting Dynergy back on track after falling credibility amongst energy trading companies.

Dynegy: hoping it's hit rock bottom

US energy trader Dynegy's $450 million pretax restructuring charge has brought a 10% drop in the company's share price. Like many other energy traders, Dynegy has tried to increase liquidity and stabilize its balance sheet in the light of regulatory pressure and investor disappointment - but the company's situation just seems to get worse.

Dynegy: quitting energy trading worldwide

The downturn in the energy trading market has claimed another victim: Dynegy is retreating from wholesale energy marketing and trading worldwide. The company will refocus and step away from capital-intensive businesses to reduce borrowing. As yet another company leaves the market, concerns will increase in Europe over liquidity and volatility, with the market controlled by fewer large players.

Dynegy: still in trouble

Last week's moves at Dynegy look like the work of new CEO Glenn Tilton, drafted in by major shareholder ChevronTexaco to get the struggling Texas energy trader back on track. Mr Tilton faces an uphill battle, however, as the US energy trading industry remains deep in crisis.

Dynegy: struggling to survive

The fortunes of former energy giant Dynegy continue to go from bad to worse: if its share price does not rise above $1, it could be delisted from the Exchange. Regaining investor confidence will be a tough task, and its extremely weak position rather thwarts its ability to negotiate when selling assets. The company's future is not looking promising.

Dynegy: the king is dead, long live the king

Dynegy rescued its rival to become the world's largest power and gas trader, but it may be some time before anyone outside the company knows whether or not it has got a good deal. After such a rushed transaction, Dynegy will need to spend time evaluating the true state of Enron's finances, while the SEC unscrambles the partnerships that were behind the huge fall in the company's share price.

E.ON: looking to join the American energy rush

The company plans to buy two big US energy companies in the near future, adding to the US presence it will gain with PowerGen. The prospect of greater earnings from an energy market that (despite being the world's largest) has yet to reach European levels of competition and consolidation clearly retains its appeal for European energy companies.
