Hitachi made best offer
Hitachi Ltd , Japan’s largest industrial electronics maker, is close to buying British nuclear new-build project Horizon, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.
“Hitachi has made the best offer and has a good chance to get Horizon,” a source familiar with the matter told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Another person with knowledge of the proceedings also said Hitachi, which is leading a consortium bidding for the project, was likely to be the winner.
Japanese media said on Saturday the deal was expected to be worth more than 50 billion yen ($628.5 million) while analysts have put the value of Horizon at about 500 million euros ($646.6 million).
