Kenon Announces Updates on Discussions on a Potential Sale of IC Power's Businesses in Latin America

SINGAPORE, October 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

In July 2017, Kenon Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: KEN) (TASE: KEN) ("Kenon"), announced that it has been approached by, and received indicative, non-binding offers from, parties looking to acquire some or all of the businesses of Kenon's subsidiary IC Power Ltd. ("IC Power") in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Kenon today announces that it is in advanced discussions with a top-tier financial investor with Latin American power sector holdings with the intention of agreeing the terms of a sale of IC Power's assets in Latin America and the Caribbean. 

Such a transaction, if agreed and consummated, would be consistent with Kenon's strategy to realize the value of its businesses for its shareholders, which may include monetization of its businesses. There is no assurance that such discussions will result in any sale agreement, and if a sale agreement is executed, it will be subject to customary closing conditions.
