Potential Energy Buyouts

Description:

From 24/7 Wall St.

With the recently announced buyout of TXU by KKR and Texas Pacific Group in the largest private equity to date, we simultaneously gave a big list of competitors with high market caps in the power generation business.

What is most interesting is that besides TXU, the sector is doing much better than the market during the time the drop came in the overall markets. So investors are either being defensive OR they are still thinking more deals are coming. Cramer noted more deals were likely at the time.

Besides the Blackstone, Texas Pacific, Carlyle, KKR, and others, Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway are still deemed as potential bidders among many other firms for other power generation assets.

Here are 13 comparable players in the energy space that could be potential buyouts.
