  1. NOVEMBER 25, 2019 / 5:05 AM / UPDATED 19 HOURS AGO Alitalia to receive additional taxpayers' money after rescuers backtrack - sources Francesca Landini 3 MIN READ MILAN, Nov 25 (Reuters) - The Italian government will lend additional money to carrier Alitalia to keep it afloat after a group of potential rescuers backtracked last week, two sources close to the matter said. By granting a new 400 million euro ($441 million) loan to the loss-making airline even if there is no buyer at the horizon, Rome will challenge state aid rules with the risk of angering the European Commission, one of the sources said. Italy’s industry ministry did not respond to a request for comment. Alitalia has already received 900 million euros from the government since May 2017, when it was put into special administration following a failed restructuring attempt. It has neither repaid this loan nor the 150 million euros in interest due on it. Despite several cost-cutting measures implemented since May 2017 by the three state-appointed administrators running it, the carrier is leaking cash and is expected to run out of money by year-end. Italian railway group Ferrovie dello Stato, which was in talks with infrastructure group Atlantia and U.S. carrier Delta Air Lines, said last week it was not yet able to form a consortium of rescuers for the carrier. Even German carrier Lufthansa, which offered a commercial partnership with Alitalia, said it was not prepared to invest in the Italian airline. After granting Ferrovie more than a year to present a plan for Alitalia, Rome has decided to appoint a new administrator and unlock 400 million euros it had earmarked for the airline subject to the condition that the railway group presented a binding offer. That condition has now been scrapped, the sources said. Without fresh financial resources the airline would face liquidation, putting at risk 11,600 jobs and creating a major headache for the government. “The industry ministry will ask the current administrators to quit to make room for a new administrator who will have the mandate to cut the carrier’s workforce and airplanes,” one of the sources said. “Rome will use the appointment of a new administrator as a way to bypass EU state aid rules and grant an additional 400 million euros to Alitalia,” the source added. Industry analysts calculate Alitalia has already burnt through roughly 9 billion of euros in taxpayers’ money. https://www.reuters.com/article/alitalia-rescue-government/alitalia-to-receive-additional-taxpayers-money-after-rescuers-backtrack-sources-idUSL8N2840RM

  3. Sim, ele mesmo. Depois de quebrar a Avianca Brasil e perder o controle da Avianca Holdings, agora o GE quer ter uma participação na Alitalia. Mais uma capítulo da novela italiana... _____________________________________________________ German Efromovich, the ousted chairman of Colombian airline Avianca, is eyeing a comeback via Italy. Efromovich wants to buy a stake in the bankrupt Italian flag-carrier Alitalia SpA, financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported, citing a phone interview. "We wrote a letter to Ferrovie dello Stato and the adviser Mediobanca two weeks ago saying we can purchase up to 30% of Alitalia," said Efromovich, who was removed as the chairman of Avianca Holdings SA last month after a loan breach. "We want to join the company’s management and I’d like to be the chief executive officer, at least at the start." A 30% stake in Alitalia would require at least 240 million euros ($273 million), according to the newspaper. Italian railways operator Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane SpA is leading talks for a possible rescue of Alitalia, which is under special administration. Earlier this month, the Italian government extended the deadline for binding bids to July 15 after potential partners such as EasyJet Plc dropped out of the discussions. Efromovich, who has signed a non-disclosure agreement with Alitalia’s advisers, said he has the money needed for the investment and wouldn’t have to borrow. The Bolivian businessman still owns 78% of Avianca’s voting rights and 52% of the carrier’s capital, Il Sole 24 Ore said. In May, United Continental Holdings said that it took legal action in Bogota to dismiss Efromovich from Avianca’s board for defaulting on a $456 million loan. Efromovich purchased Avianca out of bankruptcy in 2004 and turned it around into Latin America’s second-biggest carrier. But last year, he offered his stake in the airline as collateral for a loan from United Continental, imperiling its future. Alitalia also lured interest from Toto Group, a holding that spans from renewable energies to toll-road concessions that is controlled by Italian entrepreneur Carlo Toto. After a failed attempt in 2008 of investing in Alitalia, Toto Group is now reviewing the option of investing in the carrier "relying on its entrepreneurial experience and adequate economic resources," a company’s spokesman wrote Sunday in a letter to daily Il Messaggero.

  4. https://blueswandaily.com/alitalia-likely-to-issue-new-tender-for-minority-stake-sale-of-alitalia-in-sep-2018/ Italy‘s Uiltrasporti union stated (31-Jul-2018) Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Danilo Toninelli is likely to announced “important” plans regarding Alitalia in Sep-2018. Reports suggest a new tender will be launched for a minority stake in the carrier in Sep-2018, with Alitalia largely seeking to sell a 49% stake to a strategic partner (Messaggero/il Sole 24 Ore/La Stampa, 31-Jul-2018). Answering a question to the Senate, Mr Toninelli said when he mentioned retaining a 51% stake in Alitalia, he “did not talk about nationalisation” of the carrier but rather for it to serve the national interest.
  5. November 2, 2018 Delta Air Lines reportedly submitted a binding offer for investment in Alitalia (ilmessaggero.it/Reuters/Bloomberg, 31-Oct/01-Nov-2018). As previously reported by CAPA, Alitalia confirmed it received one expression of interest (EoI) and two binding offers, with easyJet confirming on 31-Oct-2018 it submitted a revised EoI as part of the sale. https://blueswandaily.com/delta-air-lines-submits-binding-offer-in-alitalia-sale-report/ (Bloomberg) -- Italy’s Alitalia SpA attracted bids from European discounter EasyJet Plc and U.S. giant Delta Air Lines Inc., as the government renews attempts to sell the bankrupt flag-carrier. U.K.-based EasyJet said in a statement Wednesday that it submitted a revised expression of interest in Alitalia, while Delta also presented a proposal. Italian state railway company Ferrovie dello Stato said it also made an offer. The bids raise the prospect of Alitalia gaining multiple owners, with EasyJet bringing its expertise to bear on short-haul operations, and Atlanta-based Delta helping to run lucrative long-haul flights out of Milan and Rome. Ferrovie would most likely act as an anchor investor. State-appointed administrators for Alitalia confirmed that two binding bids had been received, together with one expression of interest, without saying who they were from. Economic Development Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio said that “finding an industrial partner is going to be key.” Unprofitable Alitalia went into liquidation last year when former 49 percent shareholder Etihad Airways of Abu Dhabi pulled the plug on funding and workers rejected a 2 billion-euro ($2.3 billion) recapitalization tied to 1,600 job cuts from a workforce of 12,500. Bridge Loan An initial bid deadline of April 30 this year was extended to Oct. 31 as Italian political parties struggled to form a new government. The airline has been surviving on a 900 million-euro bridge loan that expires in December, though the facility could be extended while the search for investors continues, according to Italian press reports. Deutsche Lufthansa AG, which put its name forward earlier in the process, said it decided not to bid, reiterating recent comments from Chief Executive Officer Carsten Spohr that Alitalia would need to be significantly restructured for it to be interested. Also previously involved in the bidding were EasyJet’s low-cost rival Wizz Air Holdings Plc and Air France-KLM Group, a former Alitalia shareholder previously linked to EasyJet’s approach which is about 10 percent held by Delta. The U.S. company described Alitalia as a long-standing partner in its trans-Atlantic venture with Air France-KLM and said it’s continuing to explore ways to work with the Rome-based carrier. EasyJet said its submission is consistent with its “existing strategy” for Italy, without revealing details. Rail Interest The involvement of Ferrovie could be a complication for EasyJet, since its high-speed trains are a major competitor for Alitalia on domestic routes. The rail group became part of Italy’s planning following a March general election that led to a populist coalition of the Five Star Movement and League parties. The government itself could also take a 15 percent stake, reports have said, something that could form a further obstacle to the wholesale job cuts corporate investors might want to impose. Tim Clark, president of Dubai-based Emirates, the world’s biggest airline on long-haul routes, said Thursday in Monaco that his company didn’t bid but that the Italian market is attractive because of its size and robust demand. “You see carriers circling around the edge of Alitalia, but whether they’ll plunge in and eat it all I don’t know,” he said. --With assistance from William Wilkes.
