Enron Prepared To Sell Trading Arm, Its Largest Source of Revenue

LCG, Jan. 14, 2002--UBS AG, Switzerland's largest bank, is prepared to take over Enron Corp's trading unit, relates the New York Times.

Enron will give up its equity stake, an unexpected development in the deal. Enron will have an interest in the venture's profits, although conditions of the deal will favor UBS' buyout of that interest after five years. If UBS decides against that move, its 33 percent royalty payments on profits would increase to 45 percent.

A rival bidder for the trading operations, Citigroup Inc., was passed over when Enron's unsecured creditor committee, representing banks and holders of Enron debt, selected UBS' offer.

In order for the deal to be realized, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Arthur Gonzalez will have to approve the terms, which emerged from overnight negotiations in New York City. Documentation which will be submitted to the court will also be posted on Enron's website by 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
