CLINTON, Conn., July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Connecticut Water Service, Inc. (CTWS) today issued the following statement regarding recent mischaracterizations of Eversource Energy's (ES) July 2, 2018 acquisition proposal. To avoid any confusion regarding the terms of Eversource's revised acquisition proposal, Connecticut Water clarified that Eversource's proposal is not for $66.00 per share. Eversource has only made a less than 1 percent increase to $64.00 per share from its prior inadequate, below market proposal.
Connecticut Water Service Inc rejected a revised takeover offer from Eversource Energy, according to regulatory filings from both companies on Friday, insisting it would consider abandoning its planned merger with another utility only for a much higher offer. The episode is the latest in a contentious four-way water utility merger battle that emerged after Connecticut Water and SJW Group announced in March they planned to combine, with California Water Service Group also involved. Clinton-based Connecticut Water, which turned down a previous takeover proposal from Eversource Energy, said it had received a $64 per share offer on July 2, but its board unanimously rejected this as it was "inadequate and still undervalues" the company, given it was worth less than 1 percent more than the dismissed April deal.

California's utilities regulator has told SJW Group it must seek approval for its proposed merger with Connecticut Water Service Inc, according to a document provided by the regulator to Reuters, a move that creates a potentially significant impediment to the deal.
