PARIS (Reuters) – French utility EDF (PA:EDF)’s shares lost earlier gains and were down 1.3% after French financial daily Les Echos reported the French government is leaning towards injecting over 2 billion euros ($2.27 billion) in capital into the state-owned firm.
“According to several sources, the State (…) had decided in favour of a rapid reinforcement of the group’s equity, via the injection of more than 2 billion euros”, les Echos said, adding a formal decision had not yet been taken.
The French finance ministry had no comment on the report.
