Evergy denies report it received $15 billion NextEra Energy acquisition offer


Kansas-based Evergy is denying a published report that it has turned aside a $15 billion acquisition bid from NextEra Energy.

Reuters had reported that anonymous sources had indicated Evergy, a utility with customers in Kansas and Missouri, turned down NextEra’s offer, to which Evergy replied with a statement saying “there is currently no offer or bid from any third party for a potential transaction.”

Greentech Media reported that Evergy indicated it will move ahead with its Sustainability Transformation Plan to cut emissions by 80% by 2050.
