Speaking at a parliamentary hearing, Jean-Pierre Clamadieu also said that the expiry of Veolia’s offer and the fact that no counter-bid has emerged has put Engie under pressure.
Clamadieu said that Veolia has committed to keep workforce until the end of 2023 in case of acquisition of Suez.
Engie owns almost 32% of Suez.
