Cash return from SSE
Big six energy suppler SSE (SSE) is considering a return of value to shareholders after selling a stake in its Scotia Gas Networks arm. The 16.7% equity stake is being sold to the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority for £621m. This could be reinvested in the business but funds back to investors as a shareholder sweetener looks likely, implying a potential 60p per share payout. The group will announce its decision on 9 November. (SF)
