Brutélé’s board of directors has validated the sale of its shares in Voo, the last step before launching the official sale process, reports L’Echo on Wednesday, as well as Le Soir and La Libre Belgique.
The agreement reached between Brutélé and Enodia (parent company of Nethys, which owns Voo) will likely restart the process of selling Voo, which was abandoned in 2020 after an attempted sale to the American fund Providence.
Indeed, to be able to sell Voo, Nethys, the subsidiary of the Liège intermunicipal company Enodia and responsible for the sale of the Walloon operator, had to find an agreement with Brutélé, which owns part of the Voo network in 30 municipalities. in Brussels and Wallonia. These 30 municipalities will also have to endorse this decision of the Brutélé board of directors via their respective municipal councils.
The official sale procedure should start in April and the choice of the future buyer of Voo should be made in September 2021.
