Oct. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- Two shareholders of the Nam Theun 2 Power Company (NTPC) have increased their stake in the company, which operates the largest hydroelectric plant in Laos. On September 29, Electricité de France International (EDFi) acquired an extra 5% of NTPC, while the Electricity Generating Public Company of Thailand Limited (EGCO) increased its holding by 10%.

The shares were sold by the Italian-Thai Development Public Company, which has divested its entire holding in NTPC. NTPC shares are now divided between EDFi (40%), EGCO (35%) and the Lao Holding State Enterprise, with 25%.
