DTE Energy , a utility holding company, said it plans to sell a 50% stake in some industrial and power projects to a unit of General Electric for $805 million.
DTE Energy will use some of the proceeds for stock buybacks by the end of the year, according to a company statement. The deal is expected to close in late August.
As part of the deal, DTE Energy will manage the day-to-day operations of the projects and act as the managing member of the LLC that owns them.
Morgan Stanley advised DTE Energy.
