China Everbright said the potential transaction will expand its presence and influence in Tianjin. It also provides a solid foundation for further waste water treatment projects to be undertaken in the municipality and the surrounding regions, the group said in a bourse filing on Sunday.

China Everbright's unit, Beijing Everbright Water Investment Management, has yet to enter into a transfer agreement with the company's sole shareholder.

The shareholder is Tianjin Binhai Environmental Protection Asset Development. It is principally engaged in, among other things, the construction of infrastructure for environmental protection industrial parks, household waste-to-energy, wastewater treatment, and the manufacturing and research and development of environmental protection materials and environmental protection equipment.

Both parties will negotiate the terms of the agreement, including the payment of the consideration, the timing and manner of payment and conditions precedent to the potential transaction. The agreement will be drawn up in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Tianjin Property Rights Exchange.

Shares in China Everbright ended trading flat at 22.5 Singapore cents on Friday.
