Neon Energy to merge with MEO

Neon Energy is set to merge with MEO Australia after it became involved in a takeover bid. It is hoped the move will reduce overhead costs of the two companies, from $8.5million to $3.5million per year. The company is expected to form with a net cash income of $37million and a board will be formed of the merged groups, comprising two directors from Neon, and two directors from MEO.
