The Tilt Renewables Ltd (ASX: TLT) share price broke its all time record high today as the company announced that it had received non binding offers regarding its acquisition.

Shares in the renewable energy operator reached $6.5 earlier today, taking the company to its highest price since its listing in 2018.

Currently, the Tilt share price is trading 1.17% higher at a price of $6.07.

Why is the Tilt share price pushing higher?

In today’s release, Tilt advised that it has received non binding offers to acquire the company from a number of parties. This comes after its major shareholder, Infratil Ltd (ASX: IFT), recently completed a strategic review of the company. Infratil mentioned that it welcomed the proposals to acquire the company.

Moving forward, the Tilt board will provide a number of parties access to due diligence material to enable them to prepare binding proposals. However, as yet no decision has been made in relation to Infratil’s shareholding of Tilt.

Tilt advised that participation in Infratil’s strategic review process is not a prerequisite to it considering any proposals.

The board also noted that this is still early in the process and there is no certainty that Tilt will receive any binding proposal or that any proposals received will be recommended by the board.

Infratil management comments

Infratil CEO Marko Bogoievski welcomed the update, saying:

We have received strong interest in Tilt in response to our strategic review announcement in December. This is the logical next step in what is a competitive process, reflecting the strong demand globally for high quality renewable platforms like Tilt.
