This offer is only 5% higher than the quotes of the shares of the Portuguese company at the closure of the market on Friday. Operating profit EDP, that operates in several countries in Europe, Brazil, Mexico and the United States, amounted to about 1 billion 100 million euros. About 40% of them come from alternative energy.
