MILAN (Reuters) -Australian fund Macquarie is raising legal hurdles over a plan backed by Italy's Treasury for state lender CDP to join forces with U.S. fund KKR to buy Telecom Italia's (TIM) landline grid, three sources said. TIM directors have set a final deadline of June 9 for potential improved offers by the U.S. private equity firm and a rival consortium comprising CDP and Macquarie, worth 21 billion euros and 19.3 billion euros respectively. TIM has deemed both not yet adequate.

(Reuters) -Australia's Macquarie Group on Friday forecast higher short-term income from its lucrative commodities trading business as price volatility and increased hedging boosted the company's annual profit to a record high. The Ukraine war and unpredictable weather in North America have turned Macquarie's oil, gas and power trading unit into a strong profit-making segment, even if prices fall, due to elevated risk management levels and improved trading. The Sydney-based firm's Commodities and Global Markets (CGM) segment posted net profit of about A$6 billion ($4 billion), 54% higher than last year, as more customers hedged against volatile energy markets.
Singapore's Keppel Corp said on Wednesday it would transform itself into an asset manager overseeing $150 billion by 2030 and focusing on green energy, betting it would provide more stable revenue streams and earnings. The plan, which would quadruple its managed assets and see it operate more like Canada's Brookfield Asset Management and Australia's Macquarie Group Ltd, marks a new chapter for Keppel, which traces its roots to a small ship repair yard corporatised in 1968.
ATHENS (Reuters) -Italy's Enel is expected to finalise by May a deal for the sale of around a 50% stake in its Greek renewables unit to Australia-based Macquarie Group, two sources close to the matter said on Thursday. Enel said in November it was looking for a partner willing to buy part of Enel Green Power Hellas and invest in its development. Enel Green Power Hellas has 59 plants totalling 482 megawatts (MW) of operated capacity powered by renewable wind, solar and hydro energy, according to the company's website, and six solar plants of 84 MW under construction.
Infrastructure fund Macquarie Asset Management said on Wednesday it has agreed to buy a minority stake in Austrian car park company Best in Parking AG, as the sector recovers from lockdowns and aims for a boost from electric vehicles (EV). Macquarie, which already owns Telpark, a car park business in Spain, said it would support Best in Parking to double its EV charging access points to 1,000 by 2025. It did not disclose the amount of the deal, which is expected to be completed in the third quarter, but said Austria's Breiteneder family and its private foundation would retain a majority stake.
SYDNEY (Reuters) -Macquarie Group has hired Credit Suisse's top Australian dealmaker Dragi Ristevski, according to a memo from the bank. Ristevski has been Credit Suisse's head of investment banking and capital markets.
Indonesian nickel firm PT Merdeka Battery Materials plans to price its shares at 795 rupiah each, at the top of the range for its initial public offering (IPO) to raise 8.75 trillion rupiah ($586.46 million), two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said. As Indonesia steps up its efforts to become a major player in the electric vehicle industry and enjoys a flurry of IPOs, the pricing would make Merdeka Battery's IPO the second largest in Indonesia this year after its peer PT Trimegah Bangun Persada raised 10 trillion rupiah. Merdeka did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

DBS Group Chief Executive Piyush Gupta earned S$15.4 million ($11.4 million) in 2022, a 13% increase in what was a banner year for Southeast Asia's biggest lender. The big payday for Gupta, 63, comes after DBS logged record net profit of S$8.2 billion last year, up 20% on the year, as banks reaped the benefits of higher interest rates. "We expect that as our digital transformation becomes more pervasive, an ROE of 15% is sustainable if interest rates do not return to the unusually low levels seen during most of the past decade," Gupta said in the annual report.
Acceptance of the bid by CDP and Australia's Macquarie could be announced this month, the report said, adding that a final determination hasn't been made. The news comes after TIM said last month an offer for its network grid tabled by U.S fund KKR & Co Inc "does not wholly reflect the value of the asset". TIM said its objective was to facilitate an improved offer by the end of March.
Macquarie is yet to make an approach to M&G's board, according to the report. Macquarie is unlikely to keep M&G's insurance operations, the report added, and could either partner with a firm that could acquire that part the business or look to sell after completing the takeover. M&G did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment while Macquarie declined to comment on the report.

(Reuters) -Australia's Macquarie on Friday forecast stronger short-term income from its commodities trading business, after the unit tapped volatile oil and gas prices to boost profit in the first half, sending its shares higher. Financial conglomerates such as Macquarie have benefited from sharp volatility and supply chain disruptions in commodities markets that began in 2020 and increased this year with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The Sydney-based firm's Commodities and Global Markets (CGM) segment delivered a net profit contribution of about A$2 billion, 15% higher than last year, thanks to more clients hedging against volatile energy markets.
