Transpower, the state-owned electricity grid company, has sold its d-cyphaTrade unit to Australian stock market operator ASX for A$55 million.
Transpower set up d-cyphaTrade in 2002. It promotes Australian exchange-traded electricity futures and then sells related training and information products. It had income of $10.4 million in 2012, down from $12.7 million a year earlier.
"d-cyphaTrade and its future development opportunities are not core business for Transpower," said chief executive Patrick Strange. "It is now time for the ASX to lead d-cyphaTrade through the next stage of its development."
ASX has taken over ownership of the business effective today.
