The non-binding offer values the assets at more than three quarters of the market capitalisation of Balfour Beatty, which has boosted the firm's shares.
The portfolio includes about 60 private finance initiative and PPP contracts.
The offer comes after the publication, in August 2014, of the Balfour Beatty's review of the Directors' Valuation of the PPP Portfolio. The review resulted in an increase in the total Directors' Valuation to £1,051 million as at June 2014. This represented a 46% increase to the total portfolio valuation as at June 2014.
The revaluation exercise was undertaken across the UK and North America portfolio of assets. The UK portfolio valuation increased to £801 million at June 2014, compared to £491 million at June 2014 under the previous valuation methodology, representing a 63% increase. The North America portfolio valuation increased to £250 million at June 2014, compared to £230 million under the previous valuation methodology, representing a 9% increase.
