THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - Dutch energy company Eneco says it has agreed to a proposed 4.1 billion-euro ($4.5 billion) takeover by Japanese corporations Mitsubishi and Chubu.

Eneco said in a statement Monday that Mitsubishi will fund 80% of the deal and Chubu the remaining 20%.

The company, which is currently owned by a group of 44 Dutch municipalities, says Mitsubishi and Chubu support strengthening Eneco’s sustainable energy strategy and will allow it to further expand internationally.
