The demand complicates the process of offloading EBS from state ownership, since the two final bidders were due to submit binding offers by December 22.

One bidder, IL&P, was already facing serious challenges to raise the capital for the EBS deal and had been depending on the Government for EBS's own €550m capital demand.
