Duke Energy exec says talks with dissident investor continue, seeking ‘common ground’

Duke Energy Corp. CFO Steve Young left the door open today to adding directors chosen by dissident shareholder Elliott Management Corp., while not commenting directly on published reports of a deal with the group. 

Young confirms that discussions continue with the activist investor group that initially called for breaking up the power company into three publicly traded companies — one covering the Carolinas utilities, one for Duke Energy Florida and one for Duke’s Midwest operations.
