MADRID, April 14 (Reuters) - Spain's Criteria, the parent company of lender Caixabank, is considering the sale of 4 percent of energy firm Gas Natural, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.
Criteria is Gas Natural's main shareholder, holding 34.4 percent of its share capital. It would use the proceeds of any sale to partly finance the purchase of a stake in oil major Repsol owned by its Caixabank unit, the source said.
