The state will not yet enter game over Slovenske Elektrarne
According to the ministry, the state will not agree with the sale of the shares before completing two nuclear blocks in Mochovce. The ministry has again not ruled out that the state will express interest in these shares in some stage of the sale.
Four contenders are likely to meet in the first round of the acquisition of a majority stake in the power utility Slovenske Elektrarne. The state’s appetite was earlier mentioned, however, the first round will be without its presence. The economy ministry, an administrator of a minority stake in Slovenske Elektrarne, gave a vague answer to whether the state will submit a binding bid to the Italians until May 9. According to the ministry, the state will not agree with the sale of the shares before completing two nuclear blocks in Mochovce. The ministry has again not ruled out that the state will express interest in these shares in some stage of the sale. The fact that the state has not yet carried out any detailed audit in the company indicates that the state has adopted waiting tactics in this process. This stake would be interesting for a minority shareholder, who is complaining about difficult access to different data, also if eventually it was not interested in these shares.
