ANOTHER TENDER ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE IS OVER
The Privatisation Agency (PA) sold the entire state-owned stakes in 55 companies offered on the eighth centralized public tender on the stock exchange. Ninety four companies, most of which familiar to the investors, were offered on the tender and sold without a minimum tender price. The negotiated payments amount to 22,218 non-cash means of payment and BGN741,543. It is to be noted that few compensatory instruments and investment vouchers were used in that privatisation. The reason is that only 23 of the offered companies were traded for them.The centralized public tender was held between 6 and 20 October. Traditionally, the greatest interest was registered during the first days following the supply of state-owned shares. On the very first day, state-owned stakes of 35 companies were sold.
