FNM calls new tender for SPaP shipping firm

The FNM state privatisation agency has called a tender for an advisor on the sale of the state's 87% stake in shipping firm SPaP. A previous tender for the firm was cancelled last month amid a scandal involving the purchase price of the firm.

The firm Dunajservis was adjudged the winner of the tender after offering 311 million crowns ($6.1 million) for the stake. However, it was revealed that other firms bidding had offered much more money.
