Buyer of 21.24% shares in VSZ steel maker remains anonymous.

The state owned Transpetrol pipeline operator sold the shares last year December 21, one day before the holiday closure of stock exchange. The deal is said to be suspicious due to the price. While Transpetrol bought the shares for Sk206 a share it sold the package for Sk160 a share.

Head of Stock Exchange Maria Hurajova said the deal was not completed yet; the shares' transfer is due January 9. She said that the stock exchange was investigating the circumstances of the sale.
