10 want SE utility

Ten potential investors have expressed preliminary interest in buying a minority stake in electricity utility Slovenské Elektrárne (SE), eight of whom are European energy firms and two financial investors, according to the Economy Ministry.

Interested parties have until September 26 to submit bids, even though it is not yet known whether a 46 or 49 per cent stake will be sold, or exactly what properties will be included. The final decision on the sale will be taken by Slovakia’s next government, which will emerge from September 20-21 elections.
