The Austria-based European American Investment Bank AG (Euram) is to take over a majority in the Slovenske Lodenice Komarno Bratislava (SLKB) shipyard from the state-run FNM privatisation agency in the next few days, news wire TASR reported.

The FNM had called a special general assembly of SLKB's shareholders for December 15 to approve increasing the company's fixed assets through the issue of 10,900 new equity shares at Sk10,000 (€244) a piece.

By depositing Sk109 million (€2.66 million), Euram AG will increase its stake in SLKB from the current 49 percent to 70 percent.
