ZSSK examines possible privatisation

THE NATIONAL railway company ZSSK is currently examining possible schemes for the sale of part of its shares to investors. According to the first alternative, a part of the shares of ZSSK would be sold. In a second variant, freight and passenger transport businesses would be split. In this case, a respective joint stock company would operate each business and some shares of the freight transport business would be offered for sale. The third variant would also separate passenger and freight transport and the government would then select what share of each company it wants to sell, and when. By law, the state may sell up to 49 percent of shares in any of its businesses.
