SE bids deadline today

INVESTORS interested in a 66 percent stake in the Slovenské elektrárne (SE) power utility must submit their bids by 3pm today.

The cabinet's SE privatization advisor, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, will evaluate the offers and prepare a report that a selection committee will discuss on August 12, the Pravda daily wrote.

So far, three energy firms have expressed interest in buying SE as a whole, including its nuclear assets - the Russian RAO UES, Czech ČEZ, and Italian Enel.
