Commission picks highest bidder for SE tender

THE PRIVITISATION commission recommended that the government sell its 66-percent stake in Slovenské Elektrárn to Italian energy company Enel. Of all the investors, Enel offered the highest price – €840 million.

PricewaterhouseCoopers consultant Peter Mitka confirmed that the commission based its decision on price, the TASR newswire has said. Mitka is the government's advisor on Slovenské Elektrárne’s privatisation.

If negotiations with Enel fail, the commission recommended that ÈEZ from the Czech Republic be next in line, followed by Russia’s RAO UES.

It is up to Economy Minister Pavol Rusko to proceed with the commission’s recommendations. Rusko will finalise the decision at the government level.
