SE privatization contract made public

THE TRANSACTION documents on the privatization of a 66-percent stake in power producer Slovenské elektrárne (SE) have been available for public scrutiny at the Economy Ministry since April 18, the TASR news agency wrote.

The ministry decided to provide public access to the documents after getting approval from Italian firm Enel, which signed the purchase documents on February 17 this year.

Nevertheless, in accordance with the law on access to information, there still remains some secret information because of its confidential nature.

However, the ministry is not making any of the documents available on its website, as was previously announced.

After signing the contract in February, Enel paid 20 percent of the agreed purchase price of €840 million (Sk32.8 billion), or some €168 million (Sk4.31 billion). The remaining 80 percent (€672m) will be paid after the closure of the deal.

Before that happens, however, Enel must fulfil 16 conditions. According to Economy Minister Pavol Rusko this will happen by the middle of 2005.
