CONSORTIUMS whose members include Slovak financial companies Slavia Capital and Penta, have been shortlisted in the privatization of railway cargo transport company Zeleznična Spoločnosť Cargo Slovakia (ZSSK Cargo), spokespersons for both companies confirmed for the SITA news agency.

Austrian railway company Österreichische Bundesbahn (ÖBB), which made a preliminary bid through its subsidiary Rail Cargo Austria, also officially confirmed it has been selected to continue in the tender.

"Slavia Capital Group presented a preliminary bid for a 100-percent stake in ZSSK Cargo in a consortium with a renowned international company," Slavia capital spokesman Peter Benčúrik told SITA.

He declined to comment on rumours that Slavia is bidding in a consortium with Hungarian railway company MAV.
