Privatisation of Slovakia’s heating plants to be delayed

Slovakia’s government will sell the country's six largest heating companies later than originally planned, the SITA newswire wrote on June 21.

The chairwoman of Slovakia’s National Property Fund, Anna Bubeniková said at a meeting with journalists on June 21 that the privatisation process will be postponed for about three months.

The scheduled date of selling off the heating plants had been delayed in April after the cabinet changed its February decision to sell a 100-percent stake in the six largest plants by promising to transfer 5 percent of the shares to the six municipalities and sell only a 95-percent stake to strategic investors.
