Two Slovak and four foreign companies are reportedly interested in purchasing the company. One of the Slovak applicants is M-Energo, owned by Miroslav Remeta, who participated in a first bidding round which was stopped by the National Property Fund (FNM) for alleged non-transparency.

The official list of bidders will be published as soon as companies send the bankruptcy administrator a draft of the contract and an advance payment of €1 million.
