FNM starts to look for advisor on sale of heating plants

The Slovak Property Fund (FNM) will choose an advisor for the sale of six state-run heating plants via an electronic auction, the SITA newswire reported.

The Slovak Property Fund (FNM) will choose an advisor for the sale of six state-run heating plants via an electronic auction, the SITA newswire reported.

“Closed-door opening of envelopes as well as an electronic auction is intended to contribute to the transparency of this competition,” said the FNM’s Miroslav Homola, as quoted by SITA. “We also want to prevent negotiations between the applicants, so we will not reveal their identity.”

Choosing an advisor is the first step in the privatisation of the heating plants in Bratislava, Trnava, Žilina, Martin, Zvolen and Košice. The FNM predicts that the sale will be wrapped up in the third quarter of 2012.
