Only two companies will bid to buy the Novacke Chemicke Zavody (NCHZ) chemical factory. They were the only two to pay the reserve price necessary to participate in the international tender, the Sme daily reported.
Companies M-Energo, owned by businessman Miroslav Remeta, and Spolchemie Slovakia, which belongs to Czech chemical factory Via Chem, each paid €1 million, the amount set by the manager of the international tender. They will now have to wait for an audit which will determine the final bids.
Meanwhile, parliament passed a draft amendment to the law on bankruptcy which will enable the European Commission to observe the tender. If Slovakia does not choose the winner of the tender by January 1, 2012, the decision will be taken in Brussels.
