MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s government will make a decision before the yearend about privatisation of state companies for the price not lower than their IPO, Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told reporters on Friday.
Reporters asked him about the state of Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin’s suggestion not to privatise state companies below their IPO price.
“The governmental decision is being processed,” Shuvalov said, but did not mention what companies may be privatised. However, he added, that the decision would be made before the yearend.
On Thursday, press secretary of the prime minister Dmitry Peskov said that government had not yet finalised a decision about privatisation of companies at earlier IPO price.
“There are different views as to which companies should be included on this list,” he said.
Peskov said that all necessary meetings with the governmental leaders had taken place already.
“A decision may be considered finalised only after it is signed by the prime minister.”
