MOSCOW, January 23 (Itar-Tass) —— The management of the Russian oil giant LUKOIL will assign considerable funds for the purchase of the company’s shares, LUKOIL Vice-President Leonid Fedun told a teleconference on Monday.
“LUKOIL President Vagit Alekperov has already purchased the company’s shares, and I am going to take such a step,” Fedun told by phone.
Earlier, Itar-Tass reported that LUKOIL President Vagit Alekperov purchases 92,000 shares of the company last week. Alekperov paid 165.455 million roubles (about 5.3 million U.S. dollars) for the shares. Therefore, the cost of a share made up 1,798 roubles, while the current cost of the company’s share is estimated at 1,820 roubles per share.
