The Fund explained the success with the tenders selling government shares in energy, machine building and other industrial enterprises.
Earlier the Fund posted a list of enterprises, which might be privatized in 2012. The list included Turboatom, the Odessa port plant and several regional energy companies. There will be privatization tenders for 48 gas distribution grids in May-June. From 1% to 26% of their authorized capital would be offered to private investors.
