Odessa port was estimated too low – Medvedchuk

Одесский припортовой оценили слишком низко - Медведчук

The price of IPF starts with half a billion dollars

Today to determine the real price of the Ukrainian state-owned enterprises is difficult, says the former head of the state property Fund.

Power too low assessed Odessa port plant that will soon be privatized. This writes Viktor Medvedchuk on the website of “the Ukrainian choice”.

In his opinion, in a situation with IPF “public, the effective” privatisation speech does not go.

“The giant of the chemical industry will be auctioned, with the starting price – 13,175 billion UAH (about $520 million). Is that an adequate price for “a strategic asset on the global market of mineral fertilizers”, as called by the HMO, the head of the state property Fund Igor Bilous? Obviously not,” – said the leader of “Ukrainian choice”.

As stated by the former head of the state property Fund Oleksandr Bondar, today to determine the real price of the Ukrainian state-owned enterprises difficult. “But if you take the price of all our property today, we have the lowest rates in the history of privatization. These prices have not yet been”, – says Cooper. Recall that in 2015 the former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk claimed that the IPF may not be sold for less than $1 billion.

Medvedchuk noted that the authorities are finally “ripe” for privatization at a time when Ukrainian companies have fallen in price to a minimum and there is no demand.

According to the forecast policy, the further sale of state property will take place in any economic “weather” and the company will be sold for half price.

It should be noted that according to the head of the SFS Igor Bilous, in the purchase of HMO interest in five foreign companies.
