At least 2.7%, Possibly 5% of National Telco Up for Sale

Ljubljana, 27 December (STA) - Three state-owned investors and a private investment fund published on Monday a call for bids for a package of 177,473 shares or a 2.7% stake in state-owned telco Telekom Slovenije.

Prvi pokojninski sklad, a pension fund managed by the state-run Pension Fund Management (KAD), the NLB bank, insurer Zavarovalnica Triglav, and the PSP Modra linija investment fund are only ready to sell the entire package.

KAD will be accepting bids until 31 January.

KAD head Borut Jamnik told the STA that Prvi pokojninski sklad was selling the shares above all as a result of legal provision regulating the fund, but did not provide any details.
