As reported, a tender to sell a 78.289% stake in power generating enterprise PJSC Centrenergo is to begin at 11:00 a.m. Kyiv time on December 13, 2018. The tender will take place, if at least two bidders register for the tender.
The conditions introduced under Cabinet resolution No. 756-r dated October 3, 2018, foresee the payment of dividends to the national budget in the amount of 30% of net profit for 2018 by Centrenergo, whereas the figure in 2017 was 75% and it was 50% in 2016.

This concerns any court decisions, which entered into force after the date of transfer of ownership of the shares or the corresponding accrual of taxes, fees or fines.
