“ Rosgosstrakh “ have sold blindlyOn Saturday the Russian fund of federal property (Russian Federal Property Fund) has summed up sale of a penultimate share holding “ Rosgosstrakh “. As well as assumed, 39 % of actions of the insurer were redeemed by the investment company “ the Three Dialogue “. It keeps till now a name of the client a secret, promising to declare it tomorrow - in day of last auction. However participants of the market already now consider that the American insurance group AIG became the buyer.
As the head has declared a press - services of the Russian Federal Property Fund Oleg Shevchenko, 39 % of actions of the oldest Russian insurer exposed on sale have been sold for 1 mlrd 333 thousand 333 roubles at the starting price in 1 mlrd roubles. Demands of three investment companies participated in auction - “ Three Dialogue “ “ Dilingmaster “ and “ the Prospectus “.
For “ Three Dialogue “ it not the first participation in the auctions on “ to Rosgosstrakh “. Let`s remind, in September the company has redeemed the first share holding of the insurer - 9 % for 291 million roubles. Representatives “ Three “ did not hide that are going to participate and in the second auction on which it was supposed to expose 16 % of shares of company. However in October the Ministry of Property has changed the privatisation plan “ Rosgosstrakh “. Instead of the initial scheme - “ 9 %; 16 % plus one action; 25 % a minus two actions “ the state has decided to sell the company differently - “ 9 %; 39 %; 1 % “ (wrote about it).
This change has revolted “ the Three Dialogue “ - under the old scheme at the second auction and for smaller money the company would redeem for the client blocking package “ Rosgosstrakh “. On conditions of last plan of privatisation “ the Three “ has been obliged to participate in the second auctions and to overpay for a package in 39 % of the insurer, otherwise its first acquisition of 9 % lost any meaning.
The participation in the second auctions in most “ to the Three “ yesterday have commented so. “ We have estimated all possible outcomes under the transaction and have made decision to buy the second prize “ - the chief executive of the company Alexander Chernov has declared. Mister Chernov has refused to answer a question who is their client, having declared only that for the future owner “ Rosgosstrakh “ insurance business is profile.
at the moment in the market there are some versions about the one who exactly became the co-owner “ Rossgostraha “. As potential buyers are called: the American insurance group AIG, German insurance group Allianz AG, “ Slavneft “ and “ Rusal “. However it is necessary to notice that at “ Slavneft “ already there is own insurer - the company “ Siberia “ “ Rusal “ recently became one of co-owners “ Ingosstraha “. Allianz AG 45,27 % of actions of other insurer - ROSNO own. Besides in ROSNO have denied the version of participation Allianz AG in auction on purchase “ Rosgosstrakh “. “ They are obliged to warn us about such intentions “ - the representative of the company has declared.
thus, the most probable buyer “ Rosgosstrakh “ remains AIG. As before crisis AIG tried to develop business in Russia, having chosen as the partner gone bankrupt bank “ SBS - Agro “ and even asked the price of insurance company ROSNO, which at it “ has withdrawn “ Allianz AG. However now in AIG refuse any comments of a situation.
about the one who is the new owner “ Rosgosstrakh “ in “ to the Three Dialogue “ promised to declare on Tuesday. This day last auction on sale the remained 1 % of shares of company will take place.
