Argentine Governor Denies Press Reports on YPF

(Corrects spelling of governor’s name in first paragraph.)

The governor of Argentina’s Jujuy province, Eduardo Fellner, denied a media report that Argentina seeks a stake in YPF SA (YPFD), the nation’s largest oil company, and said no decision has been made on the matter.

Fellner spoke to reporters in Buenos Aires. Argentine newspaper Clarin earlier reported the nation will take as much as 50.01 percent stake in YPF.
