Islamabad Electric Supply Company Limited Key Developments

Government To Sell Stake In Kot Addu Power

Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister, Pakistan has put the planned strategic sale of power distribution and generation companies to a halt and now shares of these companies will be floated on the stock exchange. The Privatization Division proposed that the process should be initiated for the listing of shares of qualified power distribution companies through an IPO on the stock exchange where it was found applicable and feasible. Senate panel defers voting on Heavy Electrical Complex (Pvt.) Ltd sell-off report. Consequently, the cabinet body directed the Privatisation Division to start the process of floating shares of the Faisalabad Electric Supply Company and Islamabad Electric Supply Company in the first phase in order to ensure larger participation of the general public. It also decided that the government would keep control and management of the power companies. Moreover, all existing boards of the companies would continue to function.
