Process To Privatize Heavy Electric Complex And Allied Bank Starts

The Privatization Commission Board (PCB) on December 9, 2014 decided to start afresh the process to privatize Heavy Electrical Complex (Pvt.) Ltd. (HEC) and also fixed a minimum selling price at INR 105 per share to offload 11.3% of government’s stakes in Allied Bank Limited (KASE:ABL). After the Board meeting, the cabinet committee on privatization also endorsed the floor price of INR 105 per share, giving 7.6% discount on the last trading session’s price. Headed by its Chairman, Mohammad Zubair, the Board decided to invite fresh bids for the strategic sale of HEC after the two bidders did not deposit the earnest money. “The availability of finances is more important than the minimum paid up capital requirement,” said Zubair. He said the conditions have been made more conducive for potential bidders, which will help in getting more response. Five companies pre-qualified for the HEC but three were screened out due to the conditions of relevant background and the minimum paid-up capital, said Zubair. These included ABB Ltd. (SWX:ABBN), Alstom Grid SAS (Areva T&D – SAS), Pak Elektron Ltd. (KASE:PAEL), Siemens (Pakistan) Engineering Co. Ltd. (KASE:SIEM) and Iljin Holdings Co.,Ltd (KOSE:A015860). The PCB also approved the floor price at INR 105 per share to off-load the remaining 11.23% government shares in the Allied Bank Limited (ABL).
