Samruk-Kazyna Seeks To Raise Finance

Samruk-Kazyna National Welfare Fund JSC is planning to raise more than $6 billion from privatizations over the next five years, using the proceeds to help its companies repay debt, the fund's managing director told Reuters. The sale will start with small companies. “The balance sheet value of those assets (earmarked for privatisation) is between $6.0-7.3 billion at the current exchange rate," Beisengaliyev said. “Of course, we plan to raise more than the balance sheet value over the next five years." Stakes in smaller companies such as provincial air terminals or oil equipment plants will go first, by the end of 2017, mostly through electronic auctions. Asked what the proceeds would be used for, Beisengaliyev said, “Clearly, to reduce the debt burden".

Air Astana Mulls Listing

Air Astana JSC is planning to launch an IPO (Initial Public Offering). President, Peter Foster said that the company, held by Samruk-Kazyna National Welfare Fund JSC and BAE Systems plc (LSE:BA.), is likely to launch an IPO in 2017-2018. He said, “We are very pleased with the recent announcement of the government that Air Astana is to be the subject of initial public offering (IPO), probably within 18 to 24 months' time. We think that this would extremely positive for the development of Kazakhstan's financial market and, of course, the capital base of the airline as we grew and expand into the next phase.”
