Jun 7 15
German Efromovich is bidding for TAP-Transportes Aereos Portugueses, SGPS, S.A.

"We have all kinds of synergies, the same alliance, the same fleet." The Portuguese government received improved offers for TAP from David Neeleman and German Efromovich consortiums and said it would take five days to analyze the bids.

Update On Privatization Of TAP
Jun 4 15
Portugal's center-right government said it is pushing ahead with privatization of TAP-Transportes Aereos Portugueses, SGPS, S.A. despite a court ruling the previous day suspending the process due to an administrative irregularity. Government spokesman Luis Marques Guedes said the cabinet had decided to maintain its privatization schedule for TAP, and said it was defying ruling by Portugal's highest administrative court with "a resolution establishing the necessity of protecting the public interest" by going ahead with the sale. The government resolution will be filed with the court, and "is justified by the urgency to continue the privatization process, which will allow the rapid recapitalization of the company," Guedes added. The move now leaves the two bidders for TAP are German Efromovich and David Neeleman until the end of June 5, 2015, to sweeten their initial offers and meet requirements outlined in the privatization plan.
Portuguese Court Suspends TAP Privatization
Jun 3 15
A Portuguese court ordered an interim suspension of TAP-Transportes Aereos Portugueses, SGPS, S.A.'s privatization two days before a key deadline in the process, a decision the government said it intends to appeal. The supreme administrative court ruled that the decree allowing for the privatisation was flawed, with the government not having planned a bidding process for the financial evaluation of the airline. Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho announced that the government intended to appeal the interim suspension, which comes two days before the deadline for final offers from the two candidates. The two final candidates are German Efromovich and David Neeleman. Coelho said he will present "a resolution showing the necessity of pursuing" privatization.
