Billionaire Lisin’s UCL May Bid for 50% of TransContainer

Three of Russia’s biggest transportation groups, including billionaire Vladimir Lisin’s UCL Holding company, may bid for 50 percent of London-listed rail-cargo operator OAO Transcontainer.

UCL may bid, spokesman Dmitry Baukov said today by phone. Businessman Ziyavudin Magomedov’s Summa group is also interested, Vice President Konstantin Panin said, as is Sergey Generalov’s Fesco Transportation Group, which bought a 12 percent stake during the cargo carrier’s initial public offering last year, Vice President Stanislav Vartanyan said.
