FGIU Chairman Valentyna Semenyuk intends to launch negotiations with London Stock Exchange over the Ukrainian state enterprises’ stock floatation.

“I have already selected four such enterprises which will do ‘provide a benefit’ to the Budget. These are small share holdings less than 25%. This is exactly what will profit not only hryvnya but currency as well,” said Semenyuk.

Though, FGIU Chairman did not specify the enterprises she selected. Most likely it may be Ukrtelecom, 1.74% Kryvorizhstal, the Energy and Fuel Complex securities. “If it comes true I will give Mrs. Semenyuk my due. But one should comprehend that it is not so easy to get Ukrainian enterprises’ stocks to the international stock exchange. It is not a quick process. It will take a year at best,” commented Dmytro Tarabakin, the Director of Dragon Capital Investment Company.

It should be pointed out that FGIU press office refused to comment on Semenyuk’s statement. The experts, in turns, reckon that the words would not be supported by any real activities.

According to Director of the International Privatisation Institute Oleksandr Ryabchenko, the legislative requisitions for privatisation worked out during the economic recession may become an obstacle in the way to the international stock exchanges. “The entire technology of Ukrainian privatisation is aimed at the attraction of strategic investors which are due to restore the enterprises from ruins, but the philosophy of the foreign stock exchange is far from this technology,” stressed Ryabchenko.
