He added that the owners of Transelektro Management Kft, which holds a 49% stake in GTV, have set up a company with registered capital of Ft 1 billion under the name Transelektro Fővállalkozó Kft to assist the units complete their orders.
Construction company Vegyépszer Rt, which Tímár also heads, owns 48% of Transelektro Management. If GTV's creditors call back the company's Ft 10 billion in loans and Ft 6 billion in guarantees, it will be forced into liquidation, Tímár said.
