Sunday, September 18, 2005, 00:00
ASBK Kft, after coming second in the latest unsuccessful round of the Malév Rt's privatization tender, would like to submit a new proposal for the acquisition of the Hungarian Airline. The State Privatization and Holding (ÁPV) Rt is willing to take into consideration the company's bid, which is claimed to be connected to former business partners of Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány. There is currently no open tender. ÁPV claims that an ongoing open tender would be unreasonable. However, ÁPV is willing to examine any potential offer, and if found satisfactory, they would call for a new tender. (Nb 1) E.C.
