German Company Allowed to Buy Majority of Czech Gas

LCG, May 3, 2002-The Czech Republic's anti-monopoly office, UHOS, has allowed German company RWE Gas to purchase the majority stake of the Czech gas network.

Having received permission, RWE Gas may buy 8 regional distribution bodies as well as gas importer and distributor Transgas for 4.1 billion Euros, or $3.7 billion. Transgas controls pipelines transporting 20 percent of western German natural gas supply and 34 percent of all Russian gas exports.

The potential contract would be the largest privatization move yet for the Czech government. Payments for government assets sold due to privatization are to be kept in the Czech National Bank and out of the foreign exchange market so as not to affect the Czech currency (USD1 = CSK33.9).
