"Torex" is melted in "Amurmetal"

The only contender for the "single lot" of the property of OJSC Amurmetal was Khabarovsk OOO Toreks. This was reported by the press service of the Khabarovsk Krai Government. "Torex" should make a deposit in the amount of 20% of the initial value of the lot, according to the tender documentation at the site of the Interregional Electronic Trading System. Based on the current price of 2,46 billion rubles. This is just over 490 million rubles. 

Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport stressed that for the regional authorities “it is important to preserve the unique enterprise in Komsomolsk-on-Amur”, and the appearance of Torex means that “the long and difficult stage of finding an investor is over”. “Today, under the leadership of the regional government, the second stage begins - the implementation of a strategic program for the development of the metallurgical industry in the region,” the governor was quoted as saying in the regional government's press service. 

Bidding on the "single lot" of "Amurmetal" unsuccessfully went from 2015 year. Because of the lack of applicants, the initial value of the production assets of the only ferrous metallurgy in the Far East was gradually reduced from 9 billion rubles. To 2,4 billion rubles. Interest in the transaction was indicated by several players, including the Ural holding "Tagil Steel" and metal traders group of companies "North". 

Dmitry Volkov, deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk government, curator of Komsomolsk-on-Amur development, told EastRussia that the regional authorities are ready to provide comprehensive support measures to the investor in Amurmetal. “This is a big set. From the Ministry of Eastern Development, the inclusion of the Amurmetal zone within the boundaries of the priority development area is being worked out. Work is underway with Russian Railways on measures that would make the tariff for delivering raw materials to the enterprise, on the one hand, economically viable to the plant, and on the other, not undermining the railroad’s income from the cargo base. Work with power engineers is underway, ”the official listed. 

Despite the fact that the government of the region is not formally any party to the sale of Amurmetal's property, the plan for the development of the plant is in the hands of the authorities, Dmitry Volkov confirmed. "But each of these actions depends on the legally significant actions of the owner. The government of the region will work with the Ministry of Industry and Transport of the region, "he said. "We will do everything we can and even more to provide the most comfortable conditions for the restoration of production. The company "Torex" - in itself a non-poor company, it has the opportunity to attract on it both its own and borrowed resources, "said Dmitry Volkov. "There will be no miracles in this history, regular support mechanisms will work, including, possibly, along the lines of the JSC" Fund for the Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region, "the deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk government said.
