Vladivostok International Airport sold to Basic Element consortium for 6 billion rubles

Stakes in Vladivostok International Airport OJSC and Vladivostok Terminal CJSC were sold to the Cantua Investment Limited consortium, consisting of Oleg Deripaska's Basic Element, the Russian Direct Investment Fund and the Changi airport holding. The contract price is about 6 billion rubles, Vedomosti writes, citing sources close to the deal.

According to the representative of Sheremetyevo, the consortium, in fact, put forward a better price. The decision should be taken this week by the Federal Property Management Agency. Representatives of "Basel" and RFPI declined to comment.

The sale of the shares of Vladivostok International Airport OJSC and Vladivostok Terminal CJSC by Sheremetyevo International Airport for months has acquired contradictory information.

Strangely, the deadlines for tenders and decision-making were extended. Thus, the general director of Sheremetyevo airport Mikhail Vasilenko in a press release from 29 December 2014 reported that «The envelopes have already been opened, the proposals of the participants are under analysis. Further discussion with the board of directors and the owner is required. There is a decision to make a decision 20 days ».

However, in early February in the press service of Sheremetyevo, EastRussia's questions were answered by the fact that proposals are currently being analyzed and negotiations with the participants are underway. From the additional comments in the press service of the company refused.

The number of bidders remained unclear. Initially, TASS reported with reference to one of the participants of the opening of envelopes that three companies are applying for the acquisition of shares in the airport assets of Vladivostok from Sheremetyevo International Airport, and the fourth applicant, the "Basic Element" group of Oleg Deripaska, withdrew the application at the last moment.

However, as early as the end of January, Vedomosti, citing three sources close to the auction and the government, wrote that the most likely contender for the Vladivostok airport from Sheremetyevo was the Basic Element consortium, the RFPI and the Singapore Changi. Then, according to their information, the consortium proposed about 8 billion rubles.
