Strabag Option Not All Cash

Strabag chief Hans Peter Haselsteiner said Friday that he expected Oleg Deripaska to only partly pay for a 25 percent stake in the Austrian builder in cash, the Oberösterreichische Nachrichten newspaper reported.

“The financing will probably be a mixture,” Haselsteiner said in an interview to the paper. The company will examine closely “when and how we will participate” in Deripaska’s Russian building companies, he said.

The examination will take a “fairly long time” and won’t be completed by Nov. 5 when Deripaska’s option for the stake expires, he said, adding that Deripaska’s return to Strabag has been “decided.”


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
