Electric Company Demerges

Bashkirenergo said Tuesday that it would buy out holders of its ordinary and preference stock who will not support a planned business demerger at 33.42 rubles ($1.15) and 25.39 rubles per share, respectively.

The company's board agreed Monday to demerge its electricity grid and power generation assets and hand control of the separate divisions to two main shareholders, state power group Inter RAO and Sistema.

The buyout price implies a significant discount to market — the ordinary stock last closed at 40 rubles, while the preference stock last traded at 30.5 rubles per share.


… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
