Podgorica/Zagreb – All the companies are interested in becoming a strategic partner of Cetinje Montenegrobonus, and especially Lukoil, and Mol are interested in Cetinje Company just because of Bar Harbor, as the future export harbor of Oil industry of Serbia.
That is the response of Croatia “Poslovni list” (Business papers) on the question how have Montenegrins managed to get all big regional players interested in their company.
The offers for the open competition which is closing on the 21st of May, beside Hungarian Mol, Russian Lukoil, INA and NIS they have announced Slovenian Petrol, Greek Hellenik, Canadian Bankers Petroleum, companies from Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Great Britain, Germany, and groups of Greek bankers and industrials.
Montenegrin Minister for economic development Branimir Gvozdenovic also said that many companies, from Italy, Serbia, Germany, and Hungary are interested in Bar Harbor.
Asked to comment the recent events in Bar Harbor (the losses because of the reverse entry of property and the drop of the stocks on the market) Minister Gvozdenovic said that the Harbor is a good business subject which is not using its capacities fully.
– Positive trends happen in Harbor and it is important for us to use its potentials – explained the minister for economic development.
For Government the offer of the company Montenegrobonus to form with some partner a “Joint venture” enterprise which will generate the investments of more than 30 millions of euros is interesting.
– Big firms are interested for that deal which is not connected to some other business subject, such as Bar Harbor. Those companies in their projections have recognized wider interests, because in Montenegro the roads are being revitalized, as well as the railroad infrastructure and the most competitive ambience for the development of business in the surrounding is being created – said Gvozdenovic, adding that the creation of the positive ambience has reflected itself on stock market results in the previous period. The deputy of the PZP Emin Durakovic noted that “ the relation of official Government’s policy toward Bar Harbor is irresponsible and unprofessional, and that that is one of the main reasons why these days small stockholders are having hard times because of the huge downfall of stocks”.
– We think that in the goal of protection of stockholders in state enterprises an entirely new more logic approach should be promoted according to which the state and only the state can transfer (move) its capital, property which is in the territory of Morsko dobro, from one portfolio to another, and in that way the state would perform the reverse entry of the property at the expense of its own package in that firm.
Also, PZP is pledging that during the re-evaluation and possible decrease of the capital funds of some business association the proportional number of stocks should not be nullified, but that instead the proportional nominal value of the stocks should be decreased as the more justified marketing principle – it is said in Durakovic’s announcement.
