Belgrade – Stock fund of Serbia said yesterday that while selling the tourist agency “Puntik” they behaved according to the regulations of dealing of Belgrade market and that they were led by the principles of maximization of income in the budget of Serbia, says agency BETA.
In the announcement of the director of the Fund Aeksandar Gracanac it is said that with that the budget of Serbia will get 38,4 millions of euros which is 3,2 millions of euros more than it would be if the offer of Russian bidder Dmitri Lucenko was accepted for the taking over of “Puntik”.
With that trade the offer of Lucenko failed, who gave the offer for taking over of at least 70% of the stocks of “Puntik”. Gracanac noted that the “insinuations that the state has without any justification lowered the price of the stocks are unprofessional and incompetent”.
In the announcement, on the occasion of the allegations that the fund has disabled Lucenko to buy the stocks on the market, it is added that according to the Law on taking over of stock associations, the bidder while he has the offer for taking over can not gain the stocks in any other way.
According to the unofficial information of “Vijesti” the buyer of the stocks of “Puntik” which has in its property the island Sveti Marko near Tivat, is Cyprus company Akciona Investment.
Few days ago it withdrew the offer for Puntik, when Lucenko applied, but it appeared on the stock market and practically “swept” the stocks which was a surprise for everyone.
A Belgrade medium earlier published that behind Akciona stands a Russian company Metropol. In Serbia it is speculated that some domestic businessman are involved in the purchase of “Puntik”.
