AzMeCo to be directly sold to SOCAR
“The process is delayed because the Cabinet of Ministers had to give an authorization on January 6 to Agrarkedit CJSC to sell the company to SOCAR without an auction. As you know, the Cabinet had earlier signed an order on sale and purchase of the company. The evaluation of the company completed in summer months. Later on, Agrarkredit got the company under the court’s decision. According to law, Agrarkredit had to be sold to SOCAR either through auction or a new authorization. As the document was signed recently, general procedures are underway. Out employees are holding meetings with Agrarkredit’s representatives”, he said.
