Amendment defining potential investors in DESFA sale tender tabled in Parliament

Government ministers on Monday tabled an amendment in Parliament that extends the categories of potential investors that can participate in an international tender conducted by the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) for the sale of shares owned by the state gas company DEPA SA in the natural gas transmission system operator DESFA SA.

The amendment stipulates that potential investors, in addition to certified transmission system operators and consortiums, can also be legal entities that are entirely controlled by a transmission system operator or have direct and exclusive control of such an operator or are exclusively controlled by a legal entity that has direct exclusive control of a transmission system operator.
