Tashir Group has closed a deal to buy a 90% stake in International Energy Corporation, which operates the Sevan-Hrazdan Cascade, from RusHydro.

As envisaged under the share sale agreement signed in December 2019, Tashir fully canceled RusHydro’s guarantees on IEC liabilities to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Asian Development Bank, after which the shares were transferred to the buyer.

The deal has been sanctioned by Armenia’s Public Services Regulatory Commission. The purchase of IEC has strengthened Tashir’s position in Armenia’s power generation market.

As has been reported earlier, the agreement sets the selling price of 527,085 ordinary registered uncertified IEC shares at 172.96 million rubles.
