Auto giant AvtoVAZ, based in Togliatti, Samara region, is considering purchasing General Motors’ share in their JV GM-AvtoVAZ, Kommersant reports.
Experts estimate the deal price at $60-$120m.
AvtoVAZ reportedly gets priority purchase right of the GM share since GM is bankrupt.
GM-AvtoVAZ JV was set up in 2001. The two partners each own 41.6% shares in the JV, with the remaining 16.8% controlled by European bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Yesterday Marchmont wrote that AvtoVAZ is to receive an $815m non-interest loan from RF Government.
