Govt foreign investments commission will not have to approve increase in stake above 75% - FAS
MOSCOW. Nov 23 (Interfax) - A foreign investor will not need the permission of the Russian government commission for foreign investments to raise its stake above 75% of shares in a company.
These amendments will be made to the law governing foreign investments in strategic economic sectors, head of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) Igor Artemyev told Russian President Vladimir Putin while reporting on preparations of legislative amendments that facilitate foreign investment.
"Companies that have already racked up 75% [of shares] will get the relevant permission (if they buy more shares surpassing 75%) and will also not come to us at the commission. There are quite a few such companies," Artemyev is quoted as saying in a transcript of the meeting published on the FAS official website.
"In the last week, the government has approved amendments that, after they are reviewed at a government session, will go to the State Duma," Artemyev said.
