  • Restructuring and privatization of PPC

On May 15 the restructuring and privatization plan for the Public Power Corporation (PPC) was made public by the
Greek Government. Three main steps are envisaged in this direction: a. separation of the operator of the electricity
transmission system (ADMIE) from PPC; b. establishment of a new vertical electricity company (“smaller PPC”), to
which a substantial part of PPC’s production units as well as of its commercial activities will be transferred, aiming
to enhance competition in the Greek electricity market; and c. privatization of a part of PPC by offering 17% of the
company’s capital owned by the Greek state to a strategic investor. A specific timetable has been arranged for
each of the aforementioned steps: The unbundling of ADMIE shall be completed by the second quarter of 2014; the
new company shall be able to start operation in the first quarter of 2015; and the transfer of PPC’s shares shall
take place at the latest in the first quarter of 2016
