MOSCOW, Feb 8 (Reuters) - Russia's former electricity monopoly, Unified Energy System (UES) EESR.MM, said on Friday that it will accept bids for the government's stake in power producer TGK-2 TGKB.MM until March 6.
The state-controlled utility, which is selling off all of its assets as part of a sweeping reform of the sector, said in a statement that it is selling 372.3 billion shares of TGK-2, which provides heat and power to six regions north of Moscow.
At the same time as the sale of the government’s stake, TGK-2 will sell new shares to the same strategic investor, which will thus get control of the firm. (Reporting by Simon Shuster; Editing by Paul Bolding)
