Bulgaria Extends Deadline for Buying Tender Papers for Arms Maker VMZ Sopot

Bulgaria's privatisation agency said it extended until August 24 the deadline for buying tender documents for a 100% stake in arms manufacturer VMZ Sopot.

The deadline was extended in response to inquiries by potential investors, the agency said in a statement on Thursday.

The deadline for submitting classified information clearance documents is also extended, until August 31.

Bulgaria launched a privatisation procedure for the sale of 118,000,000 state-owned shares in VMZ Sopot in early July. One of the eligibility requirements for prospective bidders is combined sales revenue of at least 120 million levs ($75.7 million/61.4 million euro) for the past three years. Tie-ups are barred from the sale procedure.
