The Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH) said it has received bids from Deutsche Bank and Citi Group in a procedure for extending a 250 million euro ($323.7 million) loan to the state-run company.

In another procedure, for advisor on the placement of a 250 million euro bond issue, BEH has received six offers from Goldman Sachs, Citi Group, JP Morgan & FFBH, Deutsche Bank, Societe Generale and HSBC.
