Deposit Guarantee Fund will hold a repeated auction on September 24 to sell liabilities on credit agreements of Delta Bank on the Debt Exchange, Inc. (DebtX, Delaware) increasing the starting price up to UAH 4.98 billion (5.7 times).
Oil and fat complex in Illichivsk and infrastructure in the Chornomorsk seaport are the parts of poll of assets of Delta bank, the fund reported on its website.
“The bids will run under the Dutch scheme [on lowering price],” the Deposit Fund said.
The asset pool includes legal claims (15 items), property rights under credit agreements (seven items) and receivables.
On July 9, the executive directorate of the Deposit Guarantee Fund annulled the results of an open auction to sell liabilities on credit agreements of Delta Bank with the book value of UAH 4.85 billion ($182 million) on the Debt Exchange, Inc. (DebtX, Delaware) for UAH 182.5 million with the starting price of UAH 868.8 million, taking into account decision of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) made on July 8, which annulled the results of the auction.
The NBU on July 8 revoked its decision made on April 9, 2019 approving the sale of the oil and fat complex in Illichivsk and infrastructure in the Chornomorsk seaport used as collateral for credits issued by Delta Bank over possible abuse by the buyer – Sky financial company, the beneficiary of which is the co-owner of Kernel Andriy Verevsky.
The price of the same assets at a similar auction held March 6 of this year amounted to UAH 906.2 million with the same buyer, but the district administrative court locked the deal under the suit of a company, which did not participate in the bidding.
According to the NBU, the auction was held with the presence of circumstances and possible manipulations on the part of the buyer, which could affect the outcome of the auction and the sale of the property at a lower price. According to the NBU, for three months the assets could not depreciate several times.
