Zakhidenergo Goes West
The Ukrainian electricity generating company Zakhidenergo [ZAEN UZ] won access to a 100 MW power export capacity for the year 2010 through the very first auction to be held for access to electricity exports from Ukraine. As a result, now the Company will be able to sell part of its power directly to foreign clients. The auction itself signifies the liberalization of Ukrainian electricity exports and constitutes a driver for the entire power generating sector.

Oblenergos – privatization list
Finding itself in a situation characterized by a fiscal deficit and a deteriorating economic situation, both in Ukraine and worldwide, the Ukrainian Government decided to resume the privatization of large state-owned property in 2009, including the privatization of power distributing companies (oblenergos). On March 18 and April 1, 2009, Ukraine’s State Property Fund announced the auction for privatizing the blocking package of six electricity distribution companies. The auctions are scheduled on April-May 2009.

Regional electricity distribution — different identities
The energy sector in Ukraine is one of the country’s great assets. A country with a population of 47 mln and heavy industries generates significant demand for electricity. Currently there are 27 major electricity distribution companies (oblenergos) in Ukraine, 20 of which are public. This enables equity investors to play the Ukrainian electricity distribution sector on the stock market and gain benefits from the ongoing changes in the sector. The Ukrainian electricity distribution sector is one of the hottest on the stock market. After growing 208% YoY, on average, in 2007, the cumulative MCap of electricity distribution companies fell 90% YoY in 2008. Considerably low prices suggest that equities can be acquired for a penny; however, high spreads and low liquidity suggest that the investments should be held for a long time.

Five Questions on Ukrainian Gencos
Ukrainian thermal generation companies are industrial giants traded on PFTS. Built in the late 1960s, they have supplied electricity not only in Ukraine but to bordering countries as well. Reforms of the 1990s presented new challenges while, at the same time, opening up new prospects: the announced electricity sector reform, privatization of electricity companies, and possible export liberalization raise questions that need to be answered.

Flash Note: Privatization benefits for portfolio investors
The diarchy in the State Property Fund (SPF), created by the confrontation between the president and the prime minister, created grounds to question the legitimacy of the privatization that made Energy Standard group, one of the rival shareholders in 5 out of 6 oblenergos, refuse to participate until the government clears all political and judicial issues tied to privatization.
