Sergey Tigipko predicts mortgage renewal this spring

Tihipko Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Human Services. Policy of Ukraine at the press conference expressed his opinion on the resumption of the mortgage in the spring of 2011.

“This year will be a transition and difficult. First of all, for business because it is now gradually being re-building industry and mortgage lending resumes. In some areas the banks have given loans. For example, the purchase of automobiles. I think the mortgage will go after these industries , “- said Tihipko.

“Recovery of the mortgage will reduce in real estate prices, which can be expected in 2012” – says Tigipko.

“If we have the ability to stimulate the mortgage, and the first to help the banking sector, this demand to recover and return to the indicators that were in demand in 2007, after which we will soon see the decline in housing prices,” – said Tigipko.

The politician is convinced that the end of 2011, the Government will create all necessary conditions for the construction, which should in turn lead to increased demand in the market.

“Now, another problem pops up, you have to decide is not the builders – it’s a matter of demand” – it is necessary to restore long-term mortgage. This can contribute by introducing a policy of insurance of pension savings “- said Tigipko.

“Some countries, such as Kazakhstan, have been able to concentrate resources into a single mechanism, when the money from the second level part of the pension system were to support the mortgage, which were built with a lot of cheap social housing,” – said Tihipko.

Kolomoisky not get the “MAU”

Existing shareholders UIA intend to exercise their right to buy state-owned shares CHAO, leaving, therefore, likely to participate in the privatization structures Igor Kolomoisky, according to Economic News.

On Friday, three companies are co-owners of PJSC “Ukraine International Airlines’ (UIA), issued a message of intent to acquire state-owned shares of the airline in the amount of 61.58%. According to the information bulletin “Securities of Ukraine”, the company Capital Investment Project (now owned by 6% CHAO) will acquire 9.58% stake, UIA Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH (which owns 22.52% stake) wants to buy 36.09% stake in the carrier, and UIA Holding GmbH (owned 9.9% stake) intends to buy 15.9% shares of UIA.

This message is the first official confirmation of what has previously only speculate: the privatization of UIA is implemented the script does not open, and domestic sales of state shares. Predictions of such a course of events has been based, for example, that minority shareholders have blocked earlier decision SPF amending the charter of the company, which would eliminate the rule of law a priority of existing shareholders to participate in privatization.

On the other hand, had reason to expect a decision on the public sale of the package, as it promised to bòlshie revenues for the state budget. Recall that in December last year, the desire to participate in the privatization of the said two companies that are not current shareholders of the UIA – Windrose and “Dniproavia” (the latter officially included in the alliance, “Ukrainian Aviation Group”, which unites aviaaktivy Igor Kolomoisky, the first, according to market participants , affiliated with it).

Windrose willing to pay 61.58% MAU 492.9 mln. “Dniproavia” – 516.841 mln. While in closed sales force airlines to shareholders will be invited to buy shares at a price which an independent valuer will assess the package – the SPF has already chosen for this purpose “Ukrainian expert group.” According to sources, “Interfax-Ukraine”, the appraiser determined the value of the package at 270 mln. And the draft contract of sale at that price has already been sent for approval to Mininfrastruktury.

So, now you can actually talk about the new owner of the UIA – in all likelihood, they will become ex-CEO and a former co-owner of “Aerosvit” Aron Mayberg. Back in early 2010 at the UIA had at least four shareholder – but the state company Capital Investment Project, owned by Mr. Mayberg called (bought back those shares at 6% of UIA, which previously got rid of the Aer Cap), as well as Austrian Austrian Airlines ( through UIA Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH) and the EBRD. During the year the EBRD and Austrian Airlines had withdrawn from the shareholders and the ownership structure has acquired a valid species.

Experts believe the current situation surrounding the privatization of UIA quite controversial. On the one hand – a closed sale airline clearly meets the letter of the law, on the other – the cost of state-owned obviously undervalued. Independent analysts estimated it at about $ 250 million, deputy head of the special commission on privatization VR Oleksandr Bondar said that the chosen scenario is certainly sell “privatization in one hand” and not in the interests of the state.
“The state had the legal leverage poprepyatstvovat this by lifting the rate of privatization in a closed re-charter UIA, in accordance with new legislation. It made sense back when the company had a few shareholders, but now there is only one private shareholder, and intrigue as to who will get it, no, “- says Mr. Cooper.

In the State Property Fund explained that the principle of privatization on the principle of maximum revenue from the sale is not always correct. “You have to understand that the smaller price to pay for the new shareholder of state-owned stake, the more free money in his will for the company. Therefore correct to privatize a specific investobyazatelstv – then the company will have an opportunity for further growth, and the state will receive their proceeds in the form of income tax, “- explained one of the representatives of the government.

Apparently, in general liking of power are more likely to side of existing shareholders UIA, so privatization should go relatively smoothly. For example, previously vice-prime minister, but now more and Infrastructure Minister Borys Kolesnikov critical comments about the prospects of NATO expansion, “Ukrainian Aviation Group.”

“The Alliance, in effect, privatized 60% of passenger traffic in the Ukraine. We still have to ask the AMC, in general, how it happened and why, today, the ticket Kiev – Dnepropetrovsk – Kiev costs $ 500-600, “- said if Mr. Kolesnikov.

End of aristocratic debauchery

Our compatriots first appeared in a Milan fashion Mecca of luxury and mid-1990s and soon made a revolution in the minds of local merchants. “Purchasing power of these people was stunning! – Says the director of a jewelry store on Via Montenapoleone, – I once at a time to knock out a check for (then went to the expense of the lyre), corresponding to today’s € 350 000. ”

Previously, buyers from Russia, the money simply did not believe, moreover, it seemed, wanted to spend as much as possible and buy the most expensive. So that the local owners of boutiques and fast bearings have to hire Russian-speaking salespeople for communicating with a difficult customer. In this case, the consensus view montenapoleonovskih merchants, particularly refined taste, these buyers are also no different: basically they were interested in big name brands with the (primarily Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli), and most importantly – the things that it was impossible not to notice . Before “The Discreet Charm of the bourgeoisie” was far away.

But over time, and tastes, and habits of Russian regulars Milan fashion quadrilateral formed by the streets of Via Montenapoleone, Via Borgospesso, Via della Spiga and Via Sant’Adrea, gradually changed, and the beginning of the global crisis they have firmly taken the situation there is permanent VIP-persons. “Many have become regular customers, came at the time the next collection to be the first to get the latest news, happy to go to the boutiques, looking not just something expensive and brand, and a stylish, appropriate to their individual style,” – says the president of the Association Via Montenapoleone Guglielmo Mian.

Naturally, these clients were a real barometer of economic well-being and in every way holili, cherished and nurtured. However, the financial crisis has not bypassed this contingent, and many regulars just do not come on a regular shopping. “Of course, the Russian suffered much less than Americans or Europeans – personal shopper says Marina S. – Although some of my regular customers were those who lost more than a week € 50 000, yet they were very wealthy. Yet with their Montenapoleone as the wind blew. People began to think about where the money went. Previously, this just did not happen! ”

Fortunately for local merchants, the Russian crisis did not last so long, and in 2010 returned to the Russian amicably Montenapoleone and the neighborhood: According to the already mentioned association, the number of purchases for the first 9 months, 24% more than their number in 2009. In general, clients from Russia amounted to about 17% of all buyers, but to the 2007 level, according to Guglielmo Mian, far away. However, shock therapy, the crisis has not passed without leaving a trace, and buyers become less wasteful: the average cost of a one-time purchases remained at the level of crisis in 2009, little more than € 1000 (these data were obtained by the Association Via Montenapoleone in research conducted with the participation of companies and Premier Tax Free Global Blue) .

But not only in quantitative terms, manifests the difference between pre-and post-crisis clients. Changed their approach to the selection of brands and individual items. “Earlier it seemed that the Russian are not buying as much for themselves as to show others what they have recently shifted to personal taste – says Mian. – Steel in demand brands that are not too well known to the masses, but give a guarantee of exclusive quality: Pedrazzoni, Bucellati, Lorenzi, Sabbadini and – do not consider a lack of modesty! – My brand Larusmiani. In this lady, of course, more prone to emotional purchases and vending for a fur coat or necklaces are ready without hesitation to lay out more than a dozen of thousands, but men can in search of the right things around is not a store, not yet fully convinced of the correctness of his choice. ”

Pietro Dzangrandi, director of the boutique jewelry brand Rosato, admits: “Several years ago we buyers from Russia just did not look, because our brand is interesting for its design, original shapes and colors and quite democratic prices on. And recently, Russian began to show interest in us! ”

In other words, the crisis has taught regulars Via Montenapoleone in Russia to spend money carefully, and the Milanese businessmen showed that the Russian clients should be treated in new ways: to replace the brand-oriented came to value-oriented buyers, which is not enough to offer the popular brand – they have to convince that the purchased item is beautiful, exclusive, prestigious, and most importantly, qualitative. After all, these days offer truly limitless: from the boutiques of the same brand in Moscow, albeit much more expensive to cheaper suburban outlets, has long cultivated a thrifty fellow, where today’s customers Montenapoleone is not considered shameful to look sometimes.
