Consortium of AVE, DEKONTA, ECOSOIL and PPF will come with significantly lower price offer in the public tender on removal of environmental burden in the Czech Republic
Consortium’s experts, both lawyers and environmental clean-up specialists, have dedicated a plenty of time and effort to a solid preparations of the tender documentation, as well as appellations to the antitrust office. Arguments in favour of the consortium are ultimate and strong.
The consortium therefore declares that it is willing to accept voluntarily reduction of the time needed for analyses of the tender documentation in so called dataroom – to roughly 30-50 days. The existing tender timeline would not be dramatically distorted.
Based on information available, as well as on its own analyses and calculations the consortium will be able to come with a significantly lower price offer, compared to the expected maximum level according to the current calculations made by the Ministry of Finance.
Says Alexej Bechtin, a Spokesperson for PPF Group, which is a leader of the consortium: “We are delighted that the Anti-monopoly Office acknowledged our expert and legal arguments. We have been working hard, being devoted to our offer for the public tender. Our consortium has enough professionals, experience and resources available to undertake such huge clean-up work by its own. We can anyway declare right now, that a significantly lower final price offer could be expected from our side – compared to the ultimate boundary published so far. We will be able to precise the amount after the dataroom is closed.”
