Russia’s Uralvagonzavod May Buy Serbian Steel Plant, Blic Says

October 10, 2012

NPO Uralvagonzavod OAO, a Russian state-owned maker of battle tanks and railcars, will probably buy Zelezara Smederevo d.o.o., Serbia’s sole steel plant, Blic reported, citing an unidentified person.

The Serbian government, which invited bids for Zelezara on Oct. 8, has been negotiating with Uralvagonzavod for weeks, as it seeks an investor for the unprofitable plant that it bought back from U.S. Steel Corp (X:US) in January, according to the newspaper.
