If the state decides to sell the Belgrade Stock Exchange, the Vienna Stock Exchange is interested in starting the negotiations on that acquisition, Vienna Stock Exchange CEO Heinrich Schaller announced today.
– We are certainly interested in expanding our operations and if some stock exchange is up for sale for some reason, we are interested in starting the negotiations as soon as possible. The same goes for the Belgrade Stock Exchange – Mr. Schaller said to the press.
As Belgrade Stock Exchange CEO Gordana Dostanic announced earlier, the Vienna Stock Exchange is not hiding its interest in acquisition of the Balkan stock exchanges, including the Belgrade Stock Exchange.
Dostanic also reminded that the Vienna Stock Exchange, one of the largest in the region, had already become the majority owner of stock exchanges in Ljubljana, Prague and Budapest, as well as that its representatives had already negotiated with the shareholders of the Belgrade Stock Exchange on possible sale of shares two years earlier.
