Surprise element: even though there are market rumors that BT is allied with Pogonaru, it is possible it will support Tudor Ciurezu at SIF Oltenia.
     *  There are market rumors that the Banca Transilvania group, as well as Swiss Capital are the most important players in the elections
     *  The ASF can use sanctions for acting in concert to tilt the scales in favor of one side or the other
       The elections for new elections at the SIF are causing tumult on the stock market. What's at stake are the assets of 1.69 billion Euros of the five companies.
     With a maximum holding limit of 5% in each SIF, the shareholders have already made their nominations for the directors of SIF1 Banat Crișana, SIF2 Moldova, SIF3 Transilvania and SIF5 Oltenia and are at the stage of negotiating the lists. Shareholders have to forge coalitions, because the vote is not cumulative, and the calculations have to be done in such a manner that candidates have to get at least 51% of the votes from the present shareholders, if they are to get a seat in the next executive structures.
     Last minute betrayals and misleading rumors are nothing out of the ordinary, and one element that could change plans are the sanctions for acting in concert which the Financial Oversight Authority can issue. In the past, the predecessor of the ASF, the CNVM, decided that certain entities were acting in concert and restricted the voting rights for some shareholder groups, on the very night before two of the general shareholder meetings.
     The elections of SIF Oltenia have drawn the highest interest, so far, judging by the name of 17 candidates, with the main "attraction" being the 6% stake in BCR that SIF Oltenia has in its portfolio.
     There are rumors in the market that one of the most important players in this year's elections at the SIFs is the Banca Transilvania group, as well as the group led by Swiss Capital.
     There are some rumors that BT seeks a greater influence on all the executive structures of the SIFs, after four years ago, the president of Banca Transilvania, Horia Ciorcilă, and Radu Hanga, executive director of Strategy Coordination Department of Banca Transilvania, joined the board of SIF Moldova.
     Officially however, Banca Transilvania has recorded candidates only at SIF Moldova and SIF Oltenia.
     Other voices claim that Swiss Capital wants greater influence at the SIFs, at, coincidentally or not, it has two candidates for SIF2 and SIF5, and furthermore, it is close to SIF1 Banat Crișana and implicitly, SIF4 Muntenia.
     The interest of BT in SIF5 is demonstrated by the fact that the Group is moving Radu Hanga from SIF2 to SIF Oltenia, which has traditionally been the battleground between businessman Florin Pogonaru and current president Tudor Ciurezu.
     Even though there is talk in the market that BT has made an alliance with Pogonaru, some sources are saying that there is a strong possibility of BT supporting Tudor Ciurezu as well, aside from Ana Bobircă, nominated by investment fund Business Capital for Romania Opportunity Fund (BOF), controlled by Florin Pogonaru and Erste Bank.
     According to some market sources, BT and Pogonaru also support Cristian Micu, board member at the BSE, and Ștefan Filip, of the EBRD, for the management of SIF5. Ștefan Filip, who is also supported by SIF2 CEO Costel Ceocea, was nominated by Grigore Filip, who is the CEO of Aerostar, in which SIF Moldova, has a stake of 14.9%.
     There are some rumors that the Ciurezu side also includes Swiss Capital, but which has nominated Sorin Apostol and Ioana-Valeria Avram, nominated by two shareholders.
     Aside from Ciurezu, five members of the current Board of Directors, namely vice-president Anina Radu, Cristian Bușu (current president of Electrica), Victor Căpitanu (of One United Properties), Nicolae Stoian and Carmen Popa.
     Bogdan Iliescu, who sits on the Boards of Electrica and Transgaz, wants a seat on the Board of Directors of SIF5, as does Gabriel Crețu, of Adwisers Financial IFN, and Liviu Giugiumică, of Trident Capital Investments, one of the oldest brokerages on the Romanian stock market. There are rumors in the market that it is backed by funds in London, involved in the Romanian market, as well as a major real estate investor in Romania. The shareholders of SIF Oltenia have also nominated Dorel Berceanu and Mircea Oancea.
     With a battle of such scale, market sources are saying that all the candidates are making "pilgrimages" to the NN and Allianz funds for support.
     Things are still fluid at SIF Oltenia, and the elections of April 4th will show more clearly the alliances in the market, which will also matter later for SIF Banat Crișana and SIF Transilvania.
     On Friday, three "deal" transactions with SIF5 shares were made, representing 3.75% of the capital of the issuer in total, for a total amount of 41.38 million lei, at a price of 1.9 lei/share up almost 16% over the beginning of last week. Shares of SIF5 saw spikes of 4.15% and 3.63% in the two days that preceded the deals, which were made at a price 7.34% higher than the reference.
     At SIF Moldova, the current Board has proposed five candidates. The agenda also includes the proposal to cut the number of members on the Board of Directors from seven to five: Horia Ciorcilă, Octavian Radu, Iancu Cătălin Jianu, vice-president Claudiu Doroș and chairman Costel Ceocea.
     Swiss Capital has two nominations for SIF2 Moldova, namely Robert Cosmin Pană and Olimpiu Blăjuț.
     At SIF Transilvania, the elections will be held on April 28th, and over there, market sources expect a new confrontation between the shareholder faction that supports current CEO Mihai Fercală and that of Constantin Frățilă, one of the biggest shareholders of SIF3.
     The elections of SIF Banat Crișana will be held on April 20th. President SIF1 Bogdan Drăgoi and vice-president Octavian Avrămoiu each want a new term, just like the other board members Ion Stancu, Dan Weiler and Ionel-Marian Ciucioi. Aside from the current board members, three more individuals have submitted their candidacies: Marcel Heinz Pfister, deputy director Bank Alpinum AG, lawyer Radu Răzvan Străuț, who between 2010 and 2015 worked with Reff și Asociații, and Sorin Marica, former advisor in the Ministry of Tourism, former chairman of brokerage firm Active International and president of Dracula Park.
     Market sources are talking about disagreements at the top of SIF1, and given that SIFs have holdings in each others, their resolution will influence the vote that SIF1 will cast in these elections.

THE QUICK RISE OF THE INDEX WHICH SETS THE TREND FOR INTEREST RATES ON LOANS DENOMINATED IN LEI ISN'T STOPPING

     * Minister Toma Petcu, former ministers Răzvan Nicolescu and Victor Grigorescu, the representatives of the state in the executive structure of OMV Petrom and Mihai Busuioc, the president of the Court of Auditors were heard today in the Investigation Commission
       The executives of OMV Petrom mentioned, in a letter addressed to the parliament, the existence of four lawsuits brought by the National Energy Regulation Authority (ANRE) and of seven audits by the Authority, between 2012-2017, as the recent request for information by the Commission for the Investigation of the activity of the ANRE targeted a period of 12 years, from 2015 to 2017.  details
14.11.2017
THE EURO AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH
     * Vasilescu: "We cannot say that the currency market has gone off the rails, the exchange rate has moved 4 bani in 4 days"
     * "Perhaps it is a simple coincidence the fact that on November 8th was approved the Emergency Ordinance of the Fiscal Code and it was also on that day that the Euro rose past 4.6 lei", said Mr. Vasilescu
       The leu yesterday reached a historic low against the Euro, 4.6495 lei/Euro, up 1.05 over the previous meeting, marking the fourth day where the exchange rate was above 4.6 lei.  details
13.11.2017
     In October, the Romanian Commercial Bank, through Schoenherr și Asociații, has submitted, with the County Court of Bihor, a request for the insolvency of the European Drinks group, owned by the Micula brothers.

     * Sevil Shhaideh and Radu-Spiridon Cojocaru, the representatives of the state on the Supervisory Board of OMV Petrom, also called in for hearings
     * Costin: "We have notified the Audit Body of the Prime-Minister"
       The management of OMV Petrom, namely Mrs. Mariana Gheorghe, as well as the representatives of the Romanian state on the Supervisory Board of OMV Petrom, Sevil Shhaideh and Radu-Spiridon Cojocaru will be invited to appear in the hearings on the Investigation Commission for the activity of the ANRE, the members of the Commission decided on Thursday.  details
09.11.2017
     * The fear that wages will drop is unjustified
       The government's proposal to transfer the social security contributions exclusively to the employee is not at all a social-democratic measure and not even one of redistribution, rather it is one of an ultra-liberal nature, which leaves the employer in the unique position in Europe of not contributing in no way whatsoever to the social security systems (retirement and unemployment) or healthcare.  details
08.11.2017
     * A 39% stake belongs to Russian millionaire Sergey Lobanov, who is being criminally investigated in Russia for alcohol contraband
       Banca Transilvania intends to buy an initial stake of over 39% of Victoriabank, the third largest bank in the Republic of Moldova, and together with the EBRD, would own a majority stake, according to a press release sent yesterday.  details
07.11.2017
     * Brokers: The depreciation of EL, amid the drop in the market, as well as due to deal with the FP
     * Adrian Simionescu: "Investors feel the price at which EL has acquired from the Proprietatea Fund its stakes is very high and unjustified"
     * The FP-Electrica deal, among the topics of the PNL vote of no-confidence against Energy minister Toma Petcu
       It seems the stock market did not take kindly to the approval of the transaction by which "Electrica" acquires the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund in its branches, at least for now, because EL stock dropped abruptly, immediately after the general shareholder meeting of October 26th.  details
06.11.2017
     Finally, after many statements concerning the fundamental changes in the fiscal policy, announced from one day to the next and then denied, we have the argumentation note and the draft of the emergency ordinance to amend the Tax Code published, which the Ministry of Public Finance will apply starting with the beginning of next year.  details
01.11.2017
PSD SENATOR EUGEN TEODOROVICI:
     * "The MADR made a «shopping list» of projects - with local level libraries and a ferry for crossing the Danube"
     * "Within three years at most, Romania can draw 3 billion Euros in European funds"
     * "Unfortunately, Romania promotes politicians instead of promoting specialists"
       Romania has embarrassed itself with the proposals that had been initially prepared for the Juncker plan, said Eugen Teodorovici. Mr. Teodorovici is the president of the Budget and Finance Commission of the Romanian Senate, member of the European Affairs Commission and former minister of European Funds.  details

27.10.2017
RUMORS: THE NEW CEO OF THE BSE, SOUGHT IN THE BANKING INDUSTRY
     * Two months have passed since Sobolewski's term expired
       Even though the management of the Bucharest Stock Exchange has not been officially announced, the result of the interviews for the position of CEO held on September 25th, it seems that already a new search has been launched, which focuses on the banking sector.  details
27.10.2017
     * Lucian Bode: "I have great doubts that the state will come out a winner from the FP-Electrica transaction and I don't think that this acquisition constitutes a zero priority for the company"
     * Gabriel Dumitrașcu: "I hope that by tomorrow (ed. note: today) at 10:00, the ASF will issue a statement, otherwise it means Mircea Ursache is reckless"
       The General Shareholder Meeting of Electrica set to take place today announces itself very interesting as, on the agenda, it includes the election of the members of the Board of Directors by applying the cumulative voting method, as well as approving the acquisition by Electrica of the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund (21% each) in the distribution subsidiaries of Muntenia Nord, Transilvania Nord, Transilvania Sud and Electrica Furnizare, for a price of 752,031,841 lei, a cost higher by 60 million for the company compared to the failed negotiation of March 2016.  details
