BUCHAREST (ICIS)--Romania’s Oltchim has forecast a zero net profit for this year, compared with losses of New Lei 270 m (€60m) in 2011, the pesticides and plastics manufacturer said on Thursday.
The company is targeting a turnover of New Lei 1.64bn, slightly up from last year's New Lei 1.53bn.
Oltchim is in the process of being privatised, with the government aiming to dispose of its 54.79% stake in an auction on 14 September.
In recent months, the Romanian government has been pushing forward with a privatisation timetable for the disposal of its majority stake in Oltchim, as part of a commitment to economic restructuring being carried out in consultation with, and with financial support from, the IMF.
The privatisation process has been postponed several times.
