Transport companies narrowed their losses, energy companies greatly increased their profits from a year earlier. At the same time both show an increase in revenue, which continued throughout the first half of 2011. The strong financial result of the largest state companies means a significantly higher dividend for the state.

ORGANIZATION OF THE STATE OWNERSHIP Joint-stock company (JSC) a company whose capital stock is divided into shares. The company (not the shareholders) shall be liable before its creditors with its assets. All shares can be possessed by a single person – in our case – the state. Limited liability company (LLC) may be formed by one or more persons who shall be liable for the company's obligations with their contributions to the company's registered capital. It blends elements of partnership and corporate structures.
JOINT-STOCK COMPANY Corporate structure means: Legal personality Centralized management under a board structure Its existence does not depend on membership Limited liability Transferable shares
JOINT-STOCK COMPANY They may be “public” or closely (privately) held The single owner is registered in Commerce Register. Several shareholders are not registered Organs of JSC are the general meeting of shareholders/single owner the board of directors (one-tier system), or the supervisory board and the managing board (two-tier system)
JOINT-STOCK COMPANY GENERAL MEETING/ SINGLE OWNER amends the Articles of Association; resolves on increase or reduction of the capital stock; resolves on transformation and dissolution of the company; elects and recalls the members of the board of directors, or of the supervisory board as the case may be; determines the remuneration of the members of the supervisory board, or of the board of directors appoints and dismisses registered auditors;
