After acquiring a blocking stake in Mosenergo during 2003-2004, Gazprombank took an active part in managing the company, with the Bank’s representatives serving on Mosenergo Board of Directors, Investment, Audit and Restructuring Committees.
Under the Bank’s supervision and advice, Mosenergo underwent a major restructuring in 2005, with its power generation, grid, distribution, supply and service units spun off into separate entities.
In 2007, Gazprombank arranged the acquisition of Mosenergo by Gazprom. During 2006-2008 the Bank successfully exited a number of investments acquired as a result of the Mosenergo restructuring and still owns minority stakes in MOESK and Mosenergosbyt, two entities spun off from Mosenergo and responsible for electric power distribution and sales in the Moscow metropolitan area. The Bank’s representatives still serve as board members of both companies supervising their management and providing advice on strategic matters.
