Hellenic Post…

A Dow Jones report yesterday suggested that Belgium’s main postal company Bpost has expressed an interest in acquiring a 39 percent stake in the Hellenic Post. The report cites ‘reliable sources’ who said that other international firms in the sector have also expressed an interest. The Greek state is planning the sale of a 39 percent stake (with 10 percent belonging to Hellenic Postbank), while a few weeks ago Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou revealed that a major western European postal agency was interested in Hellenic Post.
