More Assets Approved for Auction

Yukos creditors approved two more lots of the bankrupt company's assets that will include its stakes in energy and servicing companies, Vedomosti reported Tuesday.

The approvals came at a Monday session of the creditors committee dominated by representatives of the Federal Tax Service and Rosneft, the report said.

One of the lots includes Yukos' 4 percent stake in TGK-4, an electricity generating company covering 11 regions in the Central Federal District, the newspaper reported, citing a source close to the committee. It also includes blocking stakes in Tambov and Belgorod regional electricity generating, distributing and sales companies as well as a Belgorod-based energy consulting company called Korporativnye Servisnye Sistemy. In addition, the lot incorporates Yukos' fully owned energy trading affiliates Energoservis and Eskom-Energotreid.

The lot's starting price is $103 million. Analysts valued the assets from $188 million to $250 million and said Gazprom and Interros may bid.
