OSLO, June 5 (Reuters) - Norway reduced its stake in property company Entra by selling an 11% stake for 2.5 billion crowns ($288 million), the industry ministry said on Wednesday, as part of the centre-right government’s privatisation push.
After the transaction, the Norwegian state will keep a 22.4% stake in the firm, one of the leading property companies in the Nordic country.
The buyers are “existing and new shareholders in Norway and abroad,” the industry ministry said in a statement, without naming them. ABG Sundal Collier, Carnegie and UBS advised the ministry.
