SAMRUK-KAZYNA Outside criticism of Samruk-Kazyna

• State-owned companies enjoy better access to markets, credit, and licenses than private entities

• Samruk-Kazyna spent its first two years managing the government's anti-crisis program instead of focusing on strategic issues

• Samruk-Kazyna is exempt from government procurement

procedures and has the right to establish its own procurement rules

• The government can transfer to Samruk-Kazyna state-owned

property, simplifying the process to transfer state property to private owners (i.e., state property can be easily privatized without any tender process or observation of privatization legislation)

• Standard&Poors assessed Samruk-Kazyna's transparency at 24 out of a possible score of 100.


SAMRUK-KAZYNA Dualism of the goals

• Samruk-Kazyna controls all major state-owned assets and is expected to provide increase in their value

• Samruk-Kazyna has been a public policy instrument as the chief

operator of government’s anti-crisis policies that included stabilization of financial and banking sector, and revitalization of the economy

• The challenge for Samruk-Kazyna is to find the right balance

between pure commercial goals of maximizing the value of portfolio companies and responsibilities before the government to implement economic programs in modernization and diversification

• Samruk-Kazyna needs press further with implementing

acknowledged corporate governance principles based on highest international practices which will result in a more transparent decision making processes 27


Upcoming plans: Raise portfolio companies to the status of “champions” of the national economy with capability: - to introduce and adopt innovations - to implement complex and high-degree projects - compete on the regional and global markets

• Launch “people’s IPO” of selected portfolio companies: - to give the Kazakh stock market a stimulus

- to provide domestic households with investment opportunities

• Increase the management efficiency of portfolio companies: - by developing corporate documentations and regulations

- by implementing strategic decision making procedures - by adopting accurate assessment criteria 28
