How it works?

When Company is going bancrupt in Russia its property is being sold on auction. Auctions details are being published in "Kommersant" newspaper on weekly basis every Saturday. Goods which are being sold on auctions include all type of property, equipment, machinery, cars, etc.  We are mainly buying on third stage of auction known as a public offer. Difference from first two auction sessions is that Price during public offer (3rd auction) is going down over a period of time before asset is being bought or minimum price is reached. 

Bancrupcy auctions are held on web-based electronic trade portals. Now it is more than 150 different electronic platforms where bancrupcy auctions are held, but principles of operation are the same for all of them. Buyer should register in advance and get authorisation by providing necessary legal documents. Also a prepayment to specified account is being made before your bid is being submitted. After changes in legislation on bancrupcy auctions in 2014 winner is defined as a Company which offered maximum price during corresponding active period of auction provided it has all necessary documentation in place.

Yes, foreign Companies are able to buy from bancrupcy auctions but all required documents should be translated and verified into Russian.
