Resolution published on June 2 provided for investment in the partnership fund of 14 percent of shares of Oil and Gas Corporation of Georgia, 49 percent of the shares of Commercial operator of the electricity system, 34 percent of the shares of Public Power System of Georgia. Telasi wasn't present in the original list of partnership fund's investors. Under the same resolution, 34 percent of the shares of Georgian Railways and 99 percent of the shares of Karchal Energy were invested in the fund.
Under the new order, a decision was made to invest 100 percent of Georgian Railways' shares in the authorized capital of the partnership fund.
