OJSC Svyazinvest (Russian: ОАО Связьинвест) is Russia's largest telecommunications holding company founded according to the Order №1297 of the Government of Russia on November 25, 1994, as a 100% state-owned company and registered on September 18, 1995.
In the late 90s some of its shares were privatized.
The company was created in accordance with Presidential Decree №1989 "On Specific Features of State Management of the Public Switched Network in the Russian Federation" dated October 10, 1994 and Government Resolution №1297 dated November 25, 1994 and Government Resolution №742 dated July 24, 1995. Svyazinvest's charter capital was formed by consolidating state-owned stakes in 85 joint stock telecommunications companies. Svyazinvest passed official state registration on September 18, 1995.
In accordance with Resolution №618 issued by the Russian government on May 23, 1997, the Russian Federal Property Fund and the State Committee of the Russian Federation for State Property Management put up for sale an interest equaling 25% + 1 share in Svyazinvest at a cash auction without any investment terms.
In November 1999 Svyazinvest's Board of Directors made amendments to the company's charter, according to which the company turned into a management company. As part of the measures to assign the status of a management company to Svyazinvest work got under way to improve procedures for manage associates, specifically, by consolidating companies located in one region.
