According to edition sources, the chairman of the supervisory board of Alfa Group Mikhail Friedman estimated Alfa-Bank at $7-8 billion that corresponds to its book value in $7.1 billion, however "any of informal discussions did not promote" — discussion with UniCredit began and came to the end more than a year ago, and discussion happened to VTB several months ago. The representative of owners of Alfa-Bank disproved negotiating, FT notes. "Nothing was absolute similar. Sale of bank is not realistic from many points of view now. One of them is that we receive 13-14% of profitability of equity and we do not want to sell" — the newspaper cites words of the representative of owners of bank. UniCredit refused comments. At the end of November the head of VTB Andrey Kostin said that VTB does not plan to buy Alfa-Bank "in the next three years at least".
