The AVTOVAZ board of directors will discuss a new anti-crisis plan

At the meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday the AVTOVAZ board of directors will discuss a new investment plan of the company for the next years as well as the results of work of the anti-crisis committee.
Gazeta.Ru informs that one of most urgent questions, which will be discussed at the meeting of board of directors, will be the offer about termination of work of the anti-crisis committee which began its work in April 2009. The anti-crisis committee of AVTOVAZ has completely fulfilled its task, in particular, has provided control over the state support, got in the form of the loan from Rostechnologies at the rate of 25 billion of rubles, and how it was used by the plant. The second important question, which members of the board of directors can touch, will be approval of the new investment program of AVTOVAZ for 2010-2012. It was informed earlier that it will be reduced twice up to 42 billion rubles in comparison with the earlier forecasted 80 billion rubles.
Besides, the AVTOVAZ board of directors can discuss the plan for production of cars till the end of this year. In particular, these plans include production of about 330 thousand cars that is almost in 2.5 times less than in 2008.
Management forecasts concerning finance figures of AVTOVAZ for the results of 2009 are unfavorable also. According to the president of the plant, Igor Komarov, deficits of the company following the results of this year can be about 35 billion rubles. Thus AVTOVAZ can get additional financial aid. However the company can get the state guarantees only after presenting the detailed business plan for overcoming the crisis. Thus, business plan discussion will be one more important question at the AUTOVAZ board of directors.
The board of directors also can consider the question of staff-reduction up to 75 thousand by 2010. Earlier the AVTOVAZ management agreed with trade unions about reduction of 27.6 thousand people.
