November 24 (SeeNews) - Following are some of the main stories carried by the online versions of Montenegrin media on Tuesday morning. SeeNews has not verified these reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy:
- There has been talk of creating a third stock exchange in Montenegro initiated last week by Montenegrin economist and politician Veselin Vukotic and local brokerage Monte Adria broker, unnamed sources said. The idea was tabled after Serbian-based Atlas Group raised its stake in Montenegro’s two existing bourses last Wednesday, indicating they were headed for a merger. Following the Atlas Group move, Vukotic and Monte Adria lost control over the NEX Montenegro bourse.
- Not a single Montenegrin company has so far been fined for failing to hand in its financial statements to the Central Registry of the Commercial Court in Podgorica, court official Lidija Klikovac said. Some 15,000 firms have filed their 2008 financial statement but it is difficult to say just how many are yet to do so, she added. There are some 40,000 docketed corporate entities but not all of them are obliged to submit financial statements.
- Montenegro’s Fund for Pension and Disability Insurance said its revenue in the first ten months of the year totalled 159.34 million euro, down 4.0% on the year and 14% short of the plan.
