Company Restructuring and Privatisation in Ukraine1


  • Saul Estrin



In this paper we report on the preliminary findings from a survey of Ukrainian enterprises undertaken in the first half of 1997. The survey instrument was designed to address questions of corporate ownership, performance and restructuring in Ukrainian industry during the transition period 1991-1997. This paper provides descriptive results, to be supplemented by empirical work in a later study. This paper is organised as follows. We first outline the original objective of the data collection examined and set the Ukrainian economic context, in which our sample firms were operating. This highlights some key issues for future analysis of the data. We have not yet had the opportunity to analyse the data set in full. However, some exciting preliminary results are presented in the fourth section, which focuses on ownership structures, company performance and restructuring.
