New Owners of Corporate Iran

In line with Iran’s privatization process, it is evident that the majority of leading government companies (active in key industries such as petroleum, telecommunications, power generation, transportation etc.) is being transferred to organizations that can be considered “semi-governmental”, i.e. investment entities affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the Baseej, various state-affiliated pension funds and other semi-official entities. This development will, on the one side, change the dynamics in the management of these entities and on the other side, could potentially provide hidden risks and opportunities. In fact, while the ownership of certain Iranian companies by these entities or former military commanders and officials may afford business advantages for potential foreign partners, it may also be counterbalanced by unknown regulatory obligations or negative repercussions to the foreign company’s image or reputation. The goal of this report is to better understand the changing dynamics, emerging opportunities and practical limitations of cooperation or investment opportunities with these companies.
