For laborers on the enterprises lists of regular laborers at the time of equitization decision, for each year’s working for the State they shall be sold by the State up to 10 shares (the par value of a share is VND 100,000) with the reduction of 30% of the par value. According to this provision the laborers shall have to pay only VND 70,000 for each preferred share; the remainder of VND 30,000 is the preferential value offered by the State to the laborers.

2.2. Poor laborers in the equitized enterprises may buy shares at the preferential prices by deferred payment in 10 years, including 3 grace years. They shall make payment gradually in the 7 subsequent years without having to pay any interest. The total quantity of shares sold to poor laborers by mode of deferred payment must not exceed 20% of the total quantity of shares sold by the State at preferential prices to the laborers in the enterprises.

2.3. The total value of preference for laborers and preferences for the producers and suppliers of raw materials to the enterprises engaged in processing agricultural, forest and aquatic products, and the value of preferential shares sold by deferred payment to poor laborers shall be deducted from the State capital portion at the enterprises and must not exceed the actual value of the State capital portion at the enterprises after subtracting the capital amounts the State needs to hold and the equitization expenses.

The sale of preferential shares to the producers and suppliers of raw materials for the enterprises engaged in processing agricultural, forest and aquatic products shall be effected only after the plans on sale of preferential shares to laborers in the enterprises have been realized.

(The method of determining the quantities of shares sold at preferential prices to the laborers as well as producers and suppliers of raw materials in the equitized State enterprises is described in the appendix attached herewith (not printed here)).

The joint-stock companies shall have to monitor and organize the collection of the value of shares purchased with deferred payment and promptly remit it into the Fund for support of State enterprise arrangement and equitization.

2.4. The certificates of shares sold at preferential prices are registered ones which their owners can transfer only after three years as from the time of purchasing them. For shares sold by mode of deferred payment to the poor, their owners can sell them only after they have paid all debts to the State. Where the share owners have the demand to transfer their shares before this time limit, the approval of the Management Boards is required. The joint-stock companies shall give priority to repurchase these shares at the market prices and account them into the share funds for management and use according to the State-prescribed regime.

2.5. If the laborers who were recruited before April 21, 1998 lose their jobs or retire prematurely at the time of equitization or within 12 months after the enterprises are officially transformed into joint-stock companies, they shall enjoy allowances prescribed in the Government’s Decree No. 41/2002/ND-CP of April 11, 2002 on the policies towards redundant laborers due to re-arrangement of State enterprises, Circular No. 11/2002/TT-BLDTBXH of June 12, 2002 guiding the implementation of a number of articles of Decree No. 41/2002/ND-CP which are paid by the Fund for support of redundant laborers in the enterprises.

The laborers who are dismissed or lose their jobs and do not fall into the subjects entitled to allowances under the provisions of Decree No. 41/2002/ND-CP and the above-said documents shall enjoy allowances as prescribed by the Labor Code, which are paid by the Fund for enterprise rearrangement as prescribed in Clauses 5 and 6, Article 27 of the Government’s Decree No. 64/2002/ND-CP of June 19, 2002 on the transformation of State enterprises into joint-stock companies.
