In mid-November, the Rolf group was officially put up for sale, and there are foreign companies among potential buyers.
The company, controlled by the family of businessman Sergei Petrov, is for sale.
The investigation put on the international wanted list the founder of the largest Russian car dealer Rolf and member of the Forbes list, Sergey Petrov, and asks the court to arrest him in absentia. The businessman is accused of illegally taking abroad 4 billion rubles.
The assessment of Rolf Estate, because of the sale of which the founder of Rolf, Sergey Petrov, was accused of bringing 4 billion rubles abroad, was ready two months before the deal. The investigation calls the transaction a fictitious, and the assessment is "repeatedly inflated."
The founder of the auto dealer Rolf, ex-State Duma deputy Sergei Petrov told RBC about the criminal case, because of which searches are conducted in the company's central office and dealerships.
However, some dealers are watching the sales and still optimistic.
Rolf is the largest Russian car dealer as of the end of 2014 in terms of the revenue, 131.1 billion rubles, and the number of cars sold, 91 693 new cars. It is also Russia's largest company headed by a woman.
