"A deed of transfer has just been signed. It will take effect at midnight," VST spokeswoman Edita Sirutienė told BNS.

VST is taking over most of Vilniaus Energija's employees, more than 600 people, and will employ 670 people in total, she said.

The lease ended, but there are still many unresolved issues between Vilniaus Energija and the city.
