Tajikistan founded OJSC NBO Roghun with an authorized capital of 116 million somoni for completing the construction of the Roghun station in April 2008 after it formally revoked a contract with Russia''s RusAl aluminum company for the construction of the Roghun HPP in August 2007.  The Tajik government accused the Russian company of failing to fulfill the contract signed in 2004.  Tajik authorities and RusAl became bogged down in the hydroelectric plant''s dam model and height, crucial factors in its capacity.

To raise funds to complete construction of the Roghun HPP the government started to sell shares in Roghun to people on January 6, 2010.  Tajikistan has reportedly issued 6 billion somoni worth of Roghun shares.

22,000 people are reportedly holders of the Certificates of Shares (the face value of one Certificate of Shares is 5,000 somoni) and nearly 2 million people are holders of shares of the face values of 100, 500 and 1,000 somoni.
