The head of the board of NJSC Naftogaz Ukrainy, Andriy Kobolyev, announced that negotiations had begun with the minority shareholders of PJSC Ukrnafta on the division of the company's assets, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“There is feedback. We created a working group and started negotiations with minority shareholders on the next steps for the future of Ukrnafta. We, as a majority shareholder, will propose and have already proposed division,” he said in a comment to the agency.
At the end of January 2021, Naftogaz, as the majority shareholder of Ukrnafta, sent a letter to the company's minority shareholders about the desire to hold a meeting of shareholders.
In early February, Naftogaz sent a notice to the supervisory board of the oil company about the need to start studying and considering the issue of dividing its assets into business areas with minority shareholders.
Recall that the debt settlements between the government, Naftogaz and Ukrnafta have been completed.
