Fortum receives clearance for Uniper investment under Russian Strategic Investment Law
FORTUM CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 4 JUNE 2018 AT 18.10 EEST
Fortum has today received a formal clearance from the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) under the Strategic Investment Law for the acquisition of up to 50% of shares and voting rights in Uniper.
The completion of Fortum’s Public Takeover Offer (PTO) on Uniper still requires merger clearances under competition law in Russia and the EU, both of which are in process. Fortum expects to have received all the regulatory decisions in mid-2018 and to close the PTO shortly thereafter. Clearances in the United States and South Africa have already been granted.
