Uralkali, Silvinit Merger a Go

Shareholders in Uralkali and Silvinit voted at extraordinary meetings to approve the merger of the two companies, Uralkali said in a statement.

The measure was approved by 90.9 percent of the Silvinit shares and by 98.9 percent of the Uralkali shares voted at the respective meetings Friday. Uralkali shareholders also approved the acquisition of about 20 percent of Silvinit and a number of deals needed to finance the acquisition.

The merger is scheduled for completion in May 2011, given that all necessary permits from regulators are received. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
