Uralkali Approves Share Issue

Uralkali's board of directors voted Monday to issue 1.2 billion new shares to facilitate a merger with fellow potash miner Silvinit, Uralkali said in a statement.

The new shares each have a par value of 0.50 rubles, and a total par value of 600 million rubles ($20.58 million). The additional Uralkali shares are expected to be converted into Silvinit ordinary and preferred shares. The conversion ratio for Silvinit's ordinary and preferred shares is 0.0075 and 0.019, respectively, per Uralkali ordinary share.

A total of 1,565,151 ordinary shares of Silvinit are planned for acquisition by Uralkali. The board also voted to appoint Vladislav Baumgertner chief executive and to eliminate the position of Uralkali president.


… 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.
