Potash Merger On Again

Potash producer Uralkali said Wednesday that a court has lifted an injunction on its merger with Silvinit, allowing the deal to proceed on schedule.

The court in Perm put the injunction in place in February after fertilizer producer and Silvinit shareholder Acron filed a claim over the terms of the merger. Uralkali and Silvinit, both majority-owned by Suleiman Kerimov and associates, announced a $23.9 billion merger earlier this year to create the world's second-largest potash producer. The deal is expected to be completed in May.

… 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.
