Rotenberg Buys Rossosh

Arkady Rotenberg agreed to buy 80 percent of Minudobreniya in an acquisition that may value the fertilizer maker at $1.3 billion.

The deal includes a 30 percent stake in Rossosh, as Minudobreniya is known, from Yara International that Rotenberg bought for $390 million, Oslo-based Yara said in a filing Wednesday.

Yara received net dividends of $64 million ahead of the transaction, the statement shows. The deal will add about 1.4 billion kroner ($261 million) to Yara's third-quarter pretax income, it said. Yara controlled 30 percent of Rossosh through a 38 percent interest in Yaibera, which owned 80 percent of the Russian fertilizer maker, the filing shows.

… 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.
