The shareholders approved, inter alia, amendments to the articles of incorporation of the Company and changes to the composition of the Board of Directors.

  • Otari Arshba
  • Bruno Bolfo

The EGM also authorised the Board of Directors to re-appoint Mr. Valery I. Khoroshkovsky as CEO, and to delegate day to day management to the CEO.

The resolutions, election of new members of the Board of Directors and amendments to the articles are conditional on completion of the Transaction.
