Elemental Holding has a long-term interest in the vertical integration of the entire urban mining chain, and Alumetal’s aluminum business fits perfectly into this strategy, CEO Paweł Jarski informed in the context of the announced invitation to submit offers for the sale of Alumetal shares.
“Our goal is to acquire a total of no more than 49.99% of Alumetal’s share capital. We intend to take over a minority stake in this company and incorporate it into the structures of the Elemental Group. We are convinced that our offer, especially after today’s increase, is attractive in particular to pension funds, which are obliged to be guided solely by the interests of their clients – future retirees, and therefore cannot accept a less attractive competitive offer. The same applies to investment funds. Violation of this rule would certainly attract the attention of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority, said Jarski, quoted in the release.
As a result of the settlement of the above transactions of Elemental Alu related entities and as a result of the purchase of shares under this invitation, the intention of Elemental Alu and its related entities is to achieve a total of no more than 7,817,142 shares constituting in total no more than 49.99% of the share capital of the company and entitling to no more than 49.99% of the total number of votes at the company’s general meeting. The acquisition of up to 49.99% of all Alumetal shares is aimed at taking control of the company, whose activities perfectly fit into the strategy of the Elemental Holding group in the area of aluminum.
