The transaction supports overall Unipetrol’s reorganization of activities, which were triggered by taking full control over the refining assets in the Czech Republic.

The purchase price of this shareholding is 1 million EUR.

The main company of the Group remains Unipetrol RPA. The project is in line with the Unipetrol Group strategy and its goal is to better adjust the Company to function in a highly demanding and very competitive market and open it to new business challenges.
“We see the acquisition of the Spolana company as a very important step for further improvement of management and coordination of our value chain, namely with regard to the utilisation of the steam cracker,“ said Marek Świtajewski, CEO of Unipetrol. “Takeover of Spolana opens up additional possibilities to further strengthen and integrate Unipetrol’s position in the Czech Republic,“ added Marek Świtajewski.
