MOSCOW, November 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Mikhail Prokhorov’s ONEXIM Group has agreed to buy 21.75% of Uralkali’s shares from Senator Suleiman Kerimov’s Suleiman Kerimov Foundation, ONEXIM reported on Monday.
The sides plan to close the deal shortly. The deal does not require permissions from the regulator. The parties have agreed not to reveal the cost, the report reads.
A source close to the deal told Itar-Tass the deal had been based on the earlier estimation of the company of $19-20 billion.
