Completion of the European Commission's investigation into State aid granted to Oltchim SA

Oltchim S.A. informs shareholders that on 17.12.2018 a press release regarding the completion of the investigation launched in April 2016 was published on the European Commission (EC) website to establish whether certain measures taken by Romania in support of Oltchim complied with EU rules on State aid.

The Commission concluded that the public funding granted by Romania to Oltchim, about 335 million EUR plus interest, is incompatible with EU State aid rules and has to be recovered by Romania from Oltchim SA.

The statement also states that the company which acquired the assets, namely Chimcomplex SA, did not benefit from the previous aid granted to Oltchim and is therefore not required to reimburse them.

At the request of the entitled authority / authorities, Oltchim SA will enter the amount set as state aid to be recovered in the creditors' table, according to the national insolvency law.

Attached is the full press release of the European Commission, taken from the site of the institution.
