BP begins next stage in TNK-BP sale process
BP announced that it is beginning the next stage in the process, required under the TNK-BP shareholder agreement, regarding the potential sale of its shareholding in TNK-BP.
This follows the decision of Alfa Access-Renova to exercise its right to enter a period of negotiation to purchase part/ all of BP’s 50% share in TNK-BP. As a result BP will enter into a 90-day period of “good faith” negotiations with Alfa Access-Renova as required by the TNK-BP shareholder agreement.
BP is also able to and will enter into negotiations with other interested parties in parallel for the sale of its share in TNK-BP.
There can be no guarantee that any transaction will take place, the company said.
