The Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine has permitted BAU-Capital LLC belonged to the owners of the Kovalska industrial and construction group to gain control over public joint-stock company Darnytsia Reinforced Concrete Constructions Plant and Beton Service LLC (all based in Kyiv).
The committee said that the regulator permitted the company to buy shares in PJSC Darnytsia Reinforced Concrete Constructions Plant and a stake in the charter capital of Beton Service LLC, granting over 50% of the votes in the management bodies of the two companies.
In January 2018, the committee started hearing a case regarding gaining control by BAU-Capital over the two above-mentioned companies. The case concerns the concentration of the Kovalska industrial and construction group on the concrete mixture market in Ukraine.
BAU-Capital currently has control over PJSC Svitlana Kovalska Reinforced-Concrete Constructions Plant (RCCP), Beton Complex and Avtobudcomplex-K LLC selling readymix concrete under the Concrete from Kovalska trademark.
The Kovalska industrial and construction group was founded in 2006.
