A project foreseeing the possible provision of EUR 100 million to Myronivsky Hliboproduct (MHP, Ukraine) agricultural company by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) requires review, EBRD Senior Advisor on External Affairs Anton Usov has told Interfax-Ukraine.
“Some media reports that the EBRD allegedly rejected this project are not true. It was not even submitted to the board of directors for consideration,” he said on Thursday.
Usov said that the new date for its consideration by the bank’s directors will be announced additionally.
As reported, in January 2019, the EBRD said that in March 2019 its directors could consider the issue of providing EUR 100 million to MHP to acquire Slovenia’s Perutnina Ptuj.
In November 2018 MHP signed an agreement to acquire a 90.68% stake in Slovenia’s Perutnina Ptuj, a vertically integrated company in Southeastern Europe.
