What happens to my shares (as a retail investor) as a result of the (complete) delisting?

The fungibility and visibility of the shares are considerably restricted by the delisting. Shareholders' rights, including the right to participate and exercise voting rights at the Annual General Meeting, remain unchanged. However, as a result of the delisting, the shares held can only be sold over the counter if the seller finds a buyer.

Why has the decision only been taken in September 2023? The reasons given have been relevant for some time.

We initially hoped that the situation in Ukraine would improve more quickly. From today's perspective, this is not the case. In addition, we unfortunately see that capital market interest in companies with the focus of their operating activities in Russia is likely to remain very low for years to come.

Will Ekotechnika still report on financial figures or important corporate events in the future?

The company's annual and consolidated financial statements will continue to be published in accordance with statutory requirements. The further procedure for publishing important corporate news (for example in the form of press releases/corporate news) will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
