The High Court of London declared null and void the sale of Norilsk Nickel's shares to the structures of Roman Abramovich to Vladimir Potanin's structures. The loss of Abramovich in the form of lost profits amounted to about $ 180 million.
The largest shareholder of Norilsk Nickel explained that if he had combined the packages with other co-owners, they would have saved: the tax on dividends is not paid when holding more than 50%. But the partners refused.
UC Rusal accused Vladimir Potanin of collusion with Roman Abramovich when agreeing on the terms of the purchase of 4% of Norilsk Nickel, and an additional incentive was a deal on the Baim deposit. Potanin denies all this.
Vladimir Potanin told the High Court of London the whole truth about his proposal to Oleg Deripaska on his shares of Norilsk Nickel.
Rusal is in no hurry to buy out shares of Norilsk Nickel from Roman Abramovich.
The share of Interros in MMC Norilsk Nickel reached 32.9%.
Oleg Deripaska, whose companies are burdened with debts, and Vladimir Potanin, who launched several large investment projects, agreed to buy out 4% of Norilsk Nickel from Roman Abramovich. The amount of the transaction can be about 1.5 billion dollars. But the conflict between billionaires is far from over.
But Oleg Deripaska can still deploy the deal.
Due to the minority stake of Roman Abramovich and Alexander Abramov, a lawsuit in London broke out.
