Rosneft Buys AAR's Stake in TNK-BP for $28 Bln

Rosneft has signed an agreement to purchase from the AAR Consortium (Alfa Group, Access Industries and Renova) its 50% stake in TNK-BP.

The purchase price in the transaction is determined based on the base value of AAR’s stake in TNK-BP of $28 bln. Completion of the transaction is subject to approvals from Russian and European antimonopoly bodies and is expected to occur in the first half of 2013.

Commenting on the signing of the agreement, Rosneft President Igor Sechin said: ‘We consider the acquisition of TNK-BP to be strategically attractive for Rosneft shareholders. As a result of this agreement, Rosneft will be able to fully consolidate the acquired business and benefit from a considerable synergy effect. Agreements reached today enable us to start preparing the integration process immediately’.

Viktor Vekselberg, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Renova Group, said: ‘As a result of this deal Rosneft acquires not only top-quality oil and gas assets. It also acquires unique corporate culture and production experience that have been accumulated during almost a decade of the Russian-British joint venture and that will help the biggest Russian oil company become the indisputable world leader’.

German Khan, member of the Supervisory Board of Alfa Group and Executive Director of TNK-BP commented: ‘This is the first time the transaction of such a scale is taking place in Russia, and the mere fact of concluding this transaction boosts Russian economy potential and reflects Russia’s leading role on the global oil and gas industry’’.
