The majority shareholders of "Metafrax" waive the dividends

Seifeddin Rustamov, the beneficial owner of PJSC "Metafrax", intends to refuse the dividends payment for 2019. It is planned that financial resources will be used to support the existing production and personnel of enterprises as well as investment projects for the construction of new industrial complexes and units that are currently being implemented.

- The situation of the global market of methanol and its derivatives is currently negative. The consumption volume is decreasing and product prices are falling. We are aware of our responsibility to our partners, employees and society; therefore, in difficult times of crisis, we focus on ensuring the business continuity and ensuring stability for our employees. In this regard, I have made a decision to suggest that the shareholders of "Metafrax" waive the payment of dividends for 2019 and suspend the development of investment projects that have not yet begun. Work on projects that are under implementation will continue, - Seifeddin Rustamov stated.

- The management team of "Metafrax" welcomes the responsible decision made by the beneficial owner. For our part, we have assured all suppliers of raw materials that the raw material component of the company's costs is not reduced. We intend to negotiate with banks in regards to reducing credit interest rates. Together with our partners - producers of methanol, we address the federal authorities with a request for state support measures. We also plan to bring a proposal to the Governor of the Perm region in regards to changing the terms of special investment contracts and providing possible support at the regional level, - said Armen Garslyan, Chairman of the company's Board of Directors.

"Metafrax Group" actively cooperates with the government of Perm Krai on the issues of ensuring sanitary and epidemiological welfare of the population in relation to the COVID-19 epidemic and participates in issue resolution for reduction of coronavirus infection impact for the population in general as well as for the most vulnerable business sectors such as small and medium businesses.

Summary of the 1st selection stage for free education of pupils from Kizel coil basin territory in “Skolkovo”

Within the framework of stage it was necessary to write an essay “Who from entrepreneurs inspires me?”. Competition jury received 60 works for review from pupils of Gubakha, Kizel and Gremyachinsk. 33 persons passed in the 2nd stage. Competition jury evaluated the essay structure, argument presence, attention of authors and the topic coverage.  

The jury member, Deputy General Director for strategic development and investment project evaluation  of Metadynea company Levon Garslyan highlighted the importance that Russian entrepreneurs such as Oleg Tinkov, Pavel Durov and Tatyana Bakalchuk became leaders in selection of topics for essays: «Generally, I liked that the children indicated two important aspects in their works: necessity of hard work to be a successful entrepreneur and that entrepreneurs is a rare class of people ready to risk.  For me it’s a very conscious approach, considering that the age of authors doesn’t exceed 14-17 years. I ask the children to keep these two aspects in mind independently from competition results”.    

According to PJSC Metafrax advisor for Chairman of the Board Mariya Konovalova, the big importance has the geography of essay authors: “It’s important that to be candidates to win a grant from Metafrax for education in “Skolkovo” could pupils not only from Gubakha, but also from Kizel and Gremyachinsk. I’ll reveal a secret that participants from all three towns will be present in the next stage”.

"Metafrax Group" plans further production development of flame retardants in the Austrian Krems

At the production site of the "Metadynea" company in the city of Krems (Austria) a meeting was held for the business review and further development issues of the industrial park. Armen Garslyan, Chairman of the Metafrax Board of Directors, inspected the existing units and held a discussion with Ralf Toyer, Managing Director of "Metadynea-Austria" regarding the prospects for new investment projects implementation.

During the work trip, a decision was made to expand the production of halogen-free flame retardants - the components added to materials of organic origin to provide fire protection. These products, unlike flame retardants containing chlorinated or brominated organic compounds, produce less smoke when a fire occurs and are classified as safe and environmentally friendly.

The preparation for implementation of this investment project is planned to be completed in 2020. Other ideas for the chemical services development at the territory of the "Metadynea" industrial park in Krems are also being considered.

In 2019, high-tech capacities for the production of carboxylic acids and aldehydes were created at the "Metadynea-Austria" production site and a plant with the capacity of 7,500 tons per year was built. Investments for the project reached 10 million euros. The implemented project increased the range of manufactured products and provided the company with an expanded market share.  10 new jobs were created additionally in order to operate the plant.

- Creation of new production facilities and expansion of the product line is of strategic importance for "Metafrax Group". It strengthens our position as the largest participant in the specialised market and ensures the economic development of our presence areas as well as the well-being of the residents, - Armen Garslyan noted.
