Neste’s minority owned Nynas AB has filed for company reorganisation


Nynas AB, where Neste is a minority-owner with a 49.99% ownership, has filed for company reorganisation on 13 December 2019. With this action Nynas’ Board of Directors is aiming to find a long-term solution to secure the operations of Nynas. The company’s operations have been severely impacted this year by the sanctions imposed on the majority-owner, Venezuela’s state-run PdVSA. 

“Neste is a minority shareholder at Nynas. Together with other shareholders, we have tried to find a long-term solution from the moment the sanctions started affecting the company. We are still trying to find that solution, not least for the people working at Nynas,” Neste’s Chief Financial Officer, Jyrki Mäki-Kala says.

“Neste has written off 100% both our shareholder loan for Nynas as well as the balance sheet value. Together these total approximately EUR 180 million, equal to around 1.9 billion SEK. Unfortunately due to the company reorganisation process, we cannot disclose what kind of measures are currently being undertaken,” Mäki-Kala continues.
