There is a finalization of the merger of PKN Orlen and Lotos
On August 1, an entry appeared in the National Court Register on the merger of PKN Orlen and Lotos.
Thus, Lotos and Orlen are now officially one company. The merger was carried out by transferring all the assets of Lotos Group to Orlen. At the same time, the share capital was increased through the issuance of merger shares. At the time of the acquisition, Lotos shareholders acquired new shares in the increased share capital of Orlen Group. As a result, they became shareholders of that company.
