In order to expand RusForest AB’s (publ) (“RusForest” or the “Company”) operations in the Arkhangelsk region, the Board of Directors has entered into a sale and purchase agreement with the shareholders of Clonri Holding Limited and Piatkowski Holdings Limited, which together with subsidiaries comprise the Nord Timber Group (“NTG”), regarding the purchase of shares in and receivables from NTG against payment in the form of newly issued shares in RusForest. The total consideration amounts to 29 437 529 RusForest shares. The acquisition is conditioned upon, inter alia, the extraordinary shareholders’ meeting on 15 April 2011 approving the proposed increase of the share capital thresholds in RusForest’s articles of association, and on the Board of Directors resolving in accordance with its authorization to issue the consideration shares.

The Company controls long term forest leases with an annual allowable cut of approximately 2 million m3, and utilizes these resources to produce a wide range of sawnwood products. Eastern Siberia is renowned for its Pine and Larch of exceptional quality, while the Arkhangelsk Region in northwest Russia has high quality spruce and pine forests similar to those found in northern Sweden.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
