Statement Regarding Okean Shipyard


Referring to the official report of the Prosecutor General's Office, earlier today some media outlets disseminated information about the attachment of the integral property complex (package of assets) of Nikolaev Okean Shipbuilding Plant (hereinafter referred to as Okean Shipyard). At the same time, some of the media mistakenly indicated that the ultimate beneficiary of this company was Vadym Novynskyi, a shareholder of Smart-Holding investment group. This information is not true and requires retraction.

Smart-Holding repeatedly stated that neither the company itself nor its beneficiary has any relation to this shipbuilding company. Meanwhile, it is known from open sources that in December 2018 the integrated property package of Okean Shipyard was sold at an open auction. The buyer was LLC Trade House Annona (Nikolaev), which does not have any links to Smart-Holding investment group.

We kindly ask journalists to avoid publishing incorrect information. We are open to cooperation and are ready to promptly respond to any of your inquiries.
