The signed Document will form the basis for the Minister of State Assets to submit a motion to the Council of Ministers for the acquisition of EW shares and EEP shares by the State Treasury.
Based on the provisions of the Document, the Parties will agree on a draft preliminary purchase agreement and a draft final purchase agreement. The transaction will be carried out only if the State Treasury successfully concludes negotiations with all of the following companies: ENEA S.A., TAURON Polska Energia S.A., PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. and Energa S.A.
