Sibur board of directors gets 3 independent members
MOSCOW. April 29 (Interfax) - The shareholders of petrochemicals holding CJSC Sibur Holding voted in a new board of directors on Thursday, including three independent members.
A Sibur source told Interfax that Troika Dialog (RTS: TROY) chief Ruben Vardanyan was elected to the board as an independent. First Deputy General Director at CJSC Strategic Assets Arkady Samokhvalov and head of the fund EOS Russia Seppo Remes, both board independents themselves, were re-elected.
Leonid Mikhelson, who owns 50% of Sibur Holding, and two representatives of outfits in his CJSC Mirakl - company President Pavel Maly and General Director Oleg Golounin - were also elected.
Sibur President Dmitry Konov and Gazprom Neft (RTS: SIBN) President Alexander Dyukov retained their seats. Senior Acting Vice President at Sibur Vladimir Razumov was elected to the board as well.
Mikhelson, who is also CEO at independent gas-producer NOVATEK (RTS: NVTK), told Interfax that he had not initiated a change at the top of Sibur, and that Konov remains in his post at the holding.
The Sibur board of directors was reduced from twelve to nine seats. General Director at Mezhregiongaz LLC Kirill Seleznev was dismissed, as were Deputy Gazprom CEO Valery Golubev, Gazprombank representatives Sergei Grischenko, Alexei Matveyev, and Alexander Bakatin, Managing Director at the Sputnik group Dmitry Bakatin, General Director at Lider Anatoly Gavrilenko, and Gazfond President Yury Shamalov.
Mikhelson became a Sibur shareholder at the end of last year with the acquisition by a company of his of 25% in the holding from Gazprombank. Mikhelson increased his stake in the holding to 50% early this year and plans to increase it further to outright ownership. He has said that an IPO for Sibur is not out of the question. Sources have said that IPO might be forthcoming next year or the following year, but the company itself has not confirmed those reports.
