The two companies' boards of directors approved the deal at their meetings on December 22.
On December 21, UralChem expressed its interest in purchasing a controlling stake in Perm Mineral Fertilizers. It estimated the enterprise at roughly $550 million but was ready to raise the price of its offer by 5%-10%.
