Tatneft announces the sale of its tire business.
On 13 May 2022 announced that PJSC Tatneft signed an agreement to sell the tire business of Tatneft Group to AO Tatneftekhiminvest-holding, which is not a member of Tatneft Group.

Considering significant changes in the economic environment, including those caused by geopolitical processes, the sale of the tire business would allow Tatneft Group to focus on its key strategic projects.
The cooperation of Tatneft with the tire business companies in Russia, including with respect to the supply of feedstock, will continue on a commercial basis taking into consideration any commitments assumed by the Company previously.
The transaction to sell the tire business does not lead to any changes in personnel, decrease of social or any other obligations with respect to the tire business' employees.
