27th April 2009 | 0 Comments

On Friday 24 April Amtel-Vredestein OJSC’s shareholders recommended that managers enter the Russian part of the wider Amtel-Vredestein company into bankruptcy proceedings. At this stage the proposal remains a suggestion and it is expected to be weeks before the company makes a final decision on whether or not to enter bankruptcy protection. Tyres & Accessories contacted various Amtel-Vredestein OJSC company representatives, but none were willing to comment on the likelihood of Amtel-Vredestein OJSC declaring bankruptcy or what the effects would be on the company.
