PRAGUE (ICIS news)--Zaklady Chemiczne Police (ZChP) is “limping along” following the European Commission’s refusal to fast-track approval of a state aid loan worth zloty (Zl) 150m ($51.4m, €38.7m), a source at the Polish company said on Friday.
“They tell us this is a complicated case, that they have more questions and that the decision may now not be issued for another two months,” said a source with ZChP’s investor relations department.
The company, ?xml:namespace>
ARP fast-tracked approval of the loan late last year to assist ZChP with its ongoing battle for financial survival.
The company has been facing liquidity problems, which it said were greatly aggravated by the economic downturn, and difficulties in securing commercial bank loans.
ZChP is scheduled for privatisation this year.
