LONDON (ICIS)--PKN Orlen wants to gather all preliminary offers for all or part of its polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and nitrogen fertilizer subsidiary Anwil by the end of this year, the Polish oil, chemicals and petrochemicals group said on Tuesday.
“Market research shows that there is more interest from potential buyers in the fertilizer unit. However, if during the sale process there are investors willing to buy both production parts… we will also consider it,” said Orlen spokeswoman Joanna Puskar.
Orlen said there had been a major improvement in the fortunes of Polish nitrogen fertilizer makers in the past year.
ZAP said it had not ruled out making another bid for all or part of Anwil.
