On April 28, 2023, CMS announced that PPD and INA’s sale of TMF – the largest shareholder of Croatian fertilizer company Petrokemija – to the Yildirim Group (reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 22, 2022), had closed.

As previously reported, Divjak Topic Bahtijarevic & Krka advised Prvo Plinarsko Drustvo and Tus & Grzic advised INA on the sale of their stakes in joint-venture company Terra Mineral Fertilizer. CMS advised the Yildirim Group on its acquisition.

According to DTB, TMF is the largest shareholder of the only Croatian fertilizer company, Petrokemija. “The majority stake in Petrokemija has been sold to Turkish conglomerate Yildirim Group, and the completion of the transaction is subject to customary approvals of regulators in several jurisdictions.”

Prvo Plinarsko Drustvo is a subsidiary of the Croatian private company ENNA. INA is a Croatian multinational oil company, with the Hungarian Mol Group and the Croatian government as its biggest shareholders.

PPD had initially acquired a stake in Petrokemija back in 2018 (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on November 1, 2018), together with INA, through their joint-venture company TMF.

The CMS team included Croatia-based Partner Marija Zrno Prosic, Attorney at Law Mario Vrdoljak, and Senior Associate Karmen Sinozic; Istanbul-based Partners Done Yalcin and Alaz Eker Undar and Associate Taner Elmas; and Austria-based Partner Dieter Zandler.

DTB’s team included Senior Partners Damir Topic and Mario Krka, Attorneys at Law Dina Salapic, Andrej Zmikic, and Ana-Marija Sunko, and Associates Lorena Micik and Andrija Duvnjak.

The Tus & Grzic team was led by Senior Partner Tomislav Tus.
