“Olainfarm” formulates its opinion about voluntary buyout offer

Today, on July 21, 2011, Management Board of AS “Olainfarm” has agreed that the voluntary buyout offer made by Valerijs Maligins meets all the requirements of the respective legislative acts. At the same time the Board wants to emphasize that the price offered reflects neither the current market price of Olainfarm's shares nor company's future development potential. However, because of the limited liquidity, the Board assumes that the offer might be taken by holders of larger blocks of shares, especially if such blocks have been purchased for a price significantly lower than the current buyout offer price. Valerijs Maligins himself, who is a Chairman of Olainfarm's Board, abstained from voting on Boards opinion about the voluntary buyout.
