Rīgas kuģu būvētava
Company Announcement



On July 25th 2013, on behalf of the Association of Lithuanian investors released notice to mass media that “Lithuanian investors inquired to buy shares from JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava” where incorrect claimed, that Vasilijs Meļņiks is owner of the control package of shares, no evidence which can support this statement, in mentioned notice can’t be found. In addition on behalf of Association Vytauta Plunksnisa speculating of closed joint-stock companies “Remars Rīga” control package of shares, which belongs to Vasilij Meļņik, making the wrong conclusion, that Vasilij Melnik is the owner of control package of shares. About authors lack of knowledge shows, that in notice said that “In addition 0.23% JSC ”Rīgas kuģu būvētava” share owner is wife I.Meļņika who is wife of V.Meļņiks.

About V. Plunksnisa fib is considered statement, that JSC” Rīgas kuģu būvētava”shares are owned by individual members of the board of JSC „Remars-Rīga” and thereby apparently related group of people control more than 50% of company’s voting rights.

It’s curious, that with confusing requirements and statements about JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava” shareholder’s relations to the mass media turns Lithuanian Association of Investors, which have nothing to do with JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava”. No one investor in Lithuania never participating in meetings. Draw attention also to the fact that Lithuanian Association of investors refers to unnamed members of Association, who allegedly complain to the Lithuanian Association of investors about Latvian enterprise.

We consider notice of the Lithuanian Association of investors, about individual persons (minority of shareholders) attempt to commit unlawful pressure on the JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava” shareholders in order to compel them to sell shares or impact on the stock value, which is clearly seen in observing the dynamics of stock trading.

Voiced unsubstantial claims undermine JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava”, as public joint-stock company, which may affect successful entrepreneurship of JSC “Rīgas kuģu būvētava”, because of that we will be forced to turn to law enforcement authorities.

We ask to the Latvian mass media not to publish unchecked and false information and to defend the interests of the Latvian economy.
