AS Baltika´s (registry code 10144415, address Veerenni 24, Tallinn, Estonia) subsidiary OÜ Baltika Retail (registry code 12014257) received on 11 March 2020 an application for claim from OÜ Aquabene (registry code 11220495) (“applicant”) to  acquire applicant´s property located at Viru county, Kohtla-Järve city, Ahtme district, Õpetajate tee 5 (immovable No 69207) (“property”).

OÜ Baltika Retail has sold the above referred property to the applicant under a contract of sale dated 4 March 2010.
