URALCHEM and the Ziedot.lv Fund combine to help seriously ill children in Latvia

URALCHEM and the fund of Ziedot.lv, have agreed to work together to help seriously ill children who need specific treatment or rehabilitation using leading Russian clinics.

Riga, Latvia - October 3, 2012URALCHEM and a leading charitable organization of Latvia, the fund of Ziedot.lv, have agreed to work together to help seriously ill children who need specific treatment or rehabilitation using leading Russian clinics. URALCHEM will provide funding for the hospitalization and treatment of children to the amount of 80 thousand Euros. A corresponding agreement has been signed today by URALCHEM CEO Dmitry Konyaev and Manager of the Fund Ziedot.lv Ruta Dimanta.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM, OJSC:

"Since 2009, URALCHEM has been implementing a large-scale logistics project involving the creation of a terminal for transhipment of mineral fertilizers in the Latvian port of Riga. Traditionally, in all regions where URALCHEM does business, we pursue a socially responsible policy, which aims to address the socio-economic problems of the people of these regions. One of the priorities of our policy has always been to help children. In a joint program with Ziedot.lv we will help families of different nationalities living in Latvia who need financial and medical assistance."

Ruta Dimanta, Head of the Fund Ziedot.lv:

"The programme will help seriously ill children who need treatment in Russian clinics, and whose families are not able to cover all the costs. URALCHEM's support is particularly important because the treatment of Latvian residents outside the European Union is not funded by the state. In practice, in cases with rare or complex diseases, it is necessary to seek help outside Latvia. Children deserve to have the highest level of treatment based on modern scientific developments."

The agreement stipulates that, within a specially designed charity programme - "Help for seriously ill children", 20 children from Latvia will be treated in leading medical institutions in Russia during the coming year. The programme participants are selected by the fund Ziedot.lv on the basis of doctor's recommendations and requests from parents for financial assistance. Assistance is needed in the treatment of diseases such as autism, vision recovery, cerebral palsy and developmental delay.

With this initiative by URALCHEM, Latvian children will now be able to access world leading medical treatment not only within the EU but in Russia as well.

Vietnam's First Luxury Tour and Travel Operator To Attend WTM London 2012

Vietnam-based Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) will join the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) in October to promote luxury travel products at World Travel Market London 2012 (WTM) in the UK from November 5 to 8. Stand AS480

Hanoi, Vietnam, October 03, 2012 -- Vietnam-based Luxury Travel will join the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) in October to promote luxury travel products at World Travel Market London 2012 (WTM) in the UK from November 5 to 8. Stand AS480

According to Pham Ha, founder of Luxury Travel, the UK has been a great market for the company, which has appealing products for Britons' tastes and preferences.

"We target the right clients with personalized products and services." said Ha.

He also noted that the company had increased the number of private small groups that it served, primarily with tailor-made holidays.

"British holidaymakers like custom and private tours, not big groups. The boom in demand suggests that holidaymakers are becoming increasingly canny and watching exchange rates as well as seeking out keenly-priced packages before deciding on their destination." he said.

Britain's tourists, according to Ha, picked Vietnam for their vacations for safety, affordable prices, authenticity, warm weather, and convenient direct flights.

Vietnam Airlines introduced service between Gatwick and Hanoi in December 2011, becoming the first direct flights to the country from Britain, and reducing the journey by several hours.

"With our marketing efforts and commitments, we will attract more British travelers who wish to experience Vietnam in style and luxury, and we'll encourage them stay longer. Typical stays are 10 or 14 days, and in 5-star hotels." he said.

Another reason for the sharp increase in Britons taking holidays in Vietnam is the recent opening of new holiday resorts in the Southeast Asian nation. The past few years have seen the completion of many luxurious resorts with names such as Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa, Intercontinental Peninsula Danang Sun Spa and Six Senses Con Dao, entering the market and offering more choices for travelers.

"With our representative office in London for the UK and Ireland markets, we are targeting double digit growth in this market for 2013." said Ha.

Luxury Travel is a long established Asian specialist in luxury privately guided and fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam and the Indochinese Peninsula. Vietnam now has world class hotels and resorts, beaches and cuisine, in addition to its natural beauty, rich history and traditional culture. The country receives 100,000 British tourists yearly, and the number of tourists increases an average of 68 percent annually.

Britons traveling to Vietnam are looking for a more authentic experience and seek to have a deeper understanding of the country's culture, food, history and everyday life. While Thailand is geared more toward mass market tourism, Vietnam is a destination that is attractive to a more selective class of travelers.

Luxury Travel Ltd.'s booking record indicates that British travelers prefer Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, the former imperial capital Hue and Hoi An Ancient Town.

They also want to visit Halong Bay, the Mekong Delta and Sapa, Mui Ne, Con Dao and the Phu Quoc Islands, while many also combine Vietnam and Cambodia or Myanmar in one trip.

Vietnam's first luxury tour operator/DMC (http://www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is based in Hanoi, with offices throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Luxury Travel is exceptional at designing tailor-made tours and providing unique travel experiences. Opened in 2004, the Luxury Travel Company Limited has its own offices, luxury vehicles, luxury travel advisors, and representative offices in California, London,Paris, and Sydney. The company's depth of experience and large infrastructure enable it to create unique itineraries with the operational confidence to fulfill client expectations. Luxury Travel Ltd. has won numerous travel awards for excellent performance including the most recent Guide Award in 2012. Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/luxurytravelcompany

Energy-Efficient Donations help Fort Myers Homeless Organization save on its Electric Bill

Businesses and organizations looking to better manage their energy use and save on their monthly bills can take FPL's free Business Energy Evaluation.

Juno Beach, FL (October 3, 2012) -- Today, Florida Power & Light Company and local contractors led an effort to benefit a nonprofit organization that helps those in need every day. Fort Myers-based Community Cooperative Ministries Incorporated (CCMI) received a free energy makeover from FPL, which will help the organization save at least $3,000 a year in electricity costs.

Incorporated in 1984, the CCMI is dedicated to ending hunger in Lee County by providing nutritious meals, groceries, quality early childhood education, social services, case management and referral to the homeless, homebound, seniors, working poor, children and the frail in our community. The agency provides more than 14,000 meals each month through their Everyday Café & Marketplace and Home Delivered Meals programs. CCMI also educates 40 children in its Community Montessori, offers homeless and comprehensive case management services through its United Way Resource House, oversees an emergency mobile food pantry and supplies weekend backpacks full of food to more than 2,500 children each school year.

"We are so appreciative and thankful to FPL and its partners for their generosity and hard work in making our organization more energy-efficient," said Tracey Galloway, CEO of Community Cooperative Ministries Incorporated. "It feels good to know that there are companies out there that take an active role helping those in need in our community. The money we save on our electric bill will help us to provide more comprehensive services to the homeless in our community."

FPL and local contractors added film to all windows to save energy by reducing solar heat gain in summer and retaining heat in winter. Other upgrades included the installation of energy-efficient lighting and the addition of new freezer curtain strips in the organization’s large walk-in freezer to keep chilled air inside and energy bills even lower.

"We are very grateful for the CCMI’s important role in the community," said FPL Community Relations Specialist, Tim Moore. "We're happy that we are able to give back to such an integral organization in our neighborhood. This makeover has allowed us to give the CCMI a long-term return on the investments we make here today at no charge to them. FPL customers have the lowest electric bills in the state, and these upgrades will help them continue to save and further help others who need assistance."

Most of the energy efficiency upgrades that were completed today can be adopted by any business customer looking to make smarter energy choices. Businesses and organizations looking to better manage their energy use and save on their monthly bills can take FPL's free Business Energy Evaluation.

EUROTOAZ LIMITED welcomes the Russian legal system's protection of the interests of foreign shareholders

The Supreme Commercial Court of Russia confirmed the theft of 4,257,936 ordinary shares in the world's largest ammonia producer, Togliattiazot, from EUROTOAZ LIMITED. This is 10% of the share capital of Togliattiazot, with a value of $100 million.

Dublin, October 3, 2012 -- EUROTOAZ LIMITED has received the text of the Resolution of the Presidium of the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation, confirming the theft of 4,257,936 ordinary shares in the world's largest ammonia producer, the Russian company Togliattiazot. The shares stolen from EUROTOAZ LIMITED are equivalent to 10% of the share capital of Togliattiazot, with a value of approximately $100 million in today's prices.

The Court found that the exclusion of EUROTOAZ LIMITED from the register of Togliattiazot shareholders was not a technical or typographic error, but a result of intentional misconduct on the part of Togliattiazot and its former registrar, CJSC FIC "TOAZ-Invest". In accordance with the Russian law on joint stock companies, the issuer of shares and its registrar bear joint responsibility for the correctness and accuracy of the register of shareholders. Therefore, any change of entries in the shareholders register appears to be possible only through coordinated actions by the issuer and the registrar.

However, as the shares were misappropriated more than three years ago, it is not possible under Russian legislation for the commercial court to order the return of the shares to their rightful owners. Therefore, despite the readiness of Togliattiazot's new registrar (Joint Stock Company "VTB Registrar") to return the equity, EUROTOAZ LIMITED has accepted that it has almost no realistic chance of recovering the stolen shares.

Nevertheless, by confirming the theft of the shares, the judgement of the Supreme Commercial Court allows EUROTOAZ LIMITED to claim for the appropriate compensation for damages and for those responsible for the theft to be brought to justice under the procedures of criminal law.

Already, a criminal investigation into the theft has been launched by the Russian authorities, within which EUROTOAZ LIMITED has been granted victim status.

EUROTOAZ LIMITED is confident that the Russian legal system will continue to protect the rights of legitimate businesses against unscrupulous activities of rogue individuals.


November 1995, EUROTOAZ LIMITED (Ireland) and EUROTOAZ (Hungary), a joint Russian-Hungarian company set up by Togliattiazot, signed a contract for the sale of 44,541 shares in Togliattiazot, which comprised 8.8% of the share capital. The transfer of the shares to EUROTOAZ LIMITED was duly processed and registered in the Russian Federation. Subsequently, issues of equity securities in Togliattiazot were consolidated. As a result EUROTOAZ LIMITED became the owner of 4,257,936 ordinary shares in Togliattiazot.

27 November 1995, Togliattiazot decided to liquidate EUROTOAZ (Hungary) through a merger with another company (ROMEX). The decision to merge was personally signed by the head of Togliattiazot, Vladimir Makhlay, in Budapest (Hungary) in the presence of a notary.

In 2010, representatives of EUROTOAZ LIMITED received a statement from the register of Togliattiazot shareholders concerning the disappearance of the shares that belonged to EUROTOAZ LIMITED. CJSC FIC "TOAZ-Invest", which used to be the registrar of Togliattiazot, was headed by E.A. Korolev, who is currently heading the management company of Togliattiazot, CJSC "Corporation Togliattiazot", which manages Togliattiazot. E.A. Korolev performs all his actions with the approval and guidance from Sergey Makhlay, chairman of the Board of Directors of Togliattiazot and son of Vladimir Makhlay.
