YUKOS is unlikely to get compensation from Sibneft, if their merger fails, Prospect Investment analyst Vladislav Tropko told RBC commenting on the decision of the board of directors of YUKOS to negotiate compensation with Sibneft.
Currently YUKOS is not in the position to demand compensation from Sibneft. Moreover, Sibneft, having a blocking stake in the united company, might hinder its activities considerably.
