Industrialen Holding-Doverie is offering to pay 0.65 levs ($0.38/0.33 euro) apiece for the 9.95% stake it wants to acquire, according to previously disclosed data.

The FSC temporarily banned the previous bid on December 7, requesting from Industrialen Holding-Doverie to fix the fair value of a share in Maritzatex.

The shares' fair value is calculated at 0.15 levs in the revised offer, down from 0.65 levs in Industrialen Holding-Doverie's previous bid.

The bidder intends to delist Maritzatex from the Bulgarian Stock Exchange.

Until suspending its core activities in 2010, Maritzatex was a textile producer, specialised in yarn, cotton and cotton-type fabric and knitwear. The company recorded a net loss of 259,000 levs for 2020, according to its last annual financial report.

Industrialen Holding-Doverie is part of local group Doverie-United Holding.
