ZAGREB (Croatia), May 13 (SeeNews) - Shares in Croatian shipbuilding company Uljanik plummeted on Monday after a local court decided to open bankruptcy proceedings against Uljanik Shipyard, Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) data showed.
Uljanik's [ZSE:ULJN] shares fell 26.67% to a close of 0.55 kuna after trading in them resumed at midday on Monday following a suspension in the morning pending the decision of Pazin commercial court.
The court's decision grants a request of Croatia's financial agency FINA submitted in March that is seeking the shipyard's bankruptcy over an outstanding debt of 28.2 million kuna ($4.3 million/3.8 million euro). Also in March, prime minister Andrej Plenkovic said the government cannot endorse a proposed restructuring of Uljanik shipyard, as the operation would require a huge financial exposure by the state.
