OMV, the leading energy group in the European growth belt herewith announces that OMV and the Turkish company Dogan Holding have today terminated negotiations regarding a potential acquisition of Dogan Holding´s shares in Petrol Ofisi.

Both partners have stated from the beginning that a continuation of the existing partnership may also be a possible outcome of the negotiations (see to the EANS ad hoc announcement dated August 5, 2009). Both companies now agreed to continue their stable partnership in Petrol Ofisi.
