The most important entities of the chemical segment in 2011 were ANWIL (Poland) and Spolana (Czech Republic). In order to optimise core business in the third quarter of 2011 the Company started the process of divestment of shares in ZUP Eko-dróg held by ANWIL, which will be continued in 2012. Also in 2011 the Company initiated the process of sale of 100% shares of Spolana, which ultimately was not completed due to lack of satisfactory bids.
