Pursuant to the company's report, Kernel has not been involved in grain marketing operations in Russia since 2017, assigning its transshipment quota in the Taman terminal to a third party.

Note: in September 2012, Kernel and Glencore acquired 100% of the shares in the deepwater grain terminal in Taman port from the EFKO Group (mayonnaise and Sloboda sunflower oil producer). At the time of the transaction, the terminal value was estimated at USD 265 mln, pursuant to the Kernel report. In 2018, Kernel assigned its transshipment quota in the Taman facility to the 3rd party.
