Poland's state treasury will increase its stake in fuel giant PKN Orlen from 27.52% to 50%, State Assets Minister Jacek Sasin said on Wednesday, giving details of planned mega-merger that will create a giant Polish multi-energy provider.
Orlen is set to take over Poland's state-owned gas firm PGNiG and fuel firm Lotos.
Sasin said the consolidation would help the Polish economy to return to a path of rapid growth, reported the Polish Radio.
The merger of PKN Orlen and PGNiG will result in the emergence of Central and Eastern Europe's (CEE) largest multi-energy provider, a senior executive said last year.
