Considering the above, the Parties to the Agreement notice the need for co-ordination of co-operation in the planned process of the Coal assets spin-off and their integration within NABE. Under the Agreement, the Parties declare mutual exchange of necessary information, including organisational structures, processes and assumptions for the direction of the Transformation, handing over of which does not violate the law. The Agreement will allow for structured and efficient implementation of the process aimed at the set-up of NABE.
