Information related to the published response of the supervisory board of LUKA KOPER, d.d. to the letter of SDH, d.d. as of 5 January 2017
Pursuant to the Rules and Regulations of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange and the relevant legislation, the company LUKA KOPER, d.d. hereby publishes the following information:
On 24 February 2017, LUKA KOPER, d.d. published on the website of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange the Response of the Supervisory Board of the Company LUKA KOPER, d.d. to the Letter of the Slovenian Sovereign Holding (SDH) dated 5 January 2017. In the response regarding the consequences of the spontaneous work stoppage occurred in the Port of Koper in July 2016 it was stated, among others, that until the day the information was published, LUKA KOPER, d.d. received only a few letters anticipating some minor claims for damages which were unspecific, without grounds and without evidence. LUKA KOPER, d.d. replied to those letters by providing all required argumentation and no further replies or claims for damages were received by the Company.
In relation to the publication stated above, we hereby inform the interested public that on 6 June 2017, LUKA KOPER, d.d. received a reply of SŽ Tovorni promet dated 1 June 2017 to the letter of LUKA KOPER, d.d. as of 29 September 2016. After eight months, SŽ – Tovorni promet determines that the grounds on which LUKA KOPER, d.d. rejected the claim of SŽ – Tovorni promet dated 15 September 2016, are unjustified and therefore, SŽ – Tovorni promet again requests the compensation for damages in the amount of EUR 1,774,504.00. The claim of SŽ – Tovorni promet was rejected by LUKA KOPER, d.d. in September last year as the claim did not state the relevant contractual basis, the allegations stated in it were made on flat-rate basis and could not be verified, and no proofs demonstrating loss were attached to it. For the same reasons, LUKA KOPER, d.d. rejected also the claims stated in the letter of SŽ – Tovorni promet as of 1 June 2017.
LUKA KOPER, d.d. did not create any contingent liabilities or provisions for this purpose, as it was also stated in the Annual Report of the LUKA KOPER, d.d. and the LUKA KOPER GROUP for 2016 that was audited by an external audit company.
