Kesko confirms it is negotiating the disposal of most of its building and home improvement store properties in Russia with Leroy Merlin.
The negotiations are in progress and for the present, the outcome of the negotiations is not certain. If the negotiations lead to signing an agreement, it will be announced separately. If the negotiations do not lead to an agreement, Kesko will continue its building and home improvement trade operations in Russia as before.
