She pointed out that according to the Commercial Law, if the shareholders have more than 5% of the share capital, then they have the right to request to convene an extraordinary shareholders’ meeting. “We together with [Valērija Maligina vidējo meitu] Niku [Saveļjevu] there is an appropriate number of shares, so we have the legal right to request that this extraordinary shareholders’ meeting be convened. According to the law, the Board has three months to convene a shareholders’ meeting. If they do not do it, then the state or the Register of Enterprises will do it instead of the board, “Baldere-Sildedze pointed out.

We discussed it with the board and there will be no such initiative, because the board has a quorum and a quorum. The quorum is enough for three people and there are currently four on the board. Rebenox. At the same time, he expressed the view that the heirs should initially enter into an agreement on the division of the inheritance, as this is now a set, each of which owns a third of the notional shares and not specific shares.

Baldere-Sildedze, on the other hand, said that the agreement should be concluded on movable and immovable property left in the inheritance, but the shares have already been divided. “The shares have already been distributed. I do not understand how the chairman of the council allows to deal with inheritance issues that are not within his competence as an official,” Baldere-Sildedze said, adding that this is not a topical issue and does not affect Olainfarm’s operations in any way. “This is a matter of private relations between the heirs and does not apply to Olainfarm, as the shares are already divided separately,” Baldere-Sildedze emphasized.

Inga Krūkle, a member of the board of Olainfarm, pointed out that Rebenoks, the chairman of the council of Olainfarm, is responsible for the issues of the extraordinary shareholders’ meeting, explaining that “this is how they decided to divide responsibilities in communication and it is not unusual”.

Deer reminds Dortikos not to forget to take the belt of the world champion to the fight

In the second season of WBSS, the fight in Riga will be the final in the last of the three weight categories of the season. The press conference took place two months before the final fight scheduled for “Arena Riga”.

“Briedis and Dortikoss are currently the two best boxers in the weight category, two-time world champions. And on March 21 there will be a fight for the most valuable prize at the moment – the cup named after Muhammad Ali. Latvia will be proud that such a fight has taken place in Riga,” The importance of the match was highlighted by superseries promouters Kalle Zauerlands.

“Already last year, we saw in the WBSS finals two historical fights that our children will talk about, several generations. Weighing up to 53.5 kilograms, the final in Tokyo in November 2019 between Japan’s Naoju Inoui and Filipino Nonito Donajri was definitely the best fight in the world last year and is “The O2 Arena in London, which weighed up to 63.5 kilograms with 19,000 seats a month before, did not disappoint viewers,” said Sauerland.

He promised on March 21 a war, not a fight, expressed hope that the tickets, which will officially start selling on Wednesday, will be sold, if not in a few hours, then in days, and shared the memories that once he arrived in Riga, he mentioned that he wanted to change the place. on Las Vegas in Europe.

The Cuban boxer was a little sleepy after arriving in Riga on January 21, because the time zone difference between Miami and the United States, from where the Cuban started his trip, is seven hours.

“First of all, thank you for the opportunity to be here. Thank you to everyone who helped me get here. Since the previous fight in Riga (June WBSS semifinals with American Andrew Tabiti), I feel at home here. The fight will not be easy. Come to it and you will receive a gift,” the Cuban, who is called the Slaughtered Doctor, hinted at another slaughter.

“I will have the honor of fighting for the prize named after Muhammad Ali and taking it home after I have killed Briedi,” the Cuban boxer had no doubt of his victory in the upcoming match.

“I think it will be a good fight, because the opponent is strong,” said Briedis about the final, who noted that after leaving the police he can concentrate on boxing 100%, as well as emphasized the excellent weather conditions in Riga, which allows to prepare for the fight on the spot. including fresh air.

“I hope that the opponent is not a balamute,” Briedis hinted at yesterday’s statements that the Cuban will knock out the Latvian boxers in the final, continuing with humor. “A strong team helps to prepare. It is important for me that the fight will take place in Riga. It both imposes an additional burden of responsibility on the shoulders and gives additional motivation. so that the Cuban does not forget to grab his world champion belt. “

“It will be a big holiday for the fans, but for us it is hard work. Whoever has done his homework better will also win,” Briedis did not take to predict the outcome of the fight.

He mentioned that every fight is important, but this will be one of the most important in his boxing career. The betting odds will be the world champion belt in the International Boxing Federation (IBF) version, as well as the prize named after Muhammad Ali. So “it would be foolish to prepare for a frivolous fight.”

In case one of the two boxers will not be able to take part in the March 21st fight, the WBSS has spare options: “We have spare boxers. When three fights have to be completed in a limited time and the athletes are close to their maximum capacity not only in fights but also in training, no injuries. Also during the first WBSS season, all four semi-finalists were injured. “

Two months later, Mairis Briedis from Latvia and Juniels Dortikoss, a Cuban living in Miami, took part in a press conference in honor of the WBSS finals two months later at Arena Riga, which are currently considered to be the best boxers in the world or the first heavyweight (up to 90.7 kilograms) , Raimonds Zeps and Luis Fonseka, respectively, and WBSS promouters Kalle Zauerlands.
