Rosneft-Armenia Artur Alaverdyan signed a contract for oil- products deliveries to Armenia within the framework of the joint venture, - L.L.C. Rosneft-Armenia - created on the 10th of December 2013 between Rosneft and its Armenian partner Oil Techno.

With the purpose of further deepening presence in the marketing value chain the companies started studying acquisition of assets in the sphere of wholesale and retail trade of oil-products, including oil-product storage capacities and an aircraft refueling business.

Mikhail Baghdasarov founded Mika Limited CJSC in 2001, as well as Hadrout Winnert SCJSC, and Mika- Karabakh CJSC jewelry production. Mika Armenia Trading Affiliated Company LLC acquired 100% stake in Armavia LLC and ArmSavingsbank's shares.
