Among those conditions precedent was that the shareholders of Inversora and Central Dock Sud did not exercise their preferential purchase right that YPF Luz and Pan American Sur have now decided to exercise.
Consequently, in the next few days the parties must sign the corresponding agreements to later transfer the shares, in order to perfect the transaction, under the same conditions and price agreed upon by Central Puerto.
