The companies KMG International NV and CEFC China Energy Company Limited have signed an agreement subject to conditions precedent having as part of their scope the purchase of the Dyneff Group in view of their European expansion project. This agreement shall become effective upon the fulfillment of conditions precedent and shall come into force by the end of the year.
This acquisition stands as a confirmation of CEFC’s European level development and expansion project within which Dyneff represents a genuine strategic pathway and a direct access route towards new markets. This acquisition also seals the first partnership between these two energy sector giants, and it announces the beginning of a long-term cooperation on wide ranging projects between China and Kazakhstan.
For Dyneff, this new shareholding structure strengthens and favours substantial financial support which shall allow the company to embark upon future developments, including its current project of activity diversification within the natural gas segment. Dyneff obtained in July 2015 its authorization as a natural gas supplier in France for natural persons and professionals. Dyneff has thus evolved from its capacity of oil product distributor to that of energy supplier in a broader sense. Through its two shareholders, Dyneff shall benefit not only from a doubled synergy but also from increased access to supply sources.
The company KMG International N.V., as holder, since 2009, of 100% of the French-Spanish subsidiary Dyneff, has signed an agreement whereby it transfers 51% of its shares to CEFC China Energy Company Limited.

In 2014, the company ranked within the top 500 most important global capitalized companies and among the 500 most influential brands at world level having a turnover exceeding 30.5 billion Euros.
KMG International NV is part of KazMunayGas, the third largest crude oil producer in Kazakhstan, being a company actively involved in the exploration, production, refining and transportation of gas and hydrocarbons. KMG International, which shall continue to hold a 49% interest, has more than 7000 employees in 12 countries and is active in the Caspian Sea region (Kazakhstan, Georgia), in the Black Sea area (Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Romania) and in Western Europe (France, Spain).
With an experience of more than 60 years, Dyneff is the largest company in the Roussillon region and one of the most important companies of Southern France.
