However, Alum Tulcea is 99.4% owned by Romanian integrated aluminium company Alro. At the Annual General Meeting (AGM), Alum Tulcea, the sole shareholder, decided to divest by selling a certain number of shares, constituting the entire share capital of Global Aluminium Ltd BVI. The mandate was given to the Company's Board of Directors to negotiate and finalize the price and terms of the transaction.

Earlier, it was disclosed by the company that an unsolicited proposal had been received from a local investor in Sierra Leone. The offer pertained to acquiring the entire share capital of Sierra Mineral Holdings 1 Ltd ("SMHL"), a registered entity in the British Virgin Islands. Alum SA wholly owns SMHL through Global Aluminium Limited, also registered in the British Virgin Islands. SMHL operates the group's bauxite mines located in Sierra Leone.
