CLERMONT-FERRAND, France (May 6)—Groupe Michelin now owns nearly 99 percent of the stock in its Stomil-Olzstyn S.A. subsidiary, having acquiring 28.5 percent of shares in the Polish tire maker that it did not already own. Michelin, through its Compagnie Financiere Michelin unit in Switzerland, paid $95.2 million ($12.32 per share) for the ownership stake. The positive response to the offer—which was about twice the value of a previous offer—should end hostilities between the French group and minority shareholders in Stomil-Olzstyn. Over the last three years, the Polish-based investors have accused Michelin of running Stomil-Olzstyn for its own benefit and at their expense. Michelin always has strongly denied these claims, which have involved several legal actions.
