Deal protects plant against politically motivated damage.

Pegas Nonwovens has entered into an insurance contract with the Export Guarantee and Insurance Corporation for the coverage of risks connected with its investment in Egypt. The insurance contract includes insurance of the investment against the risk of prevention of the transfer of returns, expropriation or politically motivated violent damage.
