The parties remain confident of the merits of the conciliation agreement that was previously approved by the Procuraduria General de la Nación.
All the Frontera subsidiaries involved in those proceedings are also parties to the agreement, and references to Frontera include such subsidiaries. The terms of the Conciliation Agreement remain the same as previously announced by the company on 17 November 2020.
