According Reuters, Russian oil company Russneft is to hold an extraordinary meeting of shareholders on November 17 at which it will end the mandate of the current board and elect new board members, the company said on September 26, 2017, in a regulatory filing.
Russneft is part of a group of companies controlled by Mikhail Gutseriev and members of his family.
A bank owned by the group, BinBank, is being bailed out by the Russian central bank.
The decision to shake up the board came as Mikhail Shishkhanov, Gutseriev's nephew, sold out from the Safmar group, an holding company for business interests ranging from oil, including Russneft, and coal to financial services.
Shishkhanov is a Russneft board member, the company is chaired by Mikhail Gutseriev.
A Russneft spokeswoman declined to comment.
