By 1997, UNEXIM gained control of the company Norilsk after the Russian government failed to return a loan that UNEXIM auctioned. This auctioning of loans was what came to be the ‘loans for shares’ program that led to Prokhorov gaining his title of an oligarch, giving him and a few others control over the Russian economy.
However, this didn’t last long, and in 1998, the government defaulted the entire loan. By 2000, UNEXIM also saw its end when it was merged with another bank.
However, Norilsk came under the directorship of Prokhorov in 2001, whom he made the largest producer of nickel and palladium in his tenure. However, he stepped down in 2007, and it was speculated that it was in relation to the prostitution scandal he wrapped himself into.
He was given a clean verdict by the court, though. In 2011, he turned himself to politics when he took up the role of the leader in the liberal Right Cause party in Russia. Then, he proceeded to run for the position of the president against the new Prime Minister and former president Vladimir Putin.
As of 2018, he made it to the headlines when he sold 49% of his stakes to Joseph Tsai, a Taiwanese Canadian businessman, from the team he owned, Brooklyn Nets. This very business later gained all the remaining shares from Prokhorov, making him the team’s former owner.
