Hydraulic Machines in IPO

Hydraulic Machines & Systems plans to raise as much as $652 million in an initial public offering in London as it seeks to expand and repay debt, the company said Tuesday in a regulatory filing.

The indicative price range is $9.25 to $12 a Global Depositary Receipt. That implies a post-IPO market value of $1.12 billion to $1.45 billion.

The company could raise $502 million to $652 million, including an over-allotment option, and will use the proceeds to pay about 4.4 billion rubles ($150 million) of debt.

The sale could take place Feb. 7. JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Renaissance Capital are managing the sale.
