Sberbank's Bourse Share Up

Sberbank could get a stake of 11 to 12 percent in the united stock exchange after an expected merger between MICEX and RTS is completed, the bank's deputy chief executive said Thursday.

"Troika Dialog could increase our stake by 3 to 4 percent," Bella Zlatkis said, referring to the brokerage Sberbank bought this year. "Maybe together it [Sberbank's stake] will be 11 to 12 percent," she said.
