Rusagro GDRs Priced Low

Sugar and pork producer Rusagro priced its London initial public offering at $15 per Global Depositary Receipt, toward the low end of an indicative range, it said Friday.

The price implies gross proceeds of $330 million, including $30 million worth of shares to be sold by majority shareholder Shiny Property. The company had set the price range for the London placement at $14.50 to $18.25 per GDR.

Rusagro, which is issuing new shares to fund expanding production and potential acquisitions, said the share offer would value the firm at $1.8 billion and give a market free float of 18.3 percent of its shares. The offering also includes a so-called greenshoe over-allotment option of a further 3 million GDRs. If the option is exercised, the free float will reach 20.8 percent.
