SUEK to Postpone IPO

Siberian Coal Energy Company, or SUEK, is likely to postpone its planned initial public offering in London for a second time, two people with knowledge of the sale said Tuesday.

A decision on the IPO is expected this month, the people said. SUEK planned to sell 10 percent to 15 percent of its shares in the second half, valuing the company at as much as $8 billion, Kommersant reported in March. It planned to sell shares last summer, and said in June that it would shelve the proposal because the market was too weak.

A delay in SUEK's IPO won't affect a March 22 deal between its main owners, billionaire Andrei Melnichenko and Sergei Popov, that gives Melnichenko more than 50 percent of the company and Popov less than 25 percent.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
