PhosAgro Owners Revealed

Troika Dialog, one of the organizers of a forthcoming initial public offering for PhosAgro, valued the fertilizer producer at $6 billion to $8.6 billion prior to the offering.

Troika Dialog said in its June 15 analytical note that Andrei Guryev, Federation Council member for the Murmansk region, controlled 81 percent of Phos-Agro and Vladimir Litvinenko, rector of the St. Petersburg State Mining Institute, was the second biggest shareholder with 10 percent.

PhosAgro disclosed its shareholders to some extent in a share prospectus in the past. It said Litvinenko had owned preferred shares representing 5 percent of issued shares since 2007.


… 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.
