PhosAgro IPO Yields $538M

PhosAgro, Europe's largest phosphate-fertilizer maker, raised $538 million in an initial public offering after selling shares at the bottom of a narrowed price band.

Shareholders sold Global Depositary Receipts at $14 apiece, valuing the Moscow-based company at $5.2 billion, PhosAgro said Wednesday in a statement.

PhosAgro had originally sought to raise as much as $1 billion in the sale, CEO Maxim Volkov said last month.

The order book was "significantly" oversubscribed and allocation was spread evenly between U.S., European and Russian investors, said Dmitry Sredin, managing director of Renaissance Group.

… 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.
