Mechel Picks Banks for IPO

LONDON — Mechel picked JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and UBS to manage the initial public offering of its mining unit, said two people familiar with the process.

The listing, which may generate $1.5 billion to $2 billion for Mechel, could occur as soon as this year in London or Hong Kong, said one of the people. Mechel may sell 10 percent to 15 percent of the unit in the offering, the people said.

Mechel, chaired by Russian billionaire Igor Zyuzin, also produces steel, ferroalloys and power. The mining unit, known as Mechel Mining, generated about a third of Mechel's almost $10 billion in sales last year and three-quarters of its total profit.


… 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.
