RusAl Did Not Receive Offer

United Company RusAl said Monday that it has not received an official offer from Norilsk Nickel to buy back a 15 percent stake held by the world's largest aluminum producer in the nickel producer.

Norilsk's offer valued its shares at $306 apiece, a 20 percent premium, Moscow-based Norilsk said Aug. 19.

RusAl, which holds 25 percent of Norilsk, has rejected three offers since October 2010 to sell its holding, as billionaires Vladimir Potanin and Oleg Deripaska battle to control the world's largest nickel producer. RusAl shares have declined 36 percent so far this year in Hong Kong.


… 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.
