Uralkali Does $1Bln Buyback

Potash producer Uralkali bought back the majority of its debut exchange bond issue on Monday, the company said in a statement.

The company said the price of the buyback was about 30.9 billion rubles ($1.06 billion), which is 103 percent of the nominal value. VTB Capital was the buyback agent. Uralkali placed the issue in February. The first coupon rate was set at 8.25 percent.

The funds raised from the issue were used to finance the acquisition of a 20 percent stake in rival Silvinit to facilitate the merger of the companies.


… 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.
