RTI Buying NVision Group

Services conglomerate Sistema said Tuesday that its high-tech arm RTI would buy systems integrator NVision Group for more than $200 million in cash and shares as part of a drive to grow its IT business.

The deal aims to integrate the assets of NVision, one of Russia's top 10 IT companies, with those of RTI, which include RTI Systems and Sitronics.

Under the deal, RTI would buy 50 percent of NVision's shares for $200 million and then issue additional shares to swap them for the remaining 50 percent stake. Sistema owns 84.6 percent of RTI, and Bank of Moscow, now part of VTB, controls the remaining 15.4 percent stake.


… 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.
