'Improve On Previous Benchmark'

Chief financial officer of the company, Svetlana Demyashkevich, commented, “We managed to improve on our previous benchmark for the coupon rate and put option terms, which were achieved during our last placement in May.

“We thank our investors and the arrangers for participating in the issue."

The offering was arranged by BCS Global Markets, Gazprombank, Credit Bank of Moscow, Raiffeisenbank, Sberbank CIB and Sovcombank, with Raiffeisenbank acting as the placement agent.
