  • DME accusations raise spectre of Yukos

    Top News | 30 July 2011

    A Russian government body has suggested that criminal offences were committed at Domodedovo Airport, owned by IPO candidate DME, casting a shadow over the Russian IPO market going forward. The Kremlin’s investigative committee is studying security arrangements at Moscow’s third-largest airport following a terrorist attack earlier this year that killed at least 35 people.

  • BofA Merrill changes strategy to win Polish deals

    People & Markets | 06 August 2011

    Since late last year, the Polish treasury ministry has only been awarding mandates to banks that have significant operations in the country – considerably reducing the competition for places on the country’s mammoth privatisation programme. But now banks like JP Morgan, UBS and Credit Suisse, who have benefited from the restrictions, face the prospect of competing with one of their old rivals.

    PKO blow points to Poland freeze

    Top News | 26 August 2011

    This time last year, when Europe was in crisis mode, the Polish equity capital market chugged merrily on oblivious to the turmoil around it, with the tricky privatisation IPO of Tauron followed by the roaring success of the Warsaw Stock Exchange flotation. This year, the eurozone is in even worse trouble, Russia has already had a dreadful year in ECM and now it looks like the Polish market is not immune to disappointment.

  • All eyes on follow-ons to kickstart Russian pipeline

    Equities | 02 September 2011

    Follow-on deals are likely to open the Russian ECM market in the second half of 2011, bankers working in the region have said.

  • Poland awaits eurozone resolution

    Equities | 16 September 2011

    The Polish privatisation programme is on hold until there is a resolution over the Greek debt problem and stability returns to the markets, the country’s Treasury Minister said.

    People & Markets | 23 September 2011

    Poland has begun to woo companies in central and eastern Europe as it seeks to get ambitions for its equity capital markets industry back on track, after momentum in the first half of the year subsequently ran out of steam.

  • Long and sweet

    Equities | 23 September 2011

    The Polish government is to privatise a major chunk of the country’s main sugar producer Krojowej Spolki Cukrowej in a Z1.25bn (US$380m) IPO that was launched last week. The timing seems surprising as most issuers are holding back from launching into such a volatile market, but this is unlike any other deal.

  • Deripaska gets creative

    Structured Equity | 30 September 2011

    In a difficult IPO market, it is worth sounding out different deal structures and creative ways of raising money that might have otherwise been raised in a float. Oleg Deripaska is doing just that with EN+, the company in which the billionaire oligarch holds his metals and energy assets.

    The announcement of the merger of Greece’s Alpha Bank and EFG Eurobank was hailed by the market on the day with both stocks rising 30%. But since those highs, the share prices of both banks have fallen drastically, making the subsequent €1.25bn rights issue more an
