Russia's PIK may raise up to $350 mln via share offering - sources
MOSCOW, April 19
MOSCOW, April 19 (Reuters) - PIK Group, one of Russia's largest homebuilders, may raise around $300-$350 million via an additional share offering next month depending on market conditions, said two sources familiar with the plans and one source close to a shareholder.
The company, in which Suleiman Kerimov's investment vehicle Nafta Moskva owns a 38.3 percent stake, may announce these plans after publishing its annual report later in April, one of the sources said.
Spokesmen for PIK and Nafta declined to comment. Nafta's spokesman has previously told Reuters that the company plans to buy shares during PIK's offering.
The new share sale is need to reduce PIK's debt which stood at 37.1 billion roubles ($1.2 billion) at the end of last year.
