OJSC Mostotrest has completed the placement of its newly issued ordinary shares in accordance with the Resolution of the Board of Directors dated 8 September 2010. The international offering coupled with the subscription for Mostotrest’s newly issued shares generated total gross proceeds of approximately USD 405 million.

Under its new share issue programme, Mostotrest placed 33,975,500 ordinary shares worth a total of approximately USD 212.3 million, of which approximately USD 195.1 million came from Marc O’Polo Investments Ltd., which acted as the selling shareholder under Mostotrest’s international offering, and approximately USD 17.2 million – from Mostotrest’s minority shareholders who exercised their preemptive rights.
