MTS Bank announced IPO in push for development

Tuesday 16 April 2024 10:07 CET | News

Russia-based MTS Bank has announced that it will hold an Initial Public Offering (IPO), aiming to accelerate its development and growth process. 

Following this announcement, this initiative will enable MTS Bank to be the second Russian financial institution to hold an Initial Public Offering, following Sovcombank's IPO in 2023, since the West imposed sweeping sanctions on the region on Moscow.

In addition, in early April 2024, the Russian Central Bank reportedly registered an additional issue of 7.187 million MTS Bank ordinary shares with an overall value of approximately USD 5 (RUB 500) each. That represented up to 19.3% of the financial institution’s increased authorised capital.
