BCS Global Markets advises on pioneering bond issue on Moscow Exchange’s Growth Sector

BCS Global Markets has recently advised Obuv Rossii, Ltd. on the placement of its Rb 1.5bn 3-year exchange bond – the pilot bond issue on the Moscow Exchange’s new trading segment for midcaps, the Growth Sector.

Requirements for inclusion on the Growth Sector are set out in the latest version of the listing rules that come into force on 24th July 2017 which provide that a security can be included on the Growth Sector if the issuer has operated for more than one year and that the previous year’s revenue did not exceed Rb10bn.

The new initiative has received support from various bodies, including the Industry Development Fund, the Russian Direct Investment Fund, SME Corporation and the Russian Export Centre. Those bodies who have joined in support have done so in order to ensure that the project centres on collaboration and education.

Said Roman Lokhov, CEO of BCS Global Markets: We are delighted to have been involved in this pioneering placement on the Moscow Exchange’s Growth Sector. At BCS Global Markets, we believe that this new initiative has transformative potential, encouraging development of the midcap sector and attracting new names and investment into capital markets.
