MOSCOW, December 15, 7:23 /ITAR-TASS/. The Board of Directors of Russia’s major retail bank VTB 24 made a decision on Friday, December 13, to recommend an unplanned general meeting of shareholders to raise the charter capital by 74.394 billion roubles (over 2.263 billion U.S. dollars) through placement of additional ordinary shares, the bank says in a statement.
The bank plans to carry out private placement of 74.394 billion shares with a nominal cost of one rouble. The placement price is 2.69 roubles (USD 1 = RUB 32.87).
Shareholders will vote in absentia. Ballots will be accepted until January 17, 2014.
