Initial public offering was oversubscribed, well above the 4.88 million shares initially offered.
French farming group AgroGeneration, a grain and oilseed producer in Ukraine, raised $16.3 million from the sale of a 16.4 percent stake in an initial public offering on the NYSE Alternative Exchange Paris, investment bank BG Capital reported in a note to investors on July 21.
Last year, AgroGeneration floated a 25 percent stake in Paris in a $17 million private placement. Both new and old shares were assimilated and admitted to trading on July 20. The company operates six farms covering 50,000 hectares in Ukraine.
Investment Capital Ukraine, a Kyiv-based investment bank, said the offering was 43 percent oversubscribed, well-above the 4.88 million shares initially offered.
AgroGeneration farmed almost 40,000 hectares in the 2009/2010 marketing year and harvested 120,000 tons of grains, primarily wheat, corn and barely, as well as rapeseed and sunflower. The company plans to expand its land bank to 100,000 hectares by the end of 2012.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
