  • Advising Etalon Group PLC on its secondary public offering of ordinary shares, including in the form of global depositary receipts (GDRs) listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Moscow Exchange. The offering consisted of an offering of rights to subscribe for new ordinary shares, including in the form of GDRs, to existing holders of the company’s equity securities, followed by a marketed offering to institutional investors of ordinary shares not taken up during the rights offering in the form of GDRs.
