Russian operator MegFon began trading today on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) ahead of its listing on December 3, 2012. The firm raised £1.1bn ($1.7bn) in its IPO, the largest new capital raised by a telecommunications company in London since Orange in 2001, according to the LSE.
The offering also brings the total amount of capital raised by Russian new issues on the LSE to £5.1bn this year.
