In 2012, MegaFon conducted an initial public offering (IPO) on the Moscow Exchange and the London Stock Exchange. As part of this public offering, the Company established its Global Depositary Receipt (GDR) programme under which MegaFon’s ordinary shares may be converted into an equal number of GDRs, with each GDR representing an interest in one ordinary share. Holders of GDRs have essentially the same rights as holders of ordinary shares in terms of participation in general shareholders meetings and receipt of dividends in accordance with the applicable laws of the Russian Federation.
As at 31 December 2016, MegaFon’s major shareholders were the USM Group of companies (56.32% interest) and TeliaCompany Group (25.17% interest). The holdings of the major shareholders of MegaFon have not changed during the reporting period.
As at 31 December 2016, the percentage of MegaFon’s ordinary shares and GDRs in free float was 14.59%, as in the previous year. In 2016, the percentage of ordinary shares in free float increased 2.2%. As a result of the volatility of the RUB/US$ exchange rate during 2016 and because of the fact that MegaFon pays dividends on ordinary shares in roubles, investors have become increasingly interested in holding the Company’s ordinary shares.
