TMK Completed a Deal with VTB Bank
PAO TMK (“TMK” or “the Company”), one of the world’s leading producers of tubular products for the oil and gas industry, on December 29, 2015, completed a deal with VTB Bank to raise around RUB 10 billion by selling its shares. Part of the shares will be delivered in the course of 2016.
TMK has a right to buy the shares back.
