Carey Olsen advises Raven Russia on dual listing

Posted: 08/07/2016

Carey Olsen has advised property investment company Raven Russia on the creation and listing of convertible preference shares on the Channel Islands Securities Exchange (CISE). The fundraising, originally targeting a minimum of £105.5 million, has raised £108.7 million.

The company has ordinary shares, preference shares and warrants listed on the London Stock Exchange, which all became dual listed on the CISE in May. 

This further listing, of convertible redeemable preference shares, is listed solely on the CISE and traded on the SETSqx platform – the Stock Exchange Electronic Trading Service of the LSE, which trades in small-cap, less liquid securities.

The Carey Olsen team included Partner Ben Morgan and Senior Associate John Scanlan, who advised on the Guernsey aspects of the listing alongside UK counsel Berwin Leighton Paisner.

Ben Morgan said: "Generally Chapter 8 of the Exchange’s listing rules is used for debt securities issued by special purpose vehicles rather than listing convertible preference shares in an operating company. These types of listings are unusual and have their own complexities."
