Russia’s online insurer Renaissance Insurance has reportedly raised $250m through its initial public offering (IPO) on the Moscow stock exchange.

The online insurer sold nearly 162 million new shares at the lower end of its price range of $1.67 (RUB120) apiece, Bloomberg has reported.

The IPO values the insurer at around $944.4m (RUB66.8bn), which is lower than Renaissance had initially planned.

Renaissance Insurance will use the proceeds to fund organic growth, invest in digital technology, acquisitions and share repurchase.

Credit Suisse, JP Morgan and VTB Capital acted as the joint global coordinators and joint book-runners, the report added.

Other joint book-runners include BCS Global Markets, Renaissance Capital, Sberbank, Tinkoff, Sova Capital and Aton.
