Globaltrans is interested in buying a stake in the soon-to-be-formed Russian Second Freight Company and may invest 25 billion roubles ($808.8 million), a source familiar with the firm’s plans told Reuters.

Globaltrans Investment, Russia’s largest private rail freight operator, does not exclude doing a secondary share placement or bond issuance in order to finance the acquisition, the source said on Thursday.

A source at Russian Railways confirmed that Globaltrans has applied to participate in the Second Freight Company. (Reuters)
