Scooter firm Whoosh does Russia's only IPO of 2022

STORY: Russia got its only IPO of the year this week. Wednesday (December 14) saw a market debut for e-scooter firm Whoosh.It was a big test of investor appetite in a country deprived of Western buyers. And the signs were mixed. Whoosh says it raised 2.1 billion roubles, or just over $33 million. That was less than half its original goal. The shares were priced at the lower end of their target range, and traded broadly flat on their first day. The company said the conflict in Ukraine and Russia’s mobilisation were hurdles the company overcame to make its debut. CFO Alexander Sinyavsky said the float had attracted investors big and small: “You see how the market is developing. It is hard to predict what will happen tomorrow in general. So our expectations are intuitive. So it is hard to say if it is more or less than expected. We are satisfied that we received almost 1 billion roubles in demand from retail investors. It is a big number nowadays.”Whoosh’s yellow and orange scooters are a common sight around Moscow, until snow forces a winter break. It plans to use the money to grow the size of its fleet, and expand into other regions. For now, its share sale has breathed some life into the Moscow stock exchange.But the modest scale of the IPO also hints at the challenges for a market starved of Western capital.

Analysis-Whoosh tests Russian IPO interest as foreign investors frozen out

  • Corporate Russia is watching closely this week as electric scooter firm Whoosh braves Russian economic isolation with Moscow's first IPO since the country sent troops into Ukraine. While breathing life into a moribund market, Whoosh's IPO could prove the exception as firms struggle to get close to valuations they once envisaged, bankers and strategists said. Whoosh on Monday more than halved the size of its initial public offering (IPO) to $36.5 million from an earlier $80 million target, saying shareholders would not now sell shares.
