Glencore PLC (GLEN.LN) will convert its shareholding in Russian aluminum company UC Rusal into shares of its major shareholder, En+ Group, following its initial public offering on the London and Moscow stock exchanges.
Commodities company Glencore has an 8.8% shareholding in UC Rusal, which will be converted into global depositary receipts representing En+ shares, after their IPO. En+ has previously announced its intention to list on the London and Moscow markets in November, raising up to $1.50 billion.

Shares in Glencore closed down 1.2 pence at 374.65 pence on Wednesday.
