Abbot Reportedly Mulls IPO In 2015

Pamplona Capital Management LLP has held talks with advisers about an initial public offering (IPO) of KCA Deutag Drilling Ltd., two people with knowledge of the matter said. Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman’s Alfa Group, has discussed an IPO of the company in London during the first half of next year, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. “The Board of KCA Deutag regularly reviews its various financing strategies as part of the ordinary course of business,” a spokeswoman for the company said in an e-mailed statement. “One of a range of possible options for the company could be a stock market flotation at some point in the future. However, no decision has been made on conducting an IPO at the present time. The business continues to make good progress.”
