(The author is a Reuters Breakingviews columnist. The opinions expressed are her own.) By Dasha Afanasieva LONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters Breakingviews) - Sistema wants to put a value on resilient companies such as online retailer Ozon and wood pulp maker Segezha. That’s logical: the $2.7 bln group trades at a hefty discount to its investments. But its oligarch owner, poor governance and sanctions noise are lasting burdens. Full view will be published shortly. On Twitter https://twitter.com/dasha_reuters CONTEXT NEWS - Russian conglomerate Sistema on Sept. 2 said it was raising 16.9 billion roubles ($220 million) from the sale of its remaining 20% of shares in Russia’s biggest toy retailer Detsky Mir. - Global retail giant Amazon.com and Japanese SoftBank Group have made approaches to Russian conglomerate Sistema about a possible acquisition of its online retailer Ozon, Sistema’s majority owner Vladimir Yevtushenkov said on June 27. - Sistema has been planning initial public offerings for some of its assets, including Ozon, wood and pulp maker Segezha and agriculture business Steppe. - A report by a group of U.S. Republican legislators in June called for Yevtushenkov to be sanctioned as part of proposals to extend sanctions against “Russian propaganda chiefs and Russian proxies in other countries acting on (President Vladimir) Putin’s behalf”. - A spokesman for Sistema and Yevtushenkov declined to comment on the report. - For previous columns by the author, Reuters customers can click on AFANA/ - SIGN UP FOR BREAKINGVIEWS EMAIL ALERTS http://bit.ly/BVsubscribe <^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Sistema, Russia-China fund raise $281 mln from sale of toy retailer urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2FZ0XI Sistema statement https://sistema.com/press/pressreleases/sistema-and-russia-china-investment-fund-successfully-price-offering-of-184-750-001-detsky-mir-share Amazon, SoftBank held talks over Russian online retailer Ozon, shareholder says urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2E4075 U.S. Republican report https://rsc-johnson.house.gov/sites/republicanstudycommittee.house.gov/files/%5BFINAL%5D%20NSTF%20Report.pdf BREAKINGVIEWS-Battle for Russia’s Amazon crown is heating up urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2DI1UP ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^> (Editing by Peter Thal Larsen and Karen Kwok) ((dasha.afanasieva@thomsonreuters.com; Reuters Messaging: dasha.afanasieva.thomsonreuters.com@reuters.net))
