Istanbul: Turkish low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines will sell a 34.5 per cent stake at an initial public offering (IPO) this week, the Istanbul-based company said in a stock-exchange filing.

Of that, 10 per cent will be allocated to domestic individual investors, 10 per cent to qualified investors, 10 per cent to domestic institutional investors and 70 per cent to foreign institutional investors, according to the filing.

Pegasus set the price range at 17 to 20.40 lira ($9.50-$11.40), sources told Reuters on April 2, signalling a market value of about 1.7-2.1 billion lira ($970 mln-$1.2 bln).

The airline said in March the offering, managed by Barclays and Is Yatirim, would help fund its expansion, increasing its capital to 102 million lira from 75 million.
