Rasperia Trading, a subsidiary of Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska conglomerate Basic Element has increased its shareholding in Strabag from 19.4% to 25% plus one share.

The 6.38 million shares were bought at € 19.25 each for a total of € 123 million from Strabag’s core shareholders, the Haselsteiner family, Raiffeisen bank and the UNIQUA insurance group.

The deal, by way of a call option that Basic Element has on the shares, takes its interest in Strabag back to the level it was at in early 2009. May 2009 saw Basic Element sell its shareholding to the Haselsteiner family and Raiffeisen to service debt elsewhere in the business.

Following the deal, the Haselsteiner family holds 25.5% of Strabag, Raiffeisen and UNIQA hold 26.5% and Rasperia Trading holds 25% plus one share. Some 13% of the company is traded as free float and it holds 10% of its own capital.
