For the Record

Gazprom-controlled electricity distributors OGK-2 and larger OGK-6 reported a similar 2.2 billion ruble ($78 million) 2010 net profit, as Gazprom plans to merge them by the end of the year and sell part of the combined company via an initial public offering.

Tele2 has been awarded four new 2G licenses in the Russian Far East and is in the running for two groups of five or six more licenses, chief executive Mats Granryd said Tuesday, adding that the company might consider joining the Yota joint venture set up by other Russian operators.
