(Reuters) – Airtel Africa Ltd <IPO-AIRTA.L>, a unit of India’s Bharti Airtel Ltd <BRTI.NS>, on Monday set a price range of 80 to 100 pence per share for its planned initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange.

The IPO is expected to raise 595 million pounds from the issuance of about 595.2 million to 744 million new shares.

The company said the price range values it between 3.01 billion pounds and 3.62 billion pounds at the price range.
