In October, the largest transaction of the last two years took place in the industry — the purchase of Kismet Capital Group Ivan Tavrin 100% in JSC "First Tower Company", which owns more than 17 thousand cell towers in Russia, from the operator MegaFon.

According to the results of the period, construction and development fell to the fourth place with 20 transactions totaling $770.3 million — this is 3.5 times higher than the result of October 2020. By the number of transactions, the industry occupies 55.6%, by volume — 7.3% of the market. The largest transaction of the reporting period was the acquisition by the PIK Group structure of 100% of Promising Investments LLC, which owns a 19-hectare plot on an Open highway in the Metro Area, next to the Losiny Ostrov National Park, for an estimated $198.5 million.
