MOSCOW Jan 29 Billionaires Zelimkhan Mutsoyev
and Gavriil Yushvayev have been shortlisted as possible buyers
of a 38 percent stake in Russia's largest gold miner, Polyus
Gold International Ltd, three sources familiar with the
matter said on Tuesday.
Tycoon-turned-politician Mikhail Prokhorov is looking to
sell his $4 billion stake in London-listed Polyus, and a
proposed deal is now being reviewed by the U.K. Takeover Panel.
At issue is whether the buyers are acting independently, or
whether they form a so-called "concert party" with Suleiman
Kerimov, who owns 40 percent of Polyus. In the latter case, a
deal would trigger a mandatory offer to buy out minorities.
