Sberbank CIB estimates the company is worth 98-118 billion rubles, while Credit Suisse’s (CSGN.S) valuation is 50-108 billion rubles, the sources said.

Two other deal bookrunners, Morgan Stanley (MS.N) and UBS (UBSG.S), did not provide valuation in their analytical reports, the sources said.

Detsky Mir, controlled by the Sistema (AFKS.MM) (SSAq.L) conglomerate, announced intention to list shares in Moscow on Monday. Goldman Sachs (GS.N) is also a bookrunner.
