NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Warsaw office of Greenberg Traurig LLP represented Barclays Capital, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley and Ipopema S.A in the US$640 million initial public offering of Alior Bank S.A., which began trading today on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. It closed on Dec. 12, 2012.

This was Greenberg Traurig's second IPO representation in Poland during 2012, Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp.k., recently represented ZE PAK in its IPO of October 2012, also listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

The Alior IPO consisted of a local and international offering of 12,332,965 primary shares and 24,480,000 shares sold by existing shareholders controlled by Carlo Tassara, the Italian company with holdings in various industries. The shares were sold to retail and institutional investors in Poland and to institutional investors outside of Poland, including several US "qualified institutional buyers" on a Rule 144A basis.

The Greenberg Traurig team was led by Warsaw Partners Ireneusz Matusielanski and Federico Salinas, supported by Senior Associate Pawel Piotrowski, Associates Dorota Jenerowicz, Nick Quarrie (London) and Lukasz Karasek.

Jaroslaw Grzesiak, the Managing Partner of the Warsaw office, commented:  "We are proud to have represented the joint global coordinators in this transaction.
