Published: 19 Feb 18
Billionaires Oleg Deripaska and Vladimir Potanin’s working arrangement at MMC Norilsk Nickel is starting to fray, but the tycoons aren’t planning to trigger a so-called shoot out - a forced auction where the losing bidder must sell his stake to the winner, three people familiar with situation said.
