Potash producer Israel Chemicals files for US listing

Israel Chemicals Ltd, a Tel Aviv-based maker of fertilizer and specialty chemicals, filed with US regulators to list on the New York Stock Exchange.
ICL set a nominal fundraising target of about $522.4 million through an initial public offering of 62 million ordinary shares, it said in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Morgan Stanley and Barclays are the lead underwriters for the IPO, the company said.
ICL is a subsidiary of Israel Corp and the second largest company on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange by market value.
The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its first IPO filings is used to calculate registration fees. The final size of the IPO could be different.
