Glencore chief executive says IPO "imminent"-paper

 LONDON, April 10 (Reuters) - The chief executive of
Glencore [GLEN.UL], Ivan Glasenberg, was quoted as saying on
Sunday that the launch of an initial public offering by the
commodities giant was "imminent".
 In an interview with the Financial Times, Glasenberg said
the $10 billion listing -- which could be the largest to date
in London and one of the largest in Europe -- would give the
company the firepower it needs.
 "We will get firepower and we can buy assets when
opportunities present themselves in areas and sizes that we
could not do before," Glasenberg said.
 Glencore has kept its plans under wraps since briefing
analysts more than a month ago.
