Volkswagen, advanced negotiations to list Porsche on the stock exchange

The landing of Posche on the stock exchange is fast approaching. It is not the first time that she talks about it but it seems that it is the right time. In fact, the Volkswagen Group and Porsche Automobil Holding have announced that they are in advanced negotiations to get Porsche Ag listed on the stock exchange through an IPO or “initial public offering”. From what is known, the parties have negotiated a framework agreement which will serve as a basis for initiating this operation.

A final decision however, it has not yet been taken because the last word will lie with the board of directors of the Volkswagen Group and Porsche Automobil Holding. In any case, it seems that there are no major obstacles to this financial operation. The Porsche holding also added that if it goes to listing on the stock exchange it could buy ordinary shares of Porsche Ag. In short, the listing in Porsche on the stock exchange seems very close.

A large-scale financial operation given that a company that would be valued between 45 and 90 billion euros will arrive on the stock market. As we said at the beginning, it is not the first time that we talk about this possibility even if, later, denials had always arrived in the past.

But why list Porsche on the stock exchange? The reason is quickly explained. The Volkswagen Group aims to find new funds to support his electrification project. A plan which, as we know, is particularly onerous. At this point all that remains is to wait for some official communication from the Volkswagen Group on this financial operation.
