Aston Martin is planning to go public as soon as possible, and it can happen already next year. If that happens, Aston Martin will be listed in London and not in New York. It seems like Aston Martin is following Ferrari`s success.
Ferrari went public in 2015 and the stock is up over 60 percent since then. Aston Martin is a luxury brand just like Ferrari and they have both similar vehicles and price strategy. An initial public offering can be very profitable for Aston Martin.
Aston Martin is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers. The brand was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. Their sport cars are regarded as a British cultural icon.
Aston Martin is associated with expensive grand touring cars in the 1950s and 1960s, and with the fictional character James Bond following his use of a DBS model in the 1964 film Goldfinger. Aston Martin has held a Royal Warrent as purveyor of motor cars to HRH the Prince of Wales since 1982.
Aston Martin`s valuation could be similar to Ferrari which is about $2,3 billion pounds. The company has 1,850 employees and a revenue of £593,5 million last year.
The company said a new factory in Wales will produce a sport utility vehicle which is called DBX, and that will be a «practical and family friendly» vehicle and not a luxurious and fast one. They will also expand with a push into yachts, apartments and handbags.
Aston Martin`s fourth-quarter results jumped and they shipped 155,000-pound DB11 models. The firm said they expects a full-year EBITDA to increase to 165 million pounds which is a great jump from 101 million pounds last year.
The main shareholders are Investindustrial (37,5% stake), with Kuwaiti companies Investment Dar and Adeem Investment Co.
