Aston Martin is planning to go public in London next year

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.

Ferrari IPO

Ferrari S.p.a is an Italian luxury sports car founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929. Ferrari road cars are generally seen as a symbol of speed, luxury and wealth. Fiat acquired 50% of the company in 1969, and expanded its stake to 85% in 2008. Earlier this year Fiat announced its intention to sell its share in Ferrari. Piero Ferrari have a 10% stake in the company, while Fiat Chrysler Automotives have 90%.

Ferrari is a strong brand, and the famous symbol of the Ferrari racing team is the Cavallino Rampante (prancing horse) black prancing stallion on a yellow shield, usually with the letters S F (Scuderia Ferrari), with three stripes of green, white and red (the Italian national colors at the top).

Ferrari sold 7,318 units in 2012. The sale dropped down to 6,922 last year, and the revenue was €2,3 billion in 2013. Up 5% from 2012. The company is struggling and in an U.S IPO they hope to raise at least $1 billion.

They struggle to compete with other automakers in Europe and the U.S, and the competition is tough. Tesla have great success with their new electric car with good comfort, technology and over 700 horsepower. Ferrari is also seen as a luxury car with a great vehicle (V8 and V12), but they are struggling. Why?

When you ask people about Ferrari, they think racing cars and especially Formula One, and that is probably an image problem. Formel One and Racing cars is not something for you and me. It`s something for Schumacher. Some people love Formel One and racing cars, but the market is unfortunately not big enough?

Ferrari F430 Spider runs on ethanol, and that hybrid will be in production next year. LaFerrari was put into production this summer. It`s called HY-KERS Concept, and the hybrid system adds more than 100 horsepower on top of the 599 Fiorano`s 612 HP.

The company has produced a number of concept cars such as Ferrari P4/5 and Ferrari SP12 EC, which have been commissioned by wealthy owners. Other quite radical cars is Ferrari Mythos and Ferrari Modulo, but the most recent concept car was produced in 2010, which is Ferrari Millechili.

The special projects program is a collaboration by Ferrari with Italian automobile coachbuilders such as Fioravanti, Pininfarina, and Zagato to build custom cars using selected Ferrari modes as a structural base. The first car under this program is the SP1, commissioned by a Japanese business executive. The second is the P540 Supersfast Aperta, commissioned by an American enthusiast.

Ferrari`s former CEO and Chairman Luca de Montezemolo, resigned from the company after 23 years, and is to be succeeded by Sergio Marchionne, CEO and Chairman of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ferrari`s parent company. Marchionne merged Fiat and Chrysler into the world`s seventh-largest carmaker to better compete with leaders such as General Motors, Volkswagen AG and Toyota Motor Corp.

On 29 October 2014, the FCA group, resulting from the merger between manufacturers Fiat and Chrysler, announced the split of its luxury brand, Ferrari. The aim is to turn Ferrari into an independent brand which 10% of stake will be sold in an IPO next year.

Fiat Chrysler`s brands include Jeep, Fiat, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler and Dodge, which all strong brands. They sold about four million cars and trucks in 150 countries last year. Fiat Chrysler declared bankruptcy right after the financial crises in 2009.

Marchionne want to raise cash to cover its expenses and said that the company will spend money on R&D and capital expenditures. The stock rose after the IPO news and Marchionne has stated that he want to increase production to 10,000 cars a year. That`s music in investors ears.

Fiat is putting its jewel on the market.
