Μια νέα εποχή ξεκινά σήμερα για την Ferrari, με την Fiat Chrysler Automobiles ανακοινώνει πως οι μετοχές της Scuderia θα προσφέρονται πλέον σε δημόσια προσφορά. Είναι το πρώτο βήμα για την απόσχιση της Ferrari από τον όμιλο FCA, με το σχέδιο που έχει κατατεθεί στην Αμερικανική Επιτροπή Κεφαλαιαγοράς να δηλώνει πως το 9% των μετοχών της Ferrari (17.175.000 μετοχές) που θα βγούνε σε δημόσια προσφορά  θα κοστίζουν μεταξύ 48 και 52 δολαρίων, ενώ το υπόλοιπο 1% των μετοχών (1.717.150 μετοχές) θα προσφέρονται στους ασφαλιστές της δημόσιας προσφοράς. Αυτό σημαίνει πως η Ferrari αποτιμήθηκε στα 8,65 δισ ευρώ, με την μετοχή της να διαπραγματεύεται στο χρηματιστήριο της Νέας Υόρκης με το σύμβολο RACE.

Το 80% των μετοχών της Ferrari θα διανεμηθεί στους μετόχους της FCA, με το υπόλοιπο 10% να το κατέχει ο νόθος γιος του Enzo Ferrari, ο Piero Ferrari. Όπως ήδη έχει ανακοινωθεί, η Ferrari θα μετονομαστεί σε Ferrari NV, στο πλαίσιο της απόσχισης των επιχειρήσεών της από την μέχρι πρότινος μητρική της εταιρεία Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Τον περασμένο Ιούλιο, η FCA κατέθεσε στην Επιτροπή Κεφαλαιαγοράς την πρότασή της για την IPO της Ferrari δηλώνοντας ότι θα διαθέσει περίπου 10% των κοινών μετοχών της νέας οντότητας στο κοινό.

FCA Announces Launch of Ferrari Initial Public Offering

LONDON, October 12, 2015

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE: FCAU / MI: FCA) (“FCA”) and its subsidiary New Business Netherlands N.V. to be renamed Ferrari N.V. (“Ferrari”) announce today that Ferrari has launched its initial public offering (“IPO”).

FCA, currently holding a 90 percent of Ferrari’s issued and outstanding share capital, intends to sell 17,175,000 common shares of Ferrari, equal to approximately 9 percent of Ferrari’s common shares pursuant to a registration statement on Form F-1 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The initial public offering price is currently expected to be between $48 and $52 per share, and the shares will trade under the symbol, “RACE”. Ferrari has applied to list its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”)

FCA expects to grant the underwriters with an option to purchase an aggregate of up to 1,717,150 common shares of Ferrari from FCA, equal to approximately 1 percent of Ferrari’s outstanding common shares. After the IPO, FCA will own 80 percent of Ferrari (if underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full). Ferrari is not selling any shares and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of common shares by FCA. This offering is intended to be part of a series of transactions to separate Ferrari from FCA. Following completion of this offering, FCA expects to distribute its remaining 80 percent interest in Ferrari to FCA shareholders at the beginning of 2016.

UBS Investment Bank is acting as Global Coordinator for the offering. UBS Investment Bank and BofA Merrill Lynch are serving as bookrunners and representatives of the underwriters for the offering. Allen & Company LLC, Banco Santander, BNP Paribas, J.P. Morgan and Mediobanca are also acting as bookrunners for the offering.

A registration statement, including a prospectus, which is preliminary and subject to completion, relating to these securities has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time that the registration statement becomes effective, and, even then, the securities may only be sold pursuant to the registration statement and final prospectus. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
