Schaeffler To Reportedly List

Schaeffler AG is considering a listing in what could be a multibillion-euro stock offering, Wall Street Journal reported citing people familiar with the situation. Though Schaeffler AG's owners Maria-Elisabeth Schaeffler-Thumann and her son Georg Schaeffler are yet to give the green light to an initial public offering, floating a minority stake in Schaeffler AG is a likely option, the people said. Schaeffler AG is yet to mandate investment banks to pursue the initial public offering. A Schaeffler AG spokesman declined to comment.
