Ardagh Group Seeks IPO

Ardagh Group S.A. is likely to proceed with stock market launch in the second half of 2015. Ardagh shelved plans to float on Wall Street in 2011, citing market volatility. However, Ardagh said on May 27, 2014 that, following a review of its funding options, it would be in the group's best interests to proceed with plans for an initial public offering (IPO) of its shares in the second half of 2015. Ardagh Group is not likely to determine how much it will raise from its planned IPO until nearer the flotation date.
