Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A. Key Developments

Valentino Not Planning To List In 2016

Stefano Sassi, Chief Executive Officer of Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A. ruled out a bourse listing for the fashion house this year and cast doubts on the possibility of a market debut in 2017. "There is no floating at the moment, this is not the right year, it's too early," he said on the margins of a conference in Milan. Sassi said the designer still planned to list but, when asked about the possibility of an initial public offering in 2017, he said "who knows".

Valentino Considering IPO

Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A. is considering selling shares in an initial public offering (IPO) as early as 2017. "An IPO is still a project and could happen in 2017", Stefano Sassisaid, Chief Executive Officer of Valentino, said.

Banks Reportedly Line Up To Advise Qatar On Valentino Share Offer

Valentino Fashion Group S.p.A. reportedly seeks listing. The Qatari owners of Valentino Fashion Group have invited banks to pitch for the advisory roles on a stock market listing as they seek an exit from Valentino Fashion Group, sources familiar with the plan said. A decision on which bank will work on an initial public offering (IPO) in Milan is expected in January, 2016, the sources said. Mayhoola for Investments has asked Rothschild Inc. to involve a number of banks in the listing, which could happen as soon as May, 2016, the sources said. Gianni Versace S.p.A., backed by The Blackstone Group International Limited likely to go down the same IPO route in around 18 months, several sources familiar with the matter said. Valentino Fashion Group’s timetable will largely depend on market conditions, another source said, but Mayhoola for Investments will try to take advantage of the first available window in the second or third quarter of 2016. The sources ruled out Gianni Versace jumping the queue on an IPO before Valentino Fashion Group returns to the Milan market next year. The sources said the Milan bourse remains the main marketplace for fashion firms and ruled out Mayhoola for Investments seeking a listing for Valentino Fashion Group in New York or in Hong Kong. Valentino Fashion Group and Rothschild declined to comment. No one at Mayhoola for Investments was immediately available to comment. Gianni Versace and The Blackstone Group International declined to comment.
