Aston Martin intends to submit an initial public offering (IPO) later this year, targeting an estimated $ 6.8 billion, the Bloomberg News reports citing anonymous sources
. According to these sources, the British builder had preliminary discussions with the consultants about an evaluation of the company, including its debts. Aston Martin's future plans, which include SUVs, starting with DBX, have investors interested in looking for an IPO this year. The car intends to enter the booming segment in 2019.
With regard to sales, Aston is approaching a strong year, surpassing the 5,000 mark for the first time since 2008. Most sales came from the V12 from DB11, but the recent launch of the new Vantage and the future DBX crossover will certainly give the brand a serious boost.
Things are still in the air, though the car could go in another direction. When the press agency asked Aston Martin for a comment, the carmaker was not involved: "From a policy point of view, Aston Martin does not comment on speculation about the future of property or capital restructuring."
Well, the floating of some action worked great for Ferrari and FCA, so we can not see any reason why Aston would not go on the same route if they decide to raise some extra capital.
