Rocket Internet's Delivery Hero's initial public offering is taking shape: The company announced Monday it expects to offer shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on June 30.
"The price range for its planned initial public offering [is] at €22 - €25.50 (approximately $24- 29) per share," a press release says.
The best case scenario for Delivery Hero would bring in €927 million, with 18,950,000 new registered shares added to the 15 million shares already among existing shareholders. If shares fall in the middle range, the company could make around €450 million.
Rocket Internet, which owns 35 per cent of the company's shares, stands to benefit greatly from the IPO.
Since founding in 2011, Delivery Hero received over €1.75 billion from investors. In 2016 sales amounted to €297 million, but the company saw an overall loss of €202 million.
“The expected launch of our IPO is an important and exciting next step for us. We will continue our successful journey as a listed company and will seek to further expand our global leadership position in the online food ordering and delivery market," Niklas Östberg, Delivery Hero's CEO, is quoted as saying.
