Tarkett's market listing seen before year-end: CFO
PARIS (Reuters) - French flooring maker Tarkett, which is 50 percent owned by U.S. private-equity firm KKR (KKR.N), may list on the Paris stock market before the end of the year, its chief financial officer said on Monday.
"I cannot give you a more precise timetable today, but this (the listing) may happen before the end of the year," Fabrice Barthelemy said during a conference call.
Tarkett said earlier this month it had submitted a registration filing for an initial public offering (IPO) of shares.
The Paris-based group, which is jointly owned by KKR and the Deconinck family shareholders, had said the filing was a first step towards a Paris stock market listing and said the company would pursue its growth strategy abroad.
