STOCKHOLM, June 16 Scandinavian food company
Scandi Standard said on Monday it would launch an initial public
offering in Stockholm that would give it a market capitalisation
of up to 2.4 billion Swedish crowns ($361 million).
The company, which makes food products based on chicken and
had adjusted EBITDA earnings of 479 million crowns on pro forma
sales of 5.2 billion last year, said its shares would be sold at
33 to 40 crowns each.
If the owners decide to increase the offering in full and if
the over-allotment option is fully exercised, it will comprise
39.6 million shares, representing 65 per cent of the total
number of shares in the company.
Scandi Standard is owned by London-based private equity firm
CapVest and Swedish farming association Lantmannen.
