After just over a year in the hands of the investment fund Platinum Equity, IngramMicro launches to sell part of its shares in a Public Offer of Sale to go public. It has been announced by the corporation itself that has prepared the first draft in the Security and Exchange Commission (Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC) from the United States.
The process, even at a very early stage, must be reviewed by the competent body and approved, based on market requirements and other conditions established. It will be then when the start of this IPO operation can be made public, in which neither number of shares nor prices have been determined for the same.
What is clear is that Platinum Equity wants to find the maximum performance of the wholesaler and for this, it will take advantage of the stock market. A strategy that, as the CEO, Paul Bay commented, has become more aggressive and is going through a process of modernizing tools both internally and for partners in which the new owner of Ingram Micro is supporting with investments.
If Ingram Micro’s IPO process is successfully completed, the corporation would become the thirteenth company in the media, technology and telecommunications category to be listed on the American Stock Exchange in the first half of the year. A low level of IPOs compared to the 52 that went out in the same period last year, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.
