Overview of the company and its structure

Porsche AG is a German automotive company specialising in high-performance sport cars, as well as SUVs and sedans. It’s controlled by parent company Volkswagen Group, which is the largest automaker in Europe in terms of sales and the second largest worldwide. In turn, VW is owned by holding company Porsche SE, which has a 31.4% stake in the company and also claims more than 50% of its voting rights distribution.

Among the automotive’s famous line-up are the 718, 999, Taycan, Panamera, Macan, and Cayenne models. The business was founded in 1931 with headquarters in Stuttgart. It’s primarily a car manufacturer but also provides financial, engineering, and design services, as well as investment management.

When is Porsche’s IPO date?

The IPO is expected to happen in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to Bloomberg.

Volkswagen has already chosen its underwriters for the IPO, which include financial giants Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, and Bank of America. Given that Porsche is a valuable German company​, it’s likely that it will debut on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

What will Porsche’s share price be?

It’s too early to confirm a share price for the business, although this will be revealed closer to its IPO date. However, Reuters reports that the parent company is expecting to list around 25% of Porsche AG stock in total.

Porsche’s valuation in 2022

The automaker’s valuation has been estimated at around €90bn ($102bn) by various analysts. This is close to Volkswagen’s current market value of around €116bn, and supersedes that of other German automotive giants, such as BMW (€51bn) and Mercedes-Benz (€68bn), which have been listed on the stock market for years.

Upon initial announcement of the IPO, shares in VW and Porsche SE jumped by 10.2% and 15.2%, suggesting that investors may expect Porsche’s brand value to increase in the long term, along with its parent companies.

What are Porsche’s financials like?

Over the past decade, the company saw a strong increase in revenue, almost tripling from €10.9bn in 2011 to €30.3bn in 2021. It also saw earnings increase by 24.5% when compared with 2020, showing the boom for vehicles after the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the financial year ending 2021, the business delivered 302,000 sports cars to customers, an increase of 10.9% versus the previous year. China and the US are the largest markets in terms of sales, where increases of 7.5% and 22.2% were witnessed. According to Statista, the company’s Taycan model was met with unexpected demand in North America in 2021, where EV stocks are particularly in high demand.

Please note that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

Why may investors be interested in the IPO?

According to the same Bloomberg report mentioned earlier, some advisers expect Porsche’s market cap to be even higher than predicted, given the recent growth of other luxury and electric car stocks​. One of the motives for the IPO is to help finance the development of electric vehicles, as VW will have spent approximately €89bn on related software and technologies leading up to 2026.

The separation from its parent companies could offer new ways of funding, as its complex shareholder structure currently limits the amount of cash and equity the business is able to make.

Why may some choose to avoid it?

VW is creating a dual-class ownership structure of Porsche stock, meaning that retail investors and fund managers won’t have any voting rights. It plans to offer these only to its parent company and the largest shareholder. Instead, shareholders could earn interest in the form of dividends.

The Porsche and Piech families’ history has been rather volatile in terms of structure and ownership. In 2009, the business sold its brand to VW in order to avoid bankruptcy for a total of €8.4bn, according to Fortune. Although it planned to pay back its debt, it was unable to following the financial crisis, giving an impression of a slightly hostile takeover. Therefore, this IPO could be the company’s last chance to claim independence from its owners.
