Furla delays IPO

Furla delays IPO

Furla has confirmed the delay of their IPO. The company had initially
revealed its plan to delay their IPO seven months ago, and on Monday,
Alberto Camerlengo, Furla’s CEO, confirmed the IPO would be delayed in an
interview with business newspaper Affari e Finanza.

Furla will continue to remain in the hands of Furlanetto, the founding
family of Furla. The company has not ruled out plans to go public entirely,
but this will not be done in the short term.

Tamburi Investment Partners, an investment partner that has minority stakes
in brands including Hugo Boss and Moncler, had a 15 percent stake in Furla
that they sold for 35 million dollars last October. Bloom, the
holding company owned by Furla president Giovanna Furletto and her
children, bought back the shares. Bloom currently owns 70 percent of the
company with the remaining 30 percent in the hands of other Furletto family

Despite delaying their IPO, Furla’s business is still doing very well. The
company saw six years of double digit growth, with growth still on the
upward trend, but only in the single digits as of 2018. Furla plans on
renovating their stores with a new design in the coming months, and they
plan on restructuring their distribution plan by decreasing their number of
retailers. The company currently has 490 stores in its fleet, of which 163
are franchises.
