PARIS, May 12 (Reuters) - ALD, the car leasing unit of French bank Societe Generale (SocGen), said on Friday it has registered its intention with the French markets regulator AMF for a flotation.
SocGen, JP Morgan and Credit Suisse have been appointed as global coordinators for ALD’s initial public offering, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters earlier this week.
The business could be valued at between 6 billion euros and 9 billion euros ($9.8 billion) in the IPO, the sources said. SocGen plans to sell a 20-25 percent stake in ALD. “The completion of the contemplated listing is subject to a number of factors including, among others, receiving the AMF’s visa on the prospectus ... and the admission to trading on the regulated market of Euronext Paris as well as favourable market conditions,” the company said.
