Volkswagen Announces Pricing of 25% Equity Stake Sale in Porsche; Maintaining EUR 326 FVE

Richard Hilgert Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Richard Hilgert |

No-moat Volkswagen said the price range for the Porsche AG preferred IPO would be EUR 76.50-EUR 82.50. At the midpoint, this values the equity stake of Porsche AG being sold in an initial public offering and to Porsche Automobil Holding SE, the investment firm of founding families Porsche and Piech, at EUR 18.8 billion, just below the high end of our estimated EUR 14 billion-EUR 19 billion range (see our Volkswagen Sept. 6 note). Volkswagen split the capital of Porsche into 50% ordinary shares and 50% preferred shares. The equity stake sale includes Porsche Automobil Holding purchasing 25% of the ordinary shares at a 7.5% premium to the preferred IPO price. The company plans to begin trading preferred shares on Sept. 29. Based on the figures in Volkswagen’s pricing announcement, we estimate the total number of Porsche equity shares at 911 million, a nod to the model most associated with the Porsche brand, the 911. Volkswagen says that it will hold a December shareholder meeting to vote on a special dividend of 49% of the gross proceeds.
